  •  I think the cost of re-opening the Government (16+ / 0-)

    should be going up. The Dems agreed to the Republican budget number. For each day the Government is closed, the budget should be increased by a $1B. The diarist is absolutely correct - we need to take this play out of their playbook forever. The only way to do that is make it hurt.

    The United States does not negotiate with terrorists - that includes Republicans.

    •  I was thinking that as well. (0+ / 0-)

      The lowered Budget was a mistake, created to display the humiliation earned by offering it. It worked. It should not have worked then, and is surely not applicable now.

      I would strongly favor your proposal, although I might up the ante to $5 B/day. It needs to hurt like a broken leg, not a hangnail.
