Shutdown averted, but deep differences linger

Shutdown averted

It's the third time this year a government budget predicament has been averted just in the nick of time and the public seem plain fed up with the hysterically partisanship that led to the nerve-racking close calls.

Rising public disgust turns up in poll after poll showing Congress' approval ratings contain sunk far lower than those of President Barack Obama, whose own numbers have been weighed down by the teetering economy and dour employment numbers yet the political grandstand is likely to carry on even grow.

Since at the heart of every major standoff this year is a deep philosophical disagreement between the parties on the dimension and role of government it encompasses sharp disagreements on spending cuts and taxes, and on whether deficit decrease or more spending to prod a flailing recovery is a higher priority and these are arguments sure to resound more loudly.
