Republicans aren’t talking about about repealing ObamaCare any more. It appears that is no longer the current reason for the shut down. Now their widdle feelings are hurt, because their temper tantrum has not gotten them what they could earn in Congress, couldn’t win in 2012, and couldn’t get from the Republican dominated Supreme Court. They think they’re getting no respect.
The great government shutdown of 2013 is about Obamacare and budget priorities, but it also is about respect.
In short, conservative House Republicans don’t think they get enough of it from President Barack Obama and the Senate.
"Republicans are now in a position where they don’t want to cave in because it sets a bad precedent that the Senate would be somewhat dictating how the House runs," GOP Rep. Michael Grimm of New York said this week.
Conservative Rep. Marlin Stutzman of Indiana went further, telling the Washington Examiner that "we’re not going to be disrespected."
"We have to get something out of this," he said. "And I don’t know what that even is."… [emphasis added]

Rachel Maddow shows from history and from today how Republican whining shows just how thoroughly incompetent they are.
Unfortunately for Rabin, Israel has Republican equivalents back then. The biggest mistake was not to Newter Newt in 1995. What hubris to think he deserved to be included with three Presidents. This shutdown is all about a Republican tantrum that voters rejected them in 2012. Just like Barney Frank said then, Republicans are punishing the country. They don’t knows what it is, but they have to get something
Earth to Republicans! Earth to Republicans!! Hello? Is there anyone under those tin-foil hats? The CR is NOT about respect for you. It’s about the respect millions you are harming. You have already received far more respect than you deserve, but if you want even MORE respect, EARN it! Stop the terrorism, respect the American people, pass a clean CR, and agree to pay for what YOU already spent.
