Obama and dems are using sick kids as a political tool.
The Democrats already provided funds for NIH. It's in the clean budget resolution sitting on Boehner's desk. All he has to do is present it for a vote and we can move on.

No, the parks were NOT closed by republicans.
The Office of Management and Budget, run by Obama appointee and sycophant, Sylvia Mathews Burwell, are directly responsible.
Geezus, wake the feck up.
Keep lying to yourself. Every move made by OMB has been in direct response to the Republican lead shutdown. Live with it. You own it.

Then you should be happy. What are you people complaining about? If you people really believed that, you wouldn't be trying so hard to spread false rumors.

Galt seems to believe that the GOP's piecemeal approach to budgeting replaces a clean budget resolution. He's never been one to use common sense.
A Quinnipiac national poll released October 1st show American voters oppose 72%-22% Congress shutting down the government in their effort to block implementation of the law. Voters also choose a Democratic candidate over a Republican candidate 43%-34% in a generic ballot, the widest Democratic margin measured so far for the 2014 elections."

Generic ballots has very little value. All elections are local

It's a way to keep veterans and their families from losing out and crucial organizations up and running until sanity returns.
Why wouldn't democrats want to at least do that?
They want to make some kind of point by inflicting punitive measures on as many as possible.
That's why.
The reason they won't do it is because they have already approved these expenditures. The only item in their budget resolution that the Republican House doesn't like is the Affordable Care Act. That ship has passed. Democrats are not and should not play this game with Republicans (and that is all it is...a game). Republicans need to come to their senses, stop stomping their feet and pass the clean budget resolution. Simple as that.

Where did you get that line of bull? You are the one who seems to be searching for someone to pay for your medical care. After all, it is you who has been complaining that you can't find satisfactory insurance on the exchange. The only real reason to go to the exchang is if you qualify for a subsidy.
I, on the other hand, have insurance. I've had insurance since the day I was born. I've never been without health insurance nor have I ever needed any government assistance...unlike you.

The obama administration job is to pick and chose what parks and services to close or leave open you fool. They run the government, not Republican you idiot.

You can not provide any legislation or google that Republicans passed closing services or parks without Senate and obama signature you idiot... It does not exist...

The Senate budget resolution funded WIC, NIH, PNS, Border Guards and other agencies. Republicans said NO...only if we can defund the Affordable Care Act.

Stop acting like two year olds and pass the clean budget resolution!!!

Dems: our way or let the kids go without chemotherapy when there is a solution sitting there that won't harm anyone including the Dems.

The press have even started stating there is no way to justify the Dems refusal to pass this resolution.

Yet, heartless you keep trying to justify it.

I think that there are a lot of people, just like me, on both sides and in the middle who are about to again say something very clearly.

The House is our closest means of doing so and I'm not a fan of letting the Senate strong arm the lower body into saddling us with this Act in its current form until we've gotten through the mid terms. Hold the line, come what may. We'll fix it later. Stocks are longterm. The House CAN do it and they should.

They didn't read this. We had to pass it to know what's in it. Really?? How could this be OK with anyone?
