Shutdown Politics

The bill would deem H.R. 1, the Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011, to be passed if the Senate doesn't pass spending legislation for the rest of the fiscal year by Wednesday, April 6th.

We cannot allow HUD VASH funds to be eliminated. Homeless vets deserve permanent housing. It's disgraceful that we have so many homeless veterans in this country.

Our children are in need of Head Start. Why is it when something needs to be cut its our children who suffer! As parents our children should come first always not last and desires first! Grow up America let us not be selfish let us stand strong for our children! With the shape of everything in this country this is the last thing that needs cut! We need Head Start, W.I.C, and many parents need the help with child care! Do Not pass this bill, Please!

I would only favor an extension of 60 days which should give all parties time to make cuts. At the end of 60days there should be no more extensions.

There are many successful people out there that never had head start. Why don't they just take babies out of their crib and start them in school too. It's getting there. There's to much pressure on school kids the way it is. At least wait till kindergarten. Let them be children.

It is time to shut down the government until we get these politicians to balance the budget. Enough playing the extension game. Do your jobs or get voted out. The taxpayer has to keep paying for this foolishness.

The continuing resolution process has become like boosting a teenager's credit line whenever they buy something first, then ask you to cover it. I voted NO.

I am 58 years old and as long as I can remember every year we add more money to education. There is a sea of homeless programs. What has resulted absolutely nothing. Most homeless choose this. The children have not gained anything for the all the monies that have been collected. Why throw money at something with a negative record

I agree with 'tc'. It is time to shut down the government until we get these politicians to balance the budget. Enough playing the extension game. Do your jobs or get voted out. The taxpayer has to keep paying for this foolishness. The problem is that this extension habit got started under the Clinton administration when the administration took money from Social Security, the Government employees pension plan and everywhere else they could find money so the Clinton administration could 'claim' to have a surplus (yes, but maybe that surplus was obtained the same way that 'moon rock' was obtained.
