    Huntsman is Not Well Rounded or Smart enough to get much attention from me. I've heard enough from him.. To know. I have little respect his Intel or Honor..

    The American government has officially been shut down by a party which lost the Presidency, Senate and House by 5 million, 7 million, and 1.7 million votes, respectively, in the last election

    The GOP didn't put something forward... they attached a demand list like they were holding the government hostage... end to net neutrality, tax cuts, delays in Obamacare... everything that lost at the polls, they demanded, in exchange for not shutting down the government. They refuse to have these things voted up or down on their own merit, and contrary to popular rhetoric from them, the Senate has passed a budget, but the house refuses to appoint anyone to the reconciliation committee to produce a bill that can be voted on.

    It can't be stated enough: THE ACA IS THE COMPROMISE! The Democrats wanted single payer. The GOP threw a fit, so Obama compromised 4 years ago by giving them this – the very system that the Republicans came up with the last time we negotiated healthcare reform in the 90's. NOW they want to move the goal posts ... again.

    I don't buy that Huntsman, Boehner has no control over the rogue 120 or so congressmen, how is Obama supposed to impress leadership upon them? He does not need to negotiate with those yahoos.

    Curious2 and Dom:
    The government hasn't been shut down. That's a lie spread by the left wing main msm stream media. This is just s slim down. Not a shut down.

    A slim down.

    Hey our government representatives get acting "Responsibly" stop acting like like a Spoiled Brat, you are there to do a job.
    The country is HURTING and we are not getting any help from you, you may think you are but the reality is you are NOT.
    A Democratic Society is the will of the people and the people are the majority of the country not your small circle… In a TEAM there is no I or me or us, a TEAM is a working body for making a successful outcome.
    Luck those representatives are not firemen/policemen/surgeons/air traffic controllers or military personnel, they have to get things done or there could be death to REAL people not agenda.
    You, Representatives, have a job to do and as the people mentioned above.
    If any of those Honorable professionals above took their time to make a correction to the needs that you would want done immediately and if puts anyone of family members you would DEMAND conclusions to correct YESTERDAY.
    Is your house safe...is your next flight same...is your surgeon awake...is the military protecting you 24/7 THEN you should do the same WORK 24/7, the country is in an Emergency and looking for professional help, not a cage of monkeys. Monkeys are fun to look at and in the wild they work together for the betterment of the troop.
    Another BAD thing is because of your “Walk in a Park”, hopefully it is not a Federal Park, approach many people are either not being paid or having to work for Maybe getting paid LATER, YOU should be treated the same WAITE TO BE PAID till you do your job and that does not mean making Obscene Hand Jesters like something is being done or Bad Mouthing each other!!! Try to do this in a REAL job…you would be looking from the Blacktop for your next job.
    Funny a group of monkeys are known as a Troop and Representatives are becoming to be known as Jokers without an effective punch line…so BOO on you and throw the BUMS out.

    @Robert – You should buy that Huntsman had no control, he's a former Governor and one that suggested there needs to be a third party in the Pres. Elections, which put him in a bit of a social outcast position in the GOP. He doesn't have much political clout at the moment, considering he's not in any elected position.
