Yes we can. The House had a budget, with the socialized medicine portion cut out; the democrat-led Senate stomped their little feet and shut down the government.

Look, this whole Obamacare thing isn't about helping people; it's about Obama himself. How many people have been cut from full time work to part-time because their employers can't afford the health insurance for them?*I* got *my* hours cut on account of that fiasco. My hours have been cut, my pay has been reduced, and I'm required by federal law to buy something I probably won't be able to afford on my own. Thank you Mr. President.

It's all about Obama's ego. He's our first black president, he's a liberal, and he wants to leave his legacy as a "progressive." He doesn't care about us at all, it's just about him.

Obama was VOTED in as president by the American electorate to do a job (twice). His opposition in Congress, by effectively stating “you are president but we want it our way” are holding the country to ransom that flies in the face of democracy.
This is not only hurting Americans, particularly those who are loosing financially because of this foot stomping tantrum but it could very easily have repercussions that resonate around the world and reduce US credibility even more
Don't blame me; I voted for Romney.

Of course the GOP are stomping their feet, they're looking out for us. Over 70% of Americans do not want Obamacare. Do the Democrats care what we want? NO.

If over 70% of Americans did not want it then why is it that he was voted president - twice? Perhaps the technicalities of democracy are a bit different in the US then in the UK but not that different.
I hate to agree with RR, but he's right. The majority of Americans are opposed to Obamacare.*All* of Congress have exempted themselves and their aides from it. The labor unions--Obama's champions--have turned against it. Big Business is exempt from it. So why are the rest of us stuck with it?

We are a two-class society, in direct violation of the Constitution. Thank you for that, Mr. Obama.

Please explain to me how that is a fact and not an opinion.
Go.
I read the same buybull, and I came to the same conclusion. So did Thomas Paine, and hundreds of thousands of others.

It is a FACT that the buybull contradicts itself. You don't want to see it, and no one can force you to open your eyes. Nonetheless, it's a fact. Your buybull is NOT the word of any god.

Your buybull *is* your god.

I'm sorry you can't understand that.
Which Constantine are you talking about? Constantine I? He's the one who commissioned the buybull you are using today. It was the Council of Nicaea, in 325 CE, that compiled your "word of god," and godbots like you have been using it ever since.

Do not thank me for my "opinion;" this is FACT. Deal with it.

You blame obama, and not the healthcare industry that is truly to blame. Your rates are going up because your insurance company is being forced to do their job and insure sick people. Of course, their profits must be protected at all costs, hence the rate hikes for some.

You also have the situation backwards. Obamacare was already passed a long time ago. The house republicans *knew* that a bill that defunded obamacare would not make it through the democratic senate, and even if it somehow did, obama would veto it anyway. So, yes, maybe say that the democrats should be more open to compromise, but the fact is it's the GOP who is attempting to subvert the way things work. You don't defund a key bill that has already passed and then attempt to push it through the opposition controlled senate and then blame the opposition for shutting down the government. That's ludicrous. They had their chance to defeat the bill in the past - now they are essentially holding the government hostage because things didn't go the way they wanted.

Finally, don't take all this to mean I like obama. He's a prick, just like all presidents of recent memory.

There are people that want it, but they are nobody I know, except a few in here. Basically we think it will not only fail, but will
fail miserably. It will collapse the insurance industry, ruin the quality of heath care, drive the cost up and bring us nothing but misery.

Why don't you just answer honestly, and say "christian god?" The god of the Crusades, the god of the Inquisition and the Burning Times, the god of Salem. You want to tell us that *your* god is the one and only god; you are wrong. In reality, you don't believe in *any* god; you believe the *buybull,* a mere book written by malicious and power-hungry men. Your *god* is nothing more than paper and ink.
Have you burned any witches lately, or just a few good books?
There's no such thing as witches.
