The shutdown could have ended on Monday if the Senate had agreed to removing the subsidies Congress will receive.
But in your mind Congress not having to live under the same rules they laid down for the rest of us is fair, right? And expecting them to abide by the same law as the rest of us is unfair, correct?
Members of congress do not qualify for "subsidies". However, they are entitled to continue receiving the employee contribution to their healthcare like any other Federal employee. Even the Republican who attached the amendment to the ACA said he never intended for them to lose that benefit. What isn't fair is that, unlike everyone else, they are being FORCED to buy from the exchange. Besides, the House was never going to pass a bill based on that alone. Where do you get such bull?

You're so lame.
They are operating with minimal staff, not able to deal with crowds, promote safety and security. It would be dangerous to operate under these conditions. What if something bad happened and there were no Rangers to respond??
The Repugnants knew this would happen, but they went ahead and screwed America again, as they always do.
Repugnants are disgusting.
End your House led shutdown, and quit trying to pass the blame, you nitwit. It didn't work, even in this echo chamber of Teabag fools.
You and your stompy foot POTUS are repulsive.

NEVER has the Lincoln Memorial been closed before! The very FIRST time this open air memorial has been closed by a vengeful OMB that operates under the WH directives.

<quoted text>who controlled Lithuania starting in 1940? the communists of Russia.
You avoid the truth like it's poison.

The occupation of Lithuania by Nazi Germany lasted from the German invasion of Soviet Union to the end of the Battle of Memel (June 22, 1941 to January 28, 1945). At first the Germans were welcomed as "liberators" from the repressive Soviet regime which occupied Lithuania prior to the German arrival. In hopes of re-establishing independence or regaining some autonomy, Lithuanians organized their Provisional Government. Soon the Lithuanian attitudes towards the Germans changed into passive resistance."

"Before the Holocaust, Lithuania was home to about 210,000 or 250,000 Jews and was one of the greatest centers of Jewish theology, philosophy, and learning which preceded even the times of the Gaon of Vilna. The Holocaust in Lithuania can be divided into three stages: mass executions (June–December 1941), ghetto period (1942 – March 1943), and final liquidation (April 1943 – July 1944).
Unlike in other Nazi-occupied countries where the Holocaust was introduced gradually (first limiting Jewish civil rights, then concentrating Jews in ghettos, and only then executing them in death camps), executions in Lithuania started on the first days of war. According to German documents, on June 25–26, 1941, "about 1,500 Jews were eliminated by Lithuanian partisans. Many Jewish synagogues were set on fire; on the following nights another 2,300 were killed." The executions were carried out by three main groups: in Kaunas (Ninth Fort), in Vilnius (Ponary massacre), and in countryside (Rollkommando Hamann). It is estimated that 80% of the Lithuanian Jews were killed before 1942.""

----------

Your bullshit doesn't line up with history. The Nazi's wiped out Lithuania's Jews, with the help of Lithuanian Christian Partisans. The local Christians in Europe, like Poland and the rest, were eager helpers in killing the Jews.

Hey everyone,

Are you aware of the latest mean spirited action of our stompy foot POTUS?

The OMB, who operates under the direction of the WH, has ordered the DOJ to close down the Amber Alert system as they claim it is non-essential.

No wonder they're happy when they win...

The median wealth of a House member is $765,010... For a senator it’s $2.38 million.

Yet, incredibly, they still enjoy all of this:

$174,000 salary
Free company car
Free gas
Free parking (even at airports)
Free flights almost anywhere in the world
Per diem travel allowance... up to $3,000 a trip
A month’s paid vacation
3-day work-weeks
Free membership to a top-flight gym
Pension plan and 401K plan
Full retirement benefits (including up to 44% of their six figure salaries) at age 62
Free top of the line health insurance with 10 plans to choose from
Fully covered – even with pre-existing condition

Being a member of Congress is the most lucrative "Public Service" job in the world. Are our representatives officially out of touch with the real America? Should Congress live like the rest of us?
