Debunked. Debunked. Debunked. Polly want a cracker?
Silly nilly this hasn't been debunked.

If you think you stating it makes it so-get a touch of reality.

Only 17% of government is closed. The OMB is directly involved in deciding what is non-essential.

I am happy to keep repeating this truth :)

You IDIOT!!! THE CONGRESSIONAL MEMBERS AND STAFF ARE NOT RECEIVING THE SAME TREATMENT UNDER THE HEALTHCARE LAW AS ALL OTHER CITIZENS!!!!! THEIR RIGHTS HAVE BEEN TAKEN AWAY FROM THEM. By being singled out and being FORCED to leave their insurance plan and join the exchanges they are being treated differently than everyone else. Why can't you see that?
The exchanges are for those with low incomes and preexisting conditions...just exactly how do you suppose members and their staff are going to qualify for subsidies? Their not. To be fair, it is only right that they be allowed to keep their employer contribution to their health care. Anything else is assine.
This I have debunked and provided a link.

<quoted text>Now you're complaining that the government isn't providing quality enough healthcare for poor people and before poor people didn't deserve adequate healthcare insurance at all if they couldn't afford it. The Tea Party used to tell the elderly and people with pre-existing conditions denied healthcare to just go off and die .
Galt is starting to see the beauty of ObamaKKKare shuffling the welfare bums off on the Third World doctors and ghetto hospitals....where they will die more quickly...

The World War II memorial was financed by private donations and they pay in advance for the Park service to maintain it.
NO TAX dollars.
What did you fail to understand here?
It is maintained by Park Service employees and with no personnel to guard and maintain it, it's closed.

Of course, the RNC is trying to use the situation as a tool by offering to pay for guards at the National World War II Memorial but everyone recognizes it as a political stunt to try and get the heat off of them for closing it in the first place.

Really? I can think of at least seven reasons insurance under the Affordable Care Act is better than anything offered in the past to those with low incomes or pre-existing conditions:
1 - Requires insurance companies to cover people with pre-existing health conditions
2 - Holds insurance companies accountable for rate increases
3 - Makes it illegal for health insurance companies to arbitrarily cancel your health insurance just because you get sick
4 - Covers young adults under 26
5 - Provides free preventive care
6 - Ends lifetime and yearly dollar limits on coverage of essential health benefits
7 - Guarantees your right to appeal
...and restricts them to the worst hospitals and doctors....

The left's policy with tax payers is pay up and shut the f**k up.

A sound tactic used by money lenders world wide.

Heck, I loan my kids and friends money all the time without wanting to know what they'll do with it. Doesn't everyone?

Obama closed the open air memorial. 17% of the government is closed down at the desecration of the Obama admin as to what is.

That is a lie. There are park rangers maintaining the fence around the site and guards are posted. Neither of which was done prior to Obama's decision to close it.

Even though I understand the implications of letting Obama and the Democrats have complete ownership of Obamacare because it will be much more difficult putting the cat back into the bag once it's been let out, a big part of me still wants Republicans to say to Obama and Reid, "It's all yours now."
They tried.
lol! You seem to declare to understand everything son. And then rattle of your reasons as to why you believe your opinions are.... shall we say... clairvoyant?
