    Obama has not made any new law.

    Reid supports the bill.
    The question is whether Boehner can get 218 votes out of his own caucus.
    Especially with all the legislative goodies that go against the so-called GOP stand against the deficit .

    GOP Sen. Coburn is threatening to hold up the Defense bill, which must be passed before the House spending bill is taken up. You forgot to mention that in your Reid rant--Reid who supports both bills .

    Of course it was. Obama didn't like the fact that Republicans wanted to defund Obamacare so Obama said "fine then I won't pass a budget and I'll let the government shut down". He was well within his powers to do so, I just wish when the media was talking about it, they would of mentioned this little tidbit of truth along with saying Republicans wanted to shut down government.

    I didnt know presidents have ultimate control over the budget. They can propose a budget (as required by law) but they cannot alone pass one, that is the job of Congress...

    What that Obama didnt pass a budget?

    Dem, don't tell me you forgot the President has veto powers. Anything he doesn't like he can just veto, such as the budget. It is what it is after all. And I don't blame Obama so much as just accept that he's president and within his powers to do it.

    Then you continue to agree that the GOP House can attach legislative policy riders and poison bills to funding bills that initiate the shutdown process, just as they are doing this week.

    The mistake by DEMs was not hammering the GOP for twelve months on this before the 2014 election .

    Don't want to address my question?
    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.
    Don't hate me 'cause I'm beautiful, but hate me all the more.

    Do you know of any laws that aren't passed today without everyone knowing what's going to happened? I mean there's the Keystone recently but beyond that? Everyone knew, as Obama had made it clear, what were his conditions to passing a budget and what he would veto.

    My point being, that it was never about what the Right wanted, but what Obama would or would not veto.
