    Let's just pass Obama Care.

    I really want this country to suffer bad.

    Perhaps our people will learn not to vote in such corrupt leaders.

    Let's fire everybody, and start fresh.

    President serves just three years, and everyone else two. This is a service, and not a career. Good bye Harry, Nancy, and Barack.

    Government shutdown = less people traveling on the interstate = faster time for me to get to where I want to go.

    @Really You are right. You forgot the so called leader of the Country. He needs to be impeached. He has exactly no leadership. All of these so called leaders know that this day was coming and have done exactly nothing to prepare for it except plans for re election. Harry Reid et al have not passed a budget in over four years. Obama is a golfer and a show boat. What a shame and we have let this happen. The POTUS and the Congress The Dud Club!

    All the Democrats want to hold the Republicans hostage with Obamacare; It is the least the Republicans could do to the Democrats to return the favor. Don't hold your breath. Both party leaders will get together again to 'save' us from destruction and the the common man will be forgotten again. The Kingmen will solve this 'crisis' no doubt. "The price good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men."(Plato) Evil men will rule the day here and the common man forgotten. Business as usual will prevail.

    I can only imagine the memos and e-mails flying around Washington these days.
    But they had the drill back in the sequester days.
    The premise is this: Make your furloughs as painful and as visible as possible. Close the most popular services first. Make it count, people.
