    That's false, partisan, hyperbole.

    That's funny.

    Cute even.

    You actually believe that someone in Congress is interested in federal laws and that this isn't just the Tea Party attempting to poke President Obama in the eye on ACA kickoff day.

    Awwww!

    Since these Tea Baggers are "men and women of law and principal" I'm sure they won't knuckle under in a couple of days here and come to terms with the Democrats.

    LOL

    No dude, this was a stunt, pure and simple.

    Post up a couple links of individual Tea Partiers being quoted as citing the anti-deficiency act as the reason for this shutdown.

    Cuz after all, we're interested in their stated reasons for doing what they're doing, not discussion forum pundits rolling out reason # 3,467 for why they might be doing it.

    “Now it is not good for the Christian’s health to hustle the Aryan brown,
    For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    Show me one Republican that campaigned on shutting down the Government.

    The Democrats shutdown the Government by the unwillingness to compromise, and their unwillingness to put forth a budget.

    Sigh.

    The interpretation of the Anti-Deficiency Act that results in a govt shutdown during these disputes came into being during the Carter administration. Last I checked, the Carter administration was subsequent to the FDR administration.

    Maybe a little "freshening-up" on your history is in order, hmm?

    Why would we ever negotiate something that there is nothing to negotiate about just because you put a gun to the head of the American public?

    There is plenty to negotiate about, namely the individual mandate and the taxes.
