A donkey should be shown threatening the shutdown

Hmm. Although House Republicans have voted to fund all the government except Obamacare, the ACES blames them for threatening a government shutdown, but gives a pass to Senate Democrats and the POTUS, whose rejection of the House budget will actually cause the shutdown. With publicity like this, no wonder the GOP can't win a national election.

Sorry I usually agree with the sentiments of your cartoons but not this time. You put the blame on republicans and ignore the fact that dems and the POTUS are just as responsible for the current fiasco. Why hasn't the democratically controlled senate passed a budget since Obama came into office more than five years ago?

To be correct ...

You would need an extension of the handle on the back side, with a donkey holding it.

The Democrats certainly have a voice in this. In fact, had they passed a budget as required by law and that they failed to do, this continuing resolution debate would not be happening.

AND if the government is "shut down", only "non-essential" departments will be included - in spite of what the president keeps saying. If they're non-essential, they need to be shut down.

The military, border security, air traffic control will still work. IF, as president Obama threatens, the military loses pay, that is president Obama's decision and he owns it!
