GOP knew nothing, had they known that the wouldn't have been playing chicken with the economy trying to end Obama care. It would have gotten rid of itself without their artificial smoke screen.

The democrats, from prez on down, were equally willing to let the charade of "govt. shutdown" play out for their own political advantage (as they saw it). There are no innocent or good parties in this piece of theatre. Frankly, maybe more of the truly nonessential parts of the govt should shutdown so people could get a tax holiday. Seems unlikely we'd suffer much in the their absence. Or at least the money saved could go to the debt (instead of trying to raise the debt limit every six months or so in yet another hair shirt performance of political theatre). This whole healthcare debacle is just a stepping stone toward govt run "universal healthcare" (an admission made by people like Harry Reid and Barney Frank even). If you like how govt runs things now, Im sure you'll be happy when they seize healthcare from the private sector.....right before they move onto making the grab for the 401ks (b/c, you know afterall, old people can't handle more than one check b/c they are so easily confused. ). The govt has an insatiable hunger for money and power and we are merely pawns to be patronized to in its collective view.

Yup, and the people continue electing the party determined to take more and more away from the private sector. Truly sickening.



If I die today, I'm happy how my life turned out
