IT HAS BECOME INCREASINGLY apparent  that the long national nightmare over the government shutdown is nearing an end.
With the Republican Party in disarray and its Tea Party wing increasingly isolated, the question has become not “if” but “when” it would cave on its outrageous demands.

According to most, on Oct. 17 the U.S. Treasury will hit its legal debt ceiling.
If Congress remains in it’s petulant temper tantrum, that could spell financial Armageddon.

GOP digs in over budget – for no rational reason

LUNATIC DEBT CEILING FIGHT WILL HARM ECONOMY, BUT RADICALS DON’T CARE
The looming budget battles in Congress are totally unnecessary and threaten to wreak havoc on an already fragile economy.
Republicans in the House of Representatives, pressured by far right-wing activist groups, don’t care.
It’s all about posturing and catering to the radial right wing of the party, which is holding the entire country hostage. Damn the torpedoes!
