Here we are folks, GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN!!!
House Leadership has stated they will not offer up any more Continuing Resolutions (CR) to avoid a government shutdown tonight (9/30/2013). The United States government will basically be run by a skeleton crew of folks who have been deemed “essential personnel”.
While I did not want to see a government shutdown, I have to say that I am pleased that Democrats have stood up and decided to tell Republicans NO! Sometimes you have to take a step back to take 2 steps forward. Up to now it has not worked for Democrats to compromise on CRs and raising the debt limit and we have received in return is running gov’t 1 crisis after another.
That is no way for the gov’t of the United States to be run
It’s my belief that Republicans have always wanted a government shutdown since the day after President Obama won re-election. For 4 years Republicans tweeted daily a countdown of the last time the Senate passed a budget. So when the Senate finally passed a budget (I will admit Dems should have been passed a budget a long time ago) you would think House Republicans would be thrilled and anxious to start debate on that budget. Instead Republicans refused to go to conference to hammer out a budget deal and decided to continue to run gov’t by CRs. Because with CRs Republicans could negotiate (and I use that term loosely) draconian cuts to spending and now they are looking to defund or delay Obamacare. Passing a budget would only take away the negotiating power of Republicans and that is something they do not want to lose, without that power they would not be able to achieve their #1 goal and that’s obstructing President Obama and government from moving forward.
Now with the government shutdown, who will blink first??

Last I read (and this was much earlier in the day) Ryan basically said and I’m paraphrasing: “Well, we’ve done all we can. We’ve tried to negotiate. Now it’s up to the winds.” This, of course, in the midst of an outrageous set of demands that basically amounted to the 2012 Ryan-Romney platform. He’s one of the quiet architects, to be sure. He’s literally waiting for the winds to blow and he’ll jump like a rat from the sinking ship onto the one that stays afloat. A number of GOPers are starting to question and buck a shutdown. I think Roll Call speculated correctly he just might try another run in 2016, and if he does he’ll want to align himself with the winning ship. If that isn’t the Shutdown ship he’ll weasel out by keeping a low profile. He’s regrouping, that’s all, and positioning himself as party leader and figurehead. 1 likes
Sorry it has taken me so long to respond but it looks like you hit the head right on the head with Ryan. He absolutely kept a low-profile and even the ideas he offered were those the President offered. The only problem is that once again the Repubs are not offering anything in return and POTUS will look for revenue from closing tax breaks
IS obama THE RIDICULOUS PUPPET OF JACOB ROTHSCHILD, BENJAMIN DE ROTHSCHILD, ARIANE DE ROTHSCHILD AND EVELYN DE ROTHSCHILD ?
” LaRouche: Behind The Shutdown & Debt Ceiling Swindle Wall St. Orders Obama To Kill Glass-Steagall
PDF leaflet available here. http://larouchepac.com/node/28432
Wall Street had demanded that President Barack Obama stop the reinstatement of Glass Steagall at all costs and instead move ahead with more bailouts and bail-in looting of the American people to preserve their thoroughly bankrupt system. The Wall Street policy means an acceleration of crippling hyperinflation, devastating austerity and, ultimately, mass murder of the nation’s most vulnerable citizens.
Several highly qualified Washington sources have confirmed that this was the ultimatum delivered by the Wall Street delegation that met privately with Obama on Wednesday afternoon Oct. 2 at the White House. The delegation was organized by the Financial Services Forum, a coalition of the nation’s 19 biggest banks and insurance companies, and included Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase; Lloyd Blankfein, CEO of Goldman Sachs; Brian Moynihan, CEO of Bank of America; Michael Corbat, CEO of Citibank; and Anshu Jain, CEO of Deutsche Bank.
IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde delivered the same message in an interview with the Financial Times on Oct. 4, in which she demanded that the Federal Reserve maintain the $85 billion a month quantitative easing bailout of the top Wall Street and Europe banks indefinitely. And Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, speaking for Obama, threatened that any U.S. default will trigger a financial crisis far worse than the September 2008 meltdown.
The reality, as bluntly stated by Lyndon LaRouche today, is that the ongoing government shutdown and threatened default on U.S. sovereign debt on Oct. 17 is nothing more than an orchestrated swindle, aimed at conditioning the American people for the murderous policies that have already been accepted by Obama and by leading Congressional Republicans.
LaRouche warned: “Unless Glass Steagall is passed into law immediately, Obama and Wall Street plan to unleash the worst mass murder austerity and looting of the American people ever. The total separation of commercial banking from all the gambling activities under Glass Steagall is the only remedy. Bankrupt Wall Street now, before they can unleash their genocidal schemes full-force. President Obama is nothing but a tool of these Wall Street interests, as evidenced by his slavish commitment to maintain the bailout/bail-in program and stop Glass Steagall.”
LaRouche continued: “In a matter of days or weeks, Obama and his Congressional Republican cohorts, on orders from Wall Street, are going to unleash absolute Hell on the American public through even deeper killer austerity cuts than the sequestration of the past months. The government shutdown is the biggest dog and pony show ever, intended to prepare the population to accept more hyperinflation, more bailouts and bail-ins, and worsening conditions so that Wall Street can survive a bit longer while honest, hard-working Americans die in ever greater numbers.
“It is time for Congress to break from Wall Street and the bankers stooge in the White House, and do the only thing that can set the United States back on a course of genuine prosperity: Pass Glass Steagall by a veto-proof majority this week.”
“By passing Glass Steagall, the vise-grip of Wall Street is immediately broken. Once the too-big-to-fail banks are no longer kept alive by tax-payers bailouts and depositor bail-ins, they go under. Good riddance! We are then left with a viable but undercapitalized commercial banking system and with an immediate opportunity to revive Federal government credit to launch great economic projects like NAWAPA and an Apollo-style crash international program for commercial thermonuclear fusion energy.”
“The moment of truth has arrived,” LaRouche concluded, “and I call on the American people to demand that Congress stop behaving like a bunch of corrupt fools, going along with the Wall Street Obama swindle. Pass Glass Steagall, wipe out the power of Wall Street and their European allies, and get on with the business of reviving this nation and the world around a plan of genuine development, as my colleagues and I have spelled out.” ” http://larouchepac.com/node/28430 http://larouchepac.com/node/28498
