Gaseous Anomaly: karnal: Lando Lincoln: karnal: You can see all the Democrats smiling - no worries that it is bad for our country as long as it is good for their party.

John Boehner can end this at any time. The ball's in his court. Obama can't end this, since he's not Speaker of the House and cannot bring a call to vote. The Democrats in the House or the Senate can't end this, since they can't bring a call to vote either. It's all Boehner from here.

I was under the assumption that Harry Reid could bring it up for a vote at anytime....no?

On the shutdown, the Senate has already passed a bill funding the government (at sequestration levels, so no increase from the budget in effect on Sep 30). If Boehner brings this to the floor, holds a vote, and it passes, it goes to Obama's desk, he signs it, and the government reopens. No further action from the Senate is required.

On the (much more dangerous) debt ceiling issue, I don't know what the Senate's done already, if anything.

I don't know what the Senate has to do about the debt ceiling. That's the House's duty. But Boehner is a nightmare of a speaker of the House. Anyone in that position, regardless of party, who wants the job and refuses to do anything needs to be removed.

Damn. And here I thought it was finally General Eric Robert Publican's time to shine.

/he's been polling higher than any other Conservative candidate for YEARS!

paygun: grumpfuff: Well, that was hard.

Oh okay, I get it.  When you say ad hominem, you mean things you don't like.
