  •  The Repugs are 100% at fault here (9+ / 0-)

    If the Democrats and President Obama had given them their way this time, it would have established this sort of extreme extortion as a commonplace way to do legislative business. They've already been using the threat of either government shutdown or government default on every single major budget vote that's come along in six years. Letting them make good on their threat will do one of two things. It will either prove that the Democrats are right and the Republicans have become the party of delusional extremists who aren't fit to govern, or the Republicans will have proved their point that government is evil and unnecessary and we will all be infinitely better living in an anarchist state. Place your bets.
