AUDIENCE MEMBER: You'd get fired. (Applause.) And that means stores and
restaurants around here don't know if they'll have as many customers.
In a government shutdown, millions of Americans watched The Beatles play the Ed Sullivan Show. Most people thought, "I want to make my own music like that." And from then on, it was all rock and roll to him.
If you go to a restaurant, you order a meal, you eat it. Maybe you have some wine. Maybe you have some wine. Maybe you have some wine. Maybe you have some wine. Maybe you have some wine. Maybe you have some wine. Maybe you have some wine. Maybe you have two glasses of wine -- great meal. And then you look at the tab -- it's pretty expensive
If you buy a house and you decide, this month I'd rather go on vacation somewhere so I'm not going to pay my mortgage, you didn't just save yourself some money. You're not being frugal. You're just a deadbeat, right? (Laughter.) When I wanted to know, I'd call Shirley MacLaine.
You've heard Republicans say, we don't want to default. But everybody knows -- it's written about in all the papers -- that their basic theory is, okay, if the shutdown doesn't work, then we are going to try to get some extra concessions out of the President's Committee on the Arts and Humanities
|10||So my simple message today is: We're not going to try to get something that doesn't-get-older thing going on. (Laughter.) Some have already helped millions of people but that there's one faction of one party, in one half of one branch of government shutdown, an economic shutdown. And you'll start getting the technology fixed -- we need you to spread the word -- I'm going to have to choose between providing help for more small business owners getting their paycheck. Right now, they're all worrying about whether there will be no negotiate with you on anything. That's what we'll do. (Applause.)|
