Cantor: It's Dems Fault If Government Shuts Down

The public will know full well who is to blame if a budget accord isn’t reached by April 8, causing the government to shut down, says House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, The Hill reports. It’s Democrats.


Their failure to come up with a viable spending plan is the cause, he says. "In the scope of our debt crisis, if Senator [Harry] Reid and Senator [Charles] Schumer force the government to partially shut down over [the GOP's] sensible spending cuts, Americans will hold them accountable," Cantor said in a statement Monday.

"The Reid/Schumer leadership team has failed to take our fiscal crisis seriously, as members of their own Democratic caucus have pointed out. Our federal government borrows nearly 40 cents of each dollar it spends, yet Senate Democrats want to keep spending money that we don't have."

Under Bush, the debt level was raised 7 times! Did you hear any fuss about it?

Cantor and Co. are holding a gun to the US economy and if they don't get what they want they are willing to pull the trigger. Since when does the USA give in to terrorists?

<span style="color: #990000"> <span style='font-size: 11pt'>BWA HA HA HA! Reverse reality! The Democratics agreed to the 34 billion the Republicans originally put out there, and then, Republicans about doubled it, 64 billion....taking away everything that is keeping people safe....and with their Constitutional rights intact</span>. </span>

Their failure to come up with a viable spending plan is the cause, he says.

<span style="color: #990000"> <span style='font-size: 11pt'> Sensible???? LMAO...Americans will not hold Democratics responsible...at least four of their new governors couldn't even get re-elected right now, the Polls show, Wisc. and Fla, among them.</span> </span>

Big Brother in your bedrooms, in your doctors office, in your medicine cabinet, in your blood tests, in your Union, in your kids classrooms,..... ah hem, weren't they saying they wanted to get Government out of our lives, LMAO!

Hypocrites! They are doing what they always do, hitting hard with their pre-election hidden agenda, that has absolutely NOTHING to do with fiscal responsibility...and everything to do with social issues, pandering to their radical extremist base.

What a crock!

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Just days away from a deadline on funding the federal government, Sen. Chuck Schumer called on Speaker Boehner to drop the Tea Party and accept a budget deal.

“The bottom line is the Tea Party continues to pull at Speaker Boehner and say ‘don’t come to any compromise.’ Their positions continue to be extreme and we know that HR 1 will not pass the Senate and the President would veto it,” the Senator from New York told MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell. “Their solution just doesn’t work, and would lead, if they stick with it and if Boehner sticks with them, it will lead to a government shutdown.”

Schumer said there hasn’t been “too much progress” on solving the spending stalemate yet. But, he says Democrats are willing to compromise.

“We’ve proposed something very reasonable. <span style='font-size: 14pt'>We’ve met them halfway.</span> They want 60 billion in cuts below the President’s number,” said Schumer on Tuesday. “We were happy to stay with the freeze at the President’s number, <span style='font-size: 14pt'>but we are willing to meet them halfway,</span> and today Leader Reid said that we are willing to cut $30 billion.”

Though, Schumer says measures like cutting Planned Parenthood or the EPA will not be accepted and “any thought to the contrary is wrong."

Four weeks ago, the Congress voted to simply continue temporary funding for a few more weeks.

Speaker of the House John Boehner, approaching this deadline with all the certitude and determination that he has brought to all the other deadlines, tried to restore the possibility of doing another temporary budget extension.

"I'm not putting any options on the table or take any options off the table. Our goal is to cut spending because it'll offer a better environment for job creators in America. That is our goal and we'll continue to pursue our goal," Boehner said today. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/crazy.gif /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smirk.gif
<span style='font-size: 14pt'>
On Thursday, Tea Party supporters will descend on the Capitol to protest the "lack of leadership" and "lack of courage" that has led "Members of Congress to abandon their service to the people by passing continuing resolutions instead of cutting the $100 billion they pledged."</span> </div></div>

Does the Tea Party think they run the whole country now? Or, should I ask if Koch et al, is running it?

Republicans are doing exactly the same things that were done in the Soviet Union, China, and Nazi Germany to establish dictatorship.

1.Threaten intellectuals and limit their free speech
2.Ban labor unions to limit their free speech
3.Eliminate separation between church and state
4.Disenfranchise voters that disagree with you
5.Establish a theocratic Christian dictatorship

This would be hard to believe, if it wasn't actually happening.
