Obama is right--if Boehner had the House vote on the Senate's CR, the votes were there for no shut down/ending shut down and related waste of money.

The Tea Party must know something really disgusting about Agent Orange - either than or all that booze and tanning has eroded his mind. There are no other reasons for one man to be so destructive. The President is calling a spade a spade...

Good for the President. I hope someone can get thru the brain of that idiot. He's allowing himself to be the patsy for the Tbaggers and destroying our country and government. It is time to weed the Destroyers out of our government. They don't care who they hurt or how many of us suffer. They are just self serving pissants who don't deserve to be in OUR government; but want to destroy it. They should be brought up on treason charges for trying to bring down our government.

Obama said we can get back to the business of governing...the GOPTP haven't been governing for several years, only obstructing - and collecting their pay.

Noted. Thanks, Carrie. The reason Boner won't let it come up for a vote is because of the Hastert Rule which states that if a majority of Republicans can't pass a bill without any Dem support, the vote won't be brought to the floor. I think they should dump the Hastert Rule and replace it with the Golden Rule.

The republicans should grow up, and end this schoolyard-worth behavior. (I know, kind of an insult towards children)

Thanks Carrie!

Obama said that Boehner could reopen the government and send hundreds of thousands of people back to work “in just five minutes” by passing a temporary operating budget with no partisan strings attached. And still the madness goes on!!!
Noted with thanks Carrie.
