Harry Reid hasn't brought pay for furloughed workers to a vote.
What's the rush? I say, leave them in limbo. The longer they are unsure of their future, the more likely they will be to put pressure on the Republican House to end their shutdown. Telling them they are going to be paid for taking a vacation is counter productive.

If you weren't sofa king stupid you would know that the CR is.
If you want to do it piecemeal, have Boehner (rhymes with toner) pass a bill that funds the ACA first.
The Democrats have passed the CR funding the government.
Republicans said no. Unless they can defund ands delay the ACA they will harm America.
WTF. What kind of threat is that?
Its like a parent walking into a bank dragging their kid, pointing a gun at the kid; & telling the teller "give me the loot or I'll shoot".
This is how GD dumb Republicans are.
This is how pathetic they have become.
My God people, have you no shame?
ObamaKare is what they dont' agree on.
How about funding those things they can agree on to get the government operating again?
You actually (stupidly) actually stated the Democrats' intent with the statement "...pass a bill that funds the ACA first."
Yup. You actually are stupid enough to make your ransom demand in straight language.
The Democrats are holding the government hostage demanding ransom be paid to their Marxist welfare program.

The answer is no. We'll talk about the things we don't agree on after we approve the things we agree on.
Now, let's talk about funding things we can agree on, like the stack of bills sitting on Harry Reid's desk he's obstructing from getting to the Senate floor so the Senate can vote on them and get the government operating again.

"U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Monday that the United States and Russia are "very pleased" with the progress made so far in destroying Syria's chemical weapons stocks. And, he offered some rare, if qualified, U.S. praise for the President of Syria, Bashar Assad.

Kerry, speaking at a press conference with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, said the Assad regime deserves credit for its speedy compliance thus far with the U.N. Security Council resolution calling for the elimination of the weapons."..."Let me be crystal clear," Kerry said, "we're very pleased with the pace of what has happened with respect to chemical weapons." He noted that on Sunday, just over a week after the Security Council and the international chemical weapons watchdog acted, experts had started the process of destroying the stockpiles.

"I think that was a terrific example of global cooperation, of multilateral efforts to accomplish an accepted goal and they have moved with equal speed to get on the ground in Syrian and begin the operations," he said."

What if Obama wants a default?
This is a man spreading panic and fear about the debt ceiling, an utterly irresponsible, reprehensible and unprecedented step by a president.
There is virtually no chance of a default, unless Obama orders a default.

The president of Russia called the Secretary of State of the United States, John Kerry, a liar, using that exact word, with the entire world as his audience. The problem was, Kerry was obviously lying, and the entire world knew that, too.

Do you really believe anything Kerry says about anything dealing with Russia after that?

What Russia did was take the United States completely out of the loop, and put the United States in the position of having to defend the Assad government in Syria.

You are a blind dupe.

Can Internet Trolls Take Down Obamacare?

A filibuster can’t stop health-care exchanges from starting up Tuesday. But maybe a clever Tea Partier with Internet access can.

Ted Cruz had his chance to derail Obamacare. Now it’s up to Internet trolls.

At least that’s the plan of Dustin Stockton, a top Tea Party strategist who sent out word Friday morning that he is organizing what he has termed “The Great American Troll-Off”—a chance for Tea Partiers to win cash prizes for tweaking the federal government.

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/09...

because as we all know after the dreadful showing at the last Tea Party rally, evidently if you ain't paying the fools they won't join in the circus.

and how bad is when the GOP in Congress needs the help of professional right wing chain email loving trolls?

so what do you think about commercials that tell you how to sign up for Obamacare? averaging 2 an hour here. how they got them past out local GOP censors is a mystery, but they're very compelling commercials. i bet even the local FOXbots are going: Now wait a minute. That's not what Bill told me!

I see you think the government should keep handing money to companies making tens of billions in profits as you throw kids off of food stamps.
Ain't that the right whiner way.
the so called subsidies are tax breaks. I'm all for companies keeping more of their own money.
