It means 22% are run by Republicans who would answer against Obamacare regardless.

Seedco. Obamacare’s fraud-stained navigators

This community-organizing group snagged lucrative multimillion-dollar navigator contracts in Georgia, Maryland, Tennessee and New York. They’ll have access to potential enrollees’ income levels, birthdates, addresses, eligibility for government assistance, Social Security numbers and intensely personal medical information.

Given the enormous responsibility to handle sensitive data in a careful, neutral manner, combined with the overwhelming pressure to boost Obamacare enrollments, you’d think the feds would only choose navigators with the most impeccable records.

Yet, less than a year ago, Seedco agreed to settle a civil fraud lawsuit “for faking at least 1,400 of 6,500 job placements under a $22.2 million federally funded contract.”

Listening to Bush come up with excuse after excuse why he invaded Iraq or listening to Republican excuses on why they shut down government.
Nothing is more pathetic than the fact our current "president" is held responsible for absolutely nothing negative.

Wow who knew ACA would be so popular, they can't even keep up. Seems they may have bought into the Republican hype that no one liked the new law as they have been overwhelmed with calls, overloaded servers, long wait times. Amazing.
Homer knew it would be a complete success once the people saw it for what it is.

So fund the government Tea Bag morons, put it to an up/down vote Boehnerhead, pass a clean bill.
The Democrats and Obama are already basking in the success of ACA.

Would that be the same ACA that even the Democrats who wrote it are now calling a trainwreck?

And, 3 years to put a system in place that is already making errors when it isn't crashing.

You guys have been saying this for over 4 years.
I agree, it took Obama far too long to take a stand against the extortionist tactics of the Republicans in Congress. I hope to see more of the same kind of backbone in the future.

Google "Republicans to blame for shutdown" and see how many hits you get. Read it and weep: The GOP is more unpopular than Obamacare!!

32. Would a shutdown put the brakes on implementing the Affordable Care Act, or "Obamacare?" No. The state-run exchanges for the uninsured would open as scheduled Tuesday. "The marketplaces will be open on Tuesday, no matter what, even if there is a government shutdown," President Obama said Friday.

33. Why not? Like Social Security or Medicaid, Obamacare is a permanent entitlement that isn't subject to annual funding by Congress. "Many of the core parts of the health care law are funded through mandatory appropriations and wouldn't be affected," Gary Cohen, the Health and Human Services Department official overseeing the health care rollout, said last week.

So basically it's just Republican Tea Baggers grandstanding.

You're either underestimating your own party giving in to every demand of a strictly partisan Republican bill with no compromises negotiable or you have no clue how a two-party system works.

Republicans would never demand total control of any law in the first place and have always reached across the aisle to get at least one Democrat on board - and always more.

We're still a two-party system, Homer. You can't just pretend like we're not here or round us up and throw us in a gulag. At least not yet.

Although I'm sure Reid is working on the logistics.

Alec, er Mr. Baldwin. Lily thinks you'd make a great mayor of New York City. But it is likely that a Democrat who is more interested in the rights of low life street thugs than public safety will soon be mayor.

I have a feeling that most Hollywierd libs, like you, won't be New Yorkers once the city turns into Detroit East or Zimbabwe West like when Dinkins was mayor.

Nada. Zip. Zero. Zilch.

The black out media wouldn't be able to gush over him and be allowed in his presence at press conferences.

They'd have to incriminate themselves because they made sure he got elected and their job is to protect him instead of us.

Harry Reid sent a bill that funded the country to the House where there are enough votes to pass it if Boehner would put it to a vote.
Day 3 of no oils subsidies to help fund Dumbwaiters job. No wonder he is experiencing a melt down.
Harry Reid can end the government shut down today. All he has to do is put the bills from the House on the Senate floor for a vote. There is no mention whatsoever of ObamaKare in any of those bills.

Perhaps that's the problem? So, Democrats are holding the government hostage, right?
