The House and Senate are very close on a budget for the rest of 2011, but even if they get there, there is not enough time to put it in to legislative language to get it through the House and over to Reid for a vote in the Senate before midnight Friday.
So Boehner and the House republican passed a 1 week stopgap by a margin of 247-181 to ensure any 2011 budget deal would be finalized and ready for a vote by the end of next week.
BUT, and I mean but, Harry Reid guaranties the stopgap won't make it through the Senate and Obama has threaten to veto it. This stopgap, would also fund the military for the remaining 6 months of the fiscal year...And the Commander-n-Chief is threatening to VETO it???
Even Jon Kyl can't figure the Veto threat out.
The political BULLSHIT Reid and Obama are pulling off tells me, at least, they are shooting FOR a shutdown of the Government and will try to lay the blame at the feet of the Republicans.
However, any halfwit will know and understand this tactic from the left and it would ONLY be to gain political talking points for next years election... At the expense of the American people!
Watch and See.
