I just don't understand the entire 'shut down government' meme being perpetrated by both sides.

The House simply needs to craft a budget that funds the government but leaves off any monetary stipends for Obamacare.

Then send it to the Senate for ratification.

If it fails, then it is the Senate (aka, Democrats) who have failed (yet again) to fund the government.

so was slavery at one time. so was the prohibition of women voting.

all laws are not good laws. ACA is terrible legislation, probably the worst in our history
worst in our history? and you wonder why you can't win the white house

Yes or no and what do you believe the ramifications would be? And I don't mean lost elections. Individual political seats are not more important than the health (not medical) of our nation as a whole.
The dems screamed the sky was falling when the thought of sequester wasmentioned. Reality showed different.

Im sick of the gop being forced to "go along" just to keep the gun away from their heads. This is a bipartisan mess overall and im sick of the dems getting a free pass. If the govt shuts down it will be because BOTH sides refused to compromise. BOTH

Congress is there to fulfill the will of the people not ****ING KING OBAMA.

I say **** these stupid games and play hardball. Sadly I don't think Boehner has the spine required to do what's right.
In order to preserve the integrity of the nation and the economy, government spending MUST be capped. And if holding the debt ceiling to the current level means some non essential functions of government will be temporarily shut down, so be it.
Obama believes that government and not the private sector is the basis of economic activity. That is incorrect. The very reason why our economy has not grown at greater than 1.7% in any one quarter since 2009 IS because of government spending and borrowing. Of course the threat of new taxes and the inevitable increase in expenses suffered by the private sector have smothered economic growth.
Boehner is a go along to get along operator. I objected to his nomination as Speaker and I think he has done a terrible job.
Boehner is part of that old guard RINO contingent that has taken the GOP and made it second rate.

That is a brilliant plan! I am sure it will work!

It isn't a plan.

It is called 'performing your Constitutionally required duties'.

But to semi-answer your partisan BS....yes it will work.

The House does that very thing every year and Harry Reid ignores it and blames the Republicans in the Senate. And gets away with it every year.

The GOP has trotted out all the arguments they used against Social Security. I think the Republicans used the commie thing more with SS and less of the break-the-bank fear. The bank was already broken in 1936 and people sort of remembered banks being broken because when they went to draw out their old-age savings the banks and money were gone.
The GOP can't stand to see average people as well-off as they are.
I truly believe that. And so many Republicans are average people. But they see themselves as "millionaires without funds".

Should the gop be willing to shut down nonessential govt functions to stop obamacare?
False choice. Congress is capable of fully funding government except for Obamacare. No shut down would be necessary. Of course, the Senate will likely add Obamacare funding back in and send it back to the House. Nothing says the House can't remove Obamacare funding again and sent it right back.

Point is, no govt functions need stop to de-fund Obamacare. It would be on Reid and the Dem controlled Senate if they refused to vote for a funding bill that kept the government going ex Obamacare. Why the establishment RINOs think they'd be blamed is beyond me. As you say, they have no backbone!
Actually no, our federal government does not have that capability.
If people really paid attention. Really did some poking around to see just exactly the raw waste of taxpayer resources, they'd be aghast.
Just the amount spent on research on the most nonsensical things. Such as research grants to determine the libido of Japanese Quails while under the influence of cocaine.
All the pork spending. All the little bit here and little bit there. The money our government gives to these so called professors to write papers and the research grants offered for political favors. The money given to private business so they DON'T make or do stuff.

defund it all... eliminate until there is no deficit
THIS^^ And who cares is the moochers that can work and won't don't get their check. It's time to make them grow a set and join the real world.
