The republicans have been allowed to water down and do what they wanted to for so long this was logically the next step. The democrats just sat back as usual and played the role of the whipping boy while President Obama wasted time trying to be a middle-of-the-road bipartisan President instead of standing for the people. Both sides are to blame and its sad absolutely disgusting. Now the one time President Obama and the democrats decide to push back, what do you get, shutdown. This is what happens when you feed the beast. If Obamacare was not an issue when it was passed into law and then found constitutional by the Supreme Court but not now that it is about to be implemented it is a problem? If this was that horrible of a piece of legislation then it should have died in the House and never seen the light of day until it was to the Republicans liking. Simply put the republicans dropped the ball on this one but are not mature enough to accept the fact that they lost on this particular policy. They would rather put hundreds of thousands of people out of work over legislation that they passed. The people should call for a constitutional convention to make an amendment to have congress’s pay held in the event they keep the government from functioning and also to get money out of politics. The American people do not mean anything to this congress they are nothing more than a bargaining chip to used and thrown away to appease their donors. There are not anymore representatives left in congress all we have are politicians which are the equivalent of prostitutes. The will do anything you want for the right price and from what I have seen they are pretty cheap.
