    The extension is passed. Now, if it gets stopped along the way, because it doesn't include somebodies pet project, who is to blame?

    The comments I read on the news stories all seem to applaud the GOP, without exception.

    Republicans have voted 40 times to defund the affordable care act.

    I would understand shutting down the government over somthing like the NSA or the patroit act, but this obsession with defunding the affordable care act is turning the Republican Party into a single issue party like the prohibition party.

    I think it's because the American people don't WANT Obama care. And I don't think the GOP will suffer because of it because almost everybody is mad at Obama for those OTHER crimes. They want to see him HURT! Not physically, but his programs defunded, and serious lame duckedness following!
    Too bad all of that stuff didn't come out before 2012.

    Actually it's an attempt to exercise legislative power that they DO have. Last time I checked, Dems were the ones who passed this bill (ACA) without even reading in the first place. If it were not for that, we wouldn't be in this predicament. As it is, we now have a healthcare system that is almost fully implemented that hurts the country. It is far more expensive, exclusionary, and oppressive than was advertised. In addition, it's putting Americans out of work. Had THAT not happened, the House would have no such beef to pick.
    You speak of this as an outsider. I don't get paid if they shut the gov't down. Yet, I still support it. The ACA is a disaster and needs to at least be delayed a year so it can be vetted further. That is a compromise Pres Obama and the Senate could make. They won't do so though. They know they are in danger during the next few election cycles and do not want the ACA to still be in jeopardy while the GOP controls both branches of Congress or possible the House and the Presidency. That is what this is about.
