Shutting down the government on a rounding error - Putting the politics aside, I can't believe that Congress is threatening a shutdown because some oppose to diverting $200 million from Solyndra-style green-loans program to pay for disaster relief.

The federal government is borrowing $4 billion every day.  The amount they're arguing over is a shade over what we borrow from China every hour.  If Washington can't shave off an hour of spending from a program that has shown to be a colossal waste, we're really doomed.
