[T]here's a part of the story that seemingly has been lost in history: Democrats have already compromised on healthcare reform by adopting Obama/RomneyCare in the first place.
Fundamentally and infuriatingly for the Democratic base Obamacare is inherently a compromise because it is a health insurance reform law rather than an overhaul of the structure of our nation's healthcare system. A significant contingent of Democratic voters and activists has always supported a single-payer healthcare system, in which the government, not private insurance companies, covers healthcare costs for all Americans (think Medicare for all).[...] For many Democrats, these compromises have been hard to swallow. Frustration still lingers among liberals over the abandonment of the single-payer system. In surveys on healthcare, 11% of Americans oppose the administration's health plan because it does not go far enough. Among Democratic activists, that percentage is far higher.[...]

Despite all these compromises and concessions, House Republicans still forced a government shutdown. Having coerced the Democrats into adopting a Republican health insurance reform plan, they then accused the administration of refusing to compromise. What kind of shell game is this?

The Democrats have compromised over and over again. Now it's the Republicans' turn to play fair.

The GOP no longer knows the meaning of the word 'compromise'. If the Democrats are for it, the Republicans oppose it, no matter how common sense the thing is.

Typical liberal response to a simple question... where the answer isn't something they want to hear.

They are happy because they are finally standing up and fighting back against the tyranny that is Obama.

You wouldn`t know what tyranny is if it fell out of the sky, landed on your face and started to wiggle around.
