It took just a few minutes Monday for the Senate to reject a House-passed bill linking continued government funding to a delay in President Obama’s health care reform plan, leaving no clear path to avoid a partial shutdown of federal functions beginning at midnight.
“We are now in a moment of regrettable and avoidable uncertainty,” Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said in a defense-wide message released before the Senate voted.
Hagel said he believes a shutdown could be avoided but “necessary and prudent preparations” are being made for the worst.
“While military personnel around the world would continue to serve in a normal duty status, a large number of civilian employees and contractors would likely be temporarily furloughed,” he said, recommending that everyone talk with their supervisors to determine how they might be affected.
Good. Now send back the original CR with the defund. Negotiations are over.
Yes. I agree.
Shut down the oval office. What a nerve, it is their way or no way? What kind of compromise is that?
to compromise is to play into dem hand , all the dem voted for it , let them suffer for it
Yep, stand SOLID, NO COMPROMISE, WE GOT EM ON THE RUN!
Its not compromise, Oblamma wants to rule with an Iron Fist, like Argentina or Venezuala. We have a REPRESENTATIVE REPUBLIC, a Constitutional Representative Republic, and not the Oligharchic George Sorros Puppet/tinpot/dictator that is currently occupying dc. Best thing Oblamma can do is hand in his resignation, also Biden, Pelosi, and the rest of the czars and minions, LEAVE, LEAVE, GET OUT!
SHUT IT DOWN no defund? Shur It Down!
shut it down ,let the dem own it all go to huchabe .com on fox his idea sound good to me
Maybe Obama would ask Russia to send troops here to subdue the Conservative Christians and Republicans. In Obama's mind those who oppose his dreams and agenda for the USA are enemies of his America where socialism will prevail.
Obama already has 15K Russian troops ensconced in Md. They are supposedly here to provide security and crowd control. And to assist FEMA in disaster control in the states around DC and DC itself. Obama does not trust American guards to willingly shoot Americans.
