The Republicans want to take the country hostage and see it fail all because of Obamacare?!  According to Pulse of Radio,

The federal government is on track for a shutdown at midnight tonight after the Republican-led House passed federal funding legislation early Sunday morning (September 29th) that includes a one-year delay in implementation of key parts of the Affordable Care Act. The Democratic-led Senate is set to convene this afternoon (September 30th), but Majority Leader Harry Reid has already said that any funding bill that includes measures to kill or delay the three-year-old health care law — dubbed Obamacare — is dead on arrival. The standoff began with the House initially passing the legislation with a provision that defunded Obamacare. The Senate stripped that out and sent the measure back to the House, which led to the most recent vote to instead delay the health care law. If a shutdown does happen — which would be the first in 17 years — some 800,000 federal workers deemed non-essential would be laid off without pay. The national parks will be closed, and other government services will be unavailable, such as getting a passport or visa. Critical services like patrolling the borders, inspecting meat and controlling air traffic will continue, as will Social Security payments and the Medicare and Medicaid health care programs.

This is utterly ridiculous!  Once they see how we can’t operate if the government shuts down, will they be happy then?  We doubt it.
