You and your right wing friends have got the facts wrong (wow, what a surprise!). It's Cruz and his tea party wackos that want the government shut down so they can repeal the Affordable Health Care Act. These guys frankly take stupid to an entirely new level.
Ted Cruz: The dumbest “genius” ever! - Salon.com
God, could we possibly be so lucky as to have this intellectual giant as the Republican Presidential nominee in 2016?
Luck won't have anything to do with it. Ted is beating on his war drums right now--telling people he is going to get rid of the IRS; however, what he doesn't tell those Tea Party aficionados is how he is going to do it and how he is going to keep the government going without cash. Meanwhile just him beating on his war drums should get him in the Primary and drag Rand Paul in to the fray. :cuckoo::roll:You and your right wing friends have got the facts wrong (wow, what a surprise!).

A shutdown can happen when a legislative body (including the legislative power of veto by the executive) cannot agree on a budget financing its government programs for a pending fiscal year. In the absence of appropriated funds, the government discontinues providing non-essential services at the beginning of the affected fiscal year. Government employees who provide essential services, often referred to as "essential employees," are required to continue working.
Yeah, I think we all understand that it would be Congress that would do it by not passing the budget. But of course that won't happen because there are actually adults in charge of the U.S. Senate.
Obama would welcome a government shutdown, but not for reasons that have anything to do with budgets or healthcare.
Obama's role is to disrupt the progress of the United States and to create as much social order breakdown as possible. Obama has so much hatred for this county and the historical American culture that anything resulting in dissention, confusion and ultimately great harm is viewed as a positive.
Political maneuvering as we have seen with past differences between presidents and congress is always subordinated to Obama's personal agenda of hatred and destruction, coupled with angering traditionalists and white people in general.
That is why there seems to be so little consistency and reason in his actions both here and worldwide.
