Random Thoughts on TV, Movies, Gaming, Current Events and Whatever I Feel Like
Partially true if Republicans had super majorities that could bypass democratic attempts to obstruct, but with you being so political I'm sure you already know you can't pass bills with a simple majority. At least I hope you know this with how much you talk down to others...
The Democrats aren't obstructing, they're completely cut off from the process by Republican leadership. As the party that controls both houses and the White House, it is incumbent upon Republicans to do what they can to compromise with the other party to get enough votes to pass funding legislation. It's called governing. (Kind of like Democrats did when they passed Obamacare. For about ten months they compromised on a variety of issues. Republicans still didn't vote for it.) Now, Republicans have absolutely refused to compromise in any way, and since the Democrats can't set the agenda, the fault of a government shutdown is on the Republicans.
Your revision of history amazes me. Obamacare was made without any republican input. Democrats completely locked them out the same as Republicans are doing now. I even remember they tried to pass it so fast people didn't even have a chance to read the bill causing Nancy Pelosi to go on the news and say "you have to pass the bill to know what's in it". Gotta love the logic from the left blindly pass bills then figure out what you screwed up later. P.S. thanks for responding to my comments I am not a troll just hoping to be a small counter balance to the rhetoric.
Sigh.

The House didn’t vote on it until November 7th.In 2010, the Senate health committee spent nearly 60 hours over the course of 13 days marking up the legislation that would become the ACA.The Senate Finance Committee held 53 meetings about the ACA and an eight-day markup of the bill, which was the longest markup for the committee in over 20 years.
