You're the one who seems to think those things matter. I'm making a more general observation about how the public will view the issue. At the end of the day, it doesn't matter how the house arrived at the bill they passed with its 61 Billion in cuts, or what various conversations members of both parties in the Senate have had along the way. If there is a shutdown, all the public will see is that the Dems refused to cut even a measly 61B from the budget. In the context of the massive spending they've done over the last few years and the massive amount the budget is already over, that's what's going to matter.
You do get that by *not* paying attention at all to what the wonks are saying and just looking at the situation at hand, I'm more likely to see the issue as the public will see it than you are, right? What I see is the Dems unwilling to compromise on what certainly appears to be a relatively tiny amount of money for things that arguably shouldn't be funded with taxpayer money in the first place. The rest of the back and forth which you seem to think is so important isn't really going to enter most people's thought process on this.
