Democrats are already blaming Republicans for a government shutdown that, while increasingly likely, hasn't even happened yet. They say Republicans won't "compromise" and thus want a shutdown. I dunno. From what I see, it's the House that keeps passing bills, and the Senate, controlled by hyper-partisan septugenarian Harry Reid, who keeps saying "no." No counteroffer, no meeting the House part of the way, just "no." My way or the highway. The news today even said that President Obama wanted to meet with House Republicans, but Senator "No" told the President, well, "no."
Seems to me it's the Democratic party that won't compromise and that wants a government shutdown.
