Who, in your opinion, is primarily at fault for the shutdown?
I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
There's no poll yet but I think it's ridiculous neither side can compromise. Yes, there are provisions that need to be worked out but why did the ones who oppose it not only wait until the last minute but have no alternative to bring to the table. Something needs to be done with healthcare and while Obamacare isn't perfect it's a start and maybe we should give it a try and if it doesn't work, then fix it.
Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?
If both sides agree that the debt ceiling needs to be raised, then what exactly are the Dems supposed to compromise on?
Easy, it's the republicans fault. They are being unreasonable and childish pricks.

I said in other threads. The USA should adopt UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE as per other federations in Europe. Austria or Germany are great examples of highly functional, top tier healthcare systems.
They both consistently rank in the top 10 world's best healthcare systems and are CHEAPER both in terms of public spending % and in terms of per capita costs.
So adopting UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE (which is NOT obamacare because obamacare is mandatory insurance) would be a win for everyone.
The republicans would manage to cut costs at the federal level, something they keep saying they want to do. They'd half the costs of healthcare... huge saving.
The democrats would be happy because everyone would be insured and everyone would have access to healthcare if they truly do care about this.
And the people will be happy because their congress would do smth for once that would be in their best interest.
