The brief government shutdown was so much fun last year that it looks like we're going to try it again. This time, instead of having to listen to Ted Cruz read Dr. Seuss into the Congressional record, however, we'll have to listen to the White House explain why the Postal Service can't deliver your Christmas catalogs and coupon books efficiently. Having apparently taken a page out of Sen. Cruz's playbook, the Obama Administration, through Josh Earnest, has noted that if the Republicans try to pass a budget bill that deliberately excludes funding for the President's executive amnesty, we'll the President is just going to shut this whole thing down, take his ball and pout in a corner.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Monday that President Barack Obama will block a government budget bill if the GOP denies him the funds needed to provide amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants.
“Yes,” Earnest said when asked by ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl if Obama would veto a government-wide budget that defunded the amnesty program.
