Sorry George, but do not blame republicans on not wanting Obamacare when they have been fighting to stop it. Plus it was idiot Obama who has illegally altered his own tax law by giving unions, business', congress and everyone else but the American people exemptions and delays. So now you are sounding a bit hypocritical. Obama and the democrats do not want to be on it, but they want to force the American people and they have a site that is not working. This is no leadership by example. This is do as I say and not as I do.

The things you mention, and yes you are correct about what Obama did, but that is irrelevant to the fact Republicans have put their own personal interest by far above the best interest of the American people. DOesnt matter that they didnt want it, the people have it and they should have accepted todays proposal in the best interest of the country. I understand their own personal interests favored refusing, but they werent elected to benefit themselves. They are there to do what is best for we, the people, and they did not do that today. But that is not surprising, they havent had the best interest of the country in mind in a long time.

Interestingly, if they had passed it and put it to the Senate, they would have forced the Dems to make the choice. I am sure the dems dont want to be forced into the exchanges and lose their subsidies anymore than the Repubs do, and they might have rejected it. Then it would have been the dems putting their interests first. On a side note I thought Congress already had to get on Obamacare. I have heard them on tv saying as much. I would bet money that somewehre down the line they exempted themselves, probably on the down low so nobody noticed. Congress and Obama should be forced into the same plans we are and we the people should DEMAND it. Losing their subsidies is another matter. While I think it would be hard pressed for a Congressmen who makes what like 150K or more a year to get much sympathy for having to pay for their own insurance, I really dont have a problem with them keeping the subsidies like many empolyers do.

George.....they have exempted themselves and their staff from it thanks to Obama. I have heard you say that they should delay for the American people just like they have for others. And you are right about forcing the democrats to vote for the proposal. It just shows that even the members of congress do not want Obamacare. So it makes this tax law illegal. It is written that those in congress shall not pass laws that they themselves must abide by. They are not part of the law and have exempt themselves from it. Therefore they have put themselves above the law and have made themselves royalty. This is what we as a nation fought to free ourselves against the tiranny of a elitist government. We are becoming what we have fought to be free from.

Why don't all of you stop repeating yourselves and call your congressman, senators, and the dumb White House switchboard and tell them your grievances. None of this on here gets read by our leaders. Pickup the damn phone and call them the Taliban, dumb ass Teabaggers and obstructionists. See how far that gets you. If you people would have put the effort into dealing with the elected officials like you have on here maybe the problem wouldn't exist today. The problem in America isn't the politicians, it's the blind followers of there favorite slug politician. Fight against all of the bullshit in Washington and take some sort of action.

With just a few days left before the federal government reaches its borrowing limit, House Republican leaders had unveiled a proposal earlier in the day to re-open the government and raise the borrowing limit that they thought could pass the embattled Republican-led chamber. But just moments after Republicans submitted it to the House Rules Committee for a review, the panel announced that it would postpone its hearing indefinitely — suggesting the votes were not there to pass it.
The key parts of the plan would have kept the government open through mid-December and grant the Treasury Department authorization to borrow through February. But the proposal also includes a stipulation that members of Congress, their staff and administration officials — including President Barack Obama — be forced to obtain health insurance coverage through the exchanges established under Obamacare. Unlike most Americans, they also would not be eligible to receive federal subsidies to offset the cost of those plans or seek financial help from their employer.
==========
Look at that. Ready to pass a bill to end this nonsense and what was the deal breaker????. They dont want forced into Obamacare exhanges and to lose their subsidies. What wondeful politicians who never put themselves above the American people. Pfffffft.
The deal breaker had nothing to do with the congress having to go on Obama care. They were told by their masters not to bring it to a vote. Heritage Foundation, Red State and FreedomWorks all slammed the GOP proposal as unacceptable. This bill was a Republican bill that was not allowed to come to a vote in the Republican house because they are afraid they will be primaried in the next election and lose their job. A bunch of wusses held hostage to a bunch of morons.

Great idea, I've done that and one representative (republican) actually said "I don't know what those dumbasses are doing. And one said "I vote my party". We know who she is with.

It was the republicans that closed the government and it's the republicans keeping it closed. Bonner pulled the vote after Heritage Foundation put the word on him.
You people trying to spin this accusing the democrats are delusional and should join up with the teabag taliban. Oh wait, you already did. Good luck with that

i've tried to contact Manchin and rockefeller about the NDAA when it was being voted on, and some other issues. i got very generic responses from both, i doubt they ever read my emails, i think they had a secretary do it for them.

it's useless trying to rely on our politicians to do what we want, they have self-interest in mind and disregard the will of the people they are supposed to be representing.

The sad thing about that is a lot of children are going to go hungry. I heard a teacher talk about a child, HERE in Jackson county, not getting enough to eat, especially on week-ends when school is out. This breaks my heart.
And some of the old people and vets..

Once again, Obama and the rest of the democrat stooges are trying to inflict the most pain possible on the American people. Let's see how much Obama's family get away at Thanksgiving costs while the government is supposedly shut down and food stamps are delayed. What a bunch of scumbags.
