Durbin now on floor demanding personal details about Sen. Cruz's health insurance. A person's healthcare shouldn't be gov't business.

Only 4% of Americans work for gov't & they make more than most of us. So why are we worried about shutting down gov't affecting the rich 4%?

Govt shutdowns don't actually save money or shrink govt, but they are a reminder that much govt is unnecessary

For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

So Harry Reid will #ShutDown the government, in order to keep himself exempt from Obamacare, while forcing Americans into it.

Fewer than 1 in 4 independents approve of GOP handling of budget, and GOP operatives are pleasing themselves with hashtag games.

Obama can talk tough to the American people while he appeases the despots of the world.

Nunes calls colleagues 'Lemmings with suicide vests'

As a government shutdown looms, tensions are rising within Republican ranks.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) had choice words for fellow House Republicans who are willing to see the government shut down over their opposition to Obamacare: “Lemmings with suicide vests,” he called them.

“They have to be more than just a lemming. Because jumping to your death is not enough,” he said.

“You have this group saying somehow if you’re not with them, you’re with Obamcare. If you’re not with their plan — exactly what they want to do, you’re with Obamcare. It’s getting a little old,” he said.

Nunes said he would support House leadership’s latest strategy: A bill that would keep the government open but delay the individual mandate for a year. But he said that approach means a government shutdown will be all but certain.

The result for his party? “You guys ever watch 16 Candles?” he asked a small group of reporters. “You guys remember Long Duk Dong at the end? That’s going to be us tomorrow, waking up on the grass, crashed automobile. That’s us.”

The beloved 1980s movie ends with the foreign exchange student passed out drunk on a lawn after crashing his wealthy suburban Chicago host family’s car.

Mr President, what about the failure of the Senate Democrats to "pass a budget" or even propose one for over 3 years?
