    My thought exactly about the junior Senator from Texas (my home state), Ted …

    He seems to be doing everything possible to fail to win re-election.

    He is doing exactly what the people that elected him want. He is trying to stop the ecomony killing socialized medicine law. Which the supreme court ruled was not a health care bill but a tax. He is trying to stop them from just raising the debt limit without a budget. Which allows obama to spend it on what he wants with no accountability. The last time the Republicans refused to give into the democrats run away spending, Clinton got together with them and worked out one of the few balance budgets we have had. The “most bi-partisan, most transparent administration we have every had” simply says I wont even talk to you.

    The goverment is not shut down because of obamacare, it is not shut down becasue of the debt ceiling and it is not shut down because of the Republicans. It is shut down because for the first time ever a president has not passed a budget to fund anything. Before you start saying “well the Republicans” let me remind you that for two years he had complete control and could have passed any budget he wanted. He has submitted two budgets. Budgets go to the senate first. His budgets were so bad that not a single democrat voted for them. Not even harry reid. They never made it out of the senate so the Republicans in the house had nothing to do with blocking them.

    For those of you that are now going to say budgets don’t fund anything, apropiations do. True, but the budget is guidline for the apropiations and there is never a fight over them to fund an aproved budget.

    Yah, just because it’s in the news and congressional record doesn’t make it fact. It’s not fact till Jay Carney says it in a press briefing.

    fbjsr: You really need to read The Constitution of The United States. It is the responsibility of thee House of Representatives to submit a budget to the U S Senate, and they must agree on a budget before the President of the United States can accept it or veto it.

    There are three equal branches of the USA government. The Executive Branch, headed by the President, the Judicial Branch, and the Legislative Branch, composed of Senate and the House of Representatives. According to the Constitution, the Senate is Superior to the House but it requires both bodies of Congress to be Equal to the President or the Supreme Court.

    The fact the Senate is the superior body, is indicated in the Constitution, where the President has authority to conduct foreign policy and make treaties with the advice and consent of the U S A Senate.

    The House of Representatives have no constitutional authority to engage in foreign affairs, and Nancy Pelosi continued a tradition of power grabbing by ordering a fleet of Gulfstream jets to conduct foreign junkets by the House of Representatives. How much money could the country save if the House followed the Constitution and kept away from foreign policy?

    The Republicans own this mess. It is irresponsible, and possibly illegal, to hold the government hostage to try and defund established law, upheld by a majority conservative Supreme Cout. Last night, Boehner said the first sensible thing he has said in weeks, by saying he would not make a deal without budget cuts. Well, he is Speaker of the House, and Constitutionally it is the House of Representatives’ responsibility to pass a budget the grown-ups in the Senate can accept, and after back and forth come to an agreement the President can consider. When the President and Senate submit budget requests, they are only guidance for the House to understand what the other participants want.

    I knew Reagan. I helped get him elected and went to Washington DC with his people. Reagan was not the man the current myth makes him to be, and would vehemently oppose the actions of the Tea Party Poopheads. Reagan was the great compromiser and had excellent spin control.

    If you check the facts, Reagan’s actions were more liberal than Bill Clinton’s actions, except for the wild sex. Wild sex is the purview of the National Republican Support Staff, and National Democratic Support Staff are a bit stuffy about more creative types of extramarital sex. Clinton was more Republican than Reagan when it came to wild sex.

    With Eyes Wide Open,

    PS: Turn off all media, and look for truth yourself. Do not accept anyone’s, mine included, statements without checking independent, non partisan sources. I receive many, ostensibly unrelated publications, and there seems to be certain themes each side wants me to look at and support or oppose.

    I just believe the voters are fed up, even in the ultra red districts. And I am a republican, just not so extreme.
