Oh, those zany Republicans - Once more!

The Reps say “The American people don’t want a government shutdown, and they don’t want Obamacare,” aka, the Affordable Care Act, aka Romney Care (See Massachusetts health care plan under Romney).
So their answer to this contrived issue is to shut down the government    But oh, not for certain things. Just "non-essential services" like Parks, but you may be ok if you're in the military. Probably prison guards get to stay on the job, but haven't seen anything about that.
The mail will get through (Yay for the Postal Union!), but don't try to buy a house. 
Oh and about that pesky debt ceiling? As CNN reports:
                "Like the potential shutdown, this is also a Washington-manufactured                   crisis. And it too is being used for leverage to undermine Obamacare." 
And guess what most of "Obamacare" is funded from taxes, fees and other programs that will not shut down. So talk about your manufactured crisis!  This is all for show, and more political posturing by the GOP.
Oh, those zany Republicans!
