Republicans have made a very reasonable compromise offer to Obama.

The ball is now in his court.

10. Under Obamacare, "75 percent of small businesses now say they are going to be forced to either fire workers or cut their hours." Pants on Fire.
U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., July 25, 2013 in a FoxNews.com op-ed
Suggestions that business are laying off workers because of the health care law have so far proven to be largely unfounded. Most small businesses -- those with fewer than 50 employees -- do not have to provide health insurance to their employees.(In fact, some very small businesses with fewer than 25 employees may qualify for tax credits under the law.) The claim here that 75 percent of small business were reducing their workforce was based on a misreading of a study from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The study actually found that less than 10 percent of small businesses said they will be forced to reduce their workforce or cut hours. We rated the claim Pants on Fire.

Surprise!!! I disagree.
That is not to say that it won't need some revamping. All in all, it is an improvement over what we have had in the past... at least for those with low incomes, children who age out of foster care and those with pre-existing conditions. Us? Not so much but I don't mind making a little sacrifice if it helps Americans.

Nearly half the people in Congress have worked, and are still working, against Obamacare. Senator Vitter’s amendment proposes to cut their pay in order to make a point — a point based on a misunderstanding.

The DemoKKKrats wrote the ObamaKKKare bill which moved Congressional employees into the exchanges without providing for any premium support. Sure, they screwed up, but that's life. Obama has illegally ordered the premium support.

Statistics and headlines say you're wrong about that too.
Fact: Major companies are cutting back to part-time.
Can you deny it?
Fact: No one understands why some are exempt and others are not.
Can you explain that?
Fact: No one knows how it will be implemented or how the IRS is going to manage it.
Do you know?
Fact: No one knows how much it's going to cost in the long run and who is going to pay for it.
Do you?
Fact: It's scaring a lot of people - the significant majority as a matter of fact.

OBAMA IS CAESAR WITH AMERICANS AND NEVILLE CHAMBERLAIN WITH EVERYONE ELSE.

Anybody wanting to lampoon the Obama presidency is out of luck — there is no way to top the real thing. From being outmaneuvered by Russia to erasing red lines in Syria and getting snubbed by Iran, September was the cruelest month.
That’s only half the bad news. For as small as the president looked abroad, he looked downright childish at home.

He is following his failure to negotiate successfully on the world stage with a refusal to negotiate at all at home. His message to Republicans on both the debt ceiling and ObamaCare is the same: nyet, nyet.

Call him confused about who the enemy is.

The dynamic is startling. The more the world pushes Barack Obama around, the more he pushes back at home. It reminds me of a Mort Sahl joke from the Cold War: Every time the Soviets lock up an American, we retaliate by locking up an American.

And so Vladimir Putin and his evil spawn in Syria and Iran can mess with Obama all day long, but House Speaker John Boehner can’t get the time of day from him.

Our president is Caesar here and Chamberlain there. That is the real Obama Doctrine.

It’s no way to run a superpower, but then that is the point. It is inconceivable that Obama is as INCOMPETENT as he looks.

It has to be intentional.

Seen that way, the method to his madness is frighteningly clear:

His abdication of global leadership is a direct corollary to his continuing expansion of the domestic state apparatus. No matter the world crisis, it takes a back seat, if it’s even allowed on the bus.

The stirring rhetoric about Assad being the new Hitler after he used chemical weapons came and went as though it was just a misunderstanding. In a flash, we became his partner in pretending that he’s going to surrender those weapons. Maybe the Butcher of Damascus will put a puppy under every Christmas tree, too.

Iran’s mad mullahs must get a hoot out of toying with our president. They kill our soldiers, export terrorism and threaten to nuke Israel, and our response is to grovel for talks. Obama plays the Washington Generals to their Harlem Globetrotters.

Back at home, each day brings more debt, more regulations on industry and more crackdowns on American institutions and individuals that buck the administration.

Last week alone, coal-fired plants and JPMorgan’s Jamie Dimon both learned that Obama is their boss, and don’t forget it.

The ObamaCare MESS is especially telling. Most Americans still don’t want it and although there are obvious problems with key elements, Obama refuses to consider legislative changes.

He pushes executive power beyond the envelope to delay provisions and grant waivers, implementing the law at his leisure. But the bipartisan group of 75 senators who want to eliminate the medical-device tax because it’s a job and innovation killer can’t get a hearing.

Too slowly but surely, the public is growing wise.

Polls show Obama underwater on every major issue, including the economy, the debt and foreign policy. Gallup finds his approval stands at 44 percent, against 49 percent disapproval.

Here’s a finding that must drive him nuts. A Reason-Rupe poll asked people to compare Obama’s handling of foreign policy to George W. Bush’s. The results: 32 percent preferred Obama, 32 percent preferred Bush and 32 percent said they were the same.

Those numbers say Dear Leader is on a path to early lame-duckhood, which explains his choice to finish the week.

The “HAVE TELEPROMPTER, WILL TRAVEL” PRESIDENT hit the road to be with his base — a college crowd.

The rainbow PROPS of CHEERING ADOLESCENTS laughed as he made fun of Republicans and nodded approval as he stretched truth past the breaking point. He accused the GOP of trying to “blackmail” him and basked in the students’ adoration.

Meanwhile, Russia, Iran and Syria safely plot their next moves against America.

So, you can't name all of these middle class taxes in the ACA.
Why is that? Is it you don't know?
There are too many taxes to name, but the biggest ObamaKKKare hit on the middle class is loss of jobs and loss of medical insurance.

The dispute has its origin in the debate over the law in 2010. Republican senator Chuck Grassley suggested an amendment intended to make Democrats balk: Members of Congress and their staff would have to buy their insurance from the health-care exchanges.

Let's start over, Lily. You can't that easily and flippantly get away with answering the serious questions I posed to you.

Do you deny major companies are cutting back to part-time?
If you do, prove it's not true.

Can you explain why some are exempt and others are not?
If yes, please explain.

Do you know how it will be implemented or how the IRS is going to manage it?
If yes, please tell the rest of us.

Do you know how much it's going to cost in the long run and who is going to pay for it?
If yes, show the figures.

If you aren't convinced the unknowns aren't scaring a lot of people, explain why the majority are against it.

In 2003 after witnessing Saddam Hussein's take down Libya's Gaddafi gave up his WMDs and nuclear weapons program in order to live out his years as a peaceful member of the world community. Eight years later President Obama under the guise of a NATO no-fly zone had the United States air force spearheading the destruction of Libya's army, navy, and air force.
