If Obama wants to shut down the government rather than delay the individual mandate, that's his choice.
But note that this does not in any way stop ObamaKKKare from going into effect for those who want to purchase the insurance.
So, what's your problem?
News Flash!!! By delaying the individual mandate, fewer people would sign up which in turn would force premiums to go up. That is exactly what Republicans want to happen. They want to make the exchanges less desirable so the Affordable Care Act will fail. They are not fooling anyone.

If Republicans want to shut down the government rather than allow the Affordable Care Act to proceed as legislated, that is their choice but it is not a good one and it will cost them dearly come the next election.

Romans 8 http://biblehub.com/nlt/romans/8.htm

"Therefore, you have no obligation to do what your sinful nature urges you to do. For if you live by its dictates, you will die. But if through the power of the Spirit of GOD you put to death the deeds of your sinful nature, you will live. For all who are led by the Spirit of GOD are children of GOD." vs 12-14

----

History reveals that the advancement of truth comes at a high price, and a majority of people are unwilling to pay the price. It is much more comfortable to remain within the social and religious comforts of fellowship than to follow the Spirit into the desert of rejection where often, you are alone with GOD. The Bible represents people as sheep for good reason. They prefer to flock together. They also tend to follow their leaders (political and religious) without thinking or thoroughly studying matters for themselves. Consider the total sum of religious thought that Hindus, Moslems, Catholics, Jews, Protestants, atheists and pagans believe today. All of these different ideas about GOD came from spiritual leaders who are as blind as the lay people they guide.(Matthew 23:16)

Humanity’s diversity in religious beliefs proves that people are capable of believing anything and everything. Our diversity also proves that our belief systems have nothing to do with Eternal Truth. Even though Catholics and Protestants insist their views come directly from Scripture, a cursory review of Scripture can demonstrate otherwise. Truth is not determined by a majority vote or acceptance. Thoughtfully consider these words: "Truth is not what I believe. Truth is not even what I know. Truth is fact. I may not believe it. I may not know it. That does not change it. It is there nevertheless, waiting to be discovered and believed. Truth does not depend on the unsettled and changing opinions of men. It was truth before it was believed. It remains truth whether it is believed or not. Reason does not originate or create it. It merely discovers it. Consequently, reason is not a source. Truth goes back beyond reason. Others would have us believe that the church is the source of authority, particularly in matters of theology. They are wrong. The church is the product of Truth. It does not originate it. It came into being by accepting Divine Revelation. It is not the source of that revelation. Truth goes beyond the church, it is antecedent to it."

Pathetic Obama Tactics

A US internal revenue service official who was a key figure in the controversy over the tax agency's scrutiny of conservative groups retired on Monday just as an IRS review board was poised to recommend she be fired.

Lois Lerner was at the centre of an uproar that shook the IRS for weeks starting in mid-May after she apologised in public for the tax agency's treatment of political groups with "Tea Party" and other conservative terms in their names.

The individual mandate is an idea from the Heritage Foundation.
Works real well in MA, Rmoney thought it a great idea.
He was right. You just whine.
Ah Yes...the FIRST thing that was shoved to the trash bins on floor (as in to ell with the working class -they don't need no stinkin insurance) when the bill first started across the table.

And now we have this NOT READY for prime time MESS.

(The individual mandate, which Barack Obama opposed during the 2008 Democratic primaries, has never been popular. And the Obama administration's decision to delay the employer mandate by one year handed opponents of the individual mandate an obvious argument to make: If you're going give corporations and big businesses a special break, shouldn't families and individuals get a reprieve, too?)

HELL YES THEY SHOULD receive the SAME damn twinkie dancing WAIVERs too!!!

It will not stand up to any scrutiny, you moron.
Medical technology is the biggest driver in costs.
Fixing old people with hearts, hips, knees, lungs, kidneys, etc.
Advanced imaging and surgical tools make medicine more effective, but far more expensive than ever before.
Tort reform is a stupid idea from another time that was based on pure bullshit. It is a minor contributor to health care costs. People have a right to redress, you commie freak.

House Republicans may appear to observers to be pushing the government toward a shutdown, but that's not even remotely how they see it.

The GOP rank-and-file still believe that the Senate might accept and the White House might sign a one-year delay of Obamacare in exchange for two months of sequester-level spending to briefly stave off a government shutdown.

"How dare you?" Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said when reporters asked how the House would respond when the Senate rejected its offer. He grew angrier as he continued to question how one could assume the bill was dead on arrival in the Democratic-controlled Senate.

"I have never foreseen a government shutdown and I continue not to see a government shutdown," said Rep. Rob Woodall (R-Ga.), who was a senior Hill staffer before being elected to Congress in 2010. "The Senate has plenty of time to deal with this. This is good, common middle ground that is in this package. I think we're gonna get a big bipartisan vote in the House. I think we're gonna get a big vote in the Senate too."

Voters in survey after survey overwhelmingly say Republicans will be to blame for any shutdown. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has repeatedly said that all GOP attempts to attach Obamacare changes to a government funding bill will be rejected out of hand. President Barack Obama has consistently promised a veto.

Yet it hasn't penetrated. House Republicans' inability to recognize the same reality as voters and their opponents has made it virtually impossible to come to a deal.

Yes, it demonstrates the unpopularity of the program to the cretins in America. The lack of enrollment by these people will NOT increase the program deficit. It MAY increase costs for those who are insured because the more that enroll the lower the costs but it won't affect the funding.
The only way someone who doesn't obtain health insurance affects funding of the Affordable Care Act is with the payment of penalties...that actually increases the programs surplus.
Are you calling the poverty-stricken uninsured "cretins"?

That's it.
Iran will not end its nuclear enrichment program.
There is absolutely no reason Iran end its nuclear enrichment program. They the same rights as any other nation to enrich uranium as part of a civilian nuclear energy and medicine program.

"We do not need military-grade uranium. That's a certainty and we will not move in that direction," Zarif said. "Having an Iran that does not have nuclear weapons, is not just your goal, it's first and foremost our goal."

Zarif has presented an olive branch and we should welcome it.

Correct. ObamaKKKare forces healthy people to overpay for insurance to subsidize the 5% of the population that consumes more than 50% of medical expenses.
