If the economy is improving, as the MSM and the administration are telling us, why are the record foodstamp numbers increasing? Companies downsizing to 29 employees to avoid the costs of Obamacare is sure to swell those numbers even more, because families do need to eat!

    Greetings, ocean515.
    Hi Polgara

    When provisions of Obamacare are being waived off, or delayed, costs are now looking to skyrocket, promises about keeping ones insurance if they like are are false, and an extreme shortage of health providers is forcast, something needs to be done.

    It would seem the Democrats only see politics, rather than the practical, and instead of working to correct the mountains of predicted faults, just want to plow straight ahead, because of principle.

    The House has put forth multiple spending authorization bills to keep the government running, and Reid and Senate has rejected them. This shutdown is exclusively on their backs. They could have passed the funding for the Goverment the House sent over, and then entered into negotiations with the Democrats about Obamacare. What the heck, the President already waived off a major provision of his plan, so what would be the harm.

    If we push hard enough, these facts will come out, and the Democrats can once again be seen for who they are.

    So there you go. It doesn't matter what lies and rhetoric you're trying to sell.
    And I hope that the house continues to engage in the same type of extortionist tactics that are turning the country against them in overwhelming numbers. There was a poll taken in UTAH of all places that I saw this morning. By a margin of 56-37, even Utahns are against this teabagger ploy. You KNOW that when you are losing UTAH.....you are getting creamed in the battle...Utah is the most Republican and Conservative state in the Country. Good luck keeping doing exactly what you are doing. I will encourage your efforts as they are certainly helping usher in the destruction of the Republican party.

    Boner learned that trick from Reid -- when the Senate sent the House amended CRs minus the ACA provisions, the funding levels were the ones the Republicans wanted. The idea was that when the House rejected the CR because of the amendments, it could be pointed out that House Republicans were voting against spending levels they themselves had lobbied for.

    Both sides are playing politics and neither side is interested in losing for the sake of "the general welfare."
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    They are doing precisely what the Constitution charges them to do. It's not for the uninformed and easily manipulated to claim otherwise.
    The negotiating should be over BUDGET ITEMS in a budget dispute NOT SETTLED LAW!
    Boner and his tea assholes are holding the country hostage to get unprecedented political leverage in a budget extortion. They are treasonous anarchist and should be censured.

    Re: Does Piecemeal Funding Reveal the Republicans to be Hypocrites?

    With each passing week the real question seems to be "who are the republicans?" there seems to be several warring factions.......... traditional pro business Wall Street types .............. economic conservatives ........ born again religious fundamentalists ........... tea party reactionaries ............

    just who is it that controls the Republican Party?

    This latest flap in Washington over the government shut down is only widening the fracture within the party and exposing its very fragile structure.

    An asshole egocentric junior Senator from Texass has taken control of the house as the speaker retreats into the bottle.
    Anarchy is the goal of the TEA assholes and now that the government is shut down they are in ecstasy.
    They all should be censured and tried for treason.

    And isn't it fun watching them self-destruct. I am loving every minute of it.

    Tell you what, I'm thinking you're probably not the best judge of sound policy, so while I appreciate your opinion, it's worth what I paid for it.

    The only people holding the country hostage are the Democrats and the Democrat leadership in the Senate. I suppose one would have to add to a minor extent the amatuers in the White House.

    The action of the House of Representatives is precisely within the powers outlined in the Constitution. The Senate, and the White House have full responsibility for the budget crisis. It doesn't matter what the uninformed think.
