The most honest thing they could do
A top House Republican said Monday President Obama might try to force a government shutdown to hurt Republicans.
Rep. Spencer Bachus (R-Ala.), the top GOP member of the influential House Financial Services Committee, said Republicans should be prepared to be “brave” in the face of a shutdown.
“I would think when we send the spending bills to the president he will veto them, and then the hard vote will be when he sends them back and we will be faced with another situation where he will probably try to force us to shut government down and we are going to have to be brave this time,” Bachus explained on the Fox Business Network. </em>
Good. Shut it down. Far better than passing out yet more graft as is their custom. Enjoy your “reign”, GOP. Methinks it will be brief.
