Ironic to think unions could be supporting the shutdown because they hate Obamacare just as much as conservatives and even some democrats including independents who lean both ways.
Sure dimwit, the majority of the federal workers that have been put out of work belong to the National Federation of Federal Employees, a union affiliated with the AFL-CIO. I'm sure that they're really on board with their members going without paychecks.
The unions don't hate the ACA liar, they feel that there's some problems in the law that need to be fixed.

THESE GOP NEED TO BE VOTED OUT OF OFFICE MORE
WORRY ABOUT THEIR SEAT THAN DOING THE RIGHT THING!!!!!!If America’s journalists had ever told the truth about what Barack Obama and Harry Reid have done, neither of them would be in office now. Only a fool would claim that electing Mitt Romney to the White House and putting Mitch McConnell in charge of the Senate would have magically solved the federal government’s fiscal problems. A $17 trillion national debt is not amenable to quick fixes. However, the defeat of Obama and Reid would have ended the pathetic political charade that is now being played out in Washington, where the Democrats are depicted as the voices of responsible leadership, while Cruz and other conservative foes of Obamacare are excoriated as reckless demagogues.

A $17 trillion national debt is not amenable to quick fixes. However, the defeat of Obama and Reid would have ended the pathetic political charade that is now being played out in Washington, where the Democrats are depicted as the voices of responsible leadership, while Cruz and other conservative foes of Obamacare are excoriated as reckless demagogues. This false portrayal of the current situation is the exact opposite of truth, but it is widely believed because the journalists who did so much to re-elect Obama (and to defend Reid’s Democrat Senate majority) have continued to act as partisan propagandists. Often, the prevailing prejudices of the press corps are described as “liberal bias”; explaining this as a matter of ideology or philosophy, however, is unnecessary to describing the basic political allegiance of news industry personnel to the Democrat Party. Every study of the voting habits of American journalists shows an overwhelming preference for Democrats. The Media Research Center has compiled an exhaustive collection of such studies, some showing that reporters are eight times more likely to vote for Democrats than for Republicans.
This disproportionate partisan tilt has significant consequences, including the bizarre unreality of how conflicts between Republicans and Democrats are portrayed. Democrats, having come to expect favorable treatment from the media, are permitted to act and speak irresponsibly, knowing that they will be depicted as heroes in the media narrative, while their Republican opponents will be depicted as villains, merely for being Republicans.(The only “good” Republicans, of course, are those who echo liberal denunciations of such conservatives as Cruz.) It is only within this warped funhouse-mirror view that anyone could believe the things Democrats have been saying in the current crisis, much less take them seriously.
“We’re not going to bow to tea party anarchists who deny the mere fact that Obamacare is the law,” Harry Reid said last week.“We will not bow to tea party anarchists who refuse to accept that the Supreme Court ruled that Obamacare is constitutional…. Obamacare is the law of the land and will remain the law of the land as long as Barack Obama is president of the United States and as long as I’m Senate majority leader.” Never mind, of course, exactly how Obamacare became law. Never mind Nancy Pelosi’s memorable claim that Congress would “have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it.” Never mind the 34 House Democrats who joined Republicans in voting against it. Never mind how, in the mid-term elections eight months after that vote, Republicans won a historic landslide, gaining 63 House seats to obtain a majority even larger than Newt Gingrich won in 1994.
The history of Obamacare must be forgotten in order to suppose that Reid’s defense of this controversial and unpopular measure is more reasonable than the opposition of the Republican conservatives whom Reid labeled “tea party anarchists.” Of course, when it comes to real anarchists like the deranged mob that emerged two years ago as the “Occupy Wall Street” movement, Democrats were far more understanding. The media didn’t point that out to Harry Reid, however, nor did anyone in the press corps seem to note the irony when White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer compared Republicans to terrorists:“What we’re not for is negotiating with people with a bomb strapped to their chest.” You can insert your favorite Bill Ayers joke here, but the president’s avowed refusal to negotiate with his domestic opponents could also be contrasted with his foreign policy, as I remarked on Twitter:“Maybe if the Republican Party would change its name to ‘Iran,’ Obama would be willing to negotiate with them.”http://spectator.org/arc hives/2013/09/30/extremely-ext reme-extremists

