    And the fact that he's the president, so he is in charge of anything that is happening
    No. The United States is under a system of checks and balances. The President doesn't control what Congress does or doesn't do. Congress is comprised of 2 houses. The upper and lower houses. The upper a.k.a. the Senate is controlled by the Democrats. The lower a.k.a. the House of Representatives is controlled by the Republicans. Can you already see the problem there? In order for anything to move onto the President for him to sign into effect, it must make it through ALL of congress. Meaning both the House of Representatives and the Senate.

    Congress doesn't care, they're still getting paid which is fucking retarded.

    Start deducting $500 dollars each day the government is shut down from their pockets and see how fast they start caring.

    I thought it shut down last year or the year before but both times it was narrowly avoided. /wew

    Actually, John Boehner (The Speaker of the House) is pissed off at the rest of the GOP because as history has shown, the speaker will never maintain his position through re-election after a shutdown. And same goes for a lot of other members. But generally speaking, yes, those fucktards don't give a shit about the "people".

    I think it's funny because they say they represent the people against Obamacare but 2/3 people think obamacare should stay / be improved.

    I knew a day like this would come, What they don't see is that doing this for even a week will KILL the economy even more than it is. Obama is truly a fucking retard because he just wants to push Obama Care because it's his "Little Baby" and he wants to be known for doing something good when all it will do is fine the people who can't afford health insurance in the first place.

    The system of Checks and Balances has been fucked since they allowed the two party system. Originally our government wasn't supposed to be ran like that because our forefathers knew it would create major conflict.

    I don't remember how we began to disregard the rules to veer towards the two parties but either way its fucking idiotic. We need a neutral president that isn't a complete fuckwit.
