Please Lord... Shut it down.<quoted text>The fact is that the senate did not vote. It was pushed through under reconciliation. Pelosi said she didn't know what was in it and we'd find out later. When challenged in the supreme court the Obama administration changed the definition to a tax or it would not have made it through there either. of course they spent months telling anyone that would listen that it wasn't a tax, but the truth is always a casualty when this president opens his mouth. Since we all Know that all taxes are subject to approval of the house, then the house was and is well within it's purview to suspend and/or cancel funding.(Think Viet Nam)
The senate can now either listen to their constituents and remove funding for the Affordable Care Act (another oxymoron) or they can shut down the government. Very simple. The house funds all other activities of government save for the automatic increases. Course the progressives that rule the democrat party with an iron fist will lie and call these "cuts". Holding the line is not a cut.
The democrats in the senate might actually do the right thing and accept the house bill as written and then der leader can either submit to the will of the people or he can shut down the government. The choices are clear.
Shut down Social Security first.
Shut down Medicare Part D next.
Shut down all Medicare next.
Shut down school lunches next.
Shut down Aid to the Elderly next.
Stop paying the Army next.
Shut down airports, trains, and ports next.
Shut down the Border Patrol next.
And on and on.
Please... Shut it all down.
Let's let the Right Wing Wackos win, as as the government shut down causes them to "go away", they'll start to understand how foolish they are.