You're living in a fantasy world Carol.
Before Mr. Reagan came to power our National debt was in the billions of dollars. After he left, it was in trillions of dollars. In the eighties the Republicans were boasting about Reagan’s "longest economical expansion". In reality that was the longest period of borrowing and the highest national debt accumulation in the history of our Nation! The Reagan’s “expansion” ended in 1987 with the record numbers of bankruptcies, foreclosures and unemployment. Some expansion! Where did the trillions go? The answer is - to the same 5% of wealthiest Americans, whom the Republicans have always been working for. Under Reagan, they all tripled and quadrupled their fortunes, while the rest of our Country got deeper in debt and recession.
Before Mr. Reagan came to power, the Middle Class America was still strong. After twelve years of Reaganomics the Middle Class was in ruins. Reagan's way of "Union busting" and generous Corporate perks had led to the total domination of Corporate bosses over the “salary caps” for the workers, over the job cuts and moving the jobs abroad. And so, the Middle Class had fallen closer to the poverty line and the Poor had turned into homeless. When the Middle Class goes down, so does the consumer spending. With low consumer spending our Economy hit the skids. That’s how the Reaganomics had thrown entire Country into a deep recession, while some excessive fortunes had “trickled up” into the pockets of the richest Americans with Republican blessings.
Before Mr. Reagan came to power, small businesses, small shopkeepers and small farmers were doing alright. But Republican deregulations had given unfair advantages and tax breaks to the big businesses and to the large farms at the expense of the small ones. That's why by 1987 the small businesses’ and farms' bankruptcies and the unemployment hit the record levels.
Before Mr. Reagan came to power, the Wall Street had been strictly regulated and watched over. After the Republican deregulations, the crooks like Ivan Boskey, Mike Milken and others were given a free hand to swindle and to pillage. Millions of small investors had lost billions of dollars in the "Junk Bonds" frauds and insider trading, while a few over-night billionaires were born at the expense of many ruined American families.
Ronald Reagan might have been a boon for the upper 5% but a disaster for the middle class and the poor.
The crash of the housing market came from nonexistent oversight of mortgage brokers like Countrywide and Indy Mac. It was Republicans who were in charge of both houses of Congress when the housing bubble started so to blame Democrats is totally ridiculous.
Hey idiot!

Of course the debt went up during Reagan. He spent like crazy on the military.

"By the time Reagan stepped down from the helm, he had expanded the U.S. military budget to a staggering 43% increase over the total expenditure during the height of the Vietnam war."

Guess what Reichtard?

- The Soviet Union fell.
- Eastern Europe was freed
- The Berlin Wall fell.

Then we didn't need to spend as much after that so Clinton could cut military spending.

Bush Jr. had to deal with 911, the recession and the wars the Democrats voted for.

When your Jimmy-Bob Carter was president:

- our country was a joke like it is now,
- inflation was insane,
- mortgage rates hit 20% and;
- there were gas lines/rationing, you frikkin moron.

Read this below for a rational explanation of the debt and the presidents, if you can understand it dummy. We all know you socialists just prefer rhetoric & hyperbole.

Extremely Extreme Extremists

By Robert Stacy McCain on 9.30.13 @ 6:11AM

Liberal “shutdown” rhetoric ignores the irresponsibility of Democrats.

Democrats and their media allies have spent the past week labeling Republicans “anarchists,”“fanatics,”“radic als,” and “terrorists” who are wholly to blame for the situation that we are told will soon lead to a government shutdown. And if all you know about this situation is what you get from the media, you might actually believe that this is a crisis created by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and his fellow conservatives who sought to use the vote on a short-term spending bill as a means of preventing implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), otherwise known as Obamacare.

Here’s a simple question: Why are we currently funding the federal government through a series of short-term measures known as “continuing resolutions”?

The answer is that the budgeting process has completely broken down in recent years, and the two men most responsible for that breakdown are President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. For three consecutive years — 2010, 2011, and 2012 — the Democrat-controlled Senate did not pass a budget bill because Reid knew that it would be a political liability to do so. Passing a budget that detailed the Democrats’ plans for spending and revenue as official policy would have exposed the “something for nothing” swindle that Reid and his colleagues are perpetrating on the American people. Republican challengers campaigning against Democrat senators could have cited their votes for the budget bill, saying that the incumbent voted for this, that, or the other unpopular component of the measure.

Reid and the Democrats knew this. They knew very well that the federal deficit was spiraling out of control, that there was not enough tax revenue to pay the mushrooming cost of entitlement programs (Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, unemployment, et cetera), and certainly there wasn’t enough revenue to pay for all the boondoggles and giveaways the Democrats voted for in the name of “stimulus.” Adding to this, there was not enough revenue to pay the cost of Obamacare, which Democrats rammed through Congress in March 2010 on a party-line vote. Passing an actual budget would have made clear the unsustainable fiscal nightmare into which Democrat policies have plunged the nation during the Obama Age, and so Harry Reid simply didn’t pass a budget for three years.http://spectator.org/arc hives/2013/09/30/extremely-ext reme-extremists

Apparently the democratic processes by which Americans make choices and govern themselves are not acceptable to extremists in the House of Representatives who seek to halt government or have their way. They would have Americans see their actions as a patriotic and high-minded defense of liberty. As the shutdown loomed, several GOP congressmen and analysts took to the airwaves to trivialize the significance of the House vote.[...]

In seeking to trump a lawful vote of both houses of Congress, a Supreme Court ruling and a reaffirming national presidential election, they tread on extremist ground. Their hubris is radical and nothing in modern American history provides a fair counterpart.

"The White House and the Department of the Interior rejected a request from Rep. Steven Palazzo’s office to have World War II veterans visit the World War II memorial in Washington, the Mississippi Republican told The Daily Caller Tuesday.

Palazzo helped the veterans commit an act of civil disobedience against the Park Service Tuesday, when the heroes stormed through barricades around the closed memorial."
