Then there is the fact that this doesn't allow more spending, but pays the bills already passed by this "parent". So, the "parent" is saying, I won't pay the bill I already approved unless you give me what I want.

And then there is the pesky fact that the president won the presidential race over an opponent who specifically said he would end Obamacare.

So yes, Republicans, intentionally passing non starter bills, operating in bad faith and wasting tax payer money, will rightly be blamed for any government shut down.
I honestly was hoping you wouldn't respond because well.. I am getting tired of explaining shit to you. PLEASE take some fundamental classes in logic and reading comprehension, it will do us all a world of good.

#1 You bring up the "PRESIDENT WON! THAT MEANS HE IS IN CHARGE OF ALL THINGS!" argument. You may also want to take a few govt classes while you are at it.

#2 The CURRENT parent did NOT already approve of the spending.. that was the shitty previous "parent." The current parent is saying they will pay all previous bills and keep the credit cards current if the child stops buying new beenie babies. That is all. But just like the spoiled child who once got his way... you have to throw a n tantrum and scream that this "bad parent" is going to make you starve to death and get bad credit... simply because you refuse to stop buying crap they don't approve of.

The POWER OF THE PURSE is a bitch... and it resides with the HOUSE. You can't hate that all you want, you can ignore it and (like the media) slant the argument. BUT the reality is, it's a lie. This is exactly how our govt was put together to work.
