Credit where due -- I watched Rep Steve King distract a park police officer while vets and staffers knocked down the fences here. #shutdown
Republican Congressman Steve King of Iowa noted: "This is a White House decision...It doesn't cost any money to keep this open, but it costs money to guard it to keep people from coming here. These have always been open air monuments, the Vietnam Mall, the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial, the Korean Memorial...we don't have money to run the government, but we have enough money to keep guards to keep people from walking in here to see the honor that's been earned here by people who are here today."

Yes, another example of Freedom vs. Tyranny.
Yesterday Republicans in the House of Representatives sent a Continuing Resolution to the Senate to keep the government fully funded and open. There were two amendments to the resolution.
The first amendment postponed the individual mandate for one year. In other words, Americans would have the choice of either going to an ObamaCare exchange and getting insurance or not going, without the fear of the IRS coming after them and being fined by the mandate. Americans would have freedom to choose.
The second amendment made members of Congress subject to ObamaCare just like the rest of us.
President Obama said he would veto the resolution. Democrat Senate Majority Leader said that it was dead on arrival and the 54 Democrats in the Senate voted against the resolution and the 46 Republicans in the Senate voted for the resolution to keep the government open.
Obama and the Democrats want take away our freedoms. They don't want to allow us to have the freedom choose, while they exempt themselves from their law. They will shutdown the government, spend taxpayer money to close monuments of our founding fathers and memorials to our veterans, all so they can keep their power and take way our liberty.
Remember, while the government is shutdown, Obama has vowed to keep ObamaCare exchanges open "no matter what." Our veterans, the principles of our founding fathers and our freedoms mean nothing to this man.
This is Freedom vs. Tyranny.
Call your Representative and Senators and tell them that you have had enough and to keep up the fight for freedom.
