The rule change the GOP made that allowed them to keep the government shut down.

Just. Fucking. Wow.

The votes are there to pass a clean CR.  The Republicans who oppose the clean CR (Tea Party) know it, and so they altered the rules to prevent anybody but House majority leader Eric Cantor or his designee from bringing up the vote.

Yeah, it’s Obama’s shut down.  And up is down and black is white.
