    What's more important?

    So, what's more important? Is it this petty blame game of who shut down the Fed, or the economic effects it's having?
    Obama And Boehner's Shutdown Is Destroying Investors' Confidence In The Market - Forbes
    If history provides any guidance, though, continued brinksmanship could be destructive for U.S. stocks, and for global markets. With the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency, and a big chunk of global reserves held in dollar-denominated bills, a default would most definitely send shockwaves through the world’s financial system. If the BPC is right, Obama, Boehner, and the rest of Washington only have a few weeks to back away from the edge of what could be the next financial cataclysm.

    For option #2, I want to add the potential results as well.

    Re: What's more important?

    Depends on who you ask... and it's a great way to figure out who's a hack and who's not. Folks who would answer #1 don't really care about the implications of the shutdown. They simply want to point and scream "see? I TOLD you he/they were bad". We see this with every issue. vilification and fear is the focus, not solutions.

    Re: What's more important?

    I would have voted for a third option, both. Economic results are of primary importance but knowing who wants to shut down gov to get their way is also important.

    Any answer to your second point other than "both" is dishonest.

    The economic effect is the immediate concern whereas knowing which party wants to use American citizens as pawns in their power play is a long term concern. It is obvious which party that is too. Reps have tried to reopen national parks etc but Dems won't let them. Where is the dishonesty in that?

    The dishonesty is assuming that only one party is using American citizens as pawns in their power play. Republicans are doing that with Obamacare. If you don't see that both sides are doing it, you are dishonest and present like a hack... as I said in my initial post. Not recognizing "both" is a great indicator for that descriptor.

    From what I've seen, the American dollar has boomed over the past couple of weeks against all major currencies and while there have been a few bumps in the markets, the Dow is doing booming business this morning.

    Never forget, in times of economic and financial upheaval, the American dollar and the American stock markets are both the safest havens for money world-wide. Only fools are selling off America now.

    This is a political game, nothing more, nothing less. But your country's financial health may depend on how determined Republicans are to keep the pressure on.

    Reps new they would get the blame for a gov shutdown and after last time that was the very last thing they wanted. Dems on the other hand were drooling over the prospect and it is Dems that are trying to make the shut down hurt as much as possible so it is obvious who is using us as pawns.
