The main issue is that the GOP wants to de-fund, or in some other way prevent the Affordable Care Act from being fully enacted. So any compromises that they are attempting to do, that include action against the ACA, are going to fail - it's pretty much a non-issue at this point, and the GOP just can't seem to understand that this is a Law that was legally passed, and more or less upheld by the Supreme Court. They are like little children who can't get their way, so they just keep stamping their feet and try to pretend that if they scream about it long enough someone will give in.
There is a straight compromise bill that is ready to go through, that doesn't include anything about the ACA, however my understanding is that even though a majority of GOP are behind passing it, Speaker of the House Boehmer refuses to put it to a vote, because he refuses to leave the ACA out of it. - http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/02/clean-funding-bill_n_4031784.html
President and the Senate won't compromise. House keeps sending over comprises, senate keeps rejecting. Then you have certain parts of the federal government that is shut down. Government spending is down, stocks are up, USA is surviving. Amazing we can survive with a smaller government. Look it up for yourself. Find out how many things have been sent over from the House. Also, look at what's on the table. Deficit cap and Obama care. Our Government, Republican and Democrats, need to get there head out of there butts, live under the same laws they pass, including Obama care, and live within there means. Whatever cut backs they need to make, make them and do what's right for US. We need to stop over spending, this is ridiculous. Bush started it, Obama keeps rolling with it. I don't care what letter is next to your name. We the people need to speak up, stop believing what is said by anyone. I can name a number of lies that has been said over the last 3 days.
Want to solve the majority of problem in gov't ? Have term limits, 8 yrs max in office. obamacare?, everyone will have to pay in to make this work, Pres. Should have been the first to sign up. And who is going to watch this money thats payed in? The IRS? Figure the odds?
Shut down means the government is out of money it wants a CR and to remove the debt ceiling CR continue resolution meaning to get more money debt ceiling meaning more credit that's basically why we shut down the US is broke 17 trillion dollars in the hole think about it who's going to loan us money with no assets to back it up that's the meaning of the shutdown its not a democratic thing or Republican thing it's an American thing the people run by and out of control government
