Hear, hear. There is no plan. Just the other night I watched a Fox News clip. Did not catch the names, but this man said, "Just guess what % of Americans Obamacare has helped." The lady said, "20%." He said, "No, Obamacare has only helped 1% of the American people." WTF? Sign up begins Oct. 1,2013 and Obamacare doesn't even take affect until Jan. 1, 2014. It hasn't helped or hurt anyone yet. Not even Waco's sister. Maybe what has hurt is the panic that the republiCON party has spread through out the nation.

Obama said that when it is successful is when Republicans will quit using the term 'Obamacare' and will call it something else. Ted Cruz may suggest 'Green eggs and ham'

Yes it has hurt. You people can not see past the end of your nose. The government morons have wasted billons of tax dollars paying people to stand around wasting time on Obama care socialism. Money individual Americans have earn to support their families. Money individual Americans earn by working getting off their a&& and doing work! Only to have their efforts stolen by a government full of Fascist Communist minded thief's.

In January of 2007, George W. Bush was entering the final stretch of his two-term presidency. Bush, however, chose not to ride off simply into the sunset. Instead, he put forth a comprehensive plan to reform the private health insurance market. It’s long-forgotten now, because Democrats had just regained control of Congress, and these newly-empowered legislators pronounced the Bush plan “dead on arrival.” In many ways, though, the Bush proposal was impressive and credible. It would have expanded coverage while reducing the deficit. Should it serve as the starting point for replacing Obamacare?

Today, when it comes to health care and entitlements, Bush is best-known for his 2003 Medicare prescription-drug benefit. That plan is widely unloved; conservatives complain that it permanently increased the deficit, while liberals dislike its market-oriented features. But had Bush’s 2007 plan made it into law, it would have unleashed a market-driven revolution in private health insurance, one that would have made insurance cheaper for the people who need it most. Obamacare, as we know it today, would not have been drafted

Yesterday, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R., Wisc.) gave a major speech on health reform at the Hoover Institution in Stanford, California. Ryan spoke, of course, of his “Path to Prosperity” plan for Medicare and Medicaid reform. But he also took time to take on America’s third health-care entitlement: the $300 billion-a-year tax subsidy for employer-sponsored health insurance, reform of which provides the opportunity for a market-oriented approach to universal coverage.

“Beyond [Medicare and Medicaid],” said Ryan,“our current tax code provides additional fuel for runway health care inflation. Under current law, employer-sponsored health insurance plans are entirely exempt from taxation, regardless of how much an individual contributes to their policy. This tilts the compensation scale toward benefits, which are tax-free, and away from higher wages, which are taxable. It also provides ways for high-income earners to artificially reduce their tax-able income by purchasing high-cost health coverage – which in turn can fuel the overuse of health services…These structural flaws push affordable coverage out of reach for millions of Americans.”

People will learn how far a big bag bean of pinto beans, rice and other cheap but healthy food will go.

I don't want to see anyone go hungry. I would like to see those who have blissfully taken for granted for years that the Food Stamp card would be loaded monthly, and their check for doing nothing would be deposited have to get out and actually work for food.

Didn't kill our forefathers to work for food, won't kill the people of this country.

Please no one whine about the hungry children. This country already has a problem with childhood obesity, so this should help little Johnny figure out that mom driving him through a fast food restaurant isn't what a good meal is.

Meals on wheels will continue for the elderly and should and there's plenty of churches and other organizations that have food pantries stocked with formula for infants.

Democrats and republicans alike passed Obamacare into law in 2010. Republicans in congress have wasted time and money trying to defund it. And what about the time and money that has been wasted on immigration reform or gun control. Truth is we have an over paid, do nothing, spiteful, racist congress. Congress controls how government money is spent but, I guess you blame the POTUS.

The American people will do what they have to, to live. Those "Big Wigs" in Washington are the ones who need to be reduced to pintos and rice. They sit on their a$$e$ and do nothing and eat like kings on our money. Do you think they could afford to live the lavish lifestyles they do if the majority of the people weren't working and paying their taxes? What the American people needs to do if the government shuts down is, we need to sit down and boycott. We should all walk off our jobs every last one of us until they get their shit together. Growing up I ate beans and taters twice a day, damn sure wont hurt me to do it again.

I believe you. But Obamacare didn't cause it. Obamacare hasn't even started . What happened to your sister is called opportunism. Its like when a hurricane hits and OSB plywood goes from $7 to $25 per sheet. Insurance companies are taking advantage of the republican generated panic.

Here is what will actually happen. The US Senate will send the bill back to the House of Representatives. Republikans can then fund the government or shut it down. Republikans started this game. Its your move republikans.
