Democrats & Republicans Agree... To Disagree

WASHINGTON D.C.— There's still no agreement between the two political parties, and now it seems the Democrats and Republicans can't even seem to agree on what to disagree.

Republican House Speaker John Boehner Friday morning said the biggest issue was spending cuts.

Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid said negotiators have agreed to $38 billion in spending cuts, but a fight over federal dollars for Planned Parenthood is blocking the deal.

“There's only one reason we do not have an agreement yet,” said Rep. Boehner. “And that issue is spending. We're close to a resolution on the policy issues. But, I think the American people deserve to know when will the White House and will Senate Democrats get serious about cutting spending.”

Without an agreement by midnight, the government won't have a budget to operate.

“The issue does not deal with the numbers,” said Sen. Harry Reid. “Good for you to try to switch the debate. It has nothing to do with numbers. It has everything to do with women's health. That is the only issue left undone when we left the White House last night.”

I am appalled at our lawmakers. It appears that instead of trying to find a solution to the budget problem this has become an abortion debate. There are platforms and forums for that issue - the budget crisis should not be part of it. I grew up as an "army brat" my daughter's husband was in the military, my first husband and I worked for the government and it sickens me that our troops that fight for our freedom, our lives, our liberty are the ones the most in jeopardy by thes childish antics

This has to be the cheapest, over acted sopa opera of all time. Jaime Oliver´s Food Revolution has a clear lead on the add on tv. So please, never talk trash about Mexican, Venezuelan, Colombian or any low budget latin Telenovelas.

how dare our elective officals even think of not paying our military. I think in the next election we should go to our kindergardens our children know what time outs are and so do my dogs and they listen
