No, it is the Pee Party that is trying to get Obama to do their bidding and he isn't playing their game. It's such a pity that the reslugs in Congress have put their political agenda before the welfare of the people. LOSERS.

It makes total sense you would attempt to downgrade someone who's environmentally superior to you, when you try and act like your concerned about said issue. Typical limousine liberal chimp...
BTW; the unibomber targeted leftist phags. Wish he was still free & active, and that there were 10,000 more just like him. I would never do that tho (dare to dream)....
"Environmentally superior". Hmmm. Guess if you live under a rock, I would have to agree.

It is a FACT that if anyone shuts down the government, it will be the obstructionist Republicans who forced Boehner (against his better judgment) to bow to conservative demands and strip out money for the Affordable Care Act from the spending bill. Simple as that.
Stripping money from the ACA will not shut the gov't down.

Yes, other co-pays will still be in effect like they always have been. Even now, Medicaid recipients have co-pays. Difference is...people will be more inclined to see a doctor for preventative care rather than wait for an emergency. Early detection is the key to good health.
However, IMO, the most important provision of the Affordable Care Act is that, "starting in January, insurance companies will no longer be able to deny individuals coverage based on pre-existing conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure. What’s more, people with pre-existing conditions can’t be charged more based on their health status or issued a policy that excludes coverage for their particular condition, practices that remain common today." If it hadn't been for the stonewalling reslugs, this provision would have been implemented years ago. Reslugs should be ashamed of their party who cares more about warmongering than the welfare of our citizens.
Why should medical insurance be the only type of insurance that does not base the premium on the risk presented by the insured?

People with pre-existing conditions are just like drivers with a history of auto accidents or traffic tickets.

LOL. Your beloved Boehner said, "the key to any leadership job is to listen.” Obama is doing a great job of listening and adjusting circumstances accordingly.
Beloved?

Boehner is a fool. Always has been, always will be. He may as well switch parties and get it over with.

Obama can listen and adjust all he wants. In the end he won't bend an inch unless it's to temporarily stifle a group of his lackeys, like he recently did with the unions that suddenly wanted nothing to do with Obamacare.

"real dumb"
You are dumb. The above post from a moocher who has made a career of mooching off the government, first in line to get all the freebies. "John Galt" is correct. The constitution calls for a national defense. The problem is not the constitution, the problem is in the hands of lousy congress folks who enable the fraud. How about these examples of government fraud;
- Food stamps, use has doubled in 4 years and this under the economy directed by your hero, the girl messiah president nobama
- nobamakare a program more than 60% of American's don't like and don't want, a program expected to add a trillion dollars to the debt on 10 years

Did you read Obamacare? All of it? Who told you what is in it?
who told you what was in it? Sarah Palin?

well sure she did....

Two unlikely supporters of death panels: Palin and Gingrich

The language Palin used to promote Healthcare Decisions Day is nearly identical to the language used in HR 3200, language that she now decries as promoting “death panels” that will murder her family. I think the term we’re looking for is “cognitive dissonance.”
