So Obama is going to sit in his room and pout because mommy and daddy won't give him another credit card to max out.

All this because the Republicans do not like ACA. They think they are invincible.

Congratulations need to go out to the party of fiscal responsibility: you have now succeeded in costing the tax payers 1.4 billion dollars with your latest manufactured crisis!! *************** The cost of the shutdown is 300 million a day, the cost to run the government is 10 Billion dollars a day. so if government was open it would cost $46 billion dollars. Wow, a savings of 43.6 billion.

"Boehner doesn't want a vote because he knows that it would pass."............Exactly! CNN last night actually named 17 House republicans who've stated openly they'll vote for a clean CR and another 7 who've privately said they would. Boehner's lost this ridiculous insurrection and caused such a backlash that the GOP may very well lose the House in 2014.

"All this because the Republicans do not like ACA.--------Just like 70% of americans."...............i strongly urge you to keep up with current polling rather than year-old polls. If you did, you'd quickly discover that only 37% are opposed to ACA as the remaining part of the "opposed" category is from Americans who do not think it went nearly FAR enough. A poll this week shows that even 57% of young adults support it. Why do you insist on using last years figure??? Oh - wait - I know the answer to this: to support your unsupportable case against this law. Try again?
