    US government shuts down

    The first shutdown of the U.S. government in 17 years began early Tuesday as Congress bickered and bungled an effort to fund federal agencies due to a bitter ideological standoff over Obamacare.The embarrassing disruption that an angry President Obama said was “entirely preventable” and would “throw a wrench into the gears” of the country’s recovering economy was triggered as a midnight deadline passed without agreement between the Republican-controlled House and Democrat-run Senate.

    I bet their paychecks don't shut down

    It absolutely disgusts me that the obamessiah is repeatedly blaming this all on the republicans. Fact is, there is a shitload of people in DC who have completely lost touch and who created this problem. Of course, all of their income is protected and they're not affected by anything they legislate.

    I guess this means Eric Holder and the rest of the Justice Dept. won't be able to sue any states today or in the near future.

    good. most of the federal government needs to be shut down anyways. Maybe I can get to keep some more of my money for a change.

    Sorry , buddy. The part of the federal government that sucks money out of your paycheck has been deemed essential. On the hand monuments in D.C. that never have barricades around them have been walled off with signs hung up that says they were closed for the shutdown. Political points apparently are more important to the Administration than the public (yet again). Anybody in the media questioning this????

    The latest "catch phrase" I'm hearing on various programs is, "If Obamacare is such a bad thing, then why did thousands of people try to sign up for it the first day it went on line?" Ummm, how about because they are being FORCED into the programs?!?

    Because some of them don't have any insurance, and something beats nothing? Because they'll be fined & punished if they don't -- even though the employer mandate has been delayed a year...
