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.

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.
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 longer the government stays shutdown, more the blame falls on our fearless leader and chief obama... Tear down this Wall Obama...

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?

Until there is a Republican president and then you will be in angst about it.

None of the people who oppose Obamacare will be happy with this program no matter who is in office.

Of course, most people are not blind partisans as you are.

You are ill informed about the issue-no big surprise.

What is on Reid's table is an extension of individual mandate for a year.

Given the problems with it; this is very reasonable!

It is funny you are accusing anyone of acting like a two year old.

The Nazi Party, as well the demokRATic party are National Socialist brown shirt parties that adopt and use NAZI tactics....

Other than the demonkRats war on sick children, killing kids cancer treatments, and threatening to arrest veterans for visiting Patriotic War Memorials what did Obama accomplish last and this week?

Obama's Selective shutdowns anyone?? Tear down this Wall Obama...

The longer the government stays shutdown, more the blame falls on our fearless Leader and chief obama...

Obama: U.S. Park service allows immigration rally in closed National Mall in Washington...

facebook hates obamacare: Read the hate-filled posts and see ads pandering to blacks and hispanics...https://www.facebo ok.com/Healthcare.gov?ref=prof ile

"Carole Pratt facebook:- I have had my own private policy that I will not be able to afford to keep once the rates triple per the letter I received from Humana. I'm not eligible for "affordable" coverage on the exchange, don't qualify for subsidy. I am living, documented proof this is system will not work for me. No propaganda here."

Obama: Close all National Parks and make people suffer AND... all people or anyone living on federal land needs to pack up and get out. Yeah, that includes you-Obama... http://www.ktnv.com/news/local/226557661.html

House Republicans have passed funding bills for WIC, NIH, PNS, Border Guards and other agencies... Obama just say's NO...

Obama closes Florida oceans to fish and tourist: The Park Service will have rangers on duty to police the ban and deny access to an ocean.

Obama: Has shut down the Amber Alert website while keeping open Michelle Obama's Let's Move Drink Water campaign website. Michelle deciding and telling obama what is essential and should be left open...

demonkRATs: Now, we have Obama literally throwing grandma out of her home... Tax granny's wheel chair! Mo' Money!

2014 midterm elections truth and consequences... Hairy Reid demonkRATs: Let the children with cancer die..

demonkRATs: Priests threatened with arrest if they minister to military during obama's shutdown...

The government shutdown is on obama's watch. Stock Market is up and the Government is shutdown and obama's continued deficit spending campaign on hold... 800,000 Non-Essential government workers stay home...

The American Patriot truly see the brown shirt demonkRATs for what they truly are: ghetto, nazi, losers and obstructionists...

Obama Shutdown: Cancer Treatments for kids Defunded, Big Bird Receives $445 Million...

Obama: Armed Federal Park Rangers keeping people from taking pictures of Yellowstone and locking them in the lodge for two days...

Obama's Selective shutdowns anyone?? Tear down this Wall Obama...

When the Tea Party Patriots take back the country, you commies and moochers will need to learn and fish or cut bait...
