Forums - Politics Discussion - Just shut down the U.S Government already!

Let every government agency take turns cutting programs until we get a real plan. One week let it be the Post office, the next Military, etc.

Am I the only one that welcomes a partial shutdown?

 

Or would a shut down lower our rating again?

 

 

By the way...Obama does not have to be part of Obamacare? Even though his name is in it. And neither does Unions? Is that because they are a huge special interest group?

Let me get this straight, are you telling me that obama doesn't have to have obama care?

Obama-care isn't the actual name of the health plan. I just hope they resolve this quickly, if they shutdown for a few days then no big deal but if it goes on for lets say 3 weeks then it will start to hurt our economy etc....

Senate kills latest ObamaCare counter-offer, bill kicks back to House

DEVELOPINGThe Senate voted for the second time Monday to kill a Republican counter-offer that would rein in ObamaCare while funding the government, kicking the bill back to the House with only a couple hours left on the clock before the government begins to shut down.
Lawmakers are facing a midnight deadline to reach an agreement on a government spending bill. Senate Democrats vow they will not accept any proposal that targets ObamaCare.
The latest House bill would have delayed the law's individual mandate while prohibiting lawmakers, their staff and top administration officials from getting government subsidies for their health care.
The Senate voted 54-46 along party lines to reject it.

ORIGINAL STORY
: The House on Monday narrowly approved a new Republican counterproposal to both rein in ObamaCare and fund the government, with just hours to go until a midnight shutdown deadline. 

Senate Democrats have already warned that they will not consider any measure that targets ObamaCare. They plan to take up -- and likely reject -- the GOP bill within the hour. That will leave roughly two hours on the clock before midnight. 

The House approved its latest proposal on a 228-201 vote. 

The new counterproposal would delay the health law's individual mandate by a year, and also prohibit members of Congress, their staffers and other officials from receiving additional government subsidies for their health care. That provision caused consternation among lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, with some reluctant to hurt their own staff by taking away additional subsidies for their health care costs. According to the site Legistorm, the average House staffer salary is under $60,000. Twelve Republicans peeled off in the latest vote to oppose the bill. 

Amid the drama, President Obama said he's holding out hope that Congress will come together "in the 11th hour." 

A shutdown "does not have to happen," Obama said, during remarks at the White House. The president has calle



 

Obamacare ? More like Obamney care LMAO.

On-Topic: There are somethings that I don't approve of the U.S government but I wouldn't outright shut it down.

Just as long as they dodge the debt ceiling. That's either going to end in global recession, government bankruptcy, or a constitutional crisis if Obama takes extraordinary measures to avert either.

Thanks for making voice acting an a-list pastime.

I wish I were a bird!

He would rather have the country collapse than make concessions about his baby.

No one is going to dodge the debt ceilings cause both of the major parties have being lobbied by corporations LOL. BTW Obama isn't going to do jack shit to it. 



The debt ceiling is just a ticking time bomb for our country.

I am enlisted in the AF so this may affect my pay in the future but I agree government spending is entirely out of hand. It is a shame congress will not be affected by the shutdown.
