Keep it shut and save the money. Most Americians have not been affected by the shut down. If there was no media I doubt many would have notice any change.

I see two reasonable, responsible options, pass the spending Bills the house keeps sending to the senate Harry Reid won’t take up, or put a one year moratorium on the individual mandate just like the president granted his significant contributors. It’s very simple, equality, justice, or waste and loss. This all rests with harry Reid and the president at this point.

"I see two reasonable, responsible options, pass the spending Bills the house keeps sending to the senate Harry Reid won’t take up, or put a one year moratorium on the individual mandate just like the president granted his significant contributors." .................. Indeed. The precedent has already been set with Obama granting moratoriums on several of the law's provisions, so the debate about another one or two being held off for a year should not be an insurmountable obstacle--a mere discussion of amount rather than kind, as it were. Unfortunately Arrogance is a tough opponent for reason, and Obama has arrogance in abundance.
