TGIF…Gov’t Shutdown Edition

Morning meese….

Well it looks like the gov’t shutdown overnight even after Chuck Schumer and Jowls McTurtle had a bi-partisan plan all ready to pass.

Enter side-left Rand Paul and his play for the limelight. After voting to pass the GOPTaxScam he should have just stayed in his seat and shut up. Everything he cried about was right on the money but he should have thought about it before he voted to pass the Scam of the century, allowing the deficit to be blown sky high.

Like the boy crying wolf when he invited the wolf over for dinner and found out he was on the menu.

It’s a wonder Chuck, Nancy and the Dems in Congress don’t want to do one of two things…Kiss Rand or laugh like hyenas because have no doubt the Cons were all set to make any shutdown look like it was Nancy and the Dems fault. No chance of that now thanks to Rand.

Could we be so lucky as for this to happen on the Republican side of the House…

 

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) made a unanimous consent request to expedite a vote on the budget measure shortly before 6 p.m. Thursday. Paul objected, however, demanding first a vote on an amendment to the bill that would reinstate spending limits that it removed. Unless Paul yields before midnight EST, the earliest the Senate will be able to vote on the measure is early Friday, an hour past the government funding deadline. And that is just a vote to end debate. After the Senate clears that hurdle, Paul could speak for another hour — as could other senators — before the Senate votes on final passage.

After the Senate, the bill would need to go to the House, move out of the Rules Committee, have House lawmakers adopt a rule governing debate for the bill and then get that last passage vote.

 

Rand smiling for the cameras…god, I hate all Republicans..

    Hiya, Batch! I share your hatred of “Republics.” How absolutely irresponsible and shitty they are. I wish karma would get back from her vacation and start kicking them around.

    Sending hugs to you—will see you in the Nest later!

      Head Start, CHIP, anything government-funded, basically. And there are white Republicans who think this sort of inhumane behavior is just what we need as a country. They’re not even trying to hide their racism and xenophobia anymore.
