It is the usual GOP extortion!
"We will hurt you and the things you care about if you don't give us everything we want." they have become more a gang of thugs than a political party.

They are willing to bring harm to the country, the fragile economy, and the citizens of the country through a government shut down in order to what?.. unfund the EPA, unfund Planned Parenthood, unfund Obama's health care legislation.

In December, they were willing to mess up our building and fragile relationship with Russia and ignore the loose nukes that were lying around in order to get their Bush tax cuts for the rich extended.

This is EXTORTION, plain and simple, and should be call what it is whenever possible.

1. that's right... it was extortion then and it's extortion now, with the
help of the media. and since the dems gave in then, they set it up for this to be done again. and i fear they will cave AGAIN.
