Lesson over.
I agree, but since we're dealing with dysfunctional semi-literate megalomaniacs from the right, we can use the term, "extortion" if they wish...unfortunately no good deal shuts them up.

"Extortion

The obtaining of property from another induced by wrongful use of actual or threatened force, violence, or fear, or under color of official right.

Under the Common Law, extortion is a misdemeanor consisting of an unlawful taking of money by a government officer. It is an oppressive misuse of the power with which the law clothes a public officer.Most jurisdictions have statutes governing extortion that broaden the common-law definition. Under such statutes, any person who takes money or property from another by means of illegal compulsion may be guilty of the offense. When used in this sense, extortion is synonymous with blackmail, which is extortion by a private person. In addition, under some statutes a corporation may be liable for extortion."

So Obamacare changes nothing.
It gives people who couldn't afford insurance the opportunity to get preventive care and it makes insurance available to those denied insurance due to a pre-existing medical condition, including pregnancy and a disability. And, for all of us, insurers will now have to justify any move to raise health plans premiums by 10 percent or more. Those changes are not "NOTHING".

MSNBC news producers abandoned their attempt to demonstrate the new health care exchange at healthcare.gov .

While repeatedly trying to access the New York, Maryland and New Jersey health care sites, news anchor Mara Schiavocampo eventually called a phone help line for assistance after the web chat function didn't work.

"This is the second call, so I've probably spent almost 20 minutes on the phone now. We started about 35 minutes ago, so at this point I'm going to hang up and call it a day," she explains on the show. "If I was signing up for myself, this is where my patience would be exhausted."

You invent way too much in your post. For example, concerning the election, I pointed out the fact that there were very many locations where it was obvious some programmer was so stupid they programmed the voting machines to steal 100 percent of the vote. Naturally, most of the programmers weren't that stupid, and they programmed the voting machines to steal one in three or one in four votes.
Nobody knows who won the last election.
Now, back to the post in which you didn't address one of any of the points made. Here it is again for your convenient reference, if you choose to address any of the points, as opposed to running away from them like you and all Democrats usually do.
When you dupes acknowledge the obvious conclusion that Frank Marshal Davis is Obama's biological father, we can begin to have a reasonable discussion. Look at the photos. It's obvious.
In case you're completely ignorant, the communist movement is, and has always been world-wide. They plan for the future. They plan to be here fighting to eliminate capitalism 50 years from now, and farther into the future. They have intentions that span as much time as it takes to eliminate capitalism from the Earth.
The original people who walked across the land bridge connecting Asia and North America 20,000 years ago discovered America.
Jesus was a jew. It has been speculated he could have had a Roman father. I don't know of anyone on Earth so ignorant to have speculated Jesus was black. But, that's Jesus the human. Jesus the ideology has no race. You need to at least make an effort to stop thinking in terms of race.
You show obvious signs of what psychiatrists call "projection". It is you who wishes to be on the winning side so bad, lying just becomes part of you. You do not even have a concept of any other motivation. The truth is, I want only to be on the just side, win or lose. You gobble up every lie just because you think winning is more important than being honest, truthful, and just.
To prove this point, should we go over the recent US history of the previous century and identify the system of lies the Democrats invented and successfully duped the entire country with? How about you explain why we get a constant stream of obvious lies from the White House since Obama took office. Then, explain to us why you mindlessly regurgitate them.
Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the US in Benghazi?
Why is Obama lying right now about the total debt?
Why does Obama lie about being at Columbia?
Why does Obama lie about being born in Hawaii?
Why does the White House put an obviously fraudulent "birth certificate" on the website? Why don't they just submit that document as evidence and be done with the issue?
Why do you constantly regurgitate the obvious lies from Obama and the Democrats?
Just one clarification, if I may. Jesus correctly was a Jew, but his father was neither black nor white. Pretty sure the God of the universe can pull off one immaculate conception. There's no particular color involved in the spirit realm.

(Just hope the secularists don't freak out now. They seem to think they're being forced to believe something just because millions of others do. Makes them very angry for some reason.)

