Your fault! No shutdown end; Dems, GOP trade blame

WASHINGTON (AP) - First slowed, then stalled by political gridlock, the vast machinery of government clanged into partial shutdown mode today and President Barack Obama warned the longer it goes “the more families will be hurt.” Republicans said it was his fault, not theirs, and embarked on a strategy - opposed by Democrats - of voting on bills to reopen individual agencies or programs.

You're both a wee bit out of touch. First of all if the House who after failing to overturn Obamacare with 43 votes, and a supreme court challenge would just pass the budget instead of trying to add obamacare to it the government wouldnt have shut down. As long as they keep inserting defund obamacare B.S. the Senate will send it right back to the House with it removed.

Secondly Congress' approval rating is 10% the lowest its ever been. Obama's approval rating is hovering around 45%. So it would appear Congress is getting beaten like a rented mule.

Suggest removal:

Here is the solution for anyone who knows anything about negotiating: Instead of sending a clean "CR" back to the House, the Senate needs to attach a couple bills of their own, to get the ball rolling. Attach an assault weapons ban, strict background checks for gun purchases, funding for Planned Parenthood and remove the tax exemption for religious organizations. All things that will get the white-trash on the right to spray their "Ko-colas" on the trailer wall. Then, sit down to a conference committee.
