Obama is only 1/3 of the government. He doesn't get to say it's going to be my way even with his signature legislation especially if it could potentially ruin the economy.
The Republican majority in the House is also 1/3 of the government. Don't they have a voice in how this law affects the economy?
Ruin the economy nitwit? All of the major industrial countries have some kind of universal healthcare and it hasn't ruined their economies at all. One thing that ruins an economy is when people go bankrupt or lose their homes do to medical debt. The ACA goes a long way to eliminate that.

Yep.
The medical device tax alone is a job killer that adds 2.3% tax directly on a companies yearly sales,regardless if they turn a profit.

Lots of jobs will be lost and quality of life will get worse for many because of this one tax alone.

It was part of an agreement. The ACA sends more customers to the medical device industry & they help fund the program.

You people are dumber than sh*t.

How does sending more customers to an industry cost jobs? Brad. How?

Divided government requires bipartisan negotiation
By Eric Cantor, Published: October 8

Eric Cantor, a Republican from Virginia, is the House majority leader.

For three years, Congress and the White House have been building to this moment. Not the debt limit or Obamacare specifically, but this clarifying moment of Washington dysfunction. President Obama has led us here by continually thwarting the will of Congress and dismissing its role in our constitutional republic. This must end.

The president not only has refused to negotiate on issues of debt and spending but also has mocked the very idea of engaging with Congress. President Obama has repeatedly made clear that he feels it is beneath the office of the presidency to work in a bipartisan way with the legislative branch.

The Constitution gives Congress the power of the purse and the power to borrow. The president was given the power to veto measures, including those related to spending and borrowing. These separate powers created checks and balances but also forced the executive and legislative branches to work together.

As James Madison wrote in Federalist No. 48,“It is equally evident, that none of [the branches of the federal government] ought to possess, directly or indirectly, an overruling influence over the others, in the administration of their respective powers.”

In the 224 years of our nation’s history, one party has controlled the House, Senate and White House for 130 years. President Obama enjoyed two of those years, and it’s no surprise he wishes that were still the case. Yet while 28 of 44 U.S. presidents have found a way to lead in divided government, this president has not.

OBAMA SAYS I AM THE KING!
IT IS MY WAY OR HIGH WAY
I AM THE KING DAMN IT!!!!!

Yep, batshyt crazy is the verdict!!
Dweeb is reprising his racist Texas roots.
Wouldn't have anything to do with people being brought to America as slaves, sold off individually, families broken up by design, children separated from parents, husbands from wives, living in slavery for ?how many generations?? Slavery lasted in America for over 100 years, with continual family degradation by slaveholders.
They were property. And they're supposed to fit your idea of family values?? You're batshyt, alright.
So with this backround, how exactly are they supposed to even understand what a family is??
We destroyed the family cultures Africans had, and replaced it with brutality and no human dignity.
And asshats like you stand in judgement.
You forgot to mention one thing. It was Africans that captured and sold the slaves. However inconvenient this fact is to you, ignoring it won't make it go away.
Now, since it's common knowledge Africans captured and sold slaves, just who would those African slave traders want to get rid of? Do you think they would want to get rid of anyone that was a benefit to them? Obviously not. Among those captured from other villages that were of no use to the village, and those from the village that were useless, there would also be a sprinkling of those who were a political inconvenience to the village chief.
This is the reality. Use this knowledge to re-evaluate your ignorant conclusions.
Now, back to the issue. Please remind yourself we're not discussing the world as it existed 200 years ago. We're discussing the world as it exists today. Related to the "why", the general irresponsibility and unreliability of the so-called "African" American wasn't caused by African slave traders selling Africans to be transported here. Prior to the so-called "progressives" forcing tolerance for uncivilized behavior, the black community was not infected by this plague of irresponsible behavior most notably exhibited by so-called "African" American men abandoning their children as a cultural tradition.
I Africa, you don't see an entire culture of single mothers with children whose fathers abandoned them as a cultural tradition. The so-called "African" Americans would be the lowest of the low, and they would have the lowest status and respect in any African culture or village.
This is a fact, although it is a very inconvenient fact to your systematic lies that comprise the propaganda you've been indoctrinated with.

I was literally "ROTFLMAO" after that one. Even funnier is people like USA believe him. I mean c'mon!
Spending more than you take in raises the debt, dipstick.

Congress approves the funding & knows at that time it will create more debt than the debt limit would permit. Then then run around "OMG OMG the debt ceiling OMG OMG"

Only a dumbf*ck like you think that makes sense.

URGENT WARNING: Pentagon Warns To Expect “Radical” Change In US Government Soon
October 8, 2013
A highly troubling “urgent bulletin” issued earlier today by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) states that it has received information from the Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) warning to expect a“radical change” in the government of the United States, possibly within the next fortnight, based on information they have received from “highly placed” sources within the Pentagon.
According to this MoFA bulletin, GRU intelligence assests were notified by their Pentagon counterparts this past week that President Barack Obama is preparing to invoke the powers given to him under 50 USC Chapter 13 to hold that various American States are now in a “state of insurrection” thus allowing him to invoke the National Emergencies Act under 50 USC § 1621 and invoke the highly controversial“continuity of government” plan for the United States allowing him, in essence, to rule with supreme powers.
Specifically, this bulletin says, Obama will invoke 50 USC § 212 that states:“ the President shall have declared by proclamation that the laws of the United States are opposed, and the execution thereof obstructed, by combinations too powerful to be suppressed by the ordinary course of judicial proceedings”
The specific laws being opposed by these “combinations too powerful to be suppressed by the ordinary course of judicial proceedings,” that Obama will outline in his reasoning’s for declaring a state of emergency, this bulletin continues, are the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), otherwise known as Obamacare...

You people re dumber than sh*t.
The issue that most people know about is the “employer mandate”— a loose term for a set of fines for businesses that don’t cover their workers. That’s a big issue for small businesses that might be right on the edge of 50 workers.

Starting in 2015, any employer with the equivalent of 50 or more full-time workers will have to pay a $2,000 annual fine for each worker — not counting the first 30 — if they don’t offer health coverage.

Read more: http://www.politico.com/story/2013/09/how-oba...
The latest House bill, which the chamber backed on a 228-201 vote, would have delayed the law's individual mandate while prohibiting lawmakers, their staff and top administration officials from getting government subsidies for their health care.

The Senate voted 54-46 along party lines to reject it.

Amid the drama, President Obama said he's holding out hope that Congress will come together "in the 11th hour." http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/09/30/bu...
