    Government Shutdown: Ideology over Deficit Reduction →

    Salon discusses the bottom line on the GOP’s H.R. 1 and “deficit reduction,” which is Tea-code for riders based on conservative ideology:

    For many Democrats, these riders are non-starters. “I think when we begin to allow an ideological agenda that says, what we’re really trying to do in this budget is not make progress toward deficit reduction but intentionally target a few long-established programs that have demonstrated [benefits]…I wouldn’t stand for that,” Democratic Sen. Chris Coons told the FT. But among a large swath of the GOP – and not just its famously fractious freshmen – ideological hot-buttons like health-care or abortion are more important than the spending cuts themselves. Even the party’s pragmatists, who remember the wounds inflicted by the shutdowns of the Gingrich era, may be leery of cutting a deal that could lead to their own demise in 2012. To remind members of their promise to weed out weak-kneed compromisers, Tea Party activists – many of whom are nonplussed about the prospect of a shutdown — plan to rally outside the Capitol on Thursday.

    Here are the values (riders) that the Republican-Teaparty are insisting must be approved.  Notice that if they didn’t insist on continuing the tax cuts for the wealthy and tax breaks for corporations that have made record profits, these riders wouldn’t be necessary — which is the point: the Republican-Teaparty politicians aren’t really worried about spending or a budget.

    It’s the Conservative Ideology, Stupid!

 Mother Jones: The GOP’s Plan to Fund Anti-Abortion Activists

 Congressional  Republicans have made a big deal about slashing funds for Planned  Parenthood and other family planning programs, claiming that these cuts  are necessary to address the federal deficit. But one of those lawmakers  has been pushing his own measure to provide additional federal funds to  so-called crisis pregnancy centers—unregulated and uncertified clinics that try to deter women from seeking abortions.

Republican – Teaparty politicians want less tax and regulation on business, but more control over the wombs of American women. 
So ultimately, where does that end — covering our hair in public? Walking 5 steps behind our husbands?
