Pressure builds on both sides?

What about the pressure on those trying to make a living?

It's time for the president to work with "checks & balances", and not dictate.

So much for barack and his party being willing to negotiate.

It's the republicans who shouldn't negotiate. Record spending and not much to show for it. We'd be in the same position as an economy if barack had never taken office, and we'd have 7 trillion less in debt.

harry would have the house vote on the senate bill. However, since spending bills are, according to the constitution, supposed to originate in the house, what harry asks for is unconstitutional.

"Obama used a White House news conference to say he "absolutely" would negotiate with Republicans on "every item in the budget" if Congress first sent him short-term measures halting the shutdown and the extending the debt limit."

Lie. BO NEVER negotiates unless he is facing a deadline.

"President Matthew Shay wrote Congress must "reverse the economic crisis it has created through the shutdown..."

BO and the dems created the crisis. The house has passed legislation to keep the government open; BO and the dems voted to close it.

No need to default even if the debt ceiling is not raised. Plenty of revenue to service the debt; maybe not fund everything else, but enough to pay debt service.

Obama has got to be laughing.

Obama could kick people in the shin,-tell them he didn't do it, and many would believe him. Even if he did it in their front of them.

How crazy is this?
