It's time for all to negotiate


The shutdown is a civics lesson in government in how government was intended but with a snafu — one party apparently thinks it is beyond negotiations.

The president: “I will not negotiate until the end of the government shutdown.” We hear the same from Sen. Reid. The Republicans, meanwhile, have sent dozens of continuing resolutions to keep other priorities open — war memorials, military pay, treatment of children with cancer among others and the Democrat response is, “No!”
