Re: Potential Government Shut Down

This is all political theater at its finest. When it's all done they will be the only ones clapping and shouting bravo.

Re: Potential Government Shut Down

I don't give a **** who has to pass what. I work for the government but as a contractor which means if they shut down I don't get paid. My wife does becuase she's a federal employee but ol' papa bear get's zilch!

I hope they get this thing together and fast because this is bullshit !

It's not automatic. Congress has to pass legislation after the fact to pay employees missed pay while on furlough. They've always done it in the past, but it's not a given.

Re: Potential Government Shut Down

Doesn't matter; she'll get something which I'm happy for but this needs to be resolved. This game that politicians play pisses me off. Rich ass people who are out to keep other rich ass people happy while kicking me in the ass. Blows me. F'n blows me.

Pass the freaking bill already please.

I would love to see politicians not pay themselves and their staff.

The President and Congress are exempt from the shutdown due to how they're paid.

Re: Potential Government Shut Down

maybe they could all pledge to set their salary at $1 for a year if a budget deal isn't reached by the next extension?

Good one.

If he wins again we will know who the bigger joke is, him or the sad sack of shit that is the republican party.

Not sure who yet....shame Christie isn't running. Michelle Bachmann is a strong possibility. But with numbers like these as long as the GOP doesn't run Palin or Gingrich (negative opinions too high) there's a solid chance of regaining the WH in 2012.

Sure hope Bachmann doesn't run, agree about Christie. But those who would probably vote for Christie anyway are not a large contingency. Could be a VP candidate. He did make the finals of VP Madness (against Marc Rubio) on MittRomneyCentral.com

As for is there anyone who can beat President Obama? Well, it's still early. Past elections should have taught us that

Re: Potential Government Shut Down

Bachmann makes Palin look tame. Doubt she could even get the nomination let alone beat Obama. Right now I don't see a viable candidate, but as SS said it's early.
