What's really happening in Washington as the shutdown showdown continues and the deadline approaches?
Here's how it goes:Harry Reid will likely shut down the government to keep forcing ObamaCare on the American people.
ObamaCare is succeeding in some things – it's successfully destroying the 40 hour work week, costing people their jobs, and causing people to lose access to their doctors.
Republicans are leading. They've sent Harry Reid and Senate Democrats a bill that will keep the government open and delay ObamaCare by one year.
But rather than admit that ObamaCare has been an absolute failure and allow for a one year delay of the entire law, Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi would rather shut down the government.
The Democrats can prevent this.
But they don't seem to want to.
