i don't know. i don't have a television.:/
their news has to be reporting about it some though, i had a discussion with 2 of my older greek neighbors about the USA. one said "how about the government in US? it's going crazy, eh?" haha
the political scene in Greece is crazy right now too so i'd say their news is more focused on that. If you haven't heard about Golden Dawn, look it up. it's awesome.
I do have to say 1 more thing, I envy you because I've always wanted to go to Greece.

Sounds like it's working in spite of the glitches:)
I do not know if it is true, I went to CNN website looking for that and they had nothing about it. Carny said the numbers would not be out until end of October

You got your change. I don't know about the hope though. The change isn't so good either. So what the fuck has he done for either side? Cause more decision than any other president in history. Some damn good accomplishment. I think that is what the enemy does in war. Divide and conquer. So I guess that makes him the enemy of the United States. We should call the US, the DSA. Divided States of America.

When is he going to stop campaigning and start leading? He has been totally absent during this government shut down. Pathetic, truly pathetic.

With just a few days left before the federal government reaches its borrowing limit, House Republican leaders had unveiled a proposal earlier in the day to re-open the government and raise the borrowing limit that they thought could pass the embattled Republican-led chamber. But just moments after Republicans submitted it to the House Rules Committee for a review, the panel announced that it would postpone its hearing indefinitely — suggesting the votes were not there to pass it.

The key parts of the plan would have kept the government open through mid-December and grant the Treasury Department authorization to borrow through February. But the proposal also includes a stipulation that members of Congress, their staff and administration officials — including President Barack Obama — be forced to obtain health insurance coverage through the exchanges established under Obamacare. Unlike most Americans, they also would not be eligible to receive federal subsidies to offset the cost of those plans or seek financial help from their employer.
==========
Look at that. Ready to pass a bill to end this nonsense and what was the deal breaker????. They dont want forced into Obamacare exhanges and to lose their subsidies. What wondeful politicians who never put themselves above the American people. Pfffffft.

Come on George, why would Obama and congress want to be a part of Obamacare? I don't blame republican congressmen, they said all along that it, like Obama, is a piece of shit but democrat politicians should own it and be a part of it.

Of course we couldnt actually expect Republicans to put the best interest of the American people above their own greed and personal self interest now could we.
