Government Cat and Mouse Games.
Government shutdown ? No way , we have seen this movie before, let me explain. By midnight tonight the Congress is supposed to pass a “CR” continuing resolution, an appropriations bill that will keep the government running. They will run the clock right up until midnight and the leaders in Congress will come to an agreement , which will virtually be to make no changes at all,which will then allow the President to say OK we have an agreement, keep government running and the actual votes in Congress may very well [ bet on it] will go past midnight into the next day, which will not cause government to shutdown [ think it would be easy to shut down this monster that quickly?]. Of course all sides will declare victory, Republicans will say “we will fight over the debt limit” which has to be raised by Oct. 17th, the Democrats will declare they saved Obamacare and nothing will change. It’s all political drama, unfortunately it hurts the taxpayer, the stock market and confidence in government. I am often asked on the show about whether Obamacare will be repealed or defunded……the simple answer is no , the votes aren’t there and the President will never sign a bill to destroy it….that fight is over. But we can fight on the debt ceiling and extending more debt in our nation but I am afraid we will see the same game of chicken and the same exact result. Hey, the majority of American people voted for all these Democrats and this President , we can’t change the outcome in the middle of the game.
