Didn’t we just do this? Oh yeah. The Continuing Resolution. Has it been three weeks already? Time sure does fly fast.
Boehner is in a real mess. Three groups, all with different demands:
The fussy 54 says, “If we don’t get our 10 bajillion dollars ($100B, but I like the word bajillion) in spending cuts, we ain’t signing it. Let the government shut down. It ain’t 1994, dude.”
House Democrats are just watching Boehner vs. the Tea Party with their buckets of 1200-calorie popcorn and Red Vines®.
Senate Democrats say, “If the bill has 10 bajillion dollars in spending cuts, we ain’t signing it.”
The pro-birth crowd says, “Any legislation that goes through here better defund Planned Parenthood. We don’t care about the government shutting down either.”
That gavel sure is a lot heavier than you thought, huh, Mr. Spreaker?
