    They're willing to compromise, just not on the Affordable Care Act. The republicans know they can't get a budget through that defunds that law but instead of being adults and keeping the government running, which is their job, they decide to act like children and bitch and moan.

    That's rediculous considering that Obamacare is the only point of contention. Republicans have sent several compromise bills to the Senate and the Senate has flat refused to negotiate. It is the Dems in the Senate that are acting like children.

    Exactly. and if the precedent is set, both sides will hold the budget hostage to get what they want.

    You see, it's not healthcare Republicans oppose.

    The problem is the extremists in the Republican party....a lot more so the the "Demo-extremists" .

    That precedent was set long ago. If you remember, Obama voted to do just that as a Senator.

    I disagree...many Dems opposed both Nixon's and Reagan's plans.
