The United States Constitution provides that spending bills originate in the House of Representatives.
The American people elected a majority in the House that does not believe that we should be funding Obamacare.
It is irresponsible for the President and the Senate to stop funding the areas of the government that enjoy mutual support.
Apparently the Democrats want to go back and relive the last election. But it’s over and the institution charged with initiating federal spending, like I said, has a majority that simply does not want to fund this massive entitlement program.
I’m not surprised that our “friends” the media want to blame Republicans for a government shutdown. But the reality is that the Republican Congress has sent a resolution to the Senate that would fund virtually all of the government and it has been rejected by Harry Reid who still bitter about Republicans retaining the House in the last election.
