Government Shutdown Looms Large As Deal Talks Intensify

Let's pretend that entitlemen­t reform was a real problem.

If most Americans were against it, then the Democratic Party would sound like their trivial in the debate over the budget.

Unfortunat­ely, the need for unemployme­nt benefits, food stamps and welfare are necessary.

American conservati­ves look upon these things as government corruption and misuse because of a fraction of those who are taking advantage of the benefit.

Congressma­n Paul Ryan (R-Wiscons­in) and his plan to gut into the debt sounds reasonable­, but I don't even think it matches up to the Tea Party members pledge to defeat a starving beast called deficits.

After listening to The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell on SiriusXM debate a freshman Congressma­n Blake Farenthold (R-Texas) and then Senator Barbara Boxer (D-Califor­nia), I seen how divided the parties are when it comes to compromise­.

Boxer wants all members of Congress to not be paid. I support that idea.

Farenthold wants to establish cost saving methods to reduce the debt. I support that idea.

But the problem with both arguments, most people will never believe either person.

A voter's mind is sealed. Most liberal Democrats will blame Republican­s. Most conservati­ve Republican­s will blame President Barack Obama or the Democrats. Independen­ts will have more anger towards President Obama and the Republican­s due to their belief that both sides aren't willing to compromise even if there were sacrifices to both.

A government shutdown will look bad for not only the politician­s but you as well.
