This really puts it all in context.
Harry Reid and Senate Democrats really just want to shut down the government...and KEEP it shut down, in what is quickly becoming a vain attempt to try to shift the blame from Obama's falling fortunes and polling numbers by trying to demonize Republicans in the House.

The republicans are willing to fund the NIH and other things during the shutdown,the democrats said no they aren`t going to approve funding for anything until the shutdown is over.
How do you even negotiate with people who hold children with cancer as hostages? They obviously have no compassion for anyone or anything they only care about themselves.
try reading what he said, he wasn't doing anything like that, he was pointing out why anyone gets to cherry pick who gets help over someone else.
basically, why one groups gets treatment over another when they all need help. that is what the republicans want to do.
Hey, Einstein! Reid and the Senate didn't shut down the governemt, Congress and the ego-inspired Tea Party/GOP did. You want to take quotes out of context, fine, go ahead. But get your fact straight. Reid is saying that individual exemptions are not going to be made, which would only lessen the effect the GOPs arrogant refusal to cooperate is having on their reputaion. What Reid said has NOTHING to do with denying treatment to a sick girl. The GOP's shut down of the government has EVERYTHING to do with them not giving a crap about sick girls, healthy boys or anyone else that isn't in the pocket of big business, like the Tea Party, and the GOP. You guys would be funny if you weren't so GD wrong.
