Let's Get It Straight!

It's amazing how convoluted and twisted the repubs can write their talking points, either not understanding or more likely intentionally distorting statements by Democrats. When Harry Reid commented about repubs not having the right to "pick and choose" which departments get funded it was in reference to the panic repubs went into, after they shut down the government, when some of their base discovered what they had done (for instance closing the federal park system) and the TP's wanted none of that. So the repubs wanted to start opening select departments that their base was ticked off about to placate them. Of course congress can select what bills to debate and pass, but not just the ones to make only the teapartiers happy! And our local nameless editors in the local rag jumped right on it, using the same distorted talking points!
