You can sense the disappointment in the voice of George Stephanopoulos. His party and Obama are so eager for a repeat of the 1995 government shutdown so they can ignore the fact Obama wants to spend us into oblivion and if the GOP opposes they can trot out Grandma and tell people those nasty Republicans are forcing her to eat dogfood.
Republicans will pass short-term measures to keep funding the government rather than allow a shutdown, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said Tuesday.It's hard to believe the Democrats would keep leading us down the path of financial ruin considering how dearly it cost them at the polls last November. They're banking on the pom-pom media to help them with a rerun of 1995 but I sense it will be a lot different this time around. We cannot sustain trillion-dollar deficits. Even the media and the left are realizing that. Granted, your typical lamestream media types have no clue.
Ryan, the chairman of the House Budget Committee, said that if the GOP-held House can't reach an agreement with President Obama and Democrats in Congress on a continuing resolution ("CR") funding government the rest of this fiscal year, they would pursue temporary CRs, and not allow a government shutdown.
"If we don't get agreement in the meantime, yes, we do think there's going to be some sort of situation where there's a short-term CR," Ryan said on "Good Morning America."
On Monday, the president offered a budget plan that holds out the prospect of eventually bringing deficits under control through spending cuts and tax increases.Eventually? Like when? The year 2500?
