Washington politicians are playing a dangerous game of political chicken. The GOP's plan to eliminate funding for ObamaCare plan is going nowhere so far.
Obama does not seem to care to negotiate with Republicans and Democrats are not going to throw away their healthcare achievement.
Republicans have been threatening to shut down the government or default on the national debt, but the president does not seem to care, politically speaking.
The GOP appears to be giving Democrats fodder for keeping a majority in The US Senate and possibly taking back the The US House of Representatives in 2014.
Is your family planning a vacation in one of our national parks? Do you need your passport renewed? These are just a couple of things you will have to do without. The real bad news is that our economy will tank, US government workers will be furloughed...etc.
Meanwhile, the game continues to become increasingly dangerous as the clock ticks and the days drag on.
