The GOP-controlled House passed a bill that included continuing funding government essentials including state parks. Harry Reid rejected it. Further, Obama & Co. decided it was worth it to spend more money shutting down and blocking access to the DC WWII memorial, federal waters for fishermen, etc. in a temper tantrum. Then they have the gall to blame Republicans.
Currently, the ONLY party and entity right now trying to establish some sense of fiscal responsibility is the GOP-controlled House. This is irrespective of trying to delay Obamacare from being enacted on individuals for a year. Not that Obama & the Democrats don't already have plenty of exemptions/exceptions in that horrible law to begin with.
