    Like Obama said, it's time to move forward! So if you are in any way trying to justify the position of the republicans, by blaming American politics or our system instead, then I will have to, respectfully, disagree.

    What point are you making other than some repayment was made AFTER the 2009 budget was signed off on, by and large, by Bush prior to Obama's inauguration.

    Are you arguing that the 2009 spending budget has to guess at future recovery of bank bailouts?

    If it's time to move forward, why is the President refusing to sit down with all sides to try to find a resolution to the impasse? As it is now, the President wants to get everything in exchange for future negotiations which we all know will never occur...

    Ironic how that message has been blurred lately! It does, however, serve to divide, which is interesting when you consider that those doing the dividing are part of the wealthy that are being vilified. Obama, Reid, Pelosi, and many others in DC are multi-millionaires today, but you sure wouldn't know know that if, as a poor person, all you heard from them was "it's the wealthy that are the problem." Uninformed people are certainly a plus when one has an agenda!

    Because the crux of the disagreement is over the issue of obamacare. The healthcare exchanges are already up and running so what is the point of delaying it now? Besides the democrats are sick of having to return to the issue of health care reform every time the house votes to defund or repeal obamacare. Why is it neccessary to to vote on the same law 40 times when there are other things do.

    This is a weak point, so let me help you here: The republican strategy is to make an impossible demand so that they can then say that the President is unwilling to negotiate! The resolution is the political ruination of the Tea Party and the return to sensible democracy!

    There are no intransigent positions until a negotiation can take place, and when the other "side" refuses to come to the table, whom would you consider intransigent ...

    Keeping the government open and functioning is part of the congresses job. The negotiations should not include any haggling over keeping the government open.
