Why is the burden for a government shutdown on the Republicans here? Wasn’t it Clinton who refused to sign a budget? Wouldn’t it be Obama doing the same here? Instead of having to justify spending, the mainstream media lets the Dems get away with forcing the Republicans to have to justify cuts. This seems to defy basic economics. Are we going to get an article that says that Obama has ruled out a shutdown? Don’t hold you breath.
The top Congressional Republicans on Sunday pulled up short of supporting fiscal measures that would lead to a national credit default or government shutdown.
