Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) had some choice words for Republicans on Thursday, hurling an expletive to describe the government shutdown stalemate.

In an interview with Slate, McDermott said the GOP “can’t figure out how to admit” that they’ve lost the battle on Obamacare.

“Why would House Democrats give away what the Supreme Court and the 2012 electorate didn’t?,” McDermott said. ‘You can’t say, OK, you get half of Obamacare—this isn’t a Solomonic decision. So we sit here until they figure out they f*ck*n’ lost.”

A HuffPost/YouGov poll released Saturday shows that both parties are facing blame for the government shutdown, which stretched into its fifth day. According to the survey, 25 percent of Americans see Republicans and Democrats as being equally at fault. On party lines, 36 percent point a finger squarely at Republicans and 33 percent place more blame on President Barack Obama and the Democrats.

On Saturday, the House unanimously passed legislation giving federal employees backed pay for the time they were out of work due to the shutdown. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said this was a “cruel” message to those workers.

“What the Republicans in the House are telling — because they’re the ones that set the agenda — all these federal workers [is] … even though we don’t like federal workers and we haven’t given you a raise in three years, what we’re going to do now is give you a paid vacation,” Reid said.

    Ilex thank you for the info. I leave outside of Seattle. He’s is loopy and quite entrenched.

    Well, they don’t pay their income taxes either, so let’s call it even. This guy is a hoot, he still thinks or says there is more than one party in DC. It’ all about the money.
    He was born in Chicago IL (that’s the fist red flag), became a medical doctor in Illinois, was in the navy and then worked as a psychiatrist in Zaire(most likely a LDC at the time) for state department employees and USAID.(The UNITED NATIONS). So, he’s part of the problem!!!

    Oh, please…. pot calling the kettle black…

    And still we have the *actors* fulfilling their roles as dividers and conquerors…

    I suggest they keep it up so we as Americans will finally realize all the *services* we DON’T need and we can return government to the business of taking care of basic infrastructure and NOT continually getting involved in people’s lives.
