Wonky political stuff

At this point,  I think that I'd rather that the republicans shut the government down for the day, or perhaps the weekend, and then arrive at a compromise to open it up again.  At which point, everything should be back on the table, including all the cuts agreed to by democrats.  There's a tentative, fragile recovery going on right now, and cutting spending is almost the worst thing to do at this moment.  We'd be far, far better off getting employment numbers way up, so that tax revenues go up, than cutting stimulating spending right now.  Of course, I'm on the losing side in this argument.
After all, what do I know.
Yours, feeling that most republican elected officials know even less.
