    All those in the Executive and Legislative Branches knew this months ago and did nothing. If the government shuts down, it will be directly due to both of these parts of the government, as if they intended to do so. I saw a tv add today obviously by the Democrats attempting to blame the Republicans from their statement they would let the government shut down if Obamacare is not dismantled, as if these Republicans can shut down the government by themselves. Sorry, that's not how the government works. Since the elephants control the House and the donkeys control the Senate, any blame will be shared amongst them.

    Not quite. According to the Constitution, revenue and spending bills must originate in the House of Representatives, currently sort of under the control of Republicans. ..... If the House chooses to pass FY2014 funding legislation including a 'poison pill' unacceptable to the Senate or the Executive branch, well, let the chips fall where they may.

    It has been very few years that the politicians did not drag out this decision lamenting on how to distribute the money to their buddies. I guess this is their way of making it look like they fought for the losing companies that did not pad their wallets enough. How about we try an experiment 1 year and freeze all politician's assets while they are in office? No monetary investment in the fight, they might just knock out the budget. Oh such wishful thinking.
