Shut 'er Down - pics

Protesters demonstrate in front of the Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, on April 6, 2011 urging for government spending cut. Republican US House Speaker John Boehner told US President Barack Obama he was 'hopeful' that talks on sweeping spending cuts would reach a deal to avert a partial government shutdown at week's end. Boehner reiterated that the House's goal is to prevent a government shutdown and make real cuts in spending, which the Speaker has argued is necessary to support private-sector job creation and boost confidence in the nation's economy.' US lawmakers and the White House are racing to make a midnight Friday deadline to have an agreement on legislation funding government operations through October 1, failing which key federal agencies will shut down.

Actually, SS checks and such still go out. All 'necessary' branches of government continue to function. A shutdown just closes national parks, etc.

17. Oh, sure, but what about tax refunds?

Not so much. Exactly the wrong time for the GOP to do this: if folks are expecting hundreds or thousands on a refund and it's delayed due to their grandstanding, they will remember in November.

6. They'll change their tune when their government checks stop coming.
And the public hates them just like they hate Walker.

7. One thing for sure if the Democrats aren't able to pin the
shutdown on the Teabaggers they have to be idiots. There are those pictures along with numerous quotes from Bachmann, Rand Paul and others calling for a shutdown.

10. They say "CUT SPENDING, CUT SPENDING" but they don't know what's actually gonna get cut
A huge portion of the tea party consists of baby boomers in their 40s, 50s, and 60s, don't they realize that the Republicans are relying on massive cuts to Medicare to balance the budget?

15. Those are really tight shots. 200 may be over-estimating.

The crowd is small, but the flags are big. I do like the one sign that says "Empire is not constitutional (+too expensive)"

20. Bachmann is stupid but those citizens are even dumber than her.
They can't even use their own heads about what that would do to them and theirs. Idiots!
