Outlaw shutdowns? That might make Congress worse
There is a way to prevent government shutdowns. A change in U.S. law would keep federal workers on the job and ensure that treasured sites like the Statue of Liberty and Yosemite stay open during a budget fight, instead of becoming political pawns.

First DECREASE the size of government.
Then there would be no need to shut it down.

how do you know it is bad if it hasn't been fully enacted yet?
you really are too stupid to breathe on your own , aren't you?
have you figured out Cruz cannot be Speaker of the House yet, as he is a Senator? that was one of the stupidest posts on topix ever...and that is saying one hell of a lot!!!
obviously, you are not smart enough to really understand anything discussed on these pages, why not give up and go home...

Tens of millions of people are losing their health insurance right now because of CACA. The President said he was sure it wouldn't happen, even two years after he was informed it would. This is typical modern Democrat behavior.
The Democrats partially shut down the government weeks ago because they objected to delaying the implementation of CACA. Now, Democrats are calling for delaying the implementation of CACA. This is typical modern Democrat behavior.
Every disaster that is currently happening concerning CACA (people losing insurance, disaster of governmental implementation, etc.) was predicted exactly by Conservatives and the Tea Party Republicans. This is typical modern Conservative behavior.

Let's see now.
Because of Obamacare, 80% of people who purchased their own health insurance are losing their coverage, even after Obama repeatedly promised they'd be able to keep their insurance.
Because of Obamacare, people are losing their jobs and, many of those who are able to keep their jobs are having their hours and income cut.
Because of Obamacare, the cost of health insurance is increasing, as is the cost of health care, even though Obama insisted that the costs would go down.
The government had years to implement the web site to allow people to sign up, but it doesn't work. Still, the Damnocrats won't allow a delay of the mandate for individuals even afte Obama unilaterally extended one to Big Business.
What in the world makes you think that things will improve for the people?
