Would we prefer a temporary federal government shut down, or would we prefer that House Republicans compromise (read cut and run on their campaign promises) with Democrats to finalize the budget?

Speaking yesterday of the looming showdown, Speaker of the House John Boehner said: “This is very simple: Americans want the government to stay open, and they want it to spend less money.”

Comparing his words to last fall’s Tea Party/Conservative inspired rhetoric, something about this didn’t ring true.

Today, as noted here on the Tatler earlier, Rasmussen published a new poll, finding that 58% of voters “would rather have a partial shutdown of the federal government than keep its spending at current levels.”

Besides, if Boehner purposefully misreads our intent regarding the government staying open, his next mind-reading divination will be that we weren’t serious about government spending less of our money.

BATFE and FCC on furlough?

You decide.

He appears frequently on NRA News as their “unofficial” analyst and was published in the Texas Review of Law and Politics with David Kopel and Carlisle Moody.
