  • New Republican strategy to eliminate the CR and piecemeal the budget

    So there's a new strategy making the rounds - we'll see soon how real it is. But basically it's this: rather than yielding to Reid and Obama's desire to shut down the government over a delay, the Republicans in the House may start to pass individual budget measures for essential things, and leave things that aren't deemed essential to just simply go without funding - perhaps even permanently.

    In the process, Obamacare simply doesn't get funded, and the Republicans start efforts to advance their own plan which has been in development over the last several months.

    Apparently the establishment Republicans like Peter King are howling over this, but Boehner is faced with either doing this, sitting on the bill he just proposed, or hitting the nuclear button and moving against the base and siding with the Democrats.

    That won't play either. CR still need to go to the Senate, and they will just update the bills to reflect the all funding at FY13 levels. Thus sending the bill to conference.

      It's good to see the Republicans working so hard to avoid the obstructionism of Obama and Reid.

        That's fine as far as the Republicans are concerned. It gives them plenty of cover with the public saying that they've offered everything, including obamacare funding in exchange for the same delay that big business got, as well as the point that they've also sent over several individual bills for essential services.

          It's sad to see a libertarian suck up to the GOP.

              Stopped reading after this nonsense.

                    Won't happen.

                      It's not a new strategy. They did this in 2011 instead of actually doing a budget that year. That year we came about 3 days from shutting down. This government will shut down tomorrow. But you know, it's just the nonessential stuff. Really, they are giving people 2 days to leave the National parks if they are already there and shutting everyone else out. DC's trash won't get picked up (which explains why some of these asshats are still here, they didn't get picked up during the last government shut down in the 1990s). Depending on the length it will cost US taxpayers $1-2 billion just to shut and reopen the various impacted government agencies and put back to work the estimated 800, 000 to 1 million federal employees. All of whom already had 6 days of unpaid leave this fiscal year and have had a pay freeze for the last 4 years. On the upside the President and Congress will continue to get paid and keep some of their staff, though not all, only the ones deemed critical to wiping their asses or whatever. As far as I am concerned they are all asshats, but the Republicans in the House are the worst, between that dip****s 21 hour fillibuster and their last minute ditch efforts to stop Obamacare which is already law, voted in 3 years ago. And here's the really funny part, if it shuts down tomorrow (which I would guess it will) Obamacare will still roll out on time tomorrow.

                        Suck up? We're trying to displace it and turn it into a party that can house libertarians. It's working great so far.

                          This is actually what I hope happens. This would be a great result because it would give us a primary list in the House to match the one that was just collected in the Senate. It would make 2014 that much more interesting.

                            you must have missed the memo,rethugs are forcing a shut down either that or just like any typical rep you want the shut down but not the responsibility of owning it. fortunately a majority of people see right through it.

                              yes a bigger majority for us in the senate and we'll take back the house.
