The shutdown game
Just another high stakes gamble in The Village. The Caucus posts the he said/she said on the pending government shutdown. Shorter version:
Boehner: If the government shuts down it's the Democrats fault for not meeting the extreme terms of the Tea Party GOPers.Me to Schumer (and Obama): WTF? You're holding the high cards. Why are you underplaying your hand? #thoughtIelectedbetterpokerplayers
Schumer: Compromise deal is on the table. Okay with us if you have to pretend to play tough to fool the Tea Party rubes.
