Let's face it, the politicians of BOTH parties and the PRESIDENT are playing games.
The rest of the USA population is trying to live their lives.
Our government, Washington, DC and it's political inhabitants, consultants, reporters, etc are SO OUT OF TOUCH with the rest of America.
We do not have 75% of OUR healthcare covered by taxpayers as government workers and our politicans do.
We foot our OWN healthcare bills. The bottom of the barrel healthcare payment plans with high deductibles.
We try to go on vacations, pay the costs and then are shut out and deprived of the ability to see National Parks. WE PAY for them, yet WE are denied the opportunity to view, even WALK in these parks.
And it IS President Obama who has the power, can issue directives to keep these parks open. But the man is inflexible, a poor manager, a lousy leader and FAILED CEO.
Shame on the Democrats for not pushing for compromise.
If former President Bill Clinton could compromise, so can't President Obama.
But President Obama likes to punish, humiliate the 'typical' Americans.
POOR, POOR LEADERSHIP in the White House.
President Obama = FAILURE to LEAD

That would give the politicians 355 days off. Give em more time to crawls the halls looking for a cable media camera to bloviate on.

Actually, millions of people don't "foot" their own
They have no insurance and no money and when they
or their kids get sick they head for the emergency room
of the nearest hospital and get treatment, the most
expensive kind of treatment.
And the treatment isn't free.
Guess who pays?
That's what the Affordable Care Act is all about.
Giving people who have no insurance, or very poor
insurance, a chance to get some medical care other
than very expensive emergency room care.
Without the rest of us having to pick up the tab.
Sounds so simple to me.
But so terribly complicated to the conservative mind
all filled with fears and prejudices.
Home schooling will do that to you.

So remind us again, who picks up the 'subsidies' tab? The insurance companies win big time because you are REQUIRE to buy their product. The rich, like those in congress are exempt, the poor get free/subsidized insurance and the working people pay for both. What a deal. Would you happen know when the $2500 in insurance cuts Obama promised for working people will start?

wrong answer liberal,
actually millions of people are having a free ride on the backs of the White taxpayer.
any area of the country where Whites have become a minority can no longer pay its bills while you keep babbling about prejudices, a White soldier gets stabbed to death and those few media reporting it say its not a hate crime. you brainwashed jerks are killing your country and your race.

Or is it just more RW bullsh*t?

reading your posts you reminded me of someone else I had read...
“I don't see much future for the Americans ... it's a decayed country. And they have their racial problem, and the problem of social inequalities ... my feelings against Americanism are feelings of hatred and deep repugnance ... everything about the behaviour of American society reveals that it's half Judaised, and the other half negrified. How can one expect a State like that to hold together?”
― Adolf Hitler, Hitler's Secret Conversations, 1941-1944