Alan Grayson: Republicans are rejecting Obamacare out of drunken anger
Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) did not discount what he called “public reports” that Republican lawmakers were drinking on the job, telling Salon that it was affecting their job performance.
“It’s a fact we all have to live with,” Grayson said in an interview published on Tuesday.“It’s making them violent and abusive towards America.”
Grayson did not identify any Congress members by name, but told Salon that “you can smell alcohol on their breath as they’re voting gleefully to shut down the government and create chaos.”
Huffington Post correspondent Jennifer Bendery wrote on Twitter on Monday night that,“About every other House lawmaker I just talked to smelled like booze. It’s only 9pm.” Bendery’s account corroborates a Post report from Saturday that other media members witnessed or smelled unidentified lawmakers drinking in the midst of negotiations over shuttering government offices.
Grayson also accused House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) of stymieing a vote on a “clean” continuing resolution — one providing funding for the government that also includes the Affordable Care Act — out of self-preservation.
“He enjoys his golf games with the president, and he doesn’t want to lose that perk, and so he’s desperate to maintain his relevance, and that means maintaining his position at all costs,” Grayson told Salon.“Even the kind of costs we’re seeing now for the country.”
http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/10/01/alan-gr...
here's where Reagan rolls over in his grave.....
While Republican opposition has hinged on the new healthcare law, Grayson also accused Republicans of wanting to roll back other public health programs, such as the mandate requring emergency rooms to provide health care for patients unable to pay for their services.
Grayson doesn't care about anyone. He is another democrat who wanted the shut down to raise money. Filthy democrats.

Peter King: I Did My Best to Fight the Cruz Crazies

At the same time, the “Ted Cruz Republicans,” as King called them, had been consistently disloyal. The present crisis had only come about because the Cruz crazies had refused to go along with Boehner’s original plan. Boehner had figured on sending legislation to the Senate that would allow it to fund the government even as it refused to pass an essentially symbolic measure defunding Obamacare.

Just two weeks ago, Boehner and House Majority leader Eric Cantor had spoken eloquently against triggering a government shutdown. The whole idea had been for the Republicans to make a statement without hurting anybody. That was not good enough for the Cruz wing, which was bent on undoing a law that had been passed by Congress, signed by the president, upheld by the Supreme Court, and essentially reaffirmed by the electorate in a presidential election.

“It goes against the whole spirit of the Constitution,” King says of the effort to undo Obamacare.

King had been pretty eloquent himself as he pointed all of this out in a speech at a closed-door meeting of his fellow Republican members in room HC-5 in the basement of the Capitol on Monday afternoon. He reminded the gathering that he had voted again and again with leadership during Boehner's tenure. He also reminded them that the Cruz crazies heeded only themselves.

These people gave their Lives President Oblamer they have a voice also why should they pay for healthcare for illegal entrants they served this country The newly imposed government shutdown proved no match for a group of defiant veterans who were determined to visit the World War II Memorial in Washington DC yesterday. Hundreds of veterans arrived for a previously scheduled visit to the memorial Tuesday morning to find it barricaded by the National Park Service after the shutdown went into effect at midnight. But the group of 91 Vets who had traveled from Mississippi were not to be deterred and 'stormed' into the memorial.

The Tea Party behaves like the Taliban.
The concept of threatening, calling for, and inciting violence against the government has never been a part of being a patriotic American.
Whether it was Sarah Palin telling her sychochants to "don't retreat, reload", Michelle Bachman calling for Minnesotans to be armed and dangerous or Sharon Angle citing second Amendment remedies it is always teabaggers calling for violence against their enemies in government. Tea Party Taliban name is well deserved.
See? This is exactly why you liberals have lost your ever lovin' minds and why this president thinks fellow Americans who oppose his radical liberalism are more of a threat than the real enemy.

Inciting violence against the government? Are you just plain nuts?

Every Tea Party rally in every city and in every town across the country couldn't have been more orderly and respectful in their descent.

It was four liberal thugs who beat up a black Republican at one of those rallies who incited the only violence.

How Budget Brinkmanship Hurts the GOP

A minority of congressional Republicans are addicted to these impossible-to-win cosmic battles, which keep rescuing the president and his allies from taking responsibility for a lackluster domestic policy agenda.

Conservatives are on the cusp of developing an attractive reform agenda that represents a serious, affordable alternative to the Democratic vision of a federal government much larger in scale but more importantly in scope. But every time we have a new round of budget brinkmanship, this still-developing agenda gets derailed. This is a much bigger problem for Republicans than for Democrats, and more importantly, it is huge problem for the country.
