    Typical liberal blathering in here. They would cut off their noses to spite their faces as it suits them. Pass a balanced budget, one that the American taxpayer can afford. We are $17 trillion in debt with the entitlement programs we already have. Adding another one will not do anything to solve the debt crises. The takers do not care because they are not putting anything on the table. They have no skin in the game. All of this is going to be heaped up on the middle class earners (most of us in here) and for what? Socialized medicine? Something they had to pass to see what was in it? This is not good government, this is banana republic trash. The inmates have certainly taken over the asylum.

    The Hipocracy is that Harry Reid the democrats and republicans dont live like everday americans on a budget with a balanced check book ! Its very sad the Republican house sent a bill to the senate which would do away with the Obama care subsidies and exemptions for congress and their staff memebers and the democrats wouldn't even vote on that! ! Our President will negotiate with terrorist countires but not our elected represenatives! This end of the world talk is pure lies! The federal employees on shut down leave will get the money back later as an ammendment to another bill as they always have!!

    Oh hai, WE CAN FINALLY HAZ HEALTHCARE ?

    Obamacare aka The ACA is the law of the land and it isn't going anywhere. The individual mandate will go into effect on January 1, 2014--people are signing up today in droves to the point the site is experiencing glitches!

    Meanwhile in NYC, tourist from outside the Country are dumbfounded that parks are closed over a fight over............HEALTHCARE??

    Republicans tried to keep Obamacare from passing. Boehner yelled "H3ll no, you don't" on the House floor as House Republicans were encouraging the Tea Party protests clucking outside that were so loud, it was difficult for voting.

    The Koch Bro$ provided bus tours for Teapublicans to go around the country and disrupt Democratic town halls on, wait for it.......... healthcare for AMERICANS.
    .
    Republican Attorneys took their case against the ACA to the Supreme Court. Remember when Mittens changed out of his mom jeans into a suit and went to Washington to take a victory lap? (Even though he had written an opinion article saying that RomneyCare should be the model for the nation). But that victory lap would never happen since our Supreme Court said that Obamacare was CONSTITUTIONAL.

    Evidenced by our POTUS re-election and recent polling and the droves signing up online for the ACA today might be a subtle clue that the majority of Americans believe that Republicans should accept that Obamacare is the law of the land.

    My personal opinion is that 30 Million uninsured being granting HEALTHCARE would be pretty close to WWJD.

    Anywho, Republicans are catering to their base who don't realize that the government has to be funded, and the debt ceiling has to be raised to pay the nation's debts. Along the way, they are making sure that they don't win the Whitehouse for a generation or more because Moderates and Independents like myself, are tired of Republicans putting politics over country.

    RIP-GOP.

    Special shout to our VETS who crossed Barricades, I'm proud that our VETS didn't give into our homegrown terrorists' demands and went forth to visit!

    Breibert spin forthcoming I'm sure, but for less of a spin, this appears pretty accurate --> http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/world-war-ii-veterans-cross-memorial...

    Chief you know they won't do that because then people would actually have to work for a living. What is funny, ironic and sad all at the same time is this: congress could not find a solution to this mess which it brought on itself. The president did not wish to negotiate with republicans yet he does wish to negotiate with Iran. Further the sheeple who cater to whatever is spewed from the media don't know because they have been conveniently left in the dark that congress is completely exempt from what the republicans are trying to protect them from, the ACA. The house attempted to make the ACA apply to all citizens but the senate, more specifically dingy Harry decided that was unacceptable. It is funny to watch how people accept having the middle finger flipped to them repeatedly and believe the lies being told to them as if it was gospel. Shut the thing down. No budget in 5 years is no big deal until now for some reason (ACA) and of course the media will play and prey upon people's fears.

    Ok, how about scrapping it now and starting over. Only replace ALL bureaucrats with people that worked their entire careers in the private sector. Replace them with successful business folks, and run it like a business. Novel idea but I can hear the crying and screaming now.

    Excellent. Now get rid of that trash piece of legislation put on the backs of earners and job creators and pass a balanced budget so we can move forward. Otherwise keep it shut down so they can't tack on another $17 trillion in debt. For those of you who cannot comprehend that many zero's it is $17,000,000,000,000.00. Put it in perspective for you now?
