John Boehner and Ted Cruz and the House’s “suicide caucus”—willing to bring down the economy to derail Obamacare—appear to be making bizarre choices. Some in their own party think so.(Grover Norquist on Cruz:“He pushed House Republicans into traffic and wandered away.”) But their behavior should actually be quite familiar to anyone who has had the frustration of dealing with an insurance company. They are treating Obamacare—a law passed by Congress, affirmed by the Supreme Court, and whose namesake was reëlected President—as a claim that they can avoid paying if they just come up with the right disingenuous angle. They are doing the same thing with their basic legislative responsibilities; they are the little men in the distant office, sending out letter after letter: deny, deny, deny. Obamacare might at least make that type rarer in the health-care system. When are we going to remake our politics?

You right wingers are such liars. House Republicans have had an opportunity to conference with the Senate since April. That’s when lawmakers in the Senate, led by Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), passed a budget and opened the door to create a committee to hash out the differences between that bill and the House budget, which it passed in March.
but Republican Senators blocked Harry Reid from creating a conference committee on eighteen separate occasions. Harry Reid rightfully refused their request as long as they're obsessed with defunding a law passed by Congress, signed by the President and upheld by the Supreme Court.
You must have missed the photo where six or seven Republicans were sitting on one side of a long table waiting to negotiate with the other side of the table which was completely empty.

Or how Republicans remained in Congress until well after midnight trying to work out a compromise without any Democrats present who didn't show up until 2 o'clock in the afternoon the next day.

Boehner likened to crying baby in new ad

Critics have long poked fun at House Speaker John Boehner's teary-eyed tendency. But now Democrats are comparing the speaker to a baby throwing an all-out temper tantrum.

During the commercial breaks of Sunday's game between the Cincinnati Bengals and the New England Patriots, viewers in Boehner's district will catch a 30-second ad with a close up of a wailing baby.

"Speaker John Boehner didn't get his way on shutting down health care reform," the ad's narrator says. "So, he's shut down the government and hurt the economy."

House Majority PAC, a group that backs Democratic candidates, released the ad on Friday.

"Speaker Boehner didn't get his way and so, like a child, he threw a Tea Party-inspired temper tantrum and shut down the federal government," Andy Stone, the group's communications director, said in a statement.

speaking of moochers, try corporate America
"This starkly illustrates the opportunity cost of out-of-control use of subsidies to business at the state and local level. In my academic work, I estimated these to be $48.8 billion a year in 1996, of which $26.4 billion was for investment attraction, and almost $70 billion in 2005, of which $46.8 billion was aimed specifically at investment attraction."

the federal Joint Committee on Taxation estimates will be $154 billion in special corporate tax breaks in 2013, contained in 135 individual provisions of the tax code.
offering state or local incentives for business to move to a state or town is far more effective than spending money on "jobs training" for non-existent jobs...
