Apparently the writer of this article didn't see John Boehner on George Stephonopolis on Sunday. Boehner admitted having several discussions with Harry Reid over the summer and had come to an agreement that Boehner would send a clean CR to the Senate if the Senate agreed to an additional 70 Billion in cuts. They agreed on it in July. Boehner went back to his members (Tea Party)and they said no..lets take a stand against the ACA. So who started this again?

OMG! Saw the headline, read the opinion and realized some poor soul is wandering around without the benefit of oxygen intake.

It's easy to pick and choose from the internet to justify one's own prejudices it seems. Just because it's on the internet doesn't mean it's true. A partial truth, spun rhetorically to slam the target of a right wing blogger, is hardly an honest analysis of a situation.

If the House had sent the Senate a reasonable budget then they could have worked on it and compromised. The problem was, and remains, that the Ryan budget was so full of extremist cuts for social programs and huge benefits for the 1% that reasonable people knew right away it was a non-starter produced in bad faith as a political tool rather than a real attempt to work toward a deal the majority could accept.

This kind of stubborn, hard headed political game playing by the Republican party is what has brought us to the Boehner shutdown. The truth is that this crisis was manufactured by the Tea Party caucus. The whole truth, that is.

PBJ - show me where I lied on this post "As Crisis Unfolds, Obama Sets Personal Golf Record By KEITH KOFFLER, White House Dossier "As the House moved Saturday toward passing legislation that will likely result in a government shutdown, President Obama excused himself to play his customary Saturday golf, a round that set a record for most golf outings in a year since he became president. It is perhaps emblematic of his declining influence on Capitol Hill that Obama chose not to work to affect the outcome of one of the most consequential pieces of legislation in years and instead engaged in his favorite recreational activity".

If you'd like more, let me know. Or, you could just omit you were wrong.

Tell me the lies PBJ - "PBJ, IS THIS A LIE? "Year after year, Reid and Obama make no attempt to even vote on the submitted budget sent to the Senate by the House. I believe that is much more accurate"

Or how about this "Oh, and PWU - two questions - if it is LAW, how is Obama allowed to change it without going through the Congress??

Slavery was LAW, did that get abolished"

Still no proof that "Every post you ever make on here is a lie or a derogatory statement." So pbj, I'll forgive your LIE. And by the way PWU is Pleasewakeup, the poster.

This is where I originally posted that you had lied. ct-05-13 8:47 AM Agree | Disagree Seadog what is wrong with you? Every post you ever make on here is a lie or a derogatory statement. Obviously you know how to type and use the internet so check your facts. Were you bullied as a child or were you always a bully? You know there is no such thing as an Obama phone (signed into law by George W.)and yet you keep repeating the lie. Are you too lazy to find the truth and make yourself look stupid with your posts? Come on man, raise yourself up and have some dignity.

Seadog: Oct-04-13 12:21 PM That's because the majority of the readers for the ACA are on welfare, do not work, receive food stamps, have a free Obama phone, have or do not pay taxes, and are boot licking Obama lovers. Is that racist Madman?

Free Obama phone? That was debunked a few years ago...why are you repeating that lie now?

Pbj - still waing for you to prove my lies.

So you throw out a statement that I lie. Then I asked that you prove it. And then you give me a web site without telling me what "lies" I need to look up. Let's make this easy.....tell me what lies I told and I will look them up.

The government shutdown may be a blessing in disguise. It could mean that the Republican Party will be out of power for the next 10 years.

SEADOG for one, that's a lot of hate. People fliping burgers actually make about $8.15 an hour. In Jamestown, college educated are making $15 an hour.

Whether you agree with the Affordable Care Act or not, this LAW has already taken effect. It was voted on in the House and Senate and passed. The Democrats had control of the house at that time and that's they way our government works. The GOP pushed it to the Supreme Court in protest to judge it's constitutionality. John Roberts, Supreme Court Justice elected by George W. Bush, agreed that it is totally legal and it passed the Supreme Court. Now it's law. Now the Tea Part is holding the House hostage and our government, because of a rich guy named Grover Norquist and his elite croneys that run the Tea Party. Obama won the election on Obamacare and the GOP are sore losers and would rather this country fails, because it's not "thier" way. Selfish and very self centered group of people.

Hey, remember the movie version of Popeye? The song for Brutus fits our president. Everyone sing along now: "He's mean, he's mean, he's mean. If you know what I mean."
