It would seem easy for the extremist demanding the repeal or delay of Obamacare to equally demand the defunding of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.
We get this is a test run to see if the Tea Bags can disrupt America and roll back workers rights and turn America into a third world country after confiscating wage earners social security and medicare contributions over decades only to throw those who've earn their benefits into the streets and force each and every typical Wage earn into a coerced compliance of forced labor for the benefit of the Titans of Industry
This is taking a page out of the government of China's book.

Hint; It was a Democratic President that raided the social security trust and made it part of the budget. BUt what the hell is truth for you guys anyway. It was Johnson (Dem) oh and he also had a democratic controlled senate. Sound familiar???

The great irony for Boehner is that, while genuflecting before the Tea Party nuts, he is harming whatever reputation he has, rather than salvaging it. His obeisance to these crazies becomes more transparent to most Americans with each passing day.
Boehner would be wise to reject these hatemongering extremist fools and join the majority of the people. America, and the rest of the world, are watching.
Boehner is a very weak man, and you gonna make him cry, again. Boehner wanna keep his speakership so bad, he'll do anything to keep it, even if it takes t-baggng Rush...

. Boehner is no leader, just a place holder!

Needless to say--but I will anyway--that I disagree.

The facts agree with my disagreement, so I guess I agree with you that the facts are indifferent to my disagreement. Do you see what I did there? I used twisted logic just like you progressives.

Twisted logic is all teabaggers have in their armamentarium. If you believe the whole Congress would not vote to end the shutdown unconditionally, a pretzel has no chance against you.

The shutdown is a fund raising gimmick by Obama, Reid and Pelosi..

DNC 'Nearly' Broke

According to Fortune Magazine, the Democrat National Committee is in some deep financial trouble. "The Democratic National Committee remains so deeply in the hole from spending in the last election that it is struggling to pay its own vendors."
