    New Polls from this Morning:

    A new poll from Washington Post/ABC found that disapproval of Republicans is up to 70 percent among American adults from 63 percent approval at the end of September. Disapproval of Democrats is up to 61 percent from 56 percent at the end of last month.

    In a PEW poll I found this interesting:
    As the conflict drags into its second week, both camps have dug in.. Forty-four percent of people say Republican leaders should give in on their demand that a budget deal include cuts or delays to the Affordable Care Act. An almost equal percentage, 42, say Mr. Obama should agree to changes to the law.

    Here is something both parties should listen to:
    The appetite for compromise is more than just a majority, Pew found. Sixty-one percent of those surveyed say lawmakers who share their views should be willing to make compromises; 29 percent say they should not.

    More from Pew
    Thirty-eight percent of Americans said Republicans were to blame for the shutdown, versus 30 percent who blame the Obama administration and 19 percent who blame both, according to the Pew poll, which was conducted in the days since the shutdown came to pass.

    And this:
    The ABC News/Washington Post poll, meanwhile, found that 70 percent of Americans disapprove of the way congressional Republicans are handling negotiations over the federal budget, while just 24 percent approve. (Last week, 26 percent approved of the GOP’s handling, and 63 percent disapproved.)
    Congressional Democrats also suffered: 61 percent of Americans disapprove of the way they’re handling the budget (up from 56 percent last week), while 35 percent approve (up one point from last week).
    So 70% disapprove of republican actions and 61% disapprove of democrat actions? That sounds like a wash to me.

    They obviously lack proper critical thinking skills. I think they are a product of the modern indoctrination skills taught at the U of I (University of Indoctrination.)

    I think we should cut the Defense spending by 50%. No $50B to NSA; No 50B to Statel; No $50B to Homeland Security--cut all those to $25 or less. Next, chop that huge $667B Military Budget down to 300--tops. Lastly, look closely at what we give Vets. Maybe we should cut what we give them by 50% too...that is if we are to cut Foodstamps and other gvt assistance programs.
    Congress has agreed to pay for all EXISTING DEBT, what part of that do you not understand? Apparently debt service is a foreign concept to you as you continue to buy the leftwing rhetoric now but not in 2006 when Senator Obama was spouting a different story.

    The Republican House submitted a budget that reduced the deficit, it was defeated by the Democrats. We are operating on CR's and have been for the past 5 years. There is enough revenue to fund the entitlement programs including interest on the debt. How many times do I have to beat you up on the actual data before you stop posting and making yourself look foolish?

    The Senate has passed a CR with Ryan budget levels and that is not low enough? WTF? The American people rejected him at the polls and the Dems still passed a CR with his numbers and you call that lack of compromise?

    Republicans won the House in 2010 with the mandate to repeal Obamacare, the Senate prevented that. The Republicans then resort to not funding Obamacare, The Senate rejected that, the Senate shutdown the govt. Pretty simple to understand except to the low information voter and Obamabots.

    So you have the same lack of understanding as the T's in the House. You need to take some courses on Govt. A majority in one House of Congress is in no way a mandate.

    The 2013 United States federal budget is the budget to fund government operations for the fiscal year 2013, which is October 2012–September 2013. The original spending request was issued by President Barack Obama in February 2012.[1] The actual appropriations for fiscal year 2013 was enacted in two appropriations bills in September 2012 and March 2013 by the full Congress, in accordance with the United States budget process.
