The government shutdown has entered its second week with both parties failing to reach an agreement that will end the shutdown. It is sad that this has dragged on for so long. Obama Care is at the heart of the problem and the Republicans are prepared to continue with the shut down because of their opposition to this health care plan. At the end of the day there will be winners and losers. The question is who stand to lose the most? This is Obama’s second term in office; he will not seek re-election. The Republicans on the other hand will seek to head the next government. Will the voting public see their present course of actions justified and in the best interest of the country. Will they be able to convince the thousands of men and women who are at this moment unsure of their pay checks to vote for them.
There are thousands of people who presently have no form of health insurance and see Obama Care as their only hope of getting insured. Will the Republicans be able to convince these people that they acted in their best interest and get their votes? The Republicans need to be careful that come the next election their present actions do not come back to bite them in the ass.
