Funny how you like to ignore the fact that Obama invited them to the WH to negotiate.
Second the agreement today has squat to do with the shutdown. Two separate issues. Passing this agreement will not re-open the government.
Watch tonight's news. Obama invited them to accept their sword. Its over, Republicans took Obamacare off the table!
Teabaggers caved!

Ed, I think a person who planned to be playing golf all day on the day the United States was going to invade an allied country and kill bin Laden was completely out of the loop and didn't have a clue the operation was even happening.
That's just logic. The timeline is another story.
40 minutes before the SEAL team landed it was leaked to Vallerie Jarrett the mission was happening, and she immediately summoned Obama from the golf course. That is the 40 minutes Obama refers to when he talks about this. Obama went immediately to Vallerie Jarrett's office, and not to the command center where he appears in the photos... in three different positions in the three different versions of the photo the White House released.
Upon being informed of the mission, Vallerie Jarrett immediately issued an abort order, which Panetta ignored, and which was later explained as being the result of someone looking at the weather map for the wrong day.
Unverified word from inside the White House is, Obama was really shaken up when he appeared at Vallerie Jarrett's office.

When I spoke of president nobama planning and leading the mission to get bin laden, it was meant to be sarcastic.

The projected cost to set up the website for enrollment in Oblamercare was 80 million and already its exceeded 600 million and the only place in the MSM you can hear about it is on Comedy Central.

Apparently Harry Reid won this one with Obama.

Obama is now rejecting the extension of the debt ceiling until November.

This one is on Obama now. So Dems don't come whining to us tomorrow about the stock market being unhappy.

Obama initiated the negotiations by inviting the Reps to the WH.
An extension of the debt ceiling til November is in my opinion the right choice.

Oblamer rejects it and Senate refused to vote on it.
Republicans send proposal to fund entire Government but to delay the individual mandate the way Oblamer did for business owners.

Republicans send proposal to fund entire Government but require Congress,The Executive Branch and all the administrations waiver recipients to be subject to same mandate.
Oblamer rejected it and the Senate refused to vote on it.
And the Republicans are responsible for the shut down,,,,really???
Oh so choosing between a kneecapping or being shot in the nuts was a compromise ? If you want to negotiate on laws passed in 2009 then negotiate on the 2nd amendment as well. I mean everything is negotiable but to go into EVERY meeting with the sole purpose of stopping health care is NOT A NEGOTIATION.

These tea bagger congress that misguided ppl voted for as a government haven't passed anything except wind.

Obama Rejects G.O.P. Offer of Short-Term Debt Limit Plan You dumbass...

By JACKIE CALMES and ASHLEY PARKER 30 minutes ago

At a meeting at the White House, President Obama turned down the proposal from Republicans to extend the nation’s borrowing authority for six weeks because it would not also reopen the government.

http://www.nytimes.com/

Obama's government shutdown proves just how brownshirt the USA has become since comrade obama, denying people freedom, controlling peoples lives, and denying people their rights..

By executive order Comrade obama, a sellout can fund, close or open anything you idiot...

Tear down this Wall Comrade obama...

When the Tea Party Patriots take back the country in 2014, you commies, brown shirt liberals and moochers will need to learn and fish or cut bait...

Well, I can lead a horse to water but I can't make him drink:
"In The Tax Act of 1986 Congress extended, as an incentive to keep prices low (subsidy), special favor to those who participate in oil and gas ventures. The tax act allows for Intangible Drilling Costs (labor, chemicals, mud, grease, etc.), which are typically 70% to 90% of the cost to drill a well, to be written off the taxable year, expensed against ordinary income."
"Furthermore, Tangible Drilling Costs (well equipment, storage tanks, pump jacks, etc.), typically 10% to 30% of the cost to drill a well, are 100% tax deductible as a depreciation expense over a seven year period using the Accelerated Cost Recovery System (ACRS).(See Section 263 of the Tax Code)"
"Lease costs (purchase of leases, minerals, etc.), sales expenses, legal expenses, administrative accounting, and Lease Operating Costs (LOC’s) are also 100% tax deductible in the year they were incurred."
"Any Geological and Geophysical (G&G’s) expenses paid or incurred in connection with the exploration for, or development of, oil or gas within the United States (as defined in Code section 638) may be amortized ratably over the 24-month period beginning on the date the expenses are paid or incurred.(See Section 167 (h)(1) of the Tax Code).
COMBINES, THESE INCENTIVES ADD UP TO A 100% WRITE OFF AGAINST ORDINARY INCOME. And, all of them are incentives toward production to keep the prices low.
Additionally, the tax code specifically states that a Working Interest in an oil and gas well is not a “passive” activity; therefore, deductions can be offset against income from active stock trades, business income, salaries, and so forth.(See Section 469 (c)(3) of the Tax Code)
If you’re involved in a dry-hole well you qualify for a 100% write-off of all costs, intangible and tangible alike, in the first year. Dry-hole costs are typically deducted on Schedule C or Form 1065 and are NOT subject to the usual $3,000 limit. These costs, when reported, should still be broken down by intangible, tangible and lease costs."
Additionally, "as an incentive to encourage participation in oil and gas drilling (as opposed to keeping prices lower, therefore, not a "subsidy") was added by the 1990 Tax Act, in which a small producer’s tax exemption known as the “Percentage Depletion Allowance” allows for 15% of the Gross Income (NOT Net Income) from an oil and gas producing property to be tax-free. This tax benefit is not available to any entities or individuals owning more than 1,000 barrels of oil or 6,000,000 cubic feet of gas average daily production."

“One of the main arguments to keep fossil fuel subsidies is that they protect the poor, but studies show that 80% of fossil fuel subsidies go to middle and high income households.” Fatih Birol, Chief Economist at the International Energy Agency
