The government shutdown is not simply because the Republicans want to negotiate.
They want to negotiate with Obama regarding runaway spending that equates to your children and their futures being held hostage! Harry Reid has made it quite clear he has no interest in a budget. He refuses to accept anything the House has proposed. He wants to push the country to financial ruin by yet again raising the debt limit without any concessions.
President Obama has denied the House bills to reopen National monuments like the Grand Canyon yet today he allowed an immigration movement access in D.C.! Either he’s an unfair self-centered President or he’s acting like a spoiled child that only wants his way.
The government shutdown only confirms the people’s feelings about the government- giving it and the President the worst rating in American history. If they cared about the people these representatives would be the ones not being paid. The "No Government – No Pay Act" would stop members from being paid their salaries for as long as a shutdown continues. Good luck with representatives that only care about themselves.
Laws are based on merit for funding. The majority of the people were against Obamacare when it was passed without reading it, even more people resent and are against it today 52% against with only 37% in favor. Congress is working on better healthcare solutions with HR 3121 American Health Care Reform Act. It’s time for changes that address the real problems with health care. The title/summary is to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and related reconciliation provisions, to promote patient-centered health care, and for other purposes.
One good thing this government shutdown may achieve is the will of the people has gone unheard long enough. It’s high time the government is held accountable, time it serves the people instead of simply taxing us to death.
