Are Republicans seeking to force a shutdown of the federal government?
Should we do 'Whatever It Takes' to balance our budget and reduce spending?
Get This: House Speaker John Boehner, an Ohio Republican, said on Feb. 17 that he won’t accept a short-term extension of the government’s current spending authority without cuts.
How far is too far?
Should Congress approve short-term extensions with spending cuts in the interim?
The Republican-controlled House voted 235-189 to cut at least $61 billion from fat-cat spending! This could set the stage for a dog-fight with Dems! If so that dog-fight could bring government to a standstill after March 4! That is when the current continuing resolution expires.
So, do what it takes? Or play it safe?
