Once again, thanks to the Media’s yen to promote anything Obamaesque, the true facts of whether the government will shut down or not, whose fault it would be, and why it might shut down, are not being relayed to the American public.
So, here are a few facts:
A. The House bill was adulterated by the Senate and sent back to the House. The House offered a compromise that: 1–delays the start of Obama-scare for individuals; 2 — fully funds the Military, no matter how negotiations evolve; does NOT SHUT DOWN THE GOVERNMENT, but offers a continuing resolution.
B. The Republican-controlled House has repeatedly sought to work with President Obama and the Senate, but Harry Reid has not only refused to consider anything the House passes, but publicly excoriates anything Conservatives believe. The House has passed numerous bills and, even before the vote is taken, President Obama and Senator Reid expound on how they will NOT accept anything that the House sends over.
C. The Media is trying to misconstrue the facts so that, if the government shuts down, Republicans will be blamed! In fact, NOT ONE REPUBLICAN has supported shutting down the government. The ONLY people talking about shutting down the government are President Obama and the Democrats. Here are just a few of the comments by President Obama, and Democrats to prove that the potential shut down of government will be the fault of the Democrats because Democrats have refused to work with the House. (Ironically, Obama will talk with the leader of radial islamist Iran, but NOT the United States House of Representatives!)
D. Here are paraphrased comments from the Democrats who profess to NOT want a government shut-down; but, are doing everything in their power to shut down the government so they can blame Republicans:
1 –I will NOT negotiate with Congress (President Obama).
2 — We will NOT accept this bill if the House adds anything! (Schumer)
3 — The Republicans are using extortion to get their way. (Obama, again.)
So, who is really trying to shut down the government? Well, if you refuse to negotiate (Obama and Harry Reid), continually call Conservative names (Schumer and Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi), it kind of sounds as though the Democrats are at fault.
Republicans WANT a budget.
Republicans WANT a continuing resolution.
Republicans WANT middle class Americans to have the same benefits as Congress, and the big businesses have been granted through waivers.
Who is shutting down the government?
The Democrats and President Obama. That’s who!
