The president went before the cameras and microphones again this afternoon and reiterated that he will make no concessions surrounding the debt ceiling. Meanwhile, Harry Reid told the House Republicans to get over their fantasy about delaying ObamaCare and to “get a life.” He went on to say that the Senate has no intention of taking any further action to prevent a government shutdown and that Boehner’s only choice is to pass the Senate’s legislation. Nonetheless, the House Republicans announced their intention to ask for a one year postponement of ObamaCare.
I guess it is pretty clear that the Democrats have exactly zero fear of a government shutdown. I am reminded of the story of Brer Rabbit and the Tar Baby. Also, “please proceed, Speaker Boehner.”
