Reid to Shut Down Gummint?

Egads.  Harry Reid doesn't like Gummint any more?

Democrat dedication to a Department of Energy loan program may end up shutting down the federal government by the end of this month. The federal government’s fiscal year expires on September 30th, and Congress has not yet passed legislation authorizing any money to be spent after that date.

The House plans to pass a temporary funding bill, today, that would keep the government open through November 18th. But Senate Democrats say they’ll reject the cuts to clean energy loans the House included in the bill to pay for increased Federal Emergency Management Agency disaster aid funding.

Uh huh.  Gotta make those loans.  Have friends who need loans.  Where will campaign-contributions come from if those friends don't have taxpayer-provided cash?
