It's notable that the democrats are blaming the republicans for the shutdown, yet seem to be voting against the resolutions to suspend rules, resolutions which would allow funding of portions of the government. If they are against the shutdown, why do they prolong it in the areas proposed for funding in the joint resolutions being voted on? It seems more like the republicans are trying to fund the government minus the parts they don't like, but the majority of democrats want all or nothing and don't really care about what happens. If republicans try to fund parks, and democrats reject it when it doesn't include obamacare, how can they blame republicans for the unfunded parks?
