I don't want to see anyone go hungry. I would like to see those who have blissfully taken for granted for years that the Food Stamp card would be loaded monthly, and their check for doing nothing would be deposited have to get out and actually work for food.
Didn't kill our forefathers to work for food, won't kill the people of this country.
Please no one whine about the hungry children. This country already has a problem with childhood obesity, so this should help little Johnny figure out that mom driving him through a fast food restaurant isn't what a good meal is.
Meals on wheels will continue for the elderly and should and there's plenty of churches and other organizations that have food pantries stocked with formula for infants.
The American people will do what they have to, to live. Those "Big Wigs" in Washington are the ones who need to be reduced to pintos and rice. They sit on their a$$e$ and do nothing and eat like kings on our money. Do you think they could afford to live the lavish lifestyles they do if the majority of the people weren't working and paying their taxes? What the American people needs to do if the government shuts down is, we need to sit down and boycott. We should all walk off our jobs every last one of us until they get their shit together. Growing up I ate beans and taters twice a day, damn sure wont hurt me to do it again.

I believe you. But Obamacare didn't cause it. Obamacare hasn't even started . What happened to your sister is called opportunism. Its like when a hurricane hits and OSB plywood goes from $7 to $25 per sheet. Insurance companies are taking advantage of the republican generated panic.

Here is what will actually happen. The US Senate will send the bill back to the House of Representatives. Republikans can then fund the government or shut it down. Republikans started this game. Its your move republikans.

True, but they already knew that wouldn't fly. So it was only another republikan circle jerk like they had done 40 times before instead of working on actual problems. Blackmailing the president and the American people really sets an ugly precedent. It isn't about Obamacare or costs or problems with the act. If it were, republikans would have offered alternatives. They didn't. The only objective is governmental administrative dissonance. The idiots are still campaigning against Obama who cannot run again. That is the stupidity of it because they should be selecting and promoting a viable candidate of their own. They don't have one and their ONLY plan is more tax breaks for the rich. So they settle for pissing in the pudding.

Rev. Al got Texas's fat boy rep. Blake Farenthold to say that in the event of a government shut down he would forfeit his paycheck. Lmao, it will never happen fat boy needs his doughnuts.

I agree with your wife. Shut it the hell down. The top five states with the most federal employees are "RED" states. Let them cut off their noses to spite their faces. Could be trouble in paradise, for you and the republiCONS. ROFLMAO!

Also fat boy Farenthold of Texas stated that federal employees should just consider a shut down of the government as a vacation, and that at some point their pay would be retro active. What about the ones who live from paycheck to paycheck. He don't give a damn, his doughnuts are in the bag.

If you and your family are already covered and you are satisfied with the premium you are paying, then what is the problem? Just what could the ACA screw up for you? Okay so I get it, if the POTUS were a white republican you'd be all for it, right? Maybe if it were called "Cruz Control" or how about "Farent Hold"? Control your urgency to see a doctor or Hold your horses you can't afford it. Yea, sounds about right to me.

Shut it down! Plain and simple shut it down. It is not the damn government that makes this country tick...it is not government over paid workers that it make it tick...it is the average man and woman busting their ass in the private sector. At this point shut it down and tell the idiots and criminals in DC to pack up and get the hell out. They have been pretty useless for the past 40 years or so anyway.

I think it is time to shut down congress as well. Obama could, by executive action stop their pay and lock them out . Since Obama is commander of the US military, who could stop him? I think it is more important to pay military on time than to pay congress at all. Keep the military , keep the IRS collecting taxes and just run the government from the administrative branch.
That would be the ideal republican government except run by democrats.

I heard that!!!!

I got up this morning, the sky didn't fall and the government is "shut down". Works for me. I agree with you, run everyone in DC out including the POTUS and leave getting things done to the average man and woman.

It's only "non-essentials" that are going to stay home a couple days and they're probably glad for the break.

Everybody sign up for your Obamacare today, if not, the IRS is coming after you. I hear they'll beat you within an inch of your life with unnecessary paperwork they're famous for if you don't.
