Wrong answer Buckwheat. The House, since 2010 has presented a budget to the Senate and Harry Reid has either not brought to the floor for a vote, or it failed on a party line vote.

No, Obamacare is part of the budget. It has to be funded like everything else. it is not an unrelated law.

Nice try at trying to explain why Obama has not had a budget since he has been POTUS. It is recorded in history. Check it out.

Harry Reid and the Dims are obstructionists.

That sounds great. Let's look and see what the Repubs in Washington have done about getting jobs to Americans.
.
Washington (CNN)-- Senate Republicans on Thursday blocked the No.1 item on the president's congressional "to-do-list," refusing to allow a vote on a bill that would give tax breaks for companies that "insource" jobs to the U.S. from overseas while eliminating tax deductions for companies that move jobs abroad..
.
Here is how your Repub reps help Americans. That is if the Americans they are helping happen to be all multimillionaires or billionaires.

You are correct. I would bet all you Repubs would have been in the streets had the 2011 Congressional Budget passed doing away with Medicare. 194 Repub votes for it. It is recorded in history.
As far as ObamaCare being funded and you saying it MUST be. If that is the case you could have saved Cruz a lot of time letting him and all the other TeaBaggers know that ObamaCare cannot be defunded. You miss the news for the past two years? All Repubs EVER talk about is defunding ObamaCare. All the budgets submitted by the house had defunding ObamaCare in it.

So you are saying that in a Democracy the Minority are the ones that make the decisions. And that at any time the Minority does not like a Law they simply shut down the US. I believe that is pretty much the same thinking of the Taliban. I know it is the same process as a dictatorship.

You keep skipping over 80% of Americans told republicans to not shut down the goverment over healthcare, why??

Talk about hating the truth.:-D

The facts are, the majority of people are not affected by the healthcare law. Most of the country are tired of paying for ER visits and hospital stays and free clinic visits from uninsured people. Although republicans are used to getting their way as far as tax cuts for no jobs... We're tired of paying for people like you who don't have insurance. Of course people like you who want us to pay for your free ride are against the healthcare act.

But, all that being said, America told the republicans NO don't shut down the goverment, and you hate that truth as well.

Progress? Obama, congressional leaders to talk on shutdown

Washington (CNN)-- More talks, but no negotiations.

President Barack Obama invited congressional leaders to the White House on Wednesday, the second day of a federal government shutdown over a stalemate on spending and Republican efforts to defund or delay Obamacare.

The 5:30 p.m. ET meeting with House Speaker John Boehner, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi will include a briefing on the havoc caused by failing to fund the government or pay its bills.

However, Obama made clear that he won't make concessions or engage in give-and-take negotiations on Wednesday with Boehner, whose Republican caucus demands anti-Obamacare provisions be attached to any spending plan needed to end the shutdown.

In an interview with CNBC, Obama said he was "prepared to negotiate on anything" regarding the federal budget -- but only after Congress passes "a clean piece of legislation that reopens the government" and "allows (the U.S.) Treasury to pay for things that Congress itself already authorized."

"If we get in the habit where a few folks, an extremist wing of one party ... are allowed to extort concessions based on a threat of undermining the full faith and credit of the United States, then any president that comes after me ... will find themselves unable to govern effectively," Obama said. "And that is not something that I'm going to allow to happen."

A blow to the economy

The shutdown of the government -- the country's largest employer -- isn't happening all at once.

Federal employees who are considered essential will continue working. Those deemed non-essential -- up to 800,000 -- could be furloughed, unsure when they'll be able to work or get paid again.
The shutdown could cost the still-struggling U.S. economy about $1 billion a week in pay lost by furloughed federal workers. And that's only the tip of the iceberg.

While many agencies have reserve funds and contingency plans that would give them some short-term leeway, the economic effect would snowball as the shutdown continued.

The total economic impact is likely to be at least 10 times greater than the simple calculation of lost wages of federal workers, said Brian Kessler, economist with Moody's Analytics. His firm estimates that a three- to four-week shutdown would cost the economy about $55 billion.

Let's see if these CONS can listen to reason. Let's hope so. If not they will suffer even more losses in the upcoming elections.

Government Shutdown Costs U.S.$300 Million Per Day

The GOP-induced U.S. government shutdown costs Americans $208,333 per minute,$12.5 million per hour, and $300 million per day. Each week, economic losses will total $1.6 billion.

Government shutdown costs hurt public AND private sectors

Contrary to GOP spin, the public sector will not be the only one to feel the pain of economic loss, either. Many private industries will also be hit hard, as travel and tourism decrease, in response to the closing of all US national parks as well as museums, and national attractions like the NASA Space Centers in Texas and Florida. Passports and Visas will not be issued, creating further economic distress for international airlines, cruises and other industries that rely on international travel as a part of day to day business.

Government shutdown costs two million workers their pay

As Congressional republicans cheerfully celebrated on October 1st, they were gleefully unconcerned about the hundreds of government agencies that would be shut down, the workers who would not receive pay, the economic impact of their recklessness on the private sector, or the overall government shutdown costs to the U.S. economy.

Fox News Host Proves Republican War Against Obamacare Is Foolish (VIDEO)

House Republicans haven’t caught a break since they shut the government down yesterday. The polls show that Americans blame them for the shutdown and think they are childish for doing so. The GOP relationship with big business is now threatened because the shutdown will negatively impact the economy and the stock market. And now, even a Fox News host is clubbing House Republicans on the head for the government shutdown.

In response to his colleagues trying to justify a shutdown as a way to kill Obamacare, Brian Kilmeade chimed in. However, unlike most times on Fox & Friends, Kilmeade took the opposite stance and took House Republicans to the woodshed for shutting down the government just because they hate Obamacare.

