Gotta love those Republicans. They spend a fortune on a worthless war, give tax cuts to corporations and the rich, then threaten to shut down the entire government and default on the debt they caused.

Maybe I’ll do the same with my credit cards. Go on a spending spree and tell the credit companies to pound sand.

So much money was lost in the last shutdown (that they caused). People were hurt.

It's time we had a new Republican party. I think they need to rename themselves.

It seems mitch blinked and they are "allowing" a 2 month extension.

Chuck Schumer's comments, while true, may well come back to bite us in December.

When should we begin ItsaZoo?

Th unfortunate aspect of the war we started without just cause is great for the economy in a sick perverted way. It's a real bummer however, for the thousands dead and maimed for life, and of course all their loved ones.

So many people think war is good for the economy, because that was the case with WWII, coming off the Depression. The truth is it’s government spending that spurs the economy. War is an expense that produces debt in the long term, since the money spent doesn’t generate revenue. Spending on infrastructure increases revenue enabling people and products to become more mobile. So we travel, vacation, work, shop, and attend cultural events and those activities generate jobs and spur the economy.

Unfortunately Republicans oppose investment in our communities and in our country, and call it Socialism when we spend to improve our lives.
