The problem is we're still a two-party system and the other side always gets something in return. It's the art of compromising.
The Republicans offered to raise the debt ceiling for 6 weeks if they just got two things in return - Congress' special exemptions removed and a one year delay in the individual mandate.
Obama loves his ugly baby and won't let anyone touch it. Not even in the give and take of political compromise. It's his and his alone.
Congress has no special exemptions you goddamned liar! But let's say, for the sake of argument they did. Such an exemption would have to be passed by the House. Who has a strangle hold on House legislation stupid? The Republicans. So they would be wanting something removed that they thought was a good idea and voted for in the first place. Do you see how your asinine lie is coming apart at the seams? You're just not a very good liar Carol.
What you keep forgetting or willfully ignoring is that this "ugly baby" along with the individual mandate was originally a Republican idea.
Business made a reasonable case that they needed more time to comply with their part of the law. That's not the case with the individual mandate.

The issue is not outsourcing but Sebelius thinking the Medicare and Medicaid agency had the ability and staff to connect the various agencies into it. This was highly complex undertaking and there were major concerns that the staff lacked the skills to do so. Turns out these concerns were well founded.

"officials who planned ObamaCare blame their Web engineers, but they're passing the buck. ObamaCare is a hugely complicated approach to addressing problems in health care that have simpler solutions.

Software glitches are no surprise with such a complex system. For example, signing up uses a Byzantine process to check if a family is entitled to a subsidy, requiring data from dozens of federal and state agencies using databases built on different technology platforms."

In a very real sense, the Texas Republican who is most responsible for the current stalemate may not be Ted Cruz, but George W. Bush. In 2005, Republicans held the White House. They held both houses of Congress. Republican appointees entered the Supreme Court. The GOP enjoyed a 55-45 Senate majority.

Aside from the confirmation of John Roberts and Samuel Alito, conservatives have very little to show for this period of unified Republican control of the federal government. And after the Supreme Court upheld Obamacare with Roberts’s vote, that confirmation has begun to look like a mixed blessing at best.

Even before Bush, the Republican Congress was more interested in pork barrel, earmarks, and K Street favors than cutting government spending. After Bush, discretionary spending grew faster than it did under Bill Clinton. The biggest new entitlement program since LBJ’s Great Society was added to the federal budget. Another Cabinet-level department was created.

Level-headed Republicans would counter that the worst of this happened a decade or more ago.(Indeed, that is the timeline for No Child Left Behind, the Medicare prescription drug benefit, and worst of all the Iraq war.) Denny Hastert and Tom DeLay are gone. Why take it all out on John Boehner and Mitch McConnell?

But the Wall Street bailout wasn’t ten years ago. Neither was the decision to renege on the $100 billion in spending cuts Republicans promised in 2010. It was fairly obvious that many Republicans hoped the Tea Party would follow past waves of conservative activism: it would help the GOP win elections and without being overly concerned about the process of actually governing.

But the Tea Party activists were not satisfied. Instead they made an ever-growing list of demands that the Republicans—controlling just one house of Congress—were in no position to deliver on. In the 1990s, Newt Gingrich demonstrated the limits of trying to govern the country from the House. And he had a Republican Senate and a Democratic president willing to play ball on some conservative issues.

As the Republicans produced fewer meaningful conservative policy outcomes, they spoke in ever shriller tones about the stakes of each election. Large parts of the base believed them, but then did a surprising thing: they began to ask questions when Republicans didn’t govern accordingly.

So when even so conservative a Republican as Tom Coburn says the Obamacare defunding gambit is unlikely to work, conservatives see another sellout on the way. When Cruz wants to fight, no one has the credibility to argue that avoiding this battle is a matter of prudence, not surrender.

When Republicans had power, they did little for conservatives. Now conservatives expect much from Republicans, even when they have little power.

The good news is conservative activists are keeping Republicans from repeating the Bush-league mistakes of the past. The bad news is they are making a whole set of new ones.

Canadian officials fired IT firm behind troubled Obamacare website

Canadian provincial health officials last year fired the parent company of CGI Federal, the prime contractor for the problem-plagued Obamacare health exchange websites, the Washington Examiner has learned.

CGI Federal’s parent company, Montreal-based CGI Group, was officially terminated in September 2012 by an Ontario government health agency after the firm missed three years of deadlines and failed to deliver the province’s flagship online medical registry.

The online registry was supposed to be up and running by June 2011.

Officials at the U.S. government's Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services awarded six technology contracts worth $87 million to CGI Federal for Obamacare website work, according to the U.S. Government Accountability Office.

The CMS officials refused to say if federal officials knew of its parent company’s IT failure in Canada when awarding the six contracts.

CGI Federal built Obamacare’s Healthcare.gov , which went live Oct. 1 but has since experienced multiple technical problems, including crashes, refusal to load and sign-on, or to provide accurate information.

Obamacare requires all Americans to register for health care coverage no later than six months from Oct. 1. Officials in the White House and the Department of Health and Human Services, which manages Obamacare, declined to say how many people succeeded in registering through Healthcare.gov .

CGI Federal also is the prime contractor for state health exchange websites in Colorado, Vermont, Hawaii and Massachusetts. Three of those states also reported significant website glitches.

2013: Social Security, will cost about $875 billion; health care programs, including Medicare and Medicaid, will cost $882 billion; defense, including the Departments of Defense and State, and the Veterans Administration, will cost about $856 billion. Welfare costs will come in at $430 billion.

Well I'm not a republican but I have an answer. Get rid of most of these taxes, cut the size of government till you don't have to borrow money to run it, and then cut it some more. Teach the people, all people, to be self reliant and not depend on government. Why do you libtards think the government is the only answer. My guess is 98% of the people of this country could take care of themselves if the government got out of the way. The first move would be get rid of the income tax, medicare tax, SSI tax. But NOOOOOO we can't have people not needing the federal government. Your democrat's tax and spend policies are what is wrong with this country.
