The exact size of the cost-of-living adjustment, or COLA, won't be known until the Labor Department releases the inflation report for September. That was supposed to happen Wednesday, but the report was delayed indefinitely because of the partial government shutdown.

The Collins measure included a delay of a provision of ACA.
Did not the President and Harry Reid before hand say there would be no delay of ACA?
How many times does the same message have to be recounted before the Republicans hear what the People's representative are saying to them?
It's as if the entire Republican Party is fatally stuck on stupid.
The Republicans are proving to the Nation they are not the Party of Ideas.
Well, you have to understand, Obama said they couldn't stop it, but nothing of him stopping portions of it four times.........a bit hypocritical isn't it. Only stopping the parts that are going to hurt you with donors and at the polls. Obama just isn't up to the taller level of W that did what he thought was right and to hell with the polls.

The Department of the Interior late last week agreed to let states use their own money to reopen some national parks. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel also determined football and other sports could continue at service academies through October.

Following outrage from military groups, the Pentagon contracted with a charity to provide death benefits to the families of fallen soldiers, before President Obama abruptly signed legislation to do just that.

Earlier, the Pentagon also announced most of its 350,000 furloughed civilian military personnel would return to their jobs. And CIA Director John Brennan said he would begin bringing back employees deemed necessary to the agency's core missions.

"It appears they are truly just making this up as they go along, as they have put out one inconsistent policy after another," House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Doc Hastings, R-Wash., said in a statement, accusing the administration of playing "political games."

Charges that the Obama administration exaggerated the cutbacks from the outset were amplified Sunday when hundreds of vets marched in Washington to protest the closure of popular war memorials, including open-air sites.

Obama is intent on destroying America economically.
He was not satisfied with the credit downgrade; he is focused on complete disruption, if not elimination of American credit. If default occurs, you can thank Obama and no one else because Obama insists on being given the powers of a king. Thank goodness, the people's representatives are holding fast on this point, while offering proposals to avoid economic chaos. Unfortunately, the Senate Damnocrats refuse everything presented to them, Obama lap dogs as they are.
pretty clueless arent you....Funny how the S&P's report on that downgrade point specifically to republicans yet here the clueless people are still blaming Obama cause that is what fox news told them.

The House is composed of the people's representatives and only the people's representatives. Over 40 times, they've demanded to be heard and each time the BUSINESS representatives in the Senate ignore them. Even a very recent request to be given the same consideration as big business , I.e., a one year delay of the Obamacare tax, was denied. The Damnocrats would rather send America into credit default than delay a tax to the people in the same way king Obama unilaterally delayed for Business.

Obamacare passed, the repubs can try to defund it or let the economy go default. You can try to pass the blame off to the dems but i wouldnt negotiate under those terms either. The only bargaining chips the repubs currently have is the debt ceiling and a gov shutdown. Both will be very costly for repubs if they chose to use them as you are now seeing with the shutdown.

Once you act like adults then maybe there will be negotiations but i would no way enable the childish actions of the repub by negotiating over a law that passed years ago. If that is where the repubs want to draw the line, be my guest but just be prepared to handle the fallout as well cause you dont get to have it both ways.

Bullshit, scumbag...
The Left is in full spin mode to hide the downgrade's obvious cause — the "massive two-year binge of deficit spending embarked on by President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid. During the debt-ceiling debate, instead of dealing honestly with the debt problem. Peelsosi and crew spent like drunken sailors from 08-2010 when the American people put a plug in it....LMAO. The demorats casued the downgrade, caused the recession, caused Behgazi (oh the republicans cut funding)...how funny was that.
No responsibility for anything...the demorats are little snot nose children playing with the taxpayers money.
Did you even read the S&P report. You know they specifically mention you repubs in it....

From the S&P Report

"Compared with previous projections, our revised base case scenario now assumes that the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts, due to expire by the end of 2012, remain in place. We have changed our assumption on this because the majority of Republicans in Congress continue to resist any measure that would raise revenues, a position we believe Congress reinforced by passing the act. "

Feel free to look it up yourself. But again, try to continue to pass the blame for your party's own actions.

I would like to remind you that both times, republicans have caved and offered Obama what he wanted, just as today, they offered him his clean bill and he moved the goal post to include stopping the sequester, which was his idea.

Obama is a damn Muslim!

Many in the U.S. congress have turned to Islam.

Is it any wonder that Amerika is a haven for terrorists.

virtually every Muslim in Amerika is supported by tax payers.
In other words, they receive huge welfare benefits.

Yup!
Obamacare passed with not a single vote from the Republicans,
Then, the Democrats refused to listen to the people's representatives in the House over 40 times
Then, Obama, king Damnocrate, unilaterally delayed the tax in business, after giving exemptions to over 1200 Big Businesses.
That wasn't enough, though. The Democrats refused to give the same delay in enforcing the tax to the working class.
The end result is that the Government took over 16% of the economy, joining with business to subjugate the working folk. Can you spell Fascist?
