How many counter offers have the republicans made??? The dems won't even come to the table, and they are blaming the Republicans for holding the country hostage??? What a joke... I say shut it down, the government hasn't helped the people who actually work for a living in years... We have been doing it without them anyway. The only thing that should be paid is our Veteran benefits and our service men and women. I think the president can do without greens fees for a few weeks especially when most of our country has had to cut milk from their budget.

Exactly what was it that the Democrats in the Senate stripped out of the house bill? Why not tell everyone exactly what was "stripped" out before sending it back to the House?
I'll tell you what was stripped out of that bill. It was a clause requiring Senators, Congressmen, the President and all their staffers to get the same Obamacare health insurance that they are mandating Taxpayers to get.
Something is wrong with a program that the Democrats in the House and Senate and the President all pushed into law when those same Democrats now refuse to use and have exempted themselves and their staffers from participating in.
Why can't the Democrats just sign up for Obamacare and get the CR passed? Why blame Republicans? They passed a CR in the house. It's the Democrat controlled senate that refused to pass it.
What is so bad about Obamacare that even Obama doesn't want it for him and his family? Someone should ask Harry Reed the same question.

They don't want it either and the blame will be put on the dems during the election cycle in 2014.. The pubs in the house outsmarted the dems in the senate.. ;-)

They will reject the truth and chase after myths.
- 2 Timothy 4:4

Not all of America's founding fathers were believers, but even those who were not committed followers of Jesus Christ had, at the very least, a great respect for the Bible. That is why they built our judicial system-and really the government as a whole-on it.

But things have changed, haven't they? We have gotten away from this. There are many people now who question the idea of absolute truth. They will say, "My version of the truth is as valid as your truth. How dare you impose your version on me?" (which basically means holding an opinion that is contrary to theirs).

A sign of the end times will be people turning from the truth: "For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear. They will reject the truth and chase after myths" (2 Timothy 4:3–4).

I haven't lied about anything.

Curb your temper and clean up your language. Your friends are simply horrified over profanity you know.

Oh, and get back on topic. You and GR are creating discord as usual with all your personal attacks, insults and lies.

In New York (I believe) it is illegal to record a face to face conversation without the consent of both parties.

Obama Says 'One Faction' Can't Shut Down Government

By MARY BRUCE (@marykbruce) Sep 30, 2013, 5:15 PM

With a government shutdown just hours away, President Obama warned lawmakers today that a shutdown would "throw a wrench into the gears of our economy" and slammed House Republicans for failing to fulfill their basic responsibilities.

"The idea of putting the American people's hard-earned progress at risk is the height of irresponsibility, and it doesn't have to happen," the president said in a hastily announced appearance in the White House briefing room. "Let me repeat this. It does not have to happen."

House Republicans continue to insist they will not agree to a budget bill to keep the government operating without measures to delay or defund the president's signature health care legislation, something the Senate has repeatedly rejected.

"One faction of one party in one house of Congress in one branch of government doesn't get to shut down the entire government just to refight the results of an election," the president said of House Republicans. "You don't get to extract a ransom for doing your job, for doing what you're supposed to be doing anyway, or just because there's a law there that you don't like."

"I respect the fact that the other party is not supposed to agree with me a hundred percent of the time, just like I don't agree with them. But they do also expect that we don't bring the entire government to a halt or the entire economy to a halt just because of those differences," he said.

With the clock ticking, the president warned of the real-life economic impacts of a shutdown, cautioning that "office buildings would close. Paychecks would be delayed. Vital services that seniors and veterans, women and children, businesses and our economy depend on would be hamstrung."

Workers who would be furloughed would be "hurt greatly," Obama said. "And as a consequence all of us will be hurt greatly, should Congress choose to shut the people's government down."

"All of this is entirely preventable if the House chooses to do what the Senate has already done, and that's the simple act of funding our government without making extraneous and controversial demands in the process, the same way other Congresses have for more than 200 years," he said.

Moments later, the president met with his Cabinet at the White House to brace for the shutdown, which at this stage seems all but certain.

"We're going to be discussing the impacts, potentially, of a shutdown and how all these various agencies will be managing to make sure the core, essential functions continue, but also obviously to help try to manage what's going to be a very difficult potential situation for the employees of all these agencies who are doing outstanding and very difficult work all across the country," the president told reporters in the Cabinet Room.

"I appreciate all the members of the Cabinet who are here. They've been doing a lot of planning. I wish they were spending more time focusing on how to grow jobs and the economy as opposed to having to spend time figuring out how they manage a government shutdown," he added.

The president's comments came shortly before the House was expected to vote on yet another funding bill that contains a one-year delay of Obamacare's individual mandate and cancels subsidies for certain federal employees. The Senate is expected, once again, to reject any budget bill that guts Obamacare.

$189 per month is 2268 a year. Add that the the taxes you evade by failing to report your hundred dollar hump humps and you are nothing more than a leach on society. I bet you can't wait until January 1st so you can use your free Obamacare to get a doctor to look at those bumps in your genitalia and prescribe some antibiotics. Better get tested for HIV/AIDS while you are at it. Lots of that going around up there in the pacific northwest. It's all those McFaggarts you have living there that's spreading that chit around.
LOL.. So true so true.. I think you are right if you have some spare cash invest in the drug companies.. That sounds like a sure bet come next year..

GOP Myth Busted,‘Since the ACA passed, 90 percent of job growth has been full-time.’
https://www.politicususa.com/2013/09/30/repub...
A rather desperate House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) tweeted Sunday “90% of the jobs created have been part-time. Obamacare creates a part-time economy, part-time opportunity, and a part-time America.”

This, of course, is not true. In fact, the opposite is true.(Sadly, this is becoming the norm – if a Republican is talking, your odds of finding truth are best if you invert claim and work from there.)

One bill at a time.. You and most dems here on this thread agree with employer enforcement.. Right?? Or have I read all of you wrong?? Do you support no match letters?? E-verify?? ICE raids?? Speeding up the deportation when caught commiting a crime (after they serve their time in jail)?? Now I ask you what crime are you willing to forgo??
