Sorry but that's not how this went at all.<quoted text>
This "my way or the highway" is crap made up to hide the FASCT that Republicans have threatened the well being of our country to push their already defeated agenda.
The way this system works is you present ideas in Congress. Then debate these ideas & vote. If it passes both Houses then President gets his say.
When it becomes a law & you want to change it., you present those changes in Congress.
You don"t threaten the well being of our country to make those changes.
You people are just too stupid to get it.
If you don't want the ACA, win elections & quit THREATENING MY COUNTRY.
The Republicans agreed to fund all forms of Government, accept for Obama care and wanted to negotiate defunding parts of that law. It was Obama who was unwilling to get round the table, as was his mandate to do so. It's his power hungry attitude that has lead to this shutdown. Yes he was elected President but last time I looked he wasn't made King.
