I'm all for it, shut down federal government until these idiots can agree that they need a balanced budget and to stop overspending. A few days in shutdown can save trillions of dollars.

You talk about difficult decisions? It's the repub leadership in the house that has the courage to tackle medicare and other entitlements. The deNOcrats haven't the courage to touch them.

I would have no problem cancelling ALL state and federal contracts with GE as long as they pay NO income tax.
