    Re: Most would blame Republicans

    When you brought up debt ceiling I realized you can't even be on topic. This is about a continuing resolution for spending - nothing to do with the debt ceiling. So why are you full of misinformation? Can't you defend your position without it?

However, the are willing to hold hostage almost 1,000,000 jobs, the full faith and credit of the country to get what they want??? How is that a Democrate problem? Republicans are at fualt here and everyone knows this outside of the Faux News zombies.

    I think it would be hilarious if the Senate left the Obamacare defunding but then added a poison pill that the TP won't accept. "OK, defund Obamacare and raise inheritance taxes."
    ^ That is a GREAT idea! And I hope it passed that way too. Get rid of Obamacare. Raise inheritance taxes. Win-win!

    I'm not ranting on Fox at all, I used it as a rebutal to blaming the media. Fox News DOES get the message out there, so it's pretty stupid to blame the (liberal) media on something as an excuse.

    And a Robin Hood tax. And eliminate the lowest income tax bracket. And institute a fee-and-dividend system. And pass the DISCLOSE Act. And allow importation of prescription medicines. And abolish the DEA and the War on Drugs. And close down every military base in every other country that doesn't want us there. And a few other things.

    Would I trade all that for a year-long delay of the Affordable Care Act? In a heartbeat.

    It would even be legal with what the GOP is proposing. It would be made into law. Unlike what Obama did in not following the law he pushed for.

    We'll all just have to wait and see how things turn out, eh?

    A lot of things can happen or not happen in thirty years.

    Republicans are not refusing to fund government. It is the Democrats refusing to fund any of government unless they get 100% of what the want.
    ACA already passed five years ago. This has already been done. I think it is really fair to say. Republicans dont want this and now they are holding a gun to their head threatening suicide unless they get what they want. I say pull the trigger!

    Where is the ACA in the budget? Oh yeah. We don't have a budget. That's why continuing resolutions are required ad nauseam. The democrats designed this all or nothing approach, and now they're complaining because they're victims of their own device. Here's an idea. Go back to the budget and appropriations procedure that the government was designed to use, and maybe some negotiation would be possible. That would necessarily require a budget - which is something the democrats are either too stupid to produce or too dishonest to employ.
