Would like to see this for a couple of weeks, so people realize that we are NOT dependent on government.  It would be an eye opener for many, like sequester - did you notice? I didn't and I don't know anyone who did.

Senate Democrats on Tuesday rejected negotiating with the House on  government funding, leaving no clear path for ending the federal  shutdown that  began overnight.
The Senate voted 54-46 to table a House request for a  conference committee on a continuing resolution (CR), marking the third time  that Democrats have voted down legislation from the lower chamber since  Monday.

"The government is closed," Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said.  "All over America federal  employees are getting furloughs this morning …  because of the  irrationality that is going on in the other side of the  Capitol."

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Democrats had been  rooting for a shutdown all along.
"Democratic leaders in Congress  finally have their prize — a government shutdown that no one seems to want but  them," McConnell said. "With just hours left to go Democrats voted again and  again to reject reasonable legislation. … They don’t even want to talk about  it."

House GOP leaders have tried several tactics to defund or change the  implementation of ObamaCare in the government funding bill. The Senate has  rejected them each time, resulting in a shutdown for all but the "essential"  functions of government.
The House made its last move early Tuesday  morning, passing  a resolution asking for a formal conference between the House and Senate  on the continuing resolution (CR).
Senate Democrats promised they would  kill the motion because they did not want to negotiate with a “gun to our head.”  Reid and other Democrats said if the House would first pass a “clean” funding  bill, then they would be willing to enter negotiations on a longer-term  measure.
Moments after the shutdown deadline passed on Tuesday morning,  Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said the House could send “100 other doodads and  gismos” but the Senate would reject every one until the House passed a clean CR.

It's unclear where the fight will go from here, with both sides digging in  for the first government shutdown since 1997 and the deadline for a debt-ceiling  increase looming in mid-October.
Democrats said Monday that they've  already compromised with Republicans by agreeing to the sequester funding levels  that lower chamber set for the stopgap, which many liberals opposed.

But Republicans have insisted on changes to ObamaCare, and Speaker John  Boehner (R-Ohio) has essentially ruled out a clean funding bill. 

“The House has made its position known very clearly,” Boehner said late  Tuesday morning. “We believe that we should fund the government and we think  there ought to be basic fairness for all Americans under ObamaCare."
