    I see Obama isn’t present or doing anything as usual…

    And Dems only have to reach out 24,901 miles for Repubs to meet them “halfway.”

    He’s out on another taxpayer funded vacation except for the occasional smear campaign press conference.

    The shutdown IS their compromise.

    The Tea Party you mean? Last time I checked, they were fine with shutting down everything except the Washington Monument.

    The Tea Party had no Plan B in case their faction failed to derail the ACA. They have no idea what they want, so they are sitting around, waiting for the Democrats to make an offer. It’s not like they think the government provides many essential functions, anyway… they are zombie reps.

    What Mr. Gorrell has failed to show are the lobbyists and superpac representatives who are holding the checks to which the above party symbols are reaching. Nor do we see the pile of humanity representing the American working class and businessmen who want to invest in their nation upon whose backs these two self serving animals are standing.

    @lichtentunes

    My point exactly, Lichtentunes (lightmusic?)
    Just as companies who exported jobs overseas and import those products to sell in the USA, Microsoft should have to pay an increased import tax on the products installed on our computers and other technical devices. Money is a finite quantity and for them to hide it and prevent it from benefiting the American people whose tax dollars given to business and colleges went into the creation of computers, the internet and all of the other benefits from which Microsoft has profited is a form of theft and disrespect. A nephew who was given great gifts by his Uncle Sam abandons that uncle in the name of greed.
    Thank you for your excellent reply and your many other thoughtful and civil replies I’ve read in the past.
    Sincerely,
    C.

    “Republicans are going to go against the 14th amendment to the Constitution of the United States by refusing to raise the debt ceiling. Thereby breaking their sacred oath of office to protect this great union.”
    -
    Republicans’ sacred oath is the one they pledged to protect and defend Grover Norquist.

    Good article, but it failed to identify the One Ring — the One that Rules Them All.
    -
    That would, of course, be the Koch Brothers.

    Tea party Republicans blame Obama for the shutdown they planned.
    .
    “It’s exactly what we wanted, and we got it,” Bachmann said to the Washington Post.
    .
    On Sunday, House Speaker John A. Boehner was acting like a jilted girlfriend in an interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC. Boehner insisted Obama’s refusal to give him a phone call is the reason government offices remain shuttered. Boehner, of course, could end the impasse all by himself simply by allowing a vote on the Senate-passed continuing resolution to fund the government. It would easily get thumbs-up from Democrats and a significant share of Republican House members, but letting that happen would earn Boehner major grief, not only from the radicals in his caucus, but from the rich conservative money men who spearheaded the drive for this showdown.

    @Rad-ish

    Thank you Radish, but despite links to video and even Fox news video, there is a hardcore group that refuses to believe anything other than Obama being the sole cause of this mess.
    He has some ownership, but it’s Boehnor refusing to allow a vote. There is the true lack of negotiation, but it goes against the story the extreme right wants to put forward, therefore, it’s not real.
    It will be interesting to see what happens next week. The gov’t shut down during a time when our soldiers are at war, and the debt ceiling crisis about to land on us.
    Sadly,
    C.

    Obama agreed to a $70 billion budget cut, Boehner accepted the offer, which was a deeper cut than Ryan’s original budget and close to his most recent suggestion.
    .
    Then Boehner got a visit from the Tea Party mafia and pretended the conversation never took place.
    .
    Shameful. More shameful? The conservatives who join in pretending it never happened.
