The ACA was passed.
All the Republicans were there, every one of them.
They lost.
It is law.
The Country Lost. Now they will get even.

Low Information Voters haven't figured out yet that Obama's pass to big business being included in the October start, only throws the monkey on the backs of individuals. That's the whole purpose of Obama's strategy. If the company doesn't give health care, the individual is forced to go into Obama's trap and sign up at an exchange where the copays are high and the coverage is low. Obama is the one giving big business a break. Wake up loons, Obama's screwing you again.

It's not up for negotiation.
What if the Democrats decided to take on a universal background check rider to the resolution?
Boner had already agreed to- proposed- a clean CR before the tea baggers decided on this poison pill strategy.

Funding priorities should be up for negotiation when considering how much the taxpayers are to be burdened.
If not at this time, then when?

Obama to Boner 10:30am this morning, I won't negotiate.

Obama in speech at 1:00- I HAVE BEEN WILLING TO NEGOTIATE ALL ALONG. Obama is still one lie after another. Worthless.

One lie after another for the last 100,000 plus posts, Au Dumbo- you and your other aliases.

PS: what Obama said...
"I heard a lot of talk over the weekend that the real problem is, is that the president will not negotiate. Well, let me tell you something. I have said from the start of the year that I'm happy to talk to Republicans about anything related to the budget. There is not a subject that I am not willing to engage in, work on, negotiate and come up with common-sense compromises on.

"What I've said is that I cannot do that under the threat that if Republicans don't get a hundred percent of their way, they're going to either shut down the government or they are going to default on America's debt so that America for the first time of history does not pay its bills. That is not something I will do. We're not going to establish that pattern. We're not going to negotiate under the threat of further harm to our economy and middle-class families. We're not going to negotiate under the threat of a prolonged shutdown until Republicans get a hundred percent of what they want. We're not going to negotiate under the threat of economic catastrophe that economists and CEOs increasingly warn would result if Congress chose to default on America's obligations."

Mr. Obama will NOT be "negotiating" the terms of the already-passed-and-in-effect ACA, you dumbass.

Quit making up absurd s--t and pretending it's real. You must be mentally ill.

Seems he had that pattern down pat in 2006 and didn't care about a default then.
----------
"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a Sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies....Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that 'the buck stops here'. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and Grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."

Yesterday, the 12th day of a government shutdown, Senate Republicans made the crisis worse by blocking a measure to raise the debt limit so the country can pay its bills. Within days, the Treasury Department expects the government will run out of borrowing authority and default. One of the immediate impacts could be a significant increase in interest rates on mortgages, credit cards, student loans and other debts owed by ordinary Americans.

The Republicans, who have been demanding that in order to reopen the government and pay our debts the Affordable Care Act have to be repealed, are now demanding concessions on Social Security, Medicare and other programs.

The leader of this gambit is House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, the 2012 candidate for vice president who ran on a ticket that lost by 5 million votes.

It is imperative that Republicans stop holding the American people hostage and let us reopen the government and pay our bills. Frankly, given the enormous problems facing this country, it is beyond belief that we have wasted weeks debating whether, for the first time in our history, the largest economy in the world should default and plunge the world into a severe financial crisis.

Amazingly, the rank and file tea partiers believe only the propaganda that their wealthy masters feed them. That’s how they can so confidently blame everyone else for their own bad behavior. The died-in-the-wool faithful among them believe anarchy is in America’s best interest and are rejoicing their success. Meanwhile, mainstream Republicans are growing increasingly disgusted with their parasitic infestation, but many remain in complete denial and believe they actually love them as much as ever.

Nahh...people with common sense would have gotten several Washington cops to patrol the monuments. The taxpayer subsidizes that half slum city anyway with lots of federal money. Who the hell is faux?

And that left out progressives from when the movement went insane. In the end if the so called teabaggers don't win, they will join the fray and learn the collecting game. As the percentage of collectors rises and the percentage of taxpayers lowers, it will be moot point anyway. Our forefathers and previous generations left us with abundance. And we blew it.
