    It's not just about the money. The GOP is trying to ram social policy through in conjunction with the budget.

    In addition to unconditionally declaring that no taxes of any description can be raised on anyone at all.

    More hostage-taking and groveling at the feet of Grover Norquist, whoever the fuck he is.

    You should come to Connecticut, the fairyland of Make Believe. Not only did the GOP fail to win any Congressional or statewide offices in the midterms, but the House Minority Leader was just complaining they gave the Governor too MUCH power to cut spending. I wonder what he would have said if that was a Repub Governor. Go Figue.

    I heard a MSM newscaster the other day referring to the pledge that most GOP Congressman have signed, saying that they would never raise taxes. The reporter acted like due to this pledge, it would be sacrilegious to expect any GOP Congressman to raise taxes.

    Makes me wonder what would happen if all Democratic Congressman signed a pledge that they would never cut education spending one penny. Would the MSM consider them equally noble as the GOP pledge signers are being treated?

    For the GOP, voting to maintain or raise education spending is akin to voting against themselves.

    What I don't like about the shutdown is everything is not shutdown. If the state doesn't have authority to spend a dime, then it shouldn't. Yes, people will suffer, but that fact alone would help get a deal done.
