Nation No Shutdown, But a Lot of Sellouts by John Nichols

"If you had asked Franklin Roosevelt or Harry Truman or John Kennedy or Lyndon Johnson or Jimmy Carter or even Bill Clinton what Democrats would defend in a fight over the future of government, there's no real question that funding for housing, public transportation, community development programs and safe air travel would be high on the list.

Yet, in order to achieve the Friday night deal that averted a government shutdiown -- for a week and, potentially, longer if an anticipated agreement is cobbled together and agreed to -- all of those programs took serious hits."

OBAMA IS SCARED SHITLESS OF THE TEAPUBLICANS!
DEMOCRATS?  OH YOU MEAN THE JELLYFISH WHO DON'T REMEMBER THE WORD FILIBUSTER OR GUTS?

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
