    So far the shutdown has seen a surprising lack of communication among the top leaders, with Boehner demanding the president agree to roll back the Affordable Care Act and Obama and Reid refusing to consider any such concessions under threat of shutdown or default.

    Boehner spokesman Brendan Buck released a statement welcoming the invite: Were pleased the president finally recognizes that his refusal to negotiate is indefensible. Its unclear why wed be having this meeting if its not meant to be a start to serious talks between the two parties.

    LOL. Why anyone believes anything he says is beyond me.

    What the House proposed was MORE than reasonable..... The House isn't going to fund Obamacare..

    You have it backwards. It is Obamacare that seeks to save us from the consequences of our own decisions.

    Shutting down the government over funding a law that was passed 5 years ago and upheld by SCOTUS because you don't like the law is reasonable? You're entitled to your irrational beliefs and biased opinions, and even your hatred of elected officials. But if you want to engage in debate, you have to make some sort of logical sense if you expect anyone to respect your opinions. You might want to pass that along to your elected officials as well.....

    Let me guess the SCOTUS don't judge based on personal politics???

    You're not even in the realm of my understanding of politics and legislation....

    The Iraq war was also LARGELY not supported by the people. So do you think the government should make decisions based on polls?

    Then get the votes to repeal it. Wait, the freaks in the House tried that over 100 times and failed.

    Looks like conservatives keep losing, and now want to punish America for not buying into their bizarre memes and obsessive Obamaphobia.

    So you think we should govern by polls now?

    Another dishonest tea party meme. Using this dishonest argument, you should have urged the Democratic Congress to hold Bush's budget hostage until he ended the Iraqi war because it was of course massively unpopular according to every poll.

    So did you call for that, or are you just pretending to make an argument like tea partiers tend to do?
