Yep, they are at it again, the government is shutting down, both sides of the isle are bickering, and who pays the price, as usual, we do. All because the Republicans are obsessed with the Affordable Care Act.
House Republicans have put it up for vote just under 40 times and every time they have lost the vote. But that doesn't stop them from wanting to provide healthcare to more Americans so they can spend more money invading other countries. So now, Republicans in the House of Representatives are refusing to fund the government unless the democrats defund the Affordable Care Act.
But don't worry about Republicans. Congress still gets paid in a government shutdown. It's just everyone else who works for the government who doesn't get paid.
Good job America for voting these tea-baggers into office. Thanks for assisting with bringing the US economy down instead of up.
