    I read this, and thought that it was nice to see the GOP getting out there and offering viable solutions. What hs Obama offered? So far all we have is a temper tantrum and him running around saying that he will not accept anything that does not fund Obamacare.

    Maybe what they need to do is pass a budget makes permanent the 450 people that staff the White House, and grounds his air fleet until the innaguration day. If Obama wants to fly AF1 around, he should be required to pay 100% of the operating and logistical costs.

    I believe in the Dear Leader's willingness to negotiate as much as I believe in Santa Clause.

    meeting with the community organizer is a waste of time. barry is just not honest nor does he care about anybody but himself. he is a total disaster and will go down as the absolute worst president ever. But, what do you expect from someone that had zero experience in anything?

    Boehnor keeps saying the President won't talk about the shutdown. But all of the House is invited to a meeting with President Obama and Boehnor will only send 20 Republican Congressmen. I don't get it, what is he afraid of? I think they should all attend and here from President Obama about what a mess they are causing.

    It's time to take the overdrawn credit cards away. The government has to learn how to run this country with a lot less on a strict budget, while paying off debts. I say this knowing that my profession will be greatly impacted by implementing such a budget, but we have to look at the big picture.

    Our current system has fooled Americans into believing the economic state of affairs is stable. It is not. The lawmakers have allowed a condition where the treasury (which controls resources) is doled out to the majority (entitlements to all classes, military, public services, etc.), while the source of income is being marginalized and shrinking (taxpayers who actually pay money). It cannot sustain itself.

    Some people absurdly believe that we can barrow as much as we want and never pay the piper. Don't be fooled. THERE ARE ALWAYS CONSEQUENCES FOR OUR ACTIONS. Sooner rather than later, we will have to pay, and it will costs us dearly. The more we ignore the music, the more we will have to face when the recogning comes.

    This would be a good time for the House Speaker, Boehnor to ask Obama for his resignation so this country can move forward to a future with hope and accountable leadership.

    We need to throw him a curve and see how willing he is to serve this country or is he just out to serve himself and his Empire of power. Ask Obama to resign, its long overdue and it makes a statement we all share.

    His appearance in the congress puts him at the mercy of the representatives and the american people, he cannot hide from his accountability any longer.

    He is the problem and threat blocking our countries progress we have to remove. Remove Obama we remove the problem with the economy and over sized government and illegal occupation by foreign nationals.

    more smoke and mirrors from Mr. I will not negoitiate. I call him zero credibility. His last power house statement concening the debt ceiling. He said :"and that raising it “does not add a dime to our debt.” That has been the magic bullett in the past. HA HA HA
