http://news.yahoo.com/spending-congress-cant-agree-easy-stuff-073155630.htmlCongress is once again allowing shutdown politics to bring the federal government to the brink of closing.
For the second time in nine months, lawmakers are bickering and posturing over spending plans. The difference this time is that everyone agrees on the massive barrel of money to keep the government running for another seven weeks.
"It is embarrassing," Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., admitted Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union." Warner asked: "Can we, once again, inflict on the country and the American people the spectacle of a near government shutdown?"
If they wind up having the country downgraded once again, they will not be able to ignore the protests, they will be everywhere.
