    Are you kidding me? Since when is congress responsible for making the president's campaign promises come true? The list of things that congress did not do (or did incorrectly) is nearly endless but that does not give the POTUS the power to make new laws.

    Once again? Did you notice which party got it's ass handed to it and which one didn't, in the midterms?

    The last time there was a FedGov shutdown, it was less than 20% of the total and it had little or no political backlash.

    The question is will the Senate approve the bill? Or like so many others sent to the Senate will Reid reject it?

    We're headed for 19 trillion in debt and no one seems to care. I think the only way that we can slow and stop this is to stop funding what we can't pay for. I say shut it down. Otherwise our politicians will just keep on spending money we don't have.

    It's congress' prerogative whether or not to pass laws, so your logic is flawed. Besides, if you really believed that, you'd be blaming Obama for not passing the law when Democrats controlled both sides of the house.

    Since this bill is full of policy riders and corporate giveaways.

    And the only thing not funded until September is Homeland Security, due to childish righTEAs.
    So your "most of the government" quote is dishonest to say the least .
    I was just quoting the OP in regards to "most of the government being funded". Blame DemSocialist in that case.

Also, I find it funny that you point fingers at the "nutty tea party conservatives" when at the end of the day, it wouldn't be them to shut down government, but instead Obama because he would veto it if it didn't have what he wanted.
    Let me guess it was Obama's fault last time the government shutdown as well?

    It was his fault he purposefully went out of his way to hurt americans to make the right look bad.
    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    Yup it wasnt the guy who sat up there and read green eggs and ham because he didnt get his way over the ACA, it wasnt the people, or the party who wanted to defund the ACA and held the federal government hostage for it. Yup it was that DAMN OBAMA!!!
