    Obamanationcare is starting to implode already with all its screw ups. We can only hope it does as little damage as possible to people as it self-destructs. The longer they insist on clinging to this hideous idea, the worse it will get. Many have actually lost their health insurance as a result of it, and other have seen their rates soar in order to pay for those who did not buy insurance previously and are now able to hop on with preexisting conditions, and to support the drug addicts who brought their own problems on themselves. And the tyrannical Obamanation continues to keep veterans out of their memorials, people out of their national parks for no good reason, and threaten those who refuse this government mandated health insurance with seizure of bank accounts and liens on homes. Thanks, all of you dumb enough to vote the Obamanation, the single worst president in the history of this country, this worthless piece of human debris, into power.

    Boehner and company are the ones threatening all we veterans, just as W did. Obama has improved things at VA despite the fact Republicans have continued to provide less than adequate funding for the increase in claims, from “old farts” coming on board, as well as Afghan and Iraq vets.

    “Winning” is all that matters him, screw the people.

    Obama did it. Right. How’s about Libertarian Republicans? Apparently they believe tainted food should be available on the market, and market forces should decide whether such food is economically viable. Isn’t prohibiting the sale of tainted food a restriction on the freedoms of buyers and sellers? And in the event you die from consuming such food, there IS a common law remedy in the courts. Thus, the shutdown of food inspection is NOT a negative. Rather, it is an expansion of American freedom as contemplated by our Founding Fathers and Rand Paul.

    This partial shut down is the Dems responsibility, they must protect Obamacare at all cost.

    Hopefully, this will be the closest we ever come to becoming a socialist/communist country.

    At least the illegals, excuse me, the undocumented had their rally at the mall.

    That’s right, the Republicans had nothing to do with this crisis. They were not in Washington at all. Where were they? Certainly not doing there job.

    That’s obviously not Obama’s ball that conked the vet. It landed behind the Prez.

    Boehner or Cruz playing in the following group?

    Once again Lisa let her hate for Obama lead her.I am a war vet and belong to many veteran organizations and each and everyone of our groups blame the shutdown and looming default squarely on the shoulders of the tea party and Gop,and we plan to show them this in 2014.

    I saw a video of a Defense Department rep speaking to journalists early last September. He specifically warns that if the shutdown takes place, death benefits would be halted along with other benefits and debts our nation owes the military. For the GOP to act as if this is a surprise is disingenuous and hypocritical.
    While the shutdown has been an inconvenience to me, it has been life threatening to others. Fox and the GOP are calling it a slimdown. This ‘slimdown’ is costing the US gov’t 200 million dollars a day. It’s costing small business even more. The GOP wants to cut billions from programs across the board, but every 5 days, one billion is LOST. The House GOP is also trying to do a strange “line item veto” where they vote to fund specific programs important to their base or popular in the media while not funding other things.
    The Dems helped us get to this point, but Speaker Boehnor OWNS this shutdown until he permits a vote on the bill passed by 100% of the Senate.
    In addition, the 6 week CR he is agreeing to does not get us through Christmas and that will effect small business and companies that make the gifts people want to buy for friends and family this holiday season. My REPUBLICAN Representative, Scott Rigell, is pushing for long term plans that will enable Virginia and the rest of the nation to make the kind of plans they need that will permit hiring and innovation investments. I wrote to him this morning on several issues.
    I do NOT want the Dems to have total power in DC because I’ve seen the mistakes they’ve made in the past, however, the GOP extremists currently leading Mr. Boehnor’s behavior do NOT want ANY gov’t and have no loyalty to anyone or anything but their own political paradigm. Some of these believe they are doing God’s will and whatever happens will be God’s plan.
    That is why the founders wanted separation between church and state. To prevent those who seek power in the name of God and who are willing to do harm to millions in God’s name. “Kill them all, God knows his own.”
