110. Yeah, that obstructionist shit worked real well for a guy named Newt.
You pull that stunt, and the first kid who dies because he didn't have body armor, because of defunding, would be laid at Pelosi's feet with catastrophic and ever-resonating effects. It's an idiotic idea. A recipe to hand the House BACK to the GOP "adults" (and I use that word with all the sarcasm I can muster).

You'd still need continuing resolutions for other areas of government. It wouldn't surprise me if the Monkey signed an Emergency Executive Order to move that money in a big FUCK YOU to the Congress. Congress is funding highways, and POOOF! the dough ends up in Iraq. Ooooh, you don't think he'd do that, or could do it? Who's gonna stop him? The Supremes??? Who can move like molasses, or not at all, when they want to?

The American people aren't looking for parliamentary games, they're looking for vigorous debate and a vote. But if we go to the floor too soon, and not make a good effort to cut the best possible deal we can get while pulling along as many votes as we can con out of the unwilling, we're fucked.
