Let's not forget that there's plenty of blame to go around. There's someone else who won't negotiate. Not saying either side isn't wrong, because Congress_ did_ make sure they were immune to it.

But so did he.

My dad's an FAA employee, and he gets no paycheck but has no leave. House payment is due today, and we haven't any money, so I can imagine how this is effecting, say, mailmen.

Bring on the red thumbs.

Except Congress makes the laws and makes the budget. The president does truly have a part in this except for a sort of spokes person for the democrats.

But it is his bill that he (and therefore, his party) refuses to negotiate over.

It's his bill that was passed fairly 3 years ago.

yes but dont forget its a bill that has already legally passed that the republicans are trying to change. obama should not have to negotiate since its already passed.

Well that bill is totally useless it puts us under the government, they work for us not the other way around. It is in no way a good bill, the costs for families is higher than what you can get from your employer. The whole thing is meant to fail so that we have to move it to single payer, hello dictatorship good by "free" America
