I hope they're sending the bill to Mike Lee's house.

A reasonable resolution to a problem.... see..... people can work together.

Democrats = Terrorist..... never knew James E Faust was a terrorist.... must have slipped through the screening process. What a sad attitude to have towards your fellow Americans.... equate half the country with the Taliban. Very nice DN Subscriber.

Obamacare is fatally flawed.... then fix it. Stop the silly playground antics and name calling... put on your big boy pants... and lets get working on something productive. Calling people names... never productive. It is time for part of this country to realize they just aren't as precious as their mommies told them, and play nice with the other kids. This "its my way or your a terrorist" gig is getting a little old.

Republicans are the hostage takers in this situation. Negotiations involve both sides giving up something of value. Republicans think a shutdown is something of value which is why they're trying to trade it for stuff.

Democrats are the hostage takers in this. The Republicans proposed a budget for the parks and the Democrats rejected it. This is the way the national budget should be managed. Line item by line item. Not piggybacking pork onto every bill until we can't pay for anything. Pretty amazing that a Republican state can come up with the money and none of the democratic states are solvent enough to run their government let alone the feds.

I sure hope he gets a receipt!

Senator Lee and the Heritage Foundation said no one would notice. If you attempt to manipulate government to force leverage, when you fail you must resign. The heritage foundation is staging a big event at the Brandon Dunes Golf Course. the ex-senator could refuse to post his score until the ACA is repealed. Much less damaging to our country.
