<quoted text>No pookie, the only one that said that was Obama, hence he hasn't had the congressional leaders to the White House to try and work out differences. Obama will talk to Putin, to the Iranian leader, but not republicans. It's easy to see as usual, he will set back and take the credit when possible and blame the republicans when he can't. He is weak and ineffective.
A term of endearment used for a loved one. Often used when one is aroused sexually.

You're one, twisted, old, fat, white, trolling for men, waste of space. Go grab your raygun doll for oldtimes sake.

ALL COVERED?

When ObamaCare was initially presented to the public in 2009, it was said that the new law would provide health insurance for every man, woman and child in America. So is it true? The law will cover many more, but not everyone.

While ObamaCare is expected to extend coverage to 25 million Americans over the next 10 years, it will leave a projected 31 million people without insurance by 2023, according to the Congressional Budget Office. Though the law requires individuals to buy health insurance, many are expected to buck that mandate and risk the possibility of a fine. Most of the 31 million will be people living below the poverty line in the 21 states that have decided against expanding Medicaid under ObamaCare.

Once again treasonous teabaggers prove they could care less about the country! Shutting down the government seems to be a yearly game with them.
Well that's their primary mission since Obama's inauguration. They claim they were elected to come to Washington to shut it down.

That's why they were celebrating last night. They feel they've reached some milestone and accomplishment.

It's 435 Reps, and those reps are being dragged around and down by 40 Tea Baggers, Boehner is allowing the inmate to run the asylum. He's shamelessly bowing down to keep his position as Speaker and abandoning his constituents back in Ohio. In some circles that's known as Selling Out... ROFLMAO

The disagreement isn't between Republicans and Democrats it's a war within the Republican Caucus. The Dems are advised to be quiet and watch from afar.

You may think that's good news, but It's not for republicans. The system is crashing because of the heavy traffic trying to log on.

That is not good news for those of you hoping the program sinks.

There is only but so much traffic that can get through at one time.

If you could just log on with no problems anytime that would be an indication the system wasn't busy, but there is no doubt the capacity is exhausted and will be for the first few days.

Boehner is looking to cash in like Newt Gingrich did after he was booted from the position as House Speaker after the Federal Shutdown in 1996.
Slick move. It's a shameless move to put his well being before those of the Americans he serves in Congress, but it's a save your own arse kind of proposal.
He'll cash in on book deals, and speaking engagements and rake in millions at the expense of Soldiers on the front lines, and Troops away from their families going unpaid while he collects his pension and speaking fees.
Being another disgraced Republican speaker doesn't matter to him in the end, because he's going to get paid.
More greasy doings.
Yawn, look turnip, the shut down had nothing to do with Newts management style, he just pissed off other republicans because he made them get off the fence, just as Cruz is doing. You are what you vote pookie. By the way, after the last shut down, the republicans gained in both houses.

How is the terroristic approach good for dems and bad for repubs. In case you weren't paying attention, there is a fine for not signing up. A mandate does not make ACA a good venture, just a forced one. If it were based on choice to sign or not to sign and it was crashing then I would agree with you.

I'm having a problem understanding how your post above correlates to the Healthcare.gov site crashing due to the heavy influx of traffic today.

Much like the medical facilities will be. NICE! See, when people have insurance, they want to exercise it. You pay car insurance because you own and drive the car. Get the picture?

Reply to your post claiming that you believe the site is crashing because people so desire to enroll. Nope, they are trying to enroll because it's MANDATED! It's either that, or fall prey to the insurers scooping up the remains.

It's the same-old-same-old which we have been seeing for the last six years ..... the Republican Party in Washington attempting to deliberately sabotage and undermine our own Government only in an attempt to make the Democrat Party look bad. They don't care in the least that these tactics are hurting American citizens. They did it with recovery from the recession and they are still doing it.

Last Monday (9-30-13) Republican Rep. King stated the problem is that tea party conservatives are driving the Republican agenda in the House .....

"We have people in the conference, I believe, who'd be just as happy to have the government shut down. They live in these narrow echo chambers. They listen to themselves and their tea party friends. That keeps them going, forgetting that the rest of the country thinks we're crazy."

I'm not the only one who feels this way about how the 'new' Republican Party is behaving. This week some of the moderate Republicans expressed frustration with the tactics of other Republican congressional leaders.

Former Republican Senator Snowe made the statement that the Republican tactics are hurting the party and America .....

"This isn't a party that I recognize and the party I joined when I first enrolled, and that's regrettable."

In sizing up the situation Democrat Senator Reid said it best .....

"They are fixated on embarrassing our president, the president of the United States."

The Republican Party also made their intent very clear about intentionally sabotaging recovery from the recession and now causing a government shutdown in this statement said by Kentuckyís Republican Senator Mitch McConnell (Senate Minority Leader) when President Obama was elected to his first term in office .....

"For the next two years, we canít let you (Obama/Biden) succeed in anything. Thatís our ticket to coming back."

A huge problem is the Republicans in Congress are acting like spoiled obnoxious brats because they didn't get their way on the Healthcare Act. This morning I watched a bit of the congressional meeting concerning the shutdown. Rather than talk about the shutdown and budget all the Republican leaders did was rant about 'Obamacare'.

Even in this some of the Republican Party's own members are showing their annoyance at the Party's conduct. Senator John McCain (remember him? He was the Republican presidential nominee in the 2008 election) said that any attempt to repeal Obamacare would fail because of Obama's veto, which would require a two-thirds majority in the Senate to overcome.

Not a good thing to shut down the US Government and hurt working families only in another attempt to attack the healthcare law by wanting anti-healthcare amendments attached to the budget.
