Agreed. I'm upset that they were willing to cut so much as it is. And the lack of responsibility, hell pure selfishness, exhibited by the Republicans is disgusting. They've gotten the Democrats to offer unprecedented (and largely unnecessary) cuts to discretionary spending and yet they're willing to shutdown the government over a couple riders. Things that should be resolved through legislation, not the budget process. They don't care about the effect on the economy, on jobs, on trade, on currency, etc etc etc. It's just a big ideological circle jerk.It doesn't help that the tea baggers are constantly changing what they want and are attaching a bunch of non-budget riders onto their budget. Even though I'll be affected by a shutdown I hope Obama vetoes it.
