CookingWithGas, to over-ride the President’s proposed veto, you would need at least enough Republican House members who would vote with the Democrats to over-ride the veto. That would have to be roughly one-third of the conference (I’m not interested enough to run the actual numbers). If you really think that one-third of Republican Congresscritters are willing to over-ride a veto from a Republican President, you need a sanity check. They might as well sign their political death warrants.
Besides, it’s not like they are upset about a government shutdown. One Republican Congressman, from PA, who barely survived this last mid-term election, has already made it clear that he doesn’t believe it’s a big deal, since no one really lives paycheck to paycheck, yanno? They eventually will get paid, so what’s the big deal? :rolleyes:
