If the government shuts down — I don’t believe it will — who will you blame?
The Republican plan funds the government to the requests of the President and his political compatriots, except for the ACA (Obamacare). The President and Senate Democrats pledge to vote down and veto any bill that doesn’t include funding for Obamacare.
The Democrats are claiming the Republicans are responsible for the looming shutdown because they will not fund Obamacare. The Republicans are claiming the Democrats are responsible because they are being given a bill which funds the government except for the one part even the President and his fellow Democrats have delayed because of it’s logistical problems.
I have heard Democrats say that the Republicans are not willing to bend, but isn’t that also true of the Democrats if they also aren’t willing to bend?
Who will you blame and why? How does your reasoning not also apply to your side of the aisle?
