Obama blames...... Par for the course. This shutdown is about cutting spending because some people understand that if we continue down this path of spending more than we take in, we will go bankrupt. What is so ironis is that in 2007 Obama himself addressed the deficit. He called the 10 trillion dollar deficit unpatriotic and he vowed to cut the deficit in half in his first term. Now, we are at 17 trillion, and we have increased government employees. Blame whomever you'd like Obama, it's all you do. I especially like when you blame others for the poor results from your own policies. Hopefully, America wises up, but I persoanlly feel we are too far gone because of liberal ideology.

" This shutdown is about cutting spending "....................WRONG. The shutdown is about a group of extremists trying to de-fund a law they don't like. A law that has passed both houses of Congress, been signed by the President and upheld by the Supreme Court. You want to change the law? Do it by the means the Constitution lays out.
