Let It Close
The GOP has re-edited what Harry Reid sent them in a last ditch effort to defund or at least put-off implementing ObamaCare. However, the GOP still is trying to fund the government to avoid closing it. With the DEMs in control of the Senate, we can predict that they will reject the latest means to fund ALL government activities - except ObamaCare. They refuse to negotiate.
Consequently, it will be the DEMOCRATS who will shut-down the government. The latest House bill eliminates the tax on medical devices which should help seniors. It also postpones the implementation of ObamaCare for a year while funding all government agencies. That's a win-win for both sides.
The DEMOCRATS - including the President, have already said that they WILL NOT NEGOTIATE. Ironic in light of the fact that Obama decided to "Negotiate" with our arch enemies in IRAN, but won't talk to the Republicans to "negotiate" our budget. So it really looks like if you want to blame anyone, blame the DEMOCRATS. Don't be fooled by all the finger-pointing that will happen. Congress is the one who decided to take a 5 week vacation just before this crisis. Understand that the people who jammed ObamaCare down your throats are not willing to admit that they NEVER followed the will of the people and they are the ones responsible for this situation.
So let the government close-down. It will save taxpayer's money. They can start first with closing the White House completely and then stop paying Congress. Maybe then they will all wake-up and start doing what we hired them to do in the first place.
