You do know that Speaker Tip O"Neil shut down the government a DOZEN time while Reagan was president over such things as funding for abortions. Did that bother you then or is it only when Republicans do it?
By the way, it takes two sides to shut down the government.
Well,,,,,, Speaker Bonehead has been doing that. He has been willing to negotiate but Obama refuses to. Reagan negotiated with Tip O'Neil but Obummer Boy seems to be above negotiating.
What is the point?
Even after you come to terms there is no guarantee they will honor their agreement.
This was done in July Rouge. Negotiations were over months ago. We had two happy parties leave the table and a situation that hasn't changed at all since.
