As a government shutdown looms, tensions are rising within Republican ranks.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) had choice words for fellow House Republicans who are willing to see the government shut down over their opposition to Obamacare:“Lemmings with suicide vests,” he called them.

“They have to be more than just a lemming. Because jumping to your death is not enough,” he said.

“You have this group saying somehow if you’re not with them, you’re with Obamcare. If you’re not with their plan — exactly what they want to do, you’re with Obamcare. It’s getting a little old,” he said.

Nunes said he would support House leadership’s latest strategy: A bill that would keep the government open but delay the individual mandate for a year. But he said that approach means a government shutdown will be all but certain.

The result for his party?“You guys ever watch 16 Candles?” he asked a small group of reporters.“You guys remember Long Duk Dong at the end? That’s going to be us tomorrow, waking up on the grass, crashed automobile. That’s us.”

What this "Way In Over His Head" President won't address is why are there so many people employed by the govt. They are one of the largest employers yet they don't produce ANYTHING!&#65279; And I'm not referring to the millions of armed forces, firemen, police, etc! I'm speaking of the countless nonsensical depts that waste ridiculous amounts of tax dollars. Like EPA/Dept of AG letting farmers crops dry up in California while they preserve a 2" fish called the delta minnow!

You sound really angry today, chimpy. Worried you might die of starvation without your gvt cheese during the shutdown??
I think it is sad that Republicans are throwing a tantrum and willing to let the government shut down if they don't get their way. However I am happier than a child in Disneyland at the prospect that Republicans are so willing to cut their own throats. They could cut my income in half and I would still make more than you penris.

Remember, legislating through a budget bill is against the rules the House Republicans are supposed to be following.

The Affordable Care Act was passed by the House and Senate. Get over it.

Within the Republican party? Yep.

"The circus created the past few days isn’t reflective of mainstream Republicans -- it projects an image of not being reasonable. The vast majority of Republicans are pretty level-headed and are here to govern,” said Representative Michael Grimm, a New York Republican.

"This is a moment in history for our party to, once and for all, put everything on the table. But at some point we’re going to come together and unify,” Grimm said, adding that the “far-right faction” of the party “represents 15 percent of the country, but they’re trying to control the entire debate.”

"It’s a CIVIL WAR that has beset the party before, as base activists grow impatient with established leaders they claim have grown complacent in the anti-government fight. The results can be unpredictable, perhaps more so this time given that it’s taking place 13 months before the next election."

The ACA took into account leechers like yourself.
If you received medical advice, diagnosis, care, or treatment within the 6 month period preceding your enrollment in an insurance plan, the insurance company can impose a preexisting condition exclusion for that condition. HIPAA limits the preexisting condition exclusion period for most people to 12 months (18 months if you enroll late). Good Luck with that....

Its poor people that have trouble & poor people are disproportionately black.

"Yes, It Is John Boehner's Fault
By Brendan Greeley September 30, 2013
Mitch McConnell (C), John Boehner (R) and Jon Kyl (L) speak to the media outside of the White House on Feb. 25, 2010

And not because he can’t control the Tea Party.

It’s tempting to feel sorry for House Speaker John Boehner. He seems like a reasonable man caught in a trap. His Republican majority in the House can’t decide whether a repeal or delay of the Affordable Care Act needs to be a condition of any agreement on anything else. But Boehner, along with the rest of the Republican leadership at the time, built this trap for himself in 2009 and early 2010, before the Tea Party caucus was formed.

In 2009 the Republican minority, faced with what would eventually become the Affordable Care Act, he had a choice. Obama, like every President, wanted to pass something that someone might call a “bipartisan achievement.” To get that, he needed a couple of Republicans to make an offer, a price in exchange for their votes. The answer, from the entire caucus: nothing. No price, no votes. Under any conditions. There was extraordinary, Pelosi-like discipline among Republicans in the House and the Senate. No offer, no deal, no votes.
BLOG: John Boehner's Secret Signal That a Shutdown Is Imminent

After a televised meeting with the president in late February of 2010, Boehner, then-Senator John Kyl (R-Ariz.), and Senator Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) huddled in front of the White House to answer questions.“What we think we ought to do is start over, go step by step, and target the areas of possible agreement,” said McConnell.“That’s why the bill needs to be scrapped,” said Boehner.“We need to start over on those things that we can work together on.”

Kyl, like Boehner and McConnell, agreed on some unspecified areas of future agreement. But those areas would not be reached by “tweaking” the bill, he said.“The whole concept of the bill, with its government mandates, its taxes, its spending, and all of the other features of it, are what make it unacceptable to us and to the American people,” said Kyl,“and that’s where we have to start.” McConnell then jumped in so that he, too, could say “scrap this bill.”

Scrap. Start over. Not tweakable. It was clever at the time. Sound reasonable but ensure that none of those reasonable-sounding ideas would accidentally become concessions in a bill made law. Adults could agree on modest steps to fix health care. But the Affordable Care Act was unfixable.
VIDEO: Shutdown Showdown Draws Closer to Midnight Deadline

The next month, Obama sent a letter to Republicans, offering to expand tax-favored health savings accounts, more aggressively investigate Medicare fraud, and fund demonstration projects to seek alternatives to medical malpractice lawsuits. These had all been Republican ideas, but Boehner, in a statement, gave the same answer:“There is no reason to lump sensible proposals into a fundamentally flawed 2,000-page bill.… The American people want the President to start over with a clean sheet of paper.” Scrap it. Start over. It’s not tweakable.

It doesn’t matter whether this was a cynical strategy or a sincere act of political conviction. In 2010, Boehner sent a message to the party that was still his to lead: No part of this bill is acceptable. It cannot be allowed to pass. Period.

So now he’s stuck...."

The statistics posted are correct. A majority of American's do not want or support nobamakare. You are correct it is the law of the land, for losers like you with your hand out it is like free money.

White House Petition: Designate GOP 'A Terrorist Organization' Over Looming Debt Standoff

"Designate the Republican party a terrorist organization for repeatedly threatening the full faith & credit of the U.S.A.... since repeatedly threatening to default on the full faith and credit of the United States over and over again every time you don't get what you want is essentially economic terrorism,"
