The House controls the money. Without which everything shuts down.
Obama got no money. Bonehead man got the money.
You tell Bonehead to open the cemeteries. I'm sure he'll listen to you.
Once again-idiot-this is a partial shut down.

The only agencies and services that are closed are those the admin's OMB has closed as non-essential

The OMB calls the Amber Alert and cancer treatment to kids as non-essential-heartless creeps.

No other POTUS has closed commentaries during these shut downs showing how over the top your spiteful POTUS is.

The Bonehead is OBAMA-your guy!

The Amber Alert website was closed by Obama's OMB as "non-essential" but The US Bureau of Engraving's website is apparently "essential" and is open.

Tell us again how Obama isn't being mean spirited.
Yeah

You aren't very bright are you?
This is a partial shut-down, fool. The OMB, which operates under the admin, is deciding what is essential are not.
Fund the NIH! Do you think Obama's spite is worth a child not getting his cancer treatment? You are as repulsive as he is if you think the end is justified by going to this extreme.
Seeing as you're lame enough to believe that these are in any way Obama's decisions, you shouldn't be talking about who's bright.

The heads of the various agencies determine how the limitations in funding must be handled. You foolishly blame Obama.

But, just like in the IRS stupidity, you Teabags overreach and pretend it was all done in the White House. That failed miserably, making Issa look the fool.

You're basically doing the same thing here.

It won't work. Most people aren't as foolish or hateful as you are.

Do you agree that Catholic priests should be arrested if they volunteer to hold Mass on base?

Obama's America where Vets and Priests are arrested and illegal aliens let out of prison.

why would Senator Reid want to help one child with cancer or one kidnapped child?

Reid earlier this week asked why would he want to help one child when healthy SEI workers are on furloughs(they will get paid anyway).

Dems show their true colors.

Members of congress do not qualify for "subsidies". However, they are entitled to continue receiving the employee contribution to their healthcare like any other Federal employee. Even the Republican who attached the amendment to the ACA said he never intended for them to lose that benefit. What isn't fair is that, unlike everyone else, they are being FORCED to buy from the exchange. Besides, the House was never going to pass a bill based on that alone. Where do you get such bull?
The taxpayer-funded federal health-insurance subsidies dispensed to those on Congress’s payroll — which now range from $5,000 to $11,000 a year — would have had ended had not Obama used the quiet of the August recess to personally order the Office of Personnel Management, which supervises federal employment issues, to interpret the law so as to retain the generous congressional benefits.

http://www.nationalreview.com/article/358550/...

A Senate source said polling data shows there is strong public support for requiring congressional members and staff to receive the same treatment under the healthcare law as all other citizens.

Reid said no way, Hosea.

Barack Obama has DOJ shut down the Amber Alert system...So, we can add dead kids to the lengths he's willing to go in his shutdown game.
"The sky is falling, The sky is falling!!! You people really need help. Just because the government website is shut down doesn't mean that Amber Alerts won't be issued. Each state has its own guidelines for issuing Amber Alerts.

Local law enforcement agencies issue the alerts and the FBI website is still operational (not exactly a non-essential part of government). The child's name and other critical data elements, including the Child Abduction flag, can still be entered into the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) system.

Why should Republicans have to do what Obama and Reid want? This bill was passed by a strict partisan Democrat vote without one Republican on board. The majority were against it. If you've forgotten.
Republicans have asked for two concessions.
Obama and Reid are the ones refusing to compromise on even one of them.
so cons voted against it by partisan vote?

That pretty much says it all...

Once again, slow one.

The OMB, under the control of the admin, is the one ordering the agencies to close services. They are making the decisions.

No one can close anything without the OMB's approval.

Nobody is being forced to buy insurance from the exchange EXCEPT members of congress and their staff. EVERYONE else is free to buy from ANY insurance company of their choice. The exchange is suppose to be an available option for those with low income and preexisting condition.

Tick tock, tick tock.
