What government shut down?

Unless you were a WWII vet on a previously scheduled Honor Flight to visit the privately funded, open air memorial, there was precious little impact on your life - except to make us realize just how many non-essential government employees we pay for.

The Progressives challenged Wall Street? Weird, they hand them 85 billion a month, seems like they love Wall Street. Right out of your pocket, look at your money, the Federal Reserve thinks your such a joke they colored the money the same as monopoly money. LOL

corporate-serfdom- It's comment like yours truth that continues the decline of our nation.

Thank the tea party for challenging the status quo and establishment.

Total BS. Who did Tea Party challenge? Not Wall St? Status quo is corporate greed and less pie for consumers and middle classes.

Funny, but last time I checked the status quo was megacorporations recording record profits while everyone else struggles. Your stuupid Tea Party supports corporate rights over the rights of the people. You are fighting against the people's government on behalf of the status quo and you don't even see it! You support the total declawing of our government as if the government was making huge profits on healthcare. Idiot! The corporations are raking it in...they put Obammy up to the ACA and they control the weakened people's govt. They want it weaker in the sense that there is no watchdog on behalf of the people.

Do you really believe corporations care about anyone but themselves?

Facts: Obama said he would cut the deficit in half, well, he doubled it.

Yes he did say say raising the debt ceiling is "failed Leadership by the President,

Well he is President and he has FAILED--YES GETS AN -F- BASED ON HIS OWN GRADING SYSTEM.

stew7274-

Old time southern democrats were worse racists than modern republicans and Tea Party advocates. Congratulations! As a consolation prize, you get to advance straight to hell-o with all those racist democrats from 50 years ago and your Tea Party friends of today.

liemonger- Again, show me where this modern Tea Party went viral during the Bush admin or shut the #$%^& up.

Bachman, Cruz, Rubio, Palin, and other early Tea Party celebrities jumped all over president Obama just weeks into his presidency to cement the idea in the political world that huge deficits and Wall St bank bank bailouts (which Bush had begun) and therefore huge deficits were of Democratic origins. Reality doesn't matter so long as the masses associate democrats with the big mess.

The Tea party is a sham intended to mislead the people.

stew7274- what is your point? Southern democrats were worse than modern racist republicans? Touche! But that was then and this is now!

If the PeeParty didn't act so Crazy and off the wall most of the time trying to change the country so drastically it's making our heads spin, and the way they are going about it is well down right indignant. What do they know, they are FRESHMEN. Maybe they should shut up an listen for a few years.

Let's end governmental welfare to Exxon, Paying farmers to NOT plant, ending foreign aid to Pakistan, getting to h--- out of Afghanistan, money down a rat hole. That should help balance the budget and decrease need for raising debt ceiling.

"strong chance GOP could gain one seat edge in senate." <---liberalsurfblues I pray that you're wrong surfguy.

If the GOP wasn't calling the shots there wouldn't be a shutdown now. GOP...GREAT at closing, cutting, gutting and defunding.

Beyond the politics, the poll finds that the government shutdown and the debate over raising the debt ceiling have made Americans more pessimistic about the country’s direction and economy.

Whenever it comes to BAD economic news....thank republican leadership.

By comparison, a whopping 70 percent say congressional Republicans are putting politics first.

At the bottom of the list are the Tea Party (21 percent favorable/47 percent unfavorable) and the Republican Party (24 percent favorable/53 percent unfavorable) – their lowest favorable numbers in the history of the poll.

Obama’s approval rating ticks up to 47 percent While the shutdown has wounded the Republican Party, Obama’s overall political standing remains stable in the poll.

"GOP extending 5-weeks is flat out better than not one democrat voting to raise debt ceiling in 2006. Right?"

WRONG!! They want to do this while the government is STILL shut down! Terrible deal! Obviously the republicano's rather allow people to go without pay during an already frail economy. Their REAL agenda is NOT the debt, it's stopping the AHCA.

Republicans are about to cave for six weeks on the debt ceiling. If it is good for six weeks, why not six months???? Has anybody seen the Green Eggs and Ham man lately??
