Let them eat cake!
"Congress is at an impasse over a federal spending bill amid a partisan dispute on funding for disaster assistance, escalating a fight that threatens a shutdown of government operations by monthâ€™s end. The Senate yesterday rejected, 59-36, a House-passed stopgap measure to fund the government until Nov. 18 and provide $3.65 billion in aid to victims of Hurricane Irene, tornadoes, flooding and other natural disasters". (another day, another collapse threatened...fear, fear)
