I really feel that there is a lot of confusion in this area. The Republicans have (according to them) proposed eight funding bills which are sitting on Harry Reid's desk, and he won't let the Senate vote on them. They claim that they have compromised repeatedly and that neither the Executive branch or the Senate will come to the table. Clearly someone is in the wrong. On the other hand, IMHO, the shutdown is completely the Senate's fault. The House passed bills to fund everything except Obamacare, and those bills were rejected. Why not pass those bills, keep everything up and running, then have the discussion about Obamacare?

If you have to ask how much it is, you can't afford it.
