    Yes, that's why Discharge Petitions are used frequently...

    Yeah, great, bring it to a vote. Let's see how the "People's House" votes. Do you even know why the govt. is being shutdown? Do you even have a clue as to what is going on in DC or are you simply someone who buys everything you are told by the left?

You buy the spin of the left and never look at the big picture. Pretty simple question, are the majority of the Congressional Districts in this country represented by Democrats? If not then the insignificant party is the Democrat Party.
    Not a diversion....just pointing out why no one can take you seriously. You believe that 911 occurred on Clinton's watch, GWB captured and killed Bin Laden and led the US to economic utopia. Why would you expect anyone to take you serious on anything?
    Do you know how many more people voted for Democrats in the last election than Republicans for Congress? You should educate yourself before you start trying to spout off about who really represents the views of most Americans. But as I said Con....I hope that the GOP continues in your vein.....I would love to see the GOP pushed even further towards extinction.

    all it would take is 218 votes, a absolute majority of house members, to pass something via a discharge petition. democrat's are all united, so all it would take is 18 republican congressmen to sign onto the pettion and vote on a clean continuing resolution bill that funds the government.

    BTW....the vast majority of Republicans are NOT teabaggers.....unfortunately, they don't have the backbone to stand up to the teabaggers that have highjacked their party. It is an interesting situation though....many have forecasted the impending Republican civil war, although not many thought it would manifest itself this soon. The reasonable Republicans need to decide once and for all whether they are going to take back their party from the wacko teabag extremists...or whether they are going to continue to cave in. I for one, hope that they continue to cave in, because it will spell destruction of the GOP as a national party which is good news for liberals, democrats, moderates and independents. As long as the GOP is not a viable alternative party, it is good news for the country...and the Teabaggers are helping us reach that goal.
    Don't know where you get your information but it does seem that you don't understand Congressional Districts nor the fact that the majority in this country remain conservative.

    18 Repubs would leave you a bit short of passage...

    Yes, that is what it takes to get legislation passed in the Republican controlled House. Why would the Democrats be so united behind a bill that has so many exemptions and is so unpopular in the nation? How many Republicans are there in the House today?

    Urban Dictionary: Obamabot
    Obambot:

    A person who supports Obama and is willing to vote for him but doesn't know a thing about him.


    It's just a label for someone who doesn't know anything about Obama.


    You call them a Obamabot because they just spew out their support but have nothing else to show.

    While I don't agree with the ACA, I don't think the GOP lying about their intentions is any better.
    The Republicans aren't trying to kill Obamacare any more than the Democrats want to take away guns.

    democrats care more about ending this government shutdown. there are roughly 200 democrats in the house of Representatives, and they have been so far united. all it would take for a successful discharge petition is for 18 or more republicans to break ranks with their party, sign the petition, and vote for a clean bill that funds the government.
