I'm so sick of the games Congress is playing while real people are hurting. This morning Bill Kristol was emphasizing that it's not the end of the world but that all depends on what side of the fence you are on. He certainly doesn't have a need the nutritional food program for children. He said they could get all the help they need from churches.
The House of Representatives is trying to pass piece meal legislation but only on a 2/3 majority vote to keep Democrats from submitting a clean bill amendment. The Senate refuses to let the House dictate the rules and choose what programs to fund.
This morning Joe Scarborough was making a big deal out the healthcare.gov crashing, saying that there's no reason for that. There is a 6-month enrollment period to iron out all the glitches. We are going to continue to get this constant drip of bad news from the right.
The president invited leadership to the White House this afternoon to talk out their differences. John Boehner has already said that he won't deal unless some concessions are made on the Affordable Care Act. Like that's gonna happen.
Let's get something straight; this shutdown is just not the work of 40 Tea Party members because it takes 217 votes to pass a bill in the House.
This shutdown could end in one hour because the votes for a clean are there.
