First, this is written by a senior fellow at the Hoover Institute. It is a right wing think tank, so OF COURSE they would blame it on Obama. Second, this piece does a non-existent job of explaining the difference between mandatory spending and discretionary spending. Yes, the House CAN take issue with discretionary (appropriations) spending. The problem this author doesn't tell you is this: The Affordable Care Act is considered an "entitlement" program, therefore it is covered under MANDATORY spending! In other words, House Republicans cannot "defund" it. If they can defund the ACA, they can defund your social security, Medicaid, Medicare, etc., and believe me, if they could defund those other programs, they would. It's time we all used Google for what it was meant to be used for. INVESTIGATE, EDUCATE. Stop falling for every piece that follows the narrative you prefer! This author knows the difference in spending and what can be challenged and what can't. This article obviously wasn't written to educate the masses, it was written to dumb you down even further. Carry on.

This shows how little you actually know there pipester, but then again, we already knew that. IF you had brain, you would know that Social Security CANNOT be defunded as it is a stand alone program that is funded by the taxes that are collected. I realize that reading isn't your strong suit UNLESS it is that left wing hate piece HuffPO, but you might try reading on the history of Social Security. And the House isn't nor has it even threatened to defund Social Security or Medicare or Medicaid. Social Security is NOT an entitlement nor is Medicare. Medicaid and ACA are entitlements along with food stamps and WIC. Apparently your public school education missed the finer points of government.

As for educating the masses, if YOU think HuffPO is educational, then you have truly been dumbed down, no surprise there.

Yeah, we can all trust a Democrat from Illinois. Served or not, once you become a member of that party you've lost ANY clout with me. Maybe he'll command the socialist forces once Obama names him the new Gobbles.

No, I will not trust anyone completely. I will however, judge their actions and deeds and measure them with the old yardstick of "money talks, BS walks." You're either totally incapable of seeing the left for the serpents they have become or you agree with socialism. That's it. There is no other answer. I don't understand why you guys just don't run as a socialist ticket. Afraid of the name? Oh, that's it. Obama would have never been elected at all if he ran on what he believes is the perfect model of government, a model that's been proven destructive time and time again. His transformation of America will be met with any and all forms of resistance and you had better believe that.

Wrong again Trailer Park Jim. You 'really' are a special kind of stupid aren't you?
DOD warned the GOP House before Oct. 1 that legislation that was in place did not authorize them to make death benefit payments after Oct. 1. The GOP House ignored the warning given them by DOD and failed to bring legislation for a vote that would fix the problem . Whose fault is that? When the President was informed of this, he quickly addressed it and directed DOD to explore ways to fix it without waiting for the GOP House to get its act together. DOD called on The Fisher House Foundation, a non-profit organization, to provide funding and they agreed to pay the benefits until such time as the Govt resumes payments.
Just STFU because once again, you don't know what you're talking about.
So the DOD didn't also inform the House democrats? Nor did they then inform the senate reps and dems before they voted?
It's rather odd that it got all the way to Obama so he could be the hero and it just happens that in the process he makes only the House GOP look bad, after he also signed it.
I think there's more to this story than is being revealed.

He did a-hole. DOD warned the GOP House before Oct. 1 that it was not authorized to make the payments unless and until an appropriation bill was passed. Its the responsibility of the house to do this. The GOP House ignored it. Whose fault is that? When the President was informed of the problem he acted to fix it. The Fisher House Foundation stepped to the plate and will pay the benefits until such time as the Govt resumes payments. Why don't you just STFU and serve your french fies?

Spin it however you like Wiggles. The facts as I presented them are accurate. If you're so so sure there's more to this, then why hasn't Darrell Issa or Boehner demanded an investigation to clear the GOP from any wrongdoing?

Sorry pipster, I only asked an obvious question. You are the one spinning/implying that ONLY the GOP was notified of the problem.
And it appears from your answer that you are guilty of a lie (spinning) or you would have offered proof that your lie (spinning) was a fact...which you can't.
You must be getting dizzy from all that spinning.

Bull-$hit. never implied that ONLY the GOP was notified. As usual you're spinning words here. You have a real problem doing that Wiggles. DOD warned the GOP HOUSE leadership of the problem. Whether or not the GOP leadership in turn notified individual House members is irrelevant because no action by the GOP House leadership was taken to correct the problem until AFTER the issue became issue. Does that satisfy you? Regardless of who was notified, the GOP HOUSE ignored it and did nothing. This lead to payments not being made which in turn led to the President ordering DOD to fix the problem and not wait for Congressional action. You implied -- actually did more than imply -- you stated the White House and Democrat members of Congress orchestrated all of this so that the President could take credit. That's Bull shit and YOU'RE wrong.

Odd that you failed to mention anywhere that the democraps were notified by the DOD and did or said NOTHING about it also. Or did you just "forget"???

If the democraps knew, why didn't they say anything?? Please explain.

Are you for real? He left that message like 3 days ago. But then again nobody here ever accused you of being quick thinking. Without our military we would not be free people. Maybe you should study some history and find out how many times the United States was challenged. If you don't know the basics then we can't help your dumb ass
