Calls on colleagues to negotiate....
It may be falling on deaf ears, but Oklahoma 4th District Congressman Tom Cole is calling on his Democratic colleagues to support delaying part of Obamacare to get the government back up and running again.
Rep. Cole is calling on the House and Senate to begin negotiations to end the impasse.
He's calling the shutdown a big mistake and that House Speaker John Boehner's made several reasonable offers to the Democratic-controlled Senate.
Today marks the second day of the partial government shutdown surrounding a temporary spending plan that House Republicans maintain should have a provision to delay the start of Obamacare for a year.
The Democratic-controlled Senate has said no to each House-backed plan.
