      It seems that a decision could not be made which has resulted in the US being partially shut down after the deadline was reached, this will include zoo's, museums and anyone who may work for the government will not be working and will not be paid or get any kind of back pay once things are resolved from what I understand.

      What are your thoughts about this shut down?.

      shows that a government run by two different sides is the worst thing for any country to do.

      I agree, I understand that the US is still on shut down for a second day which can not be good at all. We get some news over here but never as much as what the US obviously get on things like this. Has anything else been said about it being any nearer to resolving the problem?

      this is being caused by our new healthcare. As such this may never end.

      It effects nothing with the working class, they still get up and go to work, those people on the fed payroll are the ones that do without and frankly more than 2/3rds don't need to be there, they have turned our country into a third world non functional one with all the rampant law making and over taxing to pay their silly payrolls for doing all the damage in the first place. amazing we pay for all the damage to be piled onto us. This health care sham is no more than a scheme to socialize this country and for those that think it isn't just think about this, they now have the authority to go into your personal bank account and steal your money if they chose to do so, this is what gets people especially people that work for the government to get killed. I call it Tyranny plain and simple, no one was asked if we wanted to pay for someone else s health care, they like to say it was approved by the majority....BS it was passed because they bought one or two votes from the democrap party by giving our tax money to certain member for their respective states, now that is illegal and is reason enough to hang all of them as far as I'm concerned. They're all a bunch of felons, but anyway at some point this entire mess will be thrown out and we'll all have to man up and just lose the billions spent by this idiot from kenyan . I only hope the people that voted for him feel all the pain first.

      I understand that this health care is based on several effective ones. It's a matter of being in the other's shoes, if you couldn't afford health care wouldn't you be praising god for finally having health care because of this? Not to mention everyone paying in will keep health costs from going up.

      I was raised in a free country where we were all responsible for ourselves, we are not socialist and I understand this is where young America is going, all I can say is they will be sorry! Most live at home with Mom and Dad already, never served in our military, do nothing but whine about what they don't have, cry about what someone else that was innovative enough or smart enough to accomplish on their own and have the nerve to expect them to pay for their stuff. Once again it don't work that way. Health care was destroyed when this country allowed lawyers to roam the land like hungry beast, they feed off silliness and the willingness of a society to allow them to do so unchecked. You can't walk out your front door without breaking some silly law that was written to bring in more revenue so those politicians can give themselves another raise a couple months from now, at midnight with no attendance or vote needed. Car insurance is the biggest legalized theft in the history of the world, if you think that's bad just wait about 5 or 6 years and I guarantee if I'm still alive I'll come back here and ask you how much comes out of your monthly check to go see some idiot that can't even speak English much less diagnose an illness. The only way they will give any service or care is to hire foreign people who are more than willing to work for less...that's the way these Tyrants operate. Nobody wants to die but I'm quite happy I'm not 20 years old and facing what is coming down the pike. You better be prepared because health care is the least of your worries in but a few short years.

      The USA is in a 20 trillion dollar debt, I'm very aware this health thing is the least of our worries. Not everyone, but there are some who need a helping hand like this health care offers.
