On Friday the US Congress is set to compromise on a new budget. Failure to pass a new budget would result in a government shutdown. Kristen Soltis, the director of policy research at The Winston Group argues that even if the budget is passed the greater concern is about the next fiscal year because some serious spending concessions should be agreed to in order to increase the debt ceiling. Nonetheless, if a compromise regarding the budget cannot be agreed on by this Friday, the federal government is in danger of not being funded at all and shutting down for the first time since 1995.

It also provides that, in the event of a government shutdown in excess of 24 hours or the limitation on the debt of the United States being reached, no salary payments will be disbursed to Members of Congress or the President for days on which that condition persists. "If what we've done is the best we can do—we shouldn't get paid." -Congressman Womack

Cenk Uygur on how Republicans in Congress refuse to negotiate. Meanwhile Democrats and the Obama Administration won't show strength and call their bluff on a possible government shutdown.
" This temporary CR will allow us to avoid a government shutdown that could otherwise occur on March 4th, when the current funding resolution expires. "This CR contains funding to allow all government agencies and programs to continue operating at the current rate of spending for the next two weeks, until March 18, 2011 -- while reducing spending by $4 billion through several spending cuts and program terminations. These cuts reflect this Republican Majority's continued commitment to significantly reduce spending, rein in the nation's exploding deficits and debt, and to help our economy continue on the road to recovery. "Mr. Speaker, a government shutdown would halt critical and necessary services and programs that Americans across the country rely on -- and is not reflective of what our constituents expect or demand."

Transcript by www.newsy.com BY ALLIE SPILLYARDS ANCHOR: JENNY MECKLES You're watching multisource political video news analysis from Newsy. Everyone on Capitol Hill has been gearing up for what's seemed inevitable... a government shutdown. Now - Republicans are offering a plan to keep things rolling... at least, temporarily. CNN's radio correspondent Lisa Desjardins explains. "Both sides want to cut spending but they're both trying to avoid a shutdown because they're not exactly sure who would be blamed. Democrats seem to think Republicans would take the blame, but there's pressure on both sides to for now avoid a shutdown. So that leads to some hope." According to The Atlantic, the 2-week stopgap proposal, a bill that temporarily eases budget debates by merging cuts with those approved by President Obama, is a strategic move by Republicans. "Three senior House GOP aides said the strategy is designed to avert a government shutdown and limit the ability of Senate Democrats and the White House to portray Republicans as unreasonable or inflexible." And although they can't agree on where to cut, neither side wants to be branded as too stubborn to govern. A writer for Slate says both parties have something to lose. "The White House wants Senate Democrats to make a deal. It cannot have a government shutdown while the economic recovery is still so fragile. Republicans, meanwhile, don't want a shutdown because they can't risk having their first big public act be that they shut ...

Transcript by www.newsy.com BY CHRISTINA HARTMAN You're watching multisource politics video news analysis from Newsy. A game of chicken on Capitol Hill -- where lawmakers are hashing out a budget compromise before temporary funding to operate the government runs out. And if you've been listening to cable news -- it sounds like the end is nigh -- in T-minus 14 days. "...a shutdown of the federal government over budget problems." (KTVU) "Top Republicans say a government shutdown could still happen if more cuts aren't made." (WRC) House Republicans want to cut $60 billion from this year's more than $1 trillion budget. REP. JOHN BOEHNER (R-OH) "When we say we are going to cut spending, read my lips, we're going to cut spending." (CBS) But in all this talk of cutting spending -- we're really only talking about 12 percent of the budget up for debate -- that's the percentage that makes up nonsecurity discretionary spending. CBS News' Chip Reid lays out GOP-proposed cuts. "$317 million from family planning programs for the poor. $350 million from customs and border protection and $850 million from the Centers for Disease Control..." Elected officials spent most of Thursday and Friday morning trading jabs over who'd be responsible for the looming shutdown showdown.

As Americans focus on the Middle East republicans threatened shut down of the US government. on March 4th, 2011. This will have dire consequences on america.
Time and time again Republicans bring up the threat of a government shutdown. What they don't realize is that, as Senator Schumer said this week, they're 'playing with fire."
There are two possibilities that a US Government shutdown could occur. 1) If the Senate or the President refuses to accept the trimmed back 2011 spending plan. 2) Congress must approve more government debt or the government will shut down.
What the leaders should do. If they have any sense. America will collapse quicker if they do not act soon. Anyhow it will only ease the fall a little bit if they shut it down.
