    It’s easy take out all the nonessential garbage in the bill. Limit it to the minimum required to keep the government open.

    Borrowing money from China because we’re broke and giving it to Ukraine is no doubt the dumbest thing any administration could do.

    You're like a bunch of petulant third-grade children, stomping their feet saying if we don't get our way we're going to shut the government down. We would have liked to have seen less spending as a country when Trump was in office also but we didn't get that and the Democrats worked with the Republicans to make sure there wasn't a government shutdown not something I think a lot of people forget.

    Ken Buck's voting record aligns completely with maga and trump so I'd take anything he says with a huge grain of salt. He just presents well on camera and nobody knows much about him. Check his record. Better yet, ask him about the 2025 project.

    If people in those districts reelect these people.. just know that you guys are to blame and not the Democrats… Like that Republican congressman said… they don't know how to govern or simply just don't want to govern. This is all self-inflicted so for Ken Buck to say that it's anything but that is asinine. The freedom caucus is what's the existential threat to the country,sir!! They talk about fiscal responsibility but him and his party during Trump's presidency added 8 trillion dollars to the national deficit!! They always get up there and talk about fiscal this and responsibilities that but they had no problem giving tax cuts to the rich, did they? And now they want the American people to pay for..again!!

    He's literally saying he doesn't want a government shutdown if they get everything they want or it's an amount that they agree with… An amount and a procedure that's never had a problem ever before in history. These people do not know how to govern! It's totally self inflicted and more people need to be more angry about a government shutdown that was solely created by the GOP!! This will affect all of us because the Republicans aren't getting everything that they want!!

    Yada Yada from Republicans on govt spending cuts to social programs but it's always Nada Nada when it comes to fair taxes on their billionaire and multimillionaire donors to help reduce the deficit.

    For the first time ever under the Biden administration our national debt is at $33 trillion. $33 trillion. Let that sink in a minute all of this is going on under the Biden administration. We were all upset when Trump increase the national debt, many were outraged. I don’t see much criticism coming from our progressive media for this massive amount of debt.

    "we're making progress"

    Translated: "Once again, as a minority, we the GOP are holding the government hostage and the spineless, feckless, useless democrats are caving to some of our demands, but, not enough for us to let the hostage go."

    WTG democrats! ONCE AGAIN you are giving the GOP whatever they want JUST because they THREATEN to do something!!! How courageous you are to stand up and fight!!! Oh wait… nvm… you never do.

    The national debt went up over 8 trillion dollars in 4 years under Trump. Republicans can save the fake outrage over our debt.

    An unmitigated disaster, a clown show, dysfunctional, lunatics, a Festivus of airing grievances. Republicans own descriptions of Republican failures of the House.

    OMG! The nonsensical drivel just goes on and on. Rump's "handlers" want to see Democracy destroyed, because Oligarchies do better under a Dictator (that they prop up), than under a less predictable electorate. Rump is a straight up TRAITOR. His Enablers are Straight Up Traitors. His followers are Monumentally, and probably Irretrievably, Stupid. I'm sure it is a lot of fun for the pundits to kick around the legal minutia, but the Majority of us who are still in possession of a Brain, 2 Eyes, and 2 Ears can see what the "rightwing" is doing. The only thing I am interested in hearing about are Legal Maneuvers to keep ALL Insurrectionists OFF the 2024 Ballot, under 14(3). Period.
