This is important but in addition 60% of discretionary spending went to defense while other spending was reduced.

This will put a real bitter taste in their mouths. Obama raised taxes funneling more money out of the pockets of the American people to the government but now we can watch them act like a bunch of wet cats as they watch R's have more control over the purse.

FOOLS! Did they not think about that as they cheered Obama helping him rob the American people.

Previously, Republicans tied funding the government to repealing health care for Americans. This time they tied funding to repealing financial regulations. The only difference is that this time they succeeded.

The WH spent a lot of time lobbying the Dems in Congress to vote FOR this bill.
Obama and his minions want this bill passed.

SO I see she did do something. I do give her credit for that.

Later in the day, however, Sen. Warren announced her introduction of an amendment to the spending bill, along with Republican Sen. David Vitter of Louisiana, which would strip from the overall package one of its most caustic and controversial measures—a provision written by CitiBank lobbyists which would undo regulations of high-risk derivative trading that were imposed after the financial crash of 2008.

Hopefully we can find what the vote on that was. I am curious though, how many willing to pat Warren on the back is also willing to give Vitters credit and will be also be willing to vote "no" if in the end the wording is in there?

That's what I meant by "they succeeded". Many Dems are voting to fund the government in spite of the D-F poison pill.

Her views were parroted by many in the media.

Now Warren and some of the same parrots in the media are now justifying a potential shutdown as patriotic and pro-middle class if it were to be over liberal reasons.


How many Democrats have intelligence and integrity to NOT flip flop such egregiously in such a short time?
"The intentions justify the means"

Which is liberalism in a nutshell.

I give both of them credit, I would not have cared if it was Vitter on the podium, wrong is wrong and I give him credit for stepping up when far too many are silent on this from both parties.

Seriously, aren't we all better off with a government shut down? Its not like Congress or the White House have been doing anything productive for quite some time.
