We're leaning more about the costs of Obamacare every day. Senator Cruz warned us, and tried to fund every part of government but the Affordable Care Act. The Democrats vilified him and just Friday, 39 Democrats in the House joined the effort to delay a part of Obamacare.

This is a waste of time. It's pure fantasy. First, you don't understand the funding mechanism of the ACA. Most of the ACA has specific sources of funding which lie outside the appropriations process. They were written into the law itself. That's why it continued to be funded despite the shut down. And beside the point, Reid knows his caucus. There was no support for the piecemeal spending bills which would have gutted the ACA and continued to shut down part of the government. Especially when the President would have vetoed any such measures anyway. However, there was broad support for keeping the government open and raising the debt ceiling. How do I know? Because as soon as Cruz and his loony ilk stopped filibustering those very measures, and as soon as Boehner allowed a vote in the House, they passed rather easily.
And as for Republicans not wanting to shut down the government, this is complete nonsense. Any number of these Tea Party loons were on record advocating that very thing (as well as default). It wasn't until the politics blew up in their faces did they then claim it was a "media" conspiracy. Some conspiracy. Simply reporting exactly what they said and did. And at least have the courage to stand behind what it is you did and advocated. Quit trying to blame others for your misguided actions.
Finally, what were all of those great Republican alternatives to the ACA? Allowing insurance companies to sell useless policies out of Guam? It's nothing more than a talking point. The ACA WAS a Republican law. The fact that they rejected their own law is a testament to their extremism, not Obama's failure to compromise.
Why can't you just give up the fantasy and admit the ACA sucks and is WRONG, and so is OBOMO and COMO, et al...?

Dear Mr Truth,
Thank you for engaging my boy in his little game.
Little Truthy had a very hard childhood and rarely talks to anyone. He always did have a few imaginary friends and one that I do remember was named Glenn something.
You see he was a special needs child and it took him four years before he learned that he couldn't put a square peg into a round hole. He damaged so many square pegs that they finally allowed him to graduate to the sixth grade to cut peg costs. Unfortunately that is where he remained until he had to leave his special education classes at the age of twenty one.
He now spends his time in the basement of our old home because he is afraid to leave the house. Before I passed I bought him a lifetime supply of hot pockets, a large freezer and a microwave oven so he wouldn't go hungry.
He really is a good boy when he takes his medications but I'm afraid that without me there he might not be taking them. When he doesn't take them he becomes delusional and imagines that he is a highly educated young man and lashes out at anyone who disagrees with him. When I was still alive I just agreed with him and patted him on the head and that seemed to settle him down a bit. We used to have a cute little kitty named "Socks" but one day when little Truthy was off his meds.....well I don't want to go there.
So again Mr Truth, thank you so much for entertaining little Truthy as it is a noble thing for someone such as you to try to do. We need more compassionate people such as you who are willing to engage with a special needs young man.
Bless you,
The Ghost of Mrs. Truth Dig
