The Dems are seriously mistaken if they think they can repeat the lies of 1994 and come out on top.

As this poll shows...the people aren't going to fall for it again.

Let them pass that bill ensuring we are still getting paid, and they can shut that thing down as long as they want.

The first thing they'll do in a shut down is furlough the DA and AF civilians...which menas we might actually get some work done. :D

The civilians in my unit are actually pretty vital to our work. Take the civilians away and the largest air operations center in the world shuts down. They easily make up more then half our work force.

My shop could get by, because we only have 5 civilians, but some of the other execution cells are entirely made up of them with no one else trained to do their job. Take them away, and I have no reason to go to work.

Shutting down the government and congress out of session are the only time the American People are safe.

Shut it down and then eliminate the extraneous.
