    How is it a "political game"? The disaster called Obamacare is preventing people from getting jobs and regulating many others to part time job status. Not to mention many people losing the insurance they already had or making insurance to expensive to get or keep.

    If the Dems insist on destroying Americans future with this disaster law they passed, they can and will pay the price again at the voting booth. For the GOP, this disaster law that the Dems are totally and completely responsible for, it's the gift that just keeps on giving. Either way, defunding of the disaster Obamacare or GOP gains in the Senate, America wins.

    So before you get care for a heart attack you must prove that you can and will pay for your care? Describe the process for that. Thanks.

    And they are going to lose - big-time. I will be glad to see the GOP take a major hit for this, but I also sympathize with the American people who will be negatively impacted by this partisan stupidity dealt by the GOP..

    I Don't expect anyone to just take my word for this, but I do believe that if you wait a while you will see that I am right.

    Its either that or do nothing, with the same result. The Dems want money to spend. They require the Republicans to allow it, so what are the Dems going to offer in trade?

    There are no death panels
    there's no rationing
    no one is getting any waivers
    the ACA isn't causing tax increases
    nor job losses or increased debt

    when will you all start saying these are good things?
