Or only their backbones?  Just heard Larry O'Donnell say that negotiators--presumably including Democrats in the Senate, and the White House--are now discussing budget cuts of 35 to 39 billion dollars to avoid a government shut down.

It's hard to agree with the Tea Party demagogues, but Shut It Down.  Make the case--it shouldn't be that hard, because it's true--that Rebuplican intransigence, duplicity and selfishness are responsible.  Put it to them.  

If we Democrats don't have the guts to stand up for those who are forced to depend on government for the essentials of of daily life, we don't deserve to govern.

What a disgrace.

Yes, Shut It Down!

Then fill the airwaves and newspapers with true accusations that the GOPhers are owned by the extremely wealthy, and that they are cynically heartless for trying to defund any government effort to provide a safety for those who've done their best, but have fallen hard.
