Sure. but that above is all make believe. Obama from the start made the "sit in the back seat"
Nope, GOP was very and still is proud to say they will NOT ever work with Obama. Part of their bigot root and kowtow to the tea bag Christian Taliban racists.

If the government shutdown, shouldn't we get a refund on some of our tax money?

The simpletons followed the Obama. The ACA is neither affordable nor sustainable. It's also unethical. A bunch of godless overripe tomato heads on both sides.

The shutdown is necessary.And yes I work for the VA.I'm more worried about raising the debt ceiling which has been climbing higher and higher since Obama took power.Doesn't anyone care that
the children and yet to be born are going to suffer because of the rising debt?They will be the ones to suffer paying it down.We are going to become third world country in less than ten years if the debt rises any nore.

I'm not a Teabagger. I don't watch Fox News. I don't know who is who on either side. Ronald Reagan hasn't been president in 30 years.

You are misinformed.
The debt ceiling is not a bargaining tool for politics.
Try not paying your mortgage for a few months then try and get a car loan. Your credit is fkd. Like our country will be if we don't pay our bills.
The debt ceiling was raised by Ronald Reagan 18 times.
You tea baggers are fkn up our country.
Quit watching Fox News.
you don't even have a job.

Raising the debt ceiling appropiates funds to pay already existing bills which the Congess has already approved, it is already existing debt, which is why not paying, or defaulting by not appropiating funds, is so damaging to our nation.

You speak of being a third world country....not paying our bills will put us there very quickly.

Think if you purchase a car....the bank lends you money to purchse it from the dealer.....the bank lends you that money in good faith under the understanding that you will re-pay said monies....when you decide to not pay and reneg on that loan the car is repossesed and yor credit rating becomed trash.

Same thing on a larger scale.

Now he's done it. 5 soldiers killed in Afghanistan lastweek were supposed to be flown home and their families flown in to meet up with the caskets and then supposed to be buried. The families are supposed to get their $100,000 life insurance. Obama cancelled it. The whole thing cancelled. This latest snit is gonna piss off all the militay and the veterans and everyone who has family in the military. keeping in mind the military is fully funded during this shut down.
Yesterday he made everyone at Lake Meed move out of their houses because they built on Federal leased land.
Wondering what hes gonna do tomorrow.

What happened to all the jobs this president was going to create? What about the roads he was going to build? What has he really done?
He's totally disappointed me.

Let's face it: we've all been irresponsible republicans before. I've heard they've hired a bankruptcy lawyer they saw on TV. Look at Boner- there's been some drinking involved...they used to be a proud party...

We can't raise the debt ceiling without lowering spending. Don't you see? That's like if you got paid once a year say April 15th and you got a mortgage and 2 car loans and a bunch a credit cards. Lets say by July you done spent all that money you got in April but you got obligations so you pay the bills with credit cards. Then in October all your credit cards is maxed out. So you get some more credit cards to pay your bills with. Then next April when you get paid you got even more debt so you runs outta money sooner and start borrowing again. By October you need them to raise the limit on your credit cards so as you can pay fro the stuff you already obligated for. Sometime the answer is gonna be no. Your credit raiting drops if you overextended. That's why the goverment credit raiting dropped last time they raised the debt ceiling. You gots to learn to live within your means or you go bankrupt. Why don't the government do that? Spending cuts need to be part of raising the debt ceiling or we go bankrupt either way. We got to budget why don't the governemnt got to budget?

I'm sure you are a disappointment to your mother, too. A GREAT RECESSION is what happened, brought on by the crash of financial markets that began in late 2007. And, republican obstructionism has slowed down what otherwise is a recovery. On principle. Ya can't spend principal, can't eat principle and ya sure can't get hired by principle. Does that help?
