    More than a trillion dollar was issued for corporations to keep the economy going but yet they can't pay the troopsicon_exclaim.gif

    Looks like President Obama and congress are beginning to show their true colors.

    WASHINGTON – The Obama administration warned Wednesday that a federal shutdown would undermine the economic recovery, delay pay to U.S. troops fighting in three wars, slow the processing of tax returns and limit small business loans and government-backed mortgages during peak home buying season.

    The dire message, delivered two days before the federal government's spending authority expires, appeared aimed at jolting congressional Republicans into a budget compromise. Billions of dollars apart, congressional negotiators were working to strike a deal by Friday to avert a shutdown by setting spending limits through the end of September. The last such shutdown took place 15 years ago and lasted 21 days.

    President Barack Obama telephoned House Speaker John Boehner on Wednesday, and Boehner's office said the speaker told Obama he was hopeful a deal could be reached.

    Everyone is holding everyone hostage. It's a nonpartisan clusterfuck of massive proportions . . . no one wants to take responsibility and everyone is taking cover. It's a perpetual blamegame and no one wants accountability.

    You will note too, that very few Dems are calling out the repubs for not hitting the Pentagon war mashine with substantial cuts, 90+% of the suggested cuts come for the poor and safety nets for the the middle class. All the while subsidies in the billions are kept in line for big oil who have broken profit records in recent years, and Large corps like GE payed no or little taxes. This is sick !! The funny thing is that the dumb fuck TBaggers are duped into backing big business and big oil much to their own demise. The Koch Bro's must be enjoying a great laugh at their expense.
