It does amaze me how the media loves to inform the public that it is the fault of the Republicans. When in fact it is the president and the
that are at fault and making it as difficult on the people as possible.

I do hope that the people wake up and start removing the dead weight next year and in 2016 do what is good for the people.
The reason an agreement was not reached was because the
insisted in trying to extort changes to other law before passing a routine spending bill. Since there's a law that no money can be spent that has not been authorized by congress the President has no choice but to shut down anything non-essential that has not specifically been funded.
