Shut the government down.
Reauthorize agencies and departments, one at a time, at 2006 or 2008 spending levels for the rest of the year. Reset the baseline for the FY12 budget.
Do that, Mr. Boehner, and I will personally come to your district in Ohio and knock on doors asking for votes for you. And I won’t be alone.
HOLD EVERYTHING: There’s No Budget Deal, And The Government May Still Shut Down
On Friday, The White House and the GOP came to a budget agreement to fund the government for the rest of Fiscal Year 2011, averting a government shutdown.
But they didn’t actually vote on the deal. They voted on a 1-week continuing resolution so they could wrangle up the details for an official vote this week. And that might not work out.
The buzz out of DC is that the number of GOPers who will vote “no” is growing.
Even if this isn’t the case, it’s pretty ominous for the bigger debates — the debt ceiling, the 2012 budget — that are due to begin in just weeks. As we noted this weekend, the whole reason the GOP caved on certain issues, was because they knew the much bigger fights were right around the corner.
