Republicans Want a Shutdown

Let's be clear:
A new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll confirms that Republicans would rather shut down the Federal government than compromise on the Federal budget:

Compromise on the budget - Republicans 38%
Compromise on the budget - Democrats 68%

That's why Boehner and the Republicans can't compromise, his base won't allow him to compromise. Democrats have accepted Boehner's original cut of $33 Billion, now he says it needs to be $40 Billion. That's called "bad faith".

The problem for Republicans? Independents overwhelmingly agree with the Democrats - compromise on the budget. This will not go well for the Republicans.

The "teaparty" affair was fun while it lasted my Republican friends, but nobody likes a crazy hothead ...

What's up with this Republican nut, Paul Ryan, and his proposed budget?

"I think the biggest problem is revenues. It is simply unrealistic to say that raising revenue isn't part of the solution. It's a measure of how far off the deep end Republicans have gone with this religious catechism about taxes."

David Stockman, Ronald Reagan's director of Office of Management and Budget (OMB).
