House GOP Searching for Moderate Dems

Here you have it - the GOP leadership in the House is apparently giving up on conservatives to support their budget, instead seeking Democrat help - to cut all of about $30 billion for the year - out of a $1.6 trillion deficit.

This means that the new deficit will only be $1.57 trillion - hooray!! This is how Republicans lose - they get voted in overwhelmingly to do what they campaigned on and then they become almost indistinguishable from Democrats.

Government shutdown is inevitable - just embrace it. The Dems will not cut spending and the GOP is scared stiff of letting the Democrats shut the government down. Why??
