    Obama will be responsible for shutting down the government if he won't compromise....

    he's having quite a little hissy fit about it...

    Government will not shut down,

    Obama will tell the TeaP members in the House, "fuck you."

    The Senate minority and majority leadership will tell the TeaP members in the House, "fuck you."

    Boehner will tell the TeaP members in the House, "fuck you."

    Americans overwhelmingly will tell the TeaP members in the House, "fuck you."

    So a new CR will be sent with Obamacare funded, and the government will not shut down at all.

    if Obama shuts down the government i hope that the Republicans don't give in....

    we've had shutdowns before.....our country has had many shutdowns in its history.....in 1995 under Clinton we had one for 21 days.....and the world didn't fall apart.....

    what will happen if we have a shut down.....?

    basically non-essential government workers will be furloughed.....essential ones will still be working....most non-government workers won't even notice...

    social security and medicare recipients will still get paid.

    some non-essential services will be put on hold...

    in fact....a shutdown could help slow the spending and help the debt problem....imagine an almost empty White House....:)

    A deal will be cut the last day at the last hour to save us all as always.

    It's kind of like a movie with a script, with all playing their parts.

    There needs to be an award for BEST ACTOR AND ACTRESS at the end so they can get a little trophy or something.

    Why? Because the Rhino's in the GOP have SOLD OUT THEIR BASE.................They refuse to take the stand irregardless, as was done in 1996.

    Back in 1996, the Gov't Shut down for 21 days, Clinton caved on most issues and didn't pass Jack Squat for the rest of his term, but claimed credit for the positives the GOP fought him over.

    The country didn't implode, by shutting down. We are still here, and another shut down by THE POWER OF THE PURSE is needed. No more games and no more taking Obama at his word, as he's a Lying Sack.

    ...and the Republicans were blamed for it, just like they will be blamed for this one if it happens. Which it won't.

    House republicans will be solely responsible for any government shutdown.

    The American people correctly perceive House republicans as extreme and unreasonable, more interested in partisan politics than responsible governance.

    Ummm, actually, bud, he got quite a bit after that.

    Go check the elections in 1996: tell us who won the presidency and who lost seats in Congress.

    You rinos on the far right will not be allowed to sell out the Republican mainstream.

    "Balls" said Queen Boehner "if I had two I'd be King!" He won't do anything more, he'll cave, they'll cave, Obuttlecare will stand. Too bad . . . . for us.

    Obama has a lot of fucking nerve saying that Rs aren't focused on the middle class ... like he is? Oh please, give me a break. Obamacare is trampling it, everyday more and more and more companies getting rid of health insurance they've provided for their employees or flat out firing people. How's that working out for the middle class?
