  • The GOP’s shutdown game plan: Create a fake middle ground and blame Democrats for refusing to negotiate. What they’re hiding is the absurdity of the Republican position: that a law (Obamacare) passed by both houses of Congress, fully debated in a subsequent presidential election, and unsuccessfully challenged in more than 40 legislative votes by the losing side should be subject to repeal, defunding or delay because a single party, narrowly controlling a single chamber of Congress, otherwise refuses to fund the rest of the government. Don’t shut down the government simply because you don’t like a law that has already passed. That’s not how it works. Grow up.
    ------------------------
    Everybody is wanting to blame the Republican party for the shut down...our President is trying to be a little dictator with his crony Harry Reid. If they’d straighten up and quit crying like little babies we might get this job done and get the country back on track.
    ------------------------
    I’m excited and grateful to be able to afford health insurance now. Things are looking up for me.
