A quote from one of my favorite blogs, BuzzMachine:
: So the filibuster meltdown option is avoided. And a good thing it is. I don’t think the peopel [sic] would have tolerated political war and a congressional shutdown.
Personally, I don’t think anyone would have noticed a congressional shutdown. I think it’s always a good thing when Congress shuts down, because my life, liberty and property are safe for that small amount of time.
Remember when the government shut down that last time? I vaguely remember it but it didn’t really affect me and I suspect it didn’t really affect anyone else either.
