As lawmakers contemplate passing the continuing resolution and raising the debt ceiling, and fret about a government shutdown, The Associated Press says it is worth remembering, “Social Security checks will still go out.

Xiupeng Chen's insight:

 There are something that I wanna say. At first I noticed all the decitions from the article are made by House of Representetive and President. Through out the article I only have one question left: are these policies including Obamacare and Clean Energy plan really worth it? Of course you can never tell in a year, or even 10 years. As I said in another scoop, I really hope these policy will finally work out. However, the last comment on this is, are we turning into European Countries now? Heavy tax and the best health care programs in the world. AMERICAN DREAM COULD BE KILLED BY FREE LUNCH.

Giddy-up for another messy day of Obamacare -- And what really happens when the government shuts down.

The best way in this case is for each parties to leave their egos and come to their sences.If some thing has to be done then they should do it with the given time.The parties should remember that they are there to serve the people and the obamacare helps the american people very much.passing the bill would be the right thing to do because there is many things at stake.the bills have to be paid no matter what too.

In the event of a government shutdown, the United States government will not actually be coming to an end. The term "shutdown" simply means that the two major political parties have been unable to come to a compromise, and are now, in essence, giving up on coming to an agreement. This type of collapse shows the rest of the world that, in spite of the legacy that the United States has worked to build over the past two centuries, the United States government is weak, and cannot take care of itself or its people.

President Obama pledged to end partisanship, but instead has exacerbated it. He recently accused House Republicans of being extortionists for opposing a raise in the debt ceiling and wanting to defund Obamacare.

Xiupeng Chen's insight:

From this articl I learned the main reason for our goverment shut down and for most of the Americans they might be suffering from this in a way that not really significant. I will say that add another hugh debt in to our economic mob is not a good idea, the artical indicated that why would we have another debt after 16 trillon? President is giving our big promise and nobody will know how is that going. I hope obama(which is the main reason for all these stuff)will worth a while.

This article talks about President Obama's condescending nature. Seven years ago when he was a Senator, Obama wanted to lower the debt ceiling, and now he is arguing that we need to expand it. This author of this article even brings up the question of shutting down the government and then "re-opening it" because it is going downhill, due to condescending acts like those made by Obama.

Wow...when I read this i laughed a little. I know the article is biased but i didnt really care once i read what it had to say. The articles states that when Obama was a senator and George W. Bush was president and there were talks of raising the debt ceiling, he was completely against it and said, "the fact that we have to raise the debt ceiling shows bad leadership." This excerpt is completely redundant because he switched his position around which shows his incompetence and indecisiveness. 

April Mai's curator insight, September 25, 2013 8:05 PM

It is obvious that this article is very biased. The author simply reverts back to Obama as a senator and quotes all his promises and suggestions that probably convinced the people to vote for him. Basically I see the author pointing out Obama as a leader who turned back on his words.
