Honestly should I change my moniker to Obama and Biden and post things like 'We should raise taxes and abort children!'?

Awww, does making fun of Democrats bother you? Of course we can laugh at our idiots. But dot pretend that you don't have them on your side. And your words will arty a little more weight if you can be honest in your assessment of your own party. But you come on here with the stance that the Democrats can do no wrong. So we'll continue to have fun with you at your expense.
And the government shut down seems to be going well. My life is unaffected. Then again, I'm not standing there with my hand out waiting for my welfare check or Obamacare.
I never said Dems could do no wrong, that is just another piece of your imagination running wild as apparently, it always does. Kind of exaclty like your assumptions about my status, zero connection to factual, provable, reality.

AND, Democrats aren't trying to hold 300 million people hostage so they can get their hissy fit out!!

Here's a question for you, how long?

Exactly how long do you think we can go without a Federal Government genius?

How long does your genius self think we can go without one since "YOUR" not affected?

Now, after having since July to address what they actually want to release the hostages from their planned strategy, they can't deciee what they want!

"Rep. Scott Garrett (R-N.J.) said on Monday that he's prepared to block a debt-ceiling increase, consequences be damned, unless Democrats give him "a full delay or defund of Obamacare." Even if Democrats offered him changes to Social Security in exchange for nothing, the New Jersey Republican said, it wouldn't be enough to satisfy him.

Just 24 hours later, Garrett appeared on CNN and said he's prepared to block a debt-ceiling increase unless we "begin to address our entitlement problems."

One lawmaker, one issue, two completely different positions.

Similarly, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.)-- remember him?-- has an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal today, making his priorities clear.

The president is giving Congress the silent treatment. He's refusing to talk, even though the federal government is about to hit the debt ceiling. That's a shame—because this doesn't have to be another crisis. It could be a breakthrough. We have an opportunity here to pay down the national debt and jump-start the economy, if we start talking, and talking specifics, now. To break the deadlock, both sides should agree to common-sense reforms of the country's entitlement programs and tax code.

What does Ryan have to say about the Affordable Care Act? Nothing. In fact, the 1,000-word op-ed doesn't mention the health care law at all.

Much to the chagrin of right-wing activists, Ryan apparently wants to change the ransom note. He's comfortable with threatening deliberate harm to the nation unless Democrats meet Republican demands, but the Budget Committee chair wants to replace Tea Partiers' priority (taking health care benefits away from working families) with his priority (tax reform and entitlement cuts).

Now, I have a hunch I know why Ryan ignores "Obamacare" in his preferred ransom note, and it's not because he forgot about it. Republicans are reluctant to admit it, but the Affordable Care Act vastly improves the nation's finances in the coming years, and repealing it would add hundreds of billions of dollars to the national debt. Ryan can't afford to destroy the health care law -- he uses it in his own plan to balance the budget over the next decade.

More important, though, in the bigger picture, Republicans aren't just flailing, they're lost.

----------

They shut the government down last week, and they're prepared to destroy the full faith and credit of the United States next week. They freely admit they're prepared to impose self-inflicted wounds on Americans, on purpose, unless their demands are met.

And what are those demands? Even now, after months of planning and fiascos of their own making, the party's own leaders and members haven't the foggiest idea.

Here's a radical suggestion: maybe Republicans can reopen the government, agree to skip the sovereign debt crisis, get their act together, and get back to us?"

I think the Government should start printing Trillion dollar bills! Then it would be easier to get out of the rabbit hole. If the Government printed trillion dollar bils and gave them out to everyone the first thing I would do is a rent a rabbit costume and dig me some holes. Then I would hop around the yard until I hop into the house and knock myself out!!

The question is, how long do you think the country can go with the Government shut down?
