This is true but unfortunately it's the best system we've got. Well it was the best when elected officials remembered they were hired to enforce the will of the people. Somehow that's been lost along the way. Correct me if I'm wrong but did America just not vote for divided Government in 2012? Divided Government should bring compromise and healthy negotiations, not a my way or the highway style dictatorship.
Mitch McConnell let the cat out of bag early on__stating emphatically that the Republican Party would do nothing to assist the President in picking up the pieces left in the wake of BushCo.

By the people for the people has never been the case in my lifetime, but dummies buy into that nonsense__how does one explain the likes of the Koch's who not only wish to control goverment policy but also fund hundreds of traders in order to "nudge" the stockmarkets in ways favorable to their interests.

The US house needs an enema__the TeaParty was a failed experiment!

Try to imagine having a meaningful conversation with Amy Kremer.

The way this system works is you present ideas in Congress. Then debate these ideas & vote. If it passes both Houses then President gets his say.
When it becomes a law & you want to change it., you present those changes in Congress.
You don"t threaten the well being of our country to make those changes.
You people are just too stupid to get it.
If you don't want the ACA, win elections & quit THREATENING MY COUNTRY.

Why is their ample monies to try and sell nobamakare to the American public? Why is 634 million available for a computer program that does not work and millions more to pay the negotiators? just another example of nobama idiocy, screw our military veterans, most will not vote for liberal loons anyhow.

Eed is too stupid to know that the program is already written & sure it has some bug but they are being worked out.

The money for this had already been funded.

Eed is sofa king stupid he doesn't know that the shut down ha nothing to do with the availability of money.

It has to do with Congress bot giving permission to spend it through the CR,

Eed is just dumber than sh*t

Instead of b*tching abut it 24/7, give it a chance.
Take a look at the NHS in the UK for a glimpse into reality. It was sold as being able to pay for itself, in reality it costs the tax payer billions and for what? Poor healthcare, waiting lists and an influx of foreign doctors who will work for less pay. As the old saying goes - You get what you pay for' and believe you me it's not value for money.

Sorry but that's not how this went at all.

The Republicans agreed to fund all forms of Government, accept for Obama care and wanted to negotiate defunding parts of that law. It was Obama who was unwilling to get round the table, as was his mandate to do so. It's his power hungry attitude that has lead to this shutdown. Yes he was elected President but last time I looked he wasn't made King.

They should ask the Republican Party to pay their losses. Tell them to talk to Boehner. The shut down is affecting businesses all across this country & Republicans don't care.

But I am sure there is something in the lease agreement that discusses instances when the area is closed.

The key word here is 'Affordable' this law is so vast it's impossible to accurately quantify how much it will cost.
It's just irresponsible to allow something so big and expensive a free pass, when debt are at unsustainable levels. Yes, everyone would love 'Affordable' healthcare but at what cost to our children's futures?
No, the key words here are "health care". What is your/Republican plan to help those that can't afford it? Emergency room?

Well, just because they block the parking lot and bus turn around so no one gain assess to Mount Vernon is not blocking Mount Vernon. Really, Dave? And how do you suggest people were to gain assess to the building.
Exactly, they blocked the parking lots because they maintained them. When it blew up they decided to remove the blockades.
Only one in an OMG fit- is you as usual.
They blocked two lots temporarily. There is an overflow lot.

I have news, buses could drop off their riders & park elsewhere.

Oh come on, a parking attendant doesn't have a stack of barricades laying around.
The order to barricade the parking lot came from higher up with that person having full knowledge the PNS did not maintain the building.
You're a GD idiot. The park service would have a building in which they would store things like maintenance equipment & barricades.

These lots actually fill up & entrance blocked.

ObamaCare is the law of the land and it is funded.

The Repub's wish is to defund it before it really gets under way.

Too bad so sad!!!

I hope the Tea Party goes for it.

They will perhaps replace a few sensible Republican who can win in districts that are mixed Rep/Dem.

These Tea Party candidates will get no Democrat votes, too far right for independent votes & lose Republican votes.

The best result will be perhaps a few more far right wacko Republicans replacing other Republicans & Some Republican seats lost because their far right candidate can't win where the moderate Republicans could.

Net result is fewer Republicans.

So I say, go for it.
