This Huffington Post article is getting heavy traffic for the money quote from one of the Republican hostage takers.
House Republicans are continuing to play hardball in negotiations over the spending bill that precipitated the government shutdown on Oct. 1, apparently out of fear that compromise would weaken their power.
“We’re not going to be disrespected,” Rep. Marlin Stutzman (R-Ind.) told The Washington Examiner. “We have to get something out of this. And I don’t know what that even is.”
UPDATE: Democratic Senators “apologized” to Stutzman for disrespecting him and offered him a group hug to make him feel better.
The Daily News, meanwhile, continued its mockery of the Republican wrecking crew.
