Barak will win. Boehner doesn't have half the cajones Gingrich did and even Gingrich eventually caved. JMO.
Why is it that it's the House that shuts down the govt and not the President? Aren't they both responsible? I see what the left does there. Kinda like when the left had their army of PR/media people ready to attack the SC because they thought the ACA was going down. They were going to say the court was the hands of the Republicans...as if it has never been in the hands of the left. Afterwards, it's "ACA is Constitutional. Get over it." That's true for Citizen's United too, which didn't hurt them in this election afterall.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
