Nancy Pelosi Threatens to Join the Government Shut Down Party

Rather than deal with many of the fiscal issues brought about by unsustainable congressional gifts to Big Government Union Bosses and their private sector Big Labor counterparts, Nancy Pelosi threatens to join the movement for a federal government shutdown.  A shutdown forces all non-essential federal government employees to go home without pay.  (Of course in the past when these “non-essential” employees returned, congress basically paid them for their time-off without a loss in regularly pay or vacation pay.)

It is time for congress to deal with the problem of forced unionism and its costs to society as well as to the future of the American Dream.

From the Politico:

A high-ranking aide to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told Democratic chiefs of staff that a government shutdown is more likely than not, according to attendees. Speaking at a regular meeting of the top aides to House Democrats, Pelosi’s floor director, Jerry Hartz, offered up his assessment that the odds favor inaction before the government runs out of money, sources said. A shutdown would only happen if the House and Senate can’t reach a deal on the continuing resolution that expires on March 4.
