Talking up the foot soldiers is not that unusual.

However, no negotiations is not an option. The public wants the sides together and figure it out.

I once heard a definition of insanity:
Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.
Do you agree?
I agree fully.

It is like claiming Obamacare works when the POTUS had to issue numerous executive orders because it is impossible to implement it as written.

You do Know this will end up in court. A POTUS cannot by executive orders rewrite a low.

Wouldn't be necessary if people would stop trying to obfuscate.
Example-
The American people don't like Obamacare
The Left-
here is a poll about Republicans
here is a poll about the shut down
etc.
None of these things change the fact that Americans don't like Obamacare.
No wonder potus polls are slipping.

DELAY, rework, IMPROVE to something viable.

We have had shut downs before this isn't the first rodeo.
Over exaggerating the results of such is just that.
In seven shutdowns the Dems were in control of WH, Senate and House. They appear to be still around.

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.
QUIT TRYING TO stranglehold and DRAIN MY COUNTRY with some bullchit marxist, self-serving pipe dream propoganda!

They should ask the Republican Party to pay their losses. Tell them to talk to Boehner. The shut down is affecting businesses all across this country & Republicans don't care.
But I am sure there is something in the lease agreement that discusses instances when the area is closed.
It wasn't Boehner that EXCLUDED representation from ALL factors at the start-- when shoving this monstrosity of Marxist beaurocracy down the throats of the America people to choke on.

Fine, then let it happen on its own. The ACA is the law of the land, it was passed in both Houses of Congress, signed into law by the President and up held by SCOTUS.
If it fails it fails. But stop trying to kill it prematurely. Since the GOP hasn't provided an alternative and refused to negotiate, this is what we have.
The real problem is that Republicans are afraid it will be a big success. That is why they are willing to force this country into another recession and ruin our credit rating. They don't give a crap about the country or its citizens. The only real concerns the GOP have are regaining control of the gov't and serving the rich and their corporate interests
The GOP hasn't provided an alternative? Funny, but I bet when the ACA goes into the shi**er, your side will immediately say it was a GOP idea or Romneycare on 'roids. If by some miracle it becomes a success, Obama and his progressive lackeys will grab ALL of the credit.

Here is another estimate.
"Seeking insight, Daily Intelligencer tracked down a senior official at the Department of Health and Human Services who, on the condition of anonymity, was willing to give us the skinny on CGI’s Obamacare work — and how much the company was paid for it. The official, who did not have permission to speak to the press, is a contracting specialist at HHS who has managed more than $1 billion in purchases (although did not work directly with CGI).
The answer? All contracts between CGI and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the arm of HHS that is charged with implementing the Affordable Care Act, inked since mid-2010 were for Obamacare IT work. The total value of the contracts meeting that description ( http://usaspending.gov/explore... ) is $515 million.
HEADLINE September 24, 2007:
CGI Federal, Inc.,(CGI) a wholly-owned U.S. operating subsidiary of CGI Group Inc.,(NYSE: GIB; TSX: GIB.A) today announced that it was one of 8 large business IT service providers selected by the Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to bid on up to US$4 BILLION in work to be awarded under CMS's Enterprise Systems Development (ESD) IDIQ contract.

To claim that every contract awarded to CGI since 2010 is associated with Obamacare is ridiculous...AND, the $515 million figure doesn't even exist.

CGI Medicare/Medicaid Services contracts since 2004:

November 4, 2004 -$100 million for technical solutions and support for several CMS component areas. Including support for the medicare.gov Web site.

June 29, 2005 -$14.5 million contract to be the prime contractor to develop and support its Payment Reconciliation System (PRS).

February 4, 2008 -$27 million contract to implement CMS’ Provider Enrollment Chain and Ownership System (PECOS) One-Stop-Shop release.

October 7, 2008,$15 million award to maintain and enhance services contracts for Medicare & Medicaid Services over 5 years.

February 2, 2009 -$25 million over five and one half years for the continued development and implementation of the Medicare Appeals System (MAS) to support legislatively mandated appeals processes for traditional Medicare Fee-for-Service (FFS) and Managed Care (MC).

March 17, 2009 -$135 million five and one half year contract for the Medicare Advantage & Part D (MA & Part D) Maintenance and Enhancement Services contract by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for five and one half years.

In May 2010,$73.2 Million five year Contract to "CONTINUE its modernization, application management, and maintenance efforts on three external websites that provide information to 44 million beneficiaries and millions more healthcare providers and other stakeholders."

The three websites affected —Medicare.gov, cms.hhs.gov , and MyMedicare.gov .

January 12, 2011 -$55 million five-year "task order"
to continue software development and operational support services for the Provider Enrollment Chain Ownership System (PECOS) including Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) registration and attestation functionality.

May 24, 2011 $5.7 million to advance the support FHA’s CONNECT Nationwide Health Information Exchange (NHIE) Gateway Solution.

May 31, 2011 -$44.9 million eight year contract renewal with Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Department of Public Welfare to provide support for preventing, detecting, deterring, and correcting improper payments.

December 1, 2011 -$93.7 million contract to build the U.S. government’s federally-facilitated health insurance exchange The contract has an estimated total contract value of US$93.7 million over a two-year base with three, one-year option periods. The US$55.7 million base contract has been awarded.

Karma and others should just say what they mean - all the GOP has to do is cave and give Obama exactly what he wants. Just like they'd do if the roles were reversed...right? Sure.

If not, Obama takes his ball and goes home. Some things never change, no matter how old we get.
