This isn't a democracy, son. It is a democratic republic. You don't get to vote on the ACA.

No, George W. Bush's brother Jeb did that.

As it was when the right wingers fell silent when George W. Bush lied to the world about Iraq.

Yet, that is exactly what you asked the opposition to do when W. was in office.

Making you look pathetic isn't even challenging any more.
Too late, pal, you exposed yourself with your gay slurs. You're not a real liberal, you some kind of anti-gay weirdo & freak. Tiny minds like yours always trip themselves up.

"Re-election is a mandate". Rubbish. You know it, I know it, the whole world knows it. He lost the House in 2010 and didn't get it back in 2012. He's so desperate to get it back in 2014, he created this shut down hoping to blame it on the Republicans.

But he's been exposed already as a liar: IRS, Fast & Furious, NSA, FEC, Benghazi, etc. Nobody believes the Child President anymore. Not even YOU! LOL!

Yeah, priorities sure do change. Married forty-two years is a good thing, if you're mostly happy. The current state of dating and finding a mate is scary enough to keep us all married!

Total crap, sweetie. Get a brain. Quit borrowing thoughts from online liberal BS sites.
We elected an inexperience amateur who thinks that being President makes him some kind of dictator. The very thought of compromise or even talking to his "enemies" is beyond Obama's tiny mind. He can talk with Putin and Assad, but he and the Democrat Senate took the weekend off before the shutdown they caused.
That says everything you need to know about his haughty contempt for the democratic process. Like a little spoiled baby, he took his ball and went home. The country, in Obama's mind, can go f*ck itself.
It was the Republican-controlled congress that wouldn't compromise, but chose to hold the government's economy hostage by using Obamacare to throw their tantrum. It was the Republicans who didn't care about the mess a shutdown would create. Just like you and the other crybabies here, the Republicans entire agenda is about getting Obama and anything he supports.

They've all been angry since they lost the White House, and they've been seeking revenge ever since.

You've got it all wrong, sonny.

And don't tell me what I can post and what I can or cannot think.

On the enduring effort to kick poor people in the teeth
“This is a defining moral issue of our time,” U.S. Rep Steve Southerland, R-Tallahassee, told the Washington Post in a mostly fawning profile published last week. Southerland was talking about food stamps, which he hates because he thinks they make people dependent leeches. He believes that God wants us to work, that “work is the greatest gift you will ever receive,” as he lectured one former food-stamp recipient. His aides call this the “Gospel of Work.” And so on Sept. 19 he pushed House Republicans to vote to reduce or eliminate benefits for 3.8 million food-stamp recipients, mostly seniors and children.

“Try Reuters.”

CEOs Warn Of 'Extremely Adverse' Effects Of Debt Ceiling Standoff

Reuters | By Jeff Mason and Mark Felsenthal

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/02/ceos...

WASHINGTON, Oct 2 (Reuters)- Chief executives from major financial institutions met with President Barack Obama on Wednesday and warned of "adverse" consequences if government agencies remain closed and if lawmakers failed to raise the U.S. debt ceiling by mid-October.

Congressional Republicans and the White House are in a stalemate over government funding, which has forced the first government shutdown in 17 years.

Republicans, seeking to stop Obama's signature health care act, have tied spending bills for the fiscal year that started Oct. 1 to defunding or delaying the law, a course rejected by the president and his fellow Democrats.

The two sides are also at odds about an Oct. 17 deadline to raise the U.S. borrowing limit.

Goldman Sachs chief executive Lloyd Blankfein, while stressing that the business leaders who met with Obama represented diverse political views, implicitly criticized Republicans for using their opposition to the healthcare law as a weapon that could lead to a U.S. default.

"You can litigate these policy issues. You can re-litigate these policy issues in a political forum, but they shouldn't use the threat of causing the U.S. to fail on its ... obligations to repay on its debt as a cudgel," Blankfein said.

While the government closure has already had repercussions from frustrated tourists turned away from national parks to canceled stops on Obama's Asia trip, the deadline for raising the nation's debt limit poses a much graver risk.

If Congress fails to raise the $16.7 trillion borrowing cap, the United States would go into default, likely triggering financial market shockwaves around the world.

"There's no debate that the seriousness of the U.S. not paying its debts ... is the most serious thing we have, and we witnessed that in August '11 and you saw the ramifications: a slowdown in the economy," said Brian Moynihan, chief executive of Bank of America.(cont.)

"hoe"
Just a couple of points on your above post.
- Republicans do not control congress, they have a majority in the house, democrats have the majority in the senate. So one more time you lied.
- A majority of American's do not support obamakare, so house
republicans are listening to the public
- Offer me one instance of the boy president nobama compromising on nobamakare, just one
"hoe" please continue to post and offer what you think, the BS you present is always good for a laught.
Peace
