    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.
    Too bad 75% of the country disagree with your spin. Keep tryin though....keep tryin!!!

    Its
    More like "spin is spin". The only ones responsible for the Government shut down are the Repubs. America gets it....despite the spin. The whole thing would be over if Boner would put the budget to an up/down vote. period. Fact is fact. Instead, Boner is so afraid of the teabaggers that he continues to lead the GOP in the game playing and political grandstanding. Fact is fact. Its sad and fun at the same time to watch the republican party self destruct.

    Please post any evidence that the U.S. House of Representatives is proceeding in a manner that is not specifically granted by the United States Constitution.

    Again, your opinion is noted, but this issue is based on facts, which seem to be in short supply.

    At least we get to see how our legislators voted on every single bill! Maybe that's why Reid is being so vocal on this? :

    With all the rifts opening in the GOP, the one tenet the party stood united for was that the federal government was too big and spent too much money. Surely such a bloated monstrosity such as this could go without a few days of spending, so the House Republicans had no problem shutting down the government by refusing to pass a clean CR.

    Fox News even took to calling the shutdown a "slimdown." It's like a diet for the government! Isn't that cute?

    Now, however, after receiving near universal condemnation and blame for the situation, the House Republicans attempted to pass a series of piecemeal funding approvals for various popular, very visible programs.

    The party that pushed the last debt ceiling crisis that resulted in the Sequester that cut funding to nutrition programs for women and children, cancer research, national parks, the entire District of Columbia, and the VA, now wants to fully fund these and other programs and is calling the Democrats cruel for refusing to reinstate these vital government services.

    And now, faced with the negative press of having withheld paychecks from more than a million government workers, the House unanimously passed a bill to give full back pay to all furloughed employees.

    To wit: the party that HATES excessive government spending now cares deeply about the continuation of the good work our government does.

    The party that RAILS AGAINST WELFARE QUEENS will now pay more than a million people to not go to work and go home and watch TV.

    The one "plus" of a government shutdown, saving the government billions of dollars in wages, is now replaced by the country's largest temporary expansion of welfare.

    All in protest of a government program that pays for itself and shrinks the deficit.

    Has the party of "fiscal responsibility" completely revealed its underlying hypocrisy, unable to stomach the actual results of their most ardent beliefs?
    You do realize that the Sequester was the work of the Democrats right?
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    And we all know why that is. The House is responsible for the budget. They have been "shut down" for months already. No Congress has been more derelict of their duties than the current Republican House caucus. I was only a matter of time before the entire Govt. shut down because of their laziness.
