    This would be after the House rejected them several time since april 2013. So try again!

    We have nihilism scorched earth conservative liftoff.

    This is why there is not point in talking to conservatives. They have to be removed from office, one way or another.

    It's common knowledge....do your own homework and look it up yourself.
    It's also common knowledge that the senate failed to pass a budget for four years under Harry Reid's leadership. How have the republicans been refusing to go to conference when there hasn't been anything to conference over?

It's a damn shame the republicans waited this long to force a compromise.
    Actually the Senate has offered compromises and even put into effect some of the GOP's odious agenda. So typically you're factually challenged.

    The point is that the GOP is fixated on repealing Obamacare, they don't have the votes, so they're willing to destroy the economy in retaliation, and since we don't run government by hostage taking, there is no point in talking to them. They need to be removed from office.

    Hey kids, another nonsequitur from the conservative gallery. Once they lose on a point, they shift to the next miserable meme.

    Re: John Boehner: Obama owns this shutdown now

    Strange thread, either willful ignorance or goose-stepping partisanship. This is divided government, this is how its done.

    I wonder if people could step away a take a truly objective look at the last CR that the House sent to the Senate. It had two riders. Giving the same delay that the Obama Administration gave to corporate and Wall Street interests (making them rather happy) to every American and removing a subsidy for Congress and their staffers which no American making the same income could ever qualify for. This is actually a rather reasonable compromise.

    Whats surprising me is that liberals would be opposed to this at all. Its doesn't halt Obamacare, funding for it remains and it would stop a a sizable subsidy for people who clearly don't need it and only have it for governmental privilege. Does a someone making over $100k really need a 75% premium subsidy?

    Was a continued government shut-down the consequence for the rejection in April? I think not...so try again.

    Lol the Senate wanted to go to a budget commitee 18 times and Republicans said no. Now all of the sudden Dems are supposed to their bidding because they are throwing a fit.

    So the Democrats are refusing to conference, hence refusing to negotiate the re-opening of the government. Thanks for clearing that up!
