Either you fund everything of the government or nothing gets funded, period.
The president and the liberal democrats that control the Senate have shut down the government because they demand that "Obamacare" (Section 8 insurance) be included in the continuing resolution (not the same as a budget). The other scenario allows the funding of Obamacare in the continuing resolution and you hasten the shutdown of the American private economy. Man, what a choice.
Bad enough that the EPA is shutting down the coal industry, which is shutting down power plants, that is, raising the price of electricity. Yet it is the government shutdown that brings out the petulant child of Barry, the American president.
Barry's boys, his hand-picked bureaucrat hacks, have barricaded off the open-air World War II monument to teach the American citizen who the real power in Washington DC is. That's like Mayor Swoger barricading off all the park benches in Thompson Park because the water department wouldn't increase its rates.
The Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, aka Section 8 insurance, has nothing to do with health insurance or health care but everything to do with control of the private citizen by government.
