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.

If Obama would cooperate, this would not happen.

Suggest removal:

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:

So far, the "sequester" has not been the dire disaster that Obama predicted. It has reduced government spending.

The current "shut down" may also prove to be a money saver. Too bad it won't be permanent in its present form.
