    John Boehner: Obama owns this shutdown now

    Washington Democrats have slammed the door on reopening the government.

    The president isn't telling the whole story when it comes to the government shutdown. The fact is that Washington Democrats have slammed the door on reopening the government by refusing to engage in bipartisan talks. And, as stories across the country highlight the devastating impact of Obamacare on families and small businesses, they continue to reject our calls for fairness for all Americans.

    This is part of a larger pattern: the president's scorched-Earth policy of refusing to negotiate in bipartisan way on his health care law, current government funding, or the debt limit.

    OBAMA TO REPUBLICANS: Reopen the government

    As of this morning, Senate Democrats, acting in concert with President Obama, have rejected four different proposals from the House of Representatives to keep the government running and fund basic services.

    OUR VIEW: The Shutdown Party

    REP. CATHY MCMORRIS RODGERS: It's up to the Senate

    On Friday, September 20, 2013, the House of Representatives passed legislation to keep the government running – funding Medicare, Social Security, veterans benefits, and more – while removing funding for the president's health care law, which is driving up costs and hurting our economy.

    The Democratic-controlled Senate rejected this measure.

    On Saturday, September 28, 2013, the House passed another measure to keep the government running, delay the president's health care law for one year, and permanently repeal Obamacare's tax on pacemakers and children's hearing aids.

    Senate Democrats rejected the measure on a party-line vote.

    (The House also passed the Pay Our Military Act, which ensures our troops are paid during a government shutdown. Thankfully, that measure was adopted by the Senate and signed by President Obama.)

    On Monday, September 30, 2013, the House passed yet another measure to keep the government running and ensure fairness for all Americans under the president's health care law. President Obama delayed the law's mandates on big businesses and insurance companies; this bill would delay the law for everyone.

    The Senate rejected this measure too.

    I would say good old Henery "get the job done" Reid is to blame for not letting the Senate vote on the bills passed by the house.

    If Boehner thinks the American people aren't going to see through this, he's even more delusional than I thought.

    the leadership gets to decide what bills get to the floor.

    and what many of these bills that harry reid tabled were bills trying to gut EPA regulations, or gutting Financial regulations.

    If the American people think that this is anyone but Obama and Reid's fault they ARE as delusional as I thought...

    Seems appropriate to conference in order to settle some differences...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...
