Republicans in disarray!



Kudos to WaPo for shifting the usual narrative with this headline.

GOP in disarray as budget impasse threatens shutdown, deep cuts — and default

1. Their only cover here is that a Dem house squashes the Teabaggers poo flingers

Well Mitch we all know you are good at obstructing, now let's see if you can lead.

2. he has no desire to lead

life for him and his hussy is very good and no matter what he does he has a pile of money waiting at the end of the line.

His greatest leadership moment was when he made President Barrack Obama a one term president..

IMHO, he's a mobster.

5. Trump never wanted to lead or govern... he wants to rule.

Oh, wait... also applicable to Mitch.

They work so well together.

Just not for our country.

9. To those of us in KY, Mitch has been a leader all along....

He's regularly led the CEOs of big tobacco and healthcare corporations to the hog trough of government largess, thereby leading many working American citizens to an early grave.

A perfect Republican leader.

Ditch Mitch 2020.......

10. I was more focused on the headline

Here are a few graphs...

Senate Republicans and the Trump administration are struggling to reach an agreement on a path forward on critical budget and spending issues, threatening not only another government shutdown and deep spending cuts but a federal default that could hit the economy hard.

GOP leaders have spent months cajoling President Trump in favor of a bipartisan budget deal that would fund the government and raise the limit on federal borrowing this fall, but their efforts have yet to produce a deal. And the uncertain path forward was underscored a few days ago at the Capitol, when a budget meeting between key Senate Republicans, including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), and senior White House officials left out Democrats, whose votes will be imperative to avoid a shutdown and an economy-shaking breach of the federal debt limit.

“We’re negotiating with ourselves right now,” said Senate Appropriations Chairman Richard C. Shelby (R-Ala.). “The president, the administration, has some views, maybe, that are a little different sometimes than the Senate Republicans have. So we’re trying to see if we can be together as best we can.”

The GOP dysfunction — coupled with a new House Democratic majority with its own priorities — leaves the sides much farther apart than they were at this point in last year’s budget process, which ended in a record-long government funding lapse. At the time, Republicans controlled both chambers of Congress, but negotiations stalled over funding Trump’s immigration priorities.

7. Someone on kpfk noted that the farmers who are now in trouble financially because of tariffs and

receiving subsidies will also be losing their markets not being supplied at present. So get ready for more subsidies having to be paid in the future. This is surely the way 45 must run his businesses with no thought past the end of his nose-----into the ground!!

11. That's what caught my eye

Could they, possibly, be shifting from their go-to narrative?

13. With IQ45 leading their party.....

snatching defeat from the jaws of victory is inevitable. There just doesn't seem to be too many deep thinkers over there.

12. One thing to add

Fuck you Cocaine Mitch and your China family!

Treason is too kind of a word to describe his fuckery.

Sorry for the swear words but he deserves it!
