Obama to Veto Military Pay Bill, Prefers to Demagogue Shutdown


RUSH: You gotta hear Barbara Mikulski on the floor of the US Senate yesterday.

MIKULSKI: We’re going to turn out the lights at the National Institutes of Health. We’re gonna say to a researcher, “I know you’re working on that cure for cancer, I know you’re working on that cure for Alzheimer’s, or autism, but, you know what? Washington, the Congress says you’re nonessential.”

  1. It was the Democrats who failed to pass a budget last year when they were in power. They didn’t want to handle that hot potato. They’d rather punt and let the Republicans make the hard (but necessary) choices, and take all the blame for it. After shirking their duty, the Dems will have issues to use in the next elections.

  2. I’m shocked, deeply shocked, that the Dems would resort to such hostage holding tactics.
