Another American Government Shutdown Up Ahead!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooPolitikBarack Obama

Oh brother!

How many more of these "possible" shutdowns are we going to have to endure??

This time it's over funding for FEMA. Republicans want to cut the funding, and Democrats insist emergency care for Americans is a must-have!

With both parties strong-willed in their beliefs, a compromise is far away.

And sorry Obama haters, you can't blame this all on him. Congress isn't being the best right now, either!

Watch the video above to get a better feel for the situation and draw your own conclusions.

Tell us what U think! Should we cut FEMA's funding to help our debt, or is it something we can't afford to lose?

    Yes…both parties are very stuck on their ideas. HOWEVER! It's a sad day that it's over DISASTER-RELIEF funding. If it was over….something that wasn't to HELP those who were affected by a NATURAL DISASTER, then maybe it would be different.

    Why isn't Perez blogging about the @occupywallstreet protest in New York? he can blog about protest to advocate gay marriage but not about a protest that is denouncing how the 1% is controlling this country???? makes me wonder if Perez is a sellout?????

    Its not a matter of whether one party wants disaster preparedness or not. They both do. The issue is how FEMA is to be funded in the next year - by making cuts in other less important programs/agencies to pay for it or by incurring more Government debt and using money we dont have. As usual, both sides will probably wait till the last minute to resolve it and Reid will do his usual theatrics. The deadline is Fri midnight - and if its not resolved by then, nobody is going to notice a weekend shutdown that is resolved by Monday. This is an annual event.

    Re: blondly7 – this is not a political forum…why are you responding to this?

    I heard Morgan Freeman say on Piers Morgan that republicans want Obama out of office because they are racists. It couldn't have to do with the fact that he has proven to be a terrible president and is completely out of touch and corrupt. Time to start scaring the uneducated public again!

    this is NOT over disaster relief it is over the Democrats and Obama trying to shove some pork into a bill that adds up to 3.7 BILLION dollars that will raise our taxes even more that he and they have

    OMG, Perez…you are just blatantly LYING!!! The Repubs don't want to cut funding! First, this is in addition to the annual money FEMA has already gotten…so it's EXTRA money for the year. Second, the Repubs proposed a $3.65 billion plan to fund them. The argument comes from WHERE the money will come from. Repubs want to take money from alternative energy research to fund FEMA, and the Dems want to borrow it from another country, which would add to our debt.

    Are we so immune to hearing the word "billion" repeated like it's nothing that we can't grasp the concept that we are in debt and can't afford to be reckless anymore with money?!? We are so f'ed! :( Time to research and become informed America.

    WTF ????????????
    Who the hell is in charge at FEMA
    Just been announced that they are not out of money, seems they found some
    Where was the $$ who is keeping track of FEMA funds ?And why oh why are we the taxpayer expected to cover the cost of the billionairs who build beachfront houses, that we all know are going to get destroyed , if you want to live there, you get your own insurance

    Got to get those facts right. Republicans DID offer and PASSED a budget to keep the Government running. The Presidents request in the size of money for the FEMA damage was TWICE what was asked. However it was Reid and the Democratic Senate that voted no, and will be responsible if there is a shut down. After the Senate vote Reid left the DC area for a fund raiser, and has not offered up a new bill. If your going to comment get the facts straight.

    liberals have proven to be manipulative liars that don't have the best intrest of the country first, vote against them every chance you get.

    Perez your ignorance and uneducated posts on political issues continuously amazes me. Can you do everyone taking time out of their day to comment and stop reporting on these issues. You clearly cannot deal with the level of thinking and research required to write these types of articles. BTW "Obama haters"…really. God please tell me you're kidding. I like and enjoy the way you do the celebrity news for the most part but the other thing you're writing about makes you look stupid. Stick to what you know and god stop being so pathetic.

    everyone a favor*

    Isn't FEMA terrible anyways? The way they handled Katrina was almost equivalent to the natural disaster.
