Hang On To Your Hats, Government Shutdown May Be Coming
Whether it’ll be good for the Democrats or the Republicans, or a disaster for both parties has yet to be seen, but the line appears to have been drawn in the sand:
A short-term spending measure expires on April 8. A partial government shutdown looms without further action by Congress by then. Even so, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., told reporters during the day “time is up” and there will be no more stopgap measures without the larger agreement Republicans seek.
Democrats seem to be thinking that it’s still 1995, but there are an awful lot of differences, and so it may not turn out the way the 1995 shutdown did.
