(video in comments) Just before the shutdown, the House changed the rule for calling for a vote on a bill. Previously, any sitting member could call for a vote, now only Boehner can. Do you think this shutdown was planned?
It was anticipated by the Republicans. It was planned by the Democrats. Namely, Reid and Obama.
Well, the GOP certainly had been talking about it well ahead of time.
Of course it was planned. The WH and the lib congress shoved obamacare down our throats. Now the con house is fighting back.
I wouldn't say "shoved" when the majority of America wants healthcare reform and the SCOTUS upheld the law. But you keep believing whatever keeps you angriest.
It was planned years ago. The Koch brothers and a couple other crazy people got together and thought this plan up. Idk if it was so down to a tee like when and what not...
Kind of hard to believe it was not planned
When I started using the word "hijacked" two weeks ago to describe what the tea people faction and their hangers-on have done to our democratic process, this is an example of what I mean.
Yes I do. Politicians are trying to destroy our freedoms, way of life, and set up a two tier nation. Them and us.
Wow! Seems pretty planned to me. This is disgusting!!
By that time yes
The house now has enough votes to pass a budget but Boehner won't call for a vote.
Something smells fishy.
Is it because you are near the ocean @matt?
