I said nothing about repeal; I spoke of funding and, yes, he'd sign it, or the government would shut down for as long as he refused. He couldn't stand that because he LOVES government and he'd cave. The House should send a bill that funds all of government except Øbama-scare and tell Harry Reid that's all you're getting--no negotiation, no compromise on Øbama-scare--and dare him not to bring it to the floor of the Senate. Let Reid shut down government.
You are now even further away. A government shutdown would damage what is left of the Republican Party. It could even destroy it. It might be worth it at that.

Most people are slow to learn the details of Obamacare. Communication has been poor. But the more they understand it, the more they like it. That is what is slowly happening now.

What? Do you think the republicans who controlled the Congress (that's both the House and Senate to you republicans) from 1994 - 2006 , and the Presidency from 2000 - 2008, and performed more filibusters to STOP legislation from 2007 to now really did not Appoint any corporate leaders to cabinet posts? OMG....as department heads?
YOu guys REALLY need to understand your party before showing your ignorance of the history of the republican fascist movement.

GOP??? Town hall meetings? Will these be in the bush style where they mace and arrest anyone who asks a question they don't like?
Who would go to such a meeting? Why would anyone just want to end up in jail for nothing?

Don't you recognize your messiah Obastard's speech pattern when you see it.

Oops, my mistake...I forgot that is would sound very different from where your head would be, up Obastard's ass.

This is how he sounds to those on the outside, read it again and this time put your hand over your mouth to simulate what it would sound like from his colon.

Nobody trusts the same old incompetent leadership of the RINOs of the GOP. Why does the GOP leadership support the spying on each and every American and collecting his e-mails during 3 or more years of the Obama dictatorial regime of lies? It is time for the failed GOP leadership and establishment that act like spineless losers that is ‘going along’ the Obama anti-American, lawless, constitution trashing and Mozlem Brother Sympathizer agenda to retire. All these same old for lifetime politicians including the ‘same as liberal RINO including McConnell, McCain, Graham, Boehner that fight for their seat for lifetime while sacrificing the American constitution that is trashed on a daily basis by Obama &co. need to give way to the patriotic American conservative leaders including Ted Cruz and Rand Paul and let them save America before it is too late.
Crux and Paul aren't patriotic...they want to make us dumber and poorer than the communist chinese so that their insider trader investments in Chinese companies can come here and work our children at $3.50 for a 12 hour day.

Follow up what they vote for before buying into the ads.

Lotsa democrats are going..and challenging the teabaggers to some tough questions they can't answer....and they are looking like fringe wild eyed fools for mentioning impeaching Obama..only the HOUSE can impeach...and even the Issa can't find any charges on Obama.

In short, the republcian party has lost its right to exist and they sold it to a bunch of wing nut radicals the moderate and liberal republican hate.

Shut it down. I won't even notice, except they'll be out of my face for a while.

Poor communication? Bwa-ha-ha-bwa-ha-ha-bwa-ha-ha. This train-wreck known as Øbama-scare has been explained ad nauseum, ad infinitum since March 2010 and it still stinks on high to those with a greater than 50 IQ?

You are certainly one of those on the outside. Just think. Obama was re-elected without your vote.

It is clear that your objection to Obamacare has little to do with the program itself (of which I'm sure you are completely ignorant), and much to do with the fact that it is Obama's program.
Obamacare will not be repealed or de-funded. Put that in your hookah and smoke it.

Pansy? That's what you have as a reply? Point to one false or speculative statement. Oh, but don't let 'truth' get in the way, pr!ck.
sure, beeyotch:

Any law passed....that not one person voting in favor had read

>>link?

that's nearly 3,000 pages, requiring (to date) about 23,000 pages of regulations

>>link?

that the Supreme Court had to re-write to bring it to a quasi-Constitutional standard

>>The USSC never "rewrote" the ACA, and has not that Constitutional power

that Øbama cannot implement timely

>>he can implement it as he sees fit

has to grant waivers, special protections from it and waivers to 'special' people and groups

"has to?" wrong again

that already costs more than double its estimate

>>link? you're lying again...what was it's 'estimate?'

that has caused and will continue to cause the country's labor force to be predominately part-time

>>link to jobs which have become part-time

that has and will continue to drive up individual and group insurance premiums

>>link to evidence of this?

that will necessarily cause a shortage of health care providers

>>"necessarily " according to whom? it will provide more business to health care providers and more timely payments as well

that still will not cover 30,000,000 people

>>link? relevance?

that robbed $700 billion from medicare

>>lol...this was refuted years ago, no money was "robbed" from medicare, dunce, payments to providers were reduced as a cost-saving measure

I mean, sseriously, if you can't do better than this why don't you deserve to be insulted?:)
