Interesting. The republican controlled House is passing piecemeal funding legislation. Aside from previously naming post offices and voting at every opportunity to defund Obamacare, they’d normally be hard pressed to find a vote button in the chamber. It must be confusing for them.

Representative Vicky Hartzler (r) via Twitter today:

@RepHartzler Congresswoman, why has the House not passed the regular 2014 appropriations bill to fund cancer research? #RepublicanWankers 8:27 AM – 8 Oct 13

Warren Smith ‏@WarrenESmith

@RepHartzler @SenatorReid pass a clean CR and those kids will get cared for. 8:35 AM – 8 Oct 13

Peter Ver Brugge ‏@p_verbrug

@RepHartzler This is the most backwards way to look at it. If you wanted to fund cancer research, why did you shut down the government? 10:21 AM – 8 Oct 13

Rusty Colbert ‏@RustyColbert

@RepHartzler @SenatorReid Put the clean CR bill up for a vote.. But you wont because GOP wanted this and will destroy America. #VOTEOUTGOP 3:41 PM – 8 Oct 13
