It's like the GOP can't get out of their own way.

Seems like your chosing Party over Country. Interesting.

Because thats what it is, these politicians dont really care about their own people or this country, they putting party in front of their country. So screw my neighbor and my community, Im upset our party has lost multiple times at the polls, so we are going to do everything possible to shut down the government.

Get over it, you lost again! The people voted and the majority chose affordable health care.

I may not like it, you may not like it, but you cant try to change the will of the people. It doesnt work like that, and the Party will end up hurting itself even more.

All facts to the contrary .


Boehner: No End to Government Shutdown Without Concessions

Read more: Boehner: No End to Government Shutdown Without Concessions | TIME.com

House Speaker John Boehner insisted on Sunday that there aren’t enough votes in the chamber to pass a “clean” bill to reopen the government or raise the debt ceiling unless Democrats make some concessions to Republicans.
“There are not votes in the House to pass a clean [funding measure].” Boehner said on ABC’s This Week. “We are not going to pass a clean debt limit … The votes are not in the House … We are not going down that path.”


.......then let them vote and see

Even McCain knows it's his own party's fault. More specifically, he's calling out the Tea Tards.

How is it that Obama and the Democrats are at fault again if they had a deal in place months ago and Boehner and his cronies reneged on it?

Why am I not surprised at this bullshit. Really? Asking the guy to help stop maintaining our historical monuments?

Daily Kos: Obama invites all House Republicans to White House meeting, nearly all decline

No guys. The President is refusing to talk to us, which is why he sent a invitation to all Republicans to the white house to talk. Oh, this invitation was declined by a huge majority. I guess that rules out that talking point from the GOP.

Re: So... The Government is Shut Down...



Sen. John McCain to Fox host: Let’s have a little straight talk. The shutdown is the GOP’s fault | FreakOutNation


Quote:
The interview closed with McCain rattling off a number of proposals that are “achievable” for Republicans.

“Defunding Obamacare is not one of them,” he said emphatically.

“Well, we’ll see,” MacCallum said, prompting sarcastic laughter from the senator.

“I guarantee it,” McCain said. “Not only will you see, I guarantee it.”

Where are those GOPers on this thread talking about how the shut down was the President and the Democrats fault? The hilarious part at the end of McCain's interview was Martha MacCallum's sigh when he tells her "I guarantee it" after her comment "we'll see about that" in relation to defunding Obamacare. Why can't these morons get it through their thick skulls?

Re: So... The Government is Shut Down...

I saw this the other night and thought those poor as people in those states truely dont have a voice.

The bottomline argument is that if you dont have health care and go to any medical facility for help, you will get the treatment you need, even if you cant afford it. Then those costs are just spread to everyone in the who does have coverage or the tax payers of that state. So what sense does it make to do nothing and continue down the same path?

Folks, GDP right now accounts for something like 16.5% and is rising at the fastest rates ever in the last 15 years for all health care, most modern countries its around 10-12%. We need to do something and the GOP have offered no serious alternatives.
