That isn't stopping them from charging the tax every year and collecting interest on that past due amount until they can start collecting....which they will.

IMO, anyone who refuses to take this oath doesn't deserve to live in the United States of America and cannot be trusted to have our best interest at heart. Since you have refused, I would say it is time for YOU to leave our shores.

On MSNBC, Matthews and his guests on Hardball described House Republicans as "whacko-birds," "crazy, angry" and "birthers," driven by bigotry and selfishness.

At 8:00 p.m. on Fox, Bill O'Reilly - the country's most-watched television pundit - upped the rhetorical ante. Two days after its introduction, Obamacare was "not ready for prime time," according to O'Reilly, riven with so many problems "it was pretty much impossible to list them all," and likely to spawn delays in medical care and fraud.

Cracker ass cracka Mathews sounds like the nut job to me.

Republicans must give Obama and Reid this disaster once and for all so reality can finally set in.

They put up the good fight but they must walk away and let them have it. All of it. And soon.

No matter how bad it gets, it can't be any worse than the Democrats being perceived as the victors when ObamaCare is a losing battle by itself.

The former relies on hysterics and name calling. The latter relies on common sense and rationality.

It's why the latter is creaming the former in ratings.

Really? There are now more than 17 Republicans who now say they are ready to pass a bill to fund the government with no strings attached. That give the House the votes it needs to pass the clean funding bill presented by the Senate IF only Boehner would present the bill to a vote.
You will wish Republicans had won this battle when they walk away and there's no one to blame except Obama, Reid and Pelosi.

Democrats must be put back on the defensive where they belong and let Americans see what they REALLY voted for.

One can fight the good fight but there comes a time when you have to let the losers lose the battle without any help.

The focus should be on the disaster we're all beginning to witness. Not a convenient distraction for the creators of it.

Too many Americans are confused already. Let them see who and what they voted for without confusing them further.

I'm losing patience with my own party. If this drags out much longer, I'm considering becoming an Independent out of sheer exasperation.

They fought the good fight but they must walk away and focus on the budget and the debt ceiling which puts another spotlight on the Democrats.

It's time to expose them, not give them cover.

it's essential to make a stand, even if you take a few punches along the way, to gain any respect....

As a foreign object you would have to take the oath you stated to become a citizen. Are you practicing? I was born a citizen and will never take the Naturalization Oath that you tout-Sick old fool!

You don't think ObamaCare will win the battle for conservatives?

Republicans are fighting to prove we're still a two-party system and I supported their efforts but am now convinced it's time to let the silver lining shine and the disaster to unfold so the nonsense in this country will come to an end.

The only way that's going to happen is for Americans not to become distracted and more confused and to be forced to focus only on Obamacare and reality.

This stalemate is hurting conservatives and helping Obama and Reid no matter how much you or I think it's the right thing to do. Obama and Reid are using it as a cover to take the heat off of them and too many Americans are too easily distracted to recognize it. You should know that too.

If you notice she wants every single American born citizen to take the oath. Liberals consider everyone to be illegals. That is where she is going with this:

I agree with you about Romney. McCain didn't stand a chance.

But it's absolutely imperative that Obama and Reid are the ones taking all of the heat especially at this crucial time when the first week of glitches proved just how unprepared Democrats are for this to become prime time and what Americans can expect going forward. The longer this drags on, the longer Obama and Reid can hide behind it rather than face the harsh realities of ObamaCare.

Americans are fast losing focus.

Some of us talked about the silver lining after the last election saying that it's going to have to get real bad first. It's time to start letting it get real bad. Obama and Reid must stand alone to defend it. It's the only way to prove to the majority they were wrong.
