A government shutdown is looming with September 30 as the deadline.
Democrats are attacking the Republicans over it and doing their “extreme MAGA Republican” thing, hoping that the targeting sticks. Yes, how dare any of the Republicans not want to continue the rampant spending we’ve seen from the Democrats and the Biden team? That same spending helped fuel the inflation that everyone is suffering from now. Imagine thinking that paying attention to how our money is spent and stopping the slide into further debt is a bad thing.
But that’s what Democrats keep trying to sell to the American people, they keep trying to tag the Republicans and not wasting money as “extreme.” Yet, as I reported, a new poll shows that the American people aren’t buying that line. Indeed, they’re so down on the Biden team at this point, that if the government shutdown happens, more would blame Joe Biden for the problem. That’s how deep a hole the Democrats have dug for themselves.
On Tuesday, the Senate advanced a continuing resolution to hold the government open through Nov. 17. They intend to vote later this week. The House passed some appropriations bills and expects to vote on a CR on Friday. But some were calling for doing more about spending including Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL).
Gaetz explained how bad it has gotten with $33 trillion in debt, facing $2 trillion in annual deficits. Then he delivered the line of all time, hitting the Democrats.

“We are devaluing American money so rapidly that in America today, you can’t even bribe Democrat Senators with cash alone! You need to bring gold bars to get the job done, just so that the bribes hold value!” Gaetz declared.
That was an obvious reference to the indictment of Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ). The indictment alleged he took money from people for protection and favors, including for acting on behalf of Egypt. A search warrant allegedly turned up gold bars and jackets stuffed with cash in his home, a picture of which they included in the indictment.
These photos from the Bob Menendez indictment are wild.

That’s a great humorous line from Gaetz about the place we are for not addressing the problems. That’s the contrast, right there.
This is a very astute observation. It’s a major milestone in the death of a fiat currency when its issuers need to get bribed in a harder money. https://t.co/0l6DRFrTtR
