    It's an embarrassment. We're acting like a third world country. Temper tantrums abound in Congress and the American people pay the price.

    Pizza and beer is all I need to survive. It is times like this that make me glad that I am no longer a government employee. I hope that the House has the balls to stand their ground and not give the Senate what they want. I remember obama saying that he wanted the government sequester previously, so it looks like a shut down is really going to make his day. I do hope that those who voted for him are hurt the worse by the shutdown and the effects that it has.

    There will be no caving by the Dems this time. It's time for Republicans to accept the ACA as law. Period.

    We the people voted and re-elected the President. He ran on the ACA and won twice. The Republicans need to get over it and move on. 8.3 million people signed onto the healthcare.gov site on Day 1. That should tell you the need is out there.

    I know (and everybody knows) "the need is out there".

    It's just that Obamacare has NOTHING to do with that need.

    NOTHING.

    AT ALL.

    I'm pretty surprised (and very disappointed) at how relentlessly you defend Him and also This.

    Oh well.

    Any Obama supporters care to explain why there's more security at the 24hr, open-air WWII Memorial today (to keep out those ever so dangerous wheelchair-bound veterans) than there was at Benghazi on 9/11?

    You see the President differently than I do. So let's just leave it at that. Nothing I say will ever change your opinion of him, and that's fine. We're never going to agree, so there is no point going over why I support him because you will refute everything I say and I will get upset so let's just leave it at that.

    Let's talk about how the shutdown and debt ceiling are about to crash head on.

    If this country defaults on the debt while we are in shutdown, everything we've been arguing about is moot.

    That is Armageddon.

    Which, for the Tea Party, may be the end game.

    And you think Obama gave that order specifically to keep out the veterans? You've got to get off whatever Bachmann is smoking.

    All the National Monuments are closed. The Republicans decided to use the ACA as a bargaining tool, they are responsible. The President warned them months ago.

    A majority of Republicans are livid that a small contingent of their party is doing this. The Senate Republicans are furious at Raphael and cornered him in a conference today. All of the Senate Republicans. Think about that. They blame him for this fiasco and demanded an explanation of his end game. He admitted he had none. This is what is driving this mess. A junior Senator that has been in office for 10 months has brought the government to a standstill. And doesn't have a way out of it.

    They voted for Obama, not the ACA. It was already law, and according to polls, about 65% of the population is opposed to it. 8.3 million out of 300 million isn't much, and I read that the actual number is between 2.8 and 4.7 million.

    So It surprises and disappoints you that someone supports the president? More than half of the voters supported him in November.

    I always find it funny when people are so wrapped up in the fox news, tea party, conservative talk radio rhetoric that they are shocked when someone speaks in favor of the pres.

    He is far from perfect but he is much better than what we've had in the past.

    Obama=ACA. Everyone who voted for him knows that.

    And 8.3 out of possible 30 million uninsured is a pretty fair number for the first day. And the servers crashed, as I knew they would, because of traffic. People want to be able to see a doctor, for crying out loud. What in God's name it's wrong with that?

    It's not a shut down it's a stalemate! Negotiations is none and the results is no bill to pass and one of those is the budget bill for the next fiscal year even that number is not even negotiable! It's a deadlock which causes government to self destruct! Yes majority rule but in the Constitution there's also respect the opinion of the minority! They're not in charge but they can sure do some real damage!

    Benghazi was an example of poor leadership. Washington ignored the requests for more security, which proved to be a major lapse in judgment. Remember what happened when Bush ignored the President's Daily Brief ("Bin Ladin Determined to Strike in US")? 9/11 occurred, of course. Obama should learn from history. Always heed the warning signs or suffer the consequences.

    As for the federal government shutdown, I actually don't mind it. When the government is closed, you learn really fast which services are essential and which are not. I would use that information to figure out which departments to downsize or eliminate in the future.
