Here We Go Again

A US government shutdown remains a possibility after the US Senate [on Friday] rejected a stop-gap spending bill that had passed the Republican-controlled House of Representatives hours earlier.

As voting continued on the measure, Democrats had rounded up enough votes to defeat the bill, which they said did not contain sufficient aid for victims of natural disasters.


Congress is up against a 30 September deadline, when the fiscal year ends and government money runs out.

So who’s the party that wants to destroy the world now? The Democrats must think this will make them look tough. But don’t worry, there will be no government shutdown. Unless enough Americans get fed up and march on Washington. Yeah, don’t worry. There will be no government shutdown. If anything, those pathetic Democrats will, in their now traditional fashion, cave and end up voting for something that has NO aid for victims of natural disasters.

....but hey, do what you will anyway.


The Senate reached a tentative spending deal Monday night.


The apparent breakthrough came after the Federal Emergency Management Agency indicated it had enough money to squeak through the end of the fiscal year Friday night, eliminating one of the main points of partisan contention


Never mind. We have enough money.
