The political elites inside the Washington beltway are frothing at the mouth over the possibility that Republicans might, just might mind you, try to defund the continuing train-wreck that is commonly called Obamacare.
The major fear is that should they defund this flawed piece of legislation in the midst of authorizing the spending of our spendthrift government for the next fiscal year, the President in his infinite wisdom would veto such a move, and the result would be that the government would be forced to shut down when it ran out of money, or rather spending authorizations.
I will admit that I might not be the brightest bulb on the string, so perhaps some of our readers could answer just one multiple-choice question for me.
If President Obama vetoed the appropriations bill because it defunded Obamacare, and the government shut down because of that veto, and if Obama, Reid and Pelosi blamed Republican intransigence would anyone:
a) Who wasn’t employed by MSNBC believe that it was just Republican obstruction and punish Republicans when the 2014 midterm elections came around?
b) Who lived outside the Washington beltway even notice that it was shut down?
