By contrast, why is Boehner not letting the House vote on things he knows will succeed? Like, say, funding the government.
He has. Repeatedly. You really need to read more.

You suit your clown suit. Virtually everyone with a pulse knows that if Boehner were to let the whole House vote on the government funding bill, the shutdown would be over in an hour or two. Have you had yours checked?

So tell me. When you pay your personal bills, do you write one big check and send it in someplace to cover all your debts?

How on earth is that the correct way to pay the country's bills? Boehner and the House have wisely offered to pay bills separately. Not refuse to pay. Pay separately.

Accountability: What the Left fears.

Handle the individually-presented items. The shutdown would be over in a few hours.

Pass the legislation proposed a week before the shutdown and there wouldn't even have BEEN a shutdown.

Had Obama resisted his 'I will not negotiate' stance, there would have been no shutdown.

Had Harry Reid resisted his 'We will not negotiate' stance, there would have been no shutdown.

Obama and Reid (and you, apparently) do not understand the concept of checks and balances, or of the 'two party system'. It is not a 'one guy calls all shots' arrangement.

Why are some people so determined to see the Affordable Care Act fail?
All of the lies surrounding Obamacare, for starters. From Obama lying during his first campaign about not having a mandate, right down to it's name, "Affordable Care Act". Has nothing to do with medical care - has to do with forcing folks to purchase a product.

Youre so absurd. Sure, refuse to do anything, pout scream and shout, stall the US into a shutdown and only offer to do what needs to be done to get this country back on task as long as the guy you're negotiating with drops a national insurance program, that's law btw, something he's worked for, campaigned for, elected because of, in order to get a few high 5's amongst the tea baggers and racist old timer republicans?

Yeah, real patriotic and real productive. Face it, you don't like a black man in the White House

Careful! Republicans DO NOT ALLOW the race card! Or The Bush Card! THIS IS NOT NEGOTIABLE!!!! They will NOT compromise on these things!!

They would be trying to ruin the country no matter which democrat was in the White House. They just love America so much that, if they can't have her- no one can....

Uh clem uh its not a one party get their way or shutdown the govt system either. Smdh

@noted observer ur exactly right. The repubs aren't a smart party. They fear change to much to be logical . They r digging their own grave and the are in the senile stage of their illness. We just have to sit back and watch the train wreak of the grand "old" party.

You are factually wrong and illogical in so many ways, I wouldn't know where to begin. And frankly, I don't think the truth would change your mind.

Don't you even realize that if an uninsured person had a serious medical issue and ended up in the ER, the cost would be passed on to you? That's exactly what we have without the mandate to have one's own coverage. It costs each American an average of an extra thousand dollars a year. I didn't know Republicans were that generous to others.

Don't you realize that obama care doesnt get rid of those costs? Besides John Q. Taxpayer paying for a large portion of an individuals policy through supplements, John Q. Taxpayer is also going to be stuck paying the portion of those medical bills that insurance doesnt cover.

The party of personal responsibility is balking at personal responsibility. I'm surprised Clem isn't in an uproar because he has to buy car insurance. Forced to. Oh my.

So wtf are you complaining about then?! Especially if you're paying for these things now? With hospitals and Drs off the hook the intention is lower healthcare cost for us all. JFC something had to be done.

True. The left wing fascists would rather have ultimate control than compromise. As I recall, some guy tried that over in Germany a few years back......

You've said lots of things all along. Very few that have made sense.
