Are you suspicious of a 'shutdown' happening this week?
Eric Erickson of the Daily Events publication has this to say:
The media in Washington is buzzing about a government shutdown. Only the media is blaming the Republicans. In reality, like in both Wisconsin and Indiana, it is the Democrats who are fleeing responsibility. The situation is getting so out of hand, I expect National Geographic to do a documentary on the migratory patterns of fleeing Democrat legislators.
Because of 1995 and because of the Tea Party movement's desire to cut spending, the media would have us all believe it is the Republicans who want a shutdown. That is just not the case. The Washington GOP is fearful of a repeat of 1995. The Democrats, on the other hand, want a repeat of 1995.
Democrats view 1995 as the moment Bill Clinton found his voice and started fighting back. They want that for Barack Obama. Never mind that Obama is no Clinton.

This is bound to be one of the most interesting weeks in USA history.
