On the looming shutdown

This pretty much sums up my opinion.

That's oversimplifying it a bit - they also had a clause in there that would defund the health care bill or severely undermine it. They knew Obama wasn't going to pass it for that reason alone, much less the Planned Parenthood (which was so ridiculously disengenuous it was painful - there's already legislation in place that blocks federal funding for abortion). At this point, both sides are fuck all as far as the budget goes since none of the issues they actually tackled would take a serious bite out of the massive deficit.