“You say [Obamacare's] unpopular and over 50 percent of the country doesn’t seem to want it, but 8 million more people voted for it because Mitt Romney would have been president,” Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade told co-hosts Steve Doocey and Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

Doocey claimed the 2012 Election had nothing to do with Obamacare and was therefore irrelevant in the debate. But Kilmeade didn’t back down:

But he talked a lot about it,” Kilmeade fired back.“And they knew that if they elected Mitt Romney, he would have repealed it. And on top of that, too, if this thing is so bad and is so unorganized as we’re seeing this morning it is, why not let it start? Because then you could get the Senate if you’re a Republican and maybe you have a shot at the White House if you’re a Republican, and you could begin to unwind it. But right now, it’s been flooded with the lock down information.”

Here’s the video via Raw Story:

Brian Kilmeade reveals: The GOP shut down the government to punish America for supporting Obamacare.

Surprisingly, a Fox News host finally showed some spine and spoke in defense of President Obama’s signature health care law. And he’s right. If Americans really wanted to kill Obamacare, they would have elected Romney President and would have given control of the Senate to Republicans. But they didn’t. In fact, Republicans lost the presidency as well as seats in the House and Senate. Repealing Obamacare was a centerpiece goal of Republicans during the election. It’s not like they kept it a secret. And the American people clearly rejected that goal.

So this government shutdown is just a petty response by Republicans to punish America for not letting them have their own way. It’s a childish temper tantrum and last ditch desperation attempt to kill the greatest achievement of President Obama’s administration, and Republicans are willing to bring the nation to its knees to do it.

Brian Kilmeade certainly showed some guts by defending Obamacare. Sure, he’s probably begging for forgiveness from Roger Ailes right now, but what’s done is done. Fox News viewers were finally able to witness a moment of sanity on their morning news program that was both a defense of Obamacare and a slam of House Republicans for shutting down the government. Criticism from Fox News is definitely not what House Republicans need right now. But it is great to see them catching hell from all sides.

Obamacare is mandatory spending. The funds are built into the law. The CR budget concerns discretionary spending ONLY. So no, it is not related.
I am not going to try and go through the rules of parliamentary procedure again to explain why both houses depend on republican votes to pass any budget (and we know how likely that is) again.
I have been over it too many times so either it is too complex for you to understand or you are just refusing to concede to fact. Either way it isn't worth my trouble.
I suggest you look up the rules. It is fascinating reading and you just might learn something.
ESPECIALLY since congress not passing a budget doesn't mean the President hasn't presented one.
On top of that, the Senate has offered to go to conference many times to get a budget passed through BOTH houses.

Sean Hannity Gets Called On Lie By His Own Breaking News Alert (VIDEO)

Last night Fox News’ Sean Hannity was made to look like a fool by his own producer, who in the process made two Republican senators look like fools as well.

The popular theme with Republicans in congress over the days leading up to the shut down has been “why won’t the president talk to us?” Just a few days ago, Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) tweeted a video that began and ended with this question:

Why is the Obama Administration willing to negotiate with Putin on Syria…But not with congress to address Washington’s spending problem?
During an interview segment with Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and John Barrasso (R-WY) on the September 30 edition of his Fox News show, Hannity asked the following question:

Senator Graham, let me see if I understand this. The president will talk to Syria, Iran, Vladimir Putin but he won’t talk to members of the House of Representatives or the U.S. Senate. Do I have that right?

Sen. Graham: Yes. But it’s an unsustainable position over time but yes, you got it right.

The problem for Hannity and Graham occurred a short time later, in a breaking news alert flashed on the bottom of the screen which said
Pres Obama called the four top congressional leaders tonight.

Oops!

It is entirely possible that the headline was displayed as “breaking news” in an attempt to make it appear that the president had waited until the last minute to call Republican leaders. Unfortunately for Fox News, a Reuters story about the call was posted some ninety minutes before Hannity went on the air at 9:00 PM EDT.

Since continued Tea Party opposition to the Affordable Care Act is at the center of the shutdown, most of the interview centered around that topic. As one might expect, the claim that the president wasn’t talking to Republicans was not the only lie or distortion in the interview.

Senator Barrasso also referred to the supposed “exemption” from Obamacare that congress received:

And two, eliminate this special deal for members of Congress and the White House — that again the president, the president unilaterally has granted. And I don’t think he has a right to do it. We need to get rid of that.

The “special deal,” to which the senator refers is in regard to the amendment placed in the Affordable Care Act by Senator Grassley (R-IA) which made members of congress and their staffs possibly the first employees of any concern to lose their employer sponsored health care. The claim that this somehow amounts to an “exemption” for congress has been thoroughly debunked.
Hannity also echoed the GOP claim that the president has repeatedly modified the law.

Well, the president amended this bill now on his own unilaterally 14 times.

Georgia Republican congressman Tom Graves made a similar claim when he said that the president had amended the law “19 times”; a claim that Politifact rated as “half true.” In an analysis last month Politifact pointed out that health care experts say that there have only been three significant changes to the law. While Congressman Graves got the number of changes correct at 19 (14 public laws and 5 administrative changes), Politifact says that most of the changes were in small matters, such as clarification of language, something that congress does on a routine basis.

Politifact also observed

It is also clear that Obama did not drive the majority of the changes. They emerged as Congress worked on various elements of a multi-faceted law.
And for good measure, Hannity wrapped up with the now debunked claim made by a Forbes.com writer that Obamacare would result in an increase in cost of $7500 for a family of four. Forbes resident liberal, Rick Ungar, called this claim “not only wrong, but kind of embarrassing” in his article which proved it to be false.
