    All your question tells me is that you haven't been paying attention to what has been happening.

    So, your point?

    In all honesty, the right is playing games in regards to the ACA. If they don't like it, win elections and get it defunded. What the right is doing would be the equivalent of the left (when Bush was in charge) of demanding that we get out of Iraq or they wouldn't fund the government. The GOP needs to win elections, or quit whining.

    If the GOP REALLY wanted to curb spending, they wouldn't tack on their OWN pork to projects. They and the Dems are just different sides of the same pathetic coin.

    Politics is a game.
    And the Dems are plating it too by not negotiating, by not compromising their position.
    Doing what you were elected to do, is not a game.
    They have to play the game to achieve that which they were elected to do.

    It is when you play the shutdown game. All of congress should be fired for what they have done.
