Don't forget Harry Reid, Obama's puppet. The House sent several
appropriations bills that passed the House on a wide bi=partisan basis, such as
the Defense Appropriations bill that passed last July on a vote of 315 to 109,
which means that over 60 House democrats voted in favor of it. Yet Senate
Democrat Harry Reid hasn't brought that bill or any others up for a vote.
And yet it's the House Republicans fault for shutdown? Each day the shutdown continues is harmful, but it also exposes the
shameful destructive tactics of Obama and Reid that aren't based on
principle, but politics.

@ Iket:Yes, the Obamacare is law. But so was slavery and men only
voting at one time. Bad laws should be fought. There has been enough seen of
Obamacare to know that it has major problems. A few months ago, it was favored
by most people. Now national polls show that a solid majority of all citizens
oppose it. As more becomes known of this monstrous 2400 page law, the more
people dislike it. Republicans are only trying to respond to what their
constituents are asking for. No to Obamacare. Right now, Republicans are only
asking Democrats to allow all citizens the same 1 year exemption that Obama has
given to unions and his own special interest groups. But Democrats won't
even allow even that much of a compromise. As such, the Obama and Democrats
should undoubtedly be blamed for the federal government shutdown.
IketSo how much funding? How much can we afford? All of it? For
how long? What about next year, do we fund it then too? How much do we
increase the debt limit to fund it? How high should we go? As high as
possible? What's possible? Would 300 Trillion make you big government
guys happy? Not enough? I didn't think so.
obama is incapable of being in charge of anything. remember his vast experience,
hanging community organizing posters on telephone poles.
You can blame:* Boehner* Republicans* Ted Cruz*
The Tea Party* Rush LimbaughBut, who is in charge? Obama! The
President.The President is in charge, not Boehner.
you guys are wrong the health care bill is law not funding it is congress.
president does not do budget. it is all on congress don't mix them up. it
is blackmail plain and simple. they should do what is the right thing and try
and win both house's instead of child's play.
So now it would seem that the choice is either fund part of the government,
Republican side, or fund all or nothing, Democrat side. Pick your side, but one
reason I'm a Republican is because I've thought for many decades now
that not all of the federal government should be funded to begin with.
Unfortunately, guys like Bush have let me down. However, no matter what party
is responsible, (both are) I think that with 17 trillion in debt, my logic tells
me my side wins the realism argument. I live in Realville. However, we will
likely lose the PR argument to the mainstream media who live in Fantasyland.
Obama caused this shutdown and Obama can end it! Stop your dictatorial tactics!
