tl;dr: Republicans are threatening to let the government shut down rather than pass bills that fund Planned Parenthood. Those bills also funds the rest of federal government functions/funding.


The government shutdown in 2013 cost something like $20billion in taxpayer money. The article even says that it's less expensive to keep things running than to let it shut down. When it shuts down, no government employees get paid. Folks like Dready show up to work for no pay.

So what do you guys thing? Stupid, or really stupid?

republicans care all about hypothetical foetuses and birth control right up until they're squeezed out; at which point they're nothing to them.

My dad is a non-essential government employee, so when the government shut down in 2013 we had no income whatsoever. And while it wasn't horrific given the shutdown was less than a month, it gave a pretty unpleasant glimpse of what happens when a retirement-age government worker loses their source of income but still has to provide for a family, and made me pretty damn nervous about how long any future shutdowns might last. Plus given how frugal my dad has always been, I imagine he had a much healthier safety net to fall on than most government employees did.

So yeah, fuck whatever congressional asshats are making this happen. Doubly so since they declared themselves essential employees last shutdown, and probably will again if they haven't already, so they don't suffer personally at all for this stupidity.

house republicans aren't even giant babies, they're even less mature giant fetuses, hence their stance on planned parenthood.

Yes let's shut down the government over an organization that provides healthcare to millions of women. That will win us the women vote.

The women that vote for the republicans are either rich and therefore don't care, or Christian and therefore want this.

Then she falls into the rich category?

Edit. If you are an atheist and vote for a creationist, you deserve the crap the republicans put the USA through.

That I can believe as long as it's disagreement on one issue. But the republican's entire platform revolves around religion (specifically Christianity)!

Cause republicans are anti-atheist and anti-poor. So if you vote for them, you are screwing yourself in multiple ways. How is that smart or rational?

tbh modern Western hard conservatives who aren't rich and straight white men are either deluded, self-hating, hypocritically judgemental or uninformed

I can at least sympathise with classical liberal ideas to some degree but right-authoritarians are just mad

I mean you don't know why she's even Republican. That's very black and white thinking. And people are not known for being rational. That doesn't mean they're idiots.

I've met plenty of atheist republicans - both male and female. Believe it or not, some people are just cruel by nature and do not need a church to advise them on how to utilize their methods.

Can confirm. One of the most politically active republicans I know is gay. Makes for some shitty situations for him tho
#29
actually bad shit going on in both abroad and in this country and the crazy faction of the gop wants to shut everything down over what should be a complete non issue.

pretty much what I think every time this shit happens.

In principle, republicanism is a fine thing.

But their strategy of trying to garner the lowest bottomfeeders for body counts on election days over the last decade has really ruined them.

Both parties waste my money. I'm not giving them a cent at the end of the year.

...modes and scales are still useless.

Looks like the Weeping Cheeto found out that it ain't easy being cheesy.

But seriously, what the fuck is going on with the Republican party? Are they going to reign in the Tea Party or fracture or what?

I liked Boehner. He called Steve King an asshole. We also couldn't have passed TPP without him. He was one of the good ones.

I also don't think a Republican-led government shutdown over trying to deny women abortion rights would be the worst thing in the world from a political point of view
