    Thank you for admitting your mistake and replying to a position I had not taken in a post you replied to with inaccuracies.

    What did I get wrong? that you now embrace the MAJORITY when in the past you refer to them as the MOB? Was that wrong?

    Or telling you that I did not embrace any idea of a MAJORITY in this discussion on this topic either pro or con? Was that wrong?

    Re: Who do you hold at fault for the Govt shutdown?

    new poll just out from CNN/ORC ON WHO IS TO BLAME. Seems the answer is everyone and everybody.

    A new CNN/ORC International poll shows that no one is coming out ahead in the current federal funding impasse, but Republicans are taking more heat than the Democrats.

    According to the survey, 63 percent of those questioned said they were angry at Republicans, with 57 percent also angry at Democrats, and 53 percent unhappy with President Obama. Nearly half of those surveyed said the shutdown has caused major problems.

    Those numbers are higher than during the shutdowns of 1995-96, when President Bill Clinton and Republicans, under then House Speaker Newt Gingrich, reached an impasse over government funding. Republicans took most of the blame during that stoppage (as evidenced by the famous New York Daily News cover from November 1995).

    When the crisis ended, President Clinton’s approval numbers rose to some of their highest of his first term. But this time around, with President Obama receiving a much higher share of the blame in polls — and with no end in sight — it doesn’t look like any winner will emerge anytime soon.

    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Ridiculous that even 1 American with an IQ over 95 would lay any responsibility at all what so ever onto Democrats.
    Republicans have placed a gun to our heads. How can you blame the victim instead of the attacker?

    Dems gave Republicans everything they could have asked for already in the way of a budget so terribly low it is near Ryan levels.
    Republicans do not care about the debt any more.
    They want to slow, hinder, or harm the Affordable Care Act in some way shape or form or else they are willing to destroy this Country and damage the entire world economy in the process.

    I say let them do it. And afterwards lets drag them into the streets and blow their brains out.

    I think tar and feathering would be a better option

    The Republican House has kept their gym and spa open.
    The "do as we say" not as "we do" caucus.

    Well....it's pretty essential compared to poor kids with cancer...let's be honest.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    The majority of the "majority caucus" in the House is still a minority. The Repubs will always need Dem votes by the Hastert rule.
    This problem is not the Hastert rule, it is the 218-rule from one caucus.
    Like dems being dropped over Grand Canyon without a parachute.

    Nope. They are doing their best to keep people employed.
