Really Arod, you haven’t been paying attention have you? Obama, Reid, and the Democrats want a continuing resolution and budget with all of the things they want in it, particularly full funding for Obamacare..The Republicans want a budget that removes most or all of Obamacare spending..The Republican led house has sent several variants of a continuing resolution to the Senate with different options on Obamacare.The Democrats rejected them all out of hand because they didn’t include full funding for Obamacare..It is the Democrats who are intransigent here. They have a hard-line unchanging position on what they want for funding the government. That they are unwilling to compromise means that they are the primary reason government is shutting down. It is that simple.
