    Or let me put it this way, what use is a engine of car if the car has no chassis to hold the engine in.
    the constitution sets up our government, however it lets the upper and lower house write its own rules.

    It's cheaper than waiting until you get sick.

Therefore, by default, you can't criticize the president for not negotiating, you can only criticize the tea party and their complaisant republican allies!

    P.S. This point is unbeatable, really...
    not correct! it was build on republican government, not democratic government

    How is a government supposed to do that if it cannot do the basic requirement of staying open.

    Keeping the government is a essinatial part governing, you have to do it. It is a requirement like having a working engine to operate car or needing nails, wood, and Hammer to build a shed.

    It is one of the unspoken duties of government.

    Yes, except every point you just made is a lie! If these things are really going to be a problem, then why not wait one year, and then come back with the evidence, at which point we can all reasonably agree to repeal the Affordable care act--THAT IS, UNLESS THE REPUBLICANS KNOW THEIR POINTS ARE LIES, THAT THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT WILL PROVE THEM WRONG, THAT THEY REALLY ONLY CARE ABOUT THEIR ALREADY FAT POCKETBOOKS, AND THAT, LASTLY, THEY ARE ONLY MAKING AN IMPOSSIBLE DEMAND SO THAT THEY CAN SAY DEMOCRATS ARE UNWILLING TO NEGOTIATE!

    I will put it this why, ..when you are born in this world, not you are mandated by law, force to buy private sector product, even though you do not want it.

    please do not site car insurance......its a poor argument.

    Calm down, no need to shout. Why can't the rest of us get the same reprieve the insiders get? If they're so sure this is a beneficial program, why give any exceptions? And you should know very well that the longer a government program is allowed to establish it's footprint the larger the liklihood it can never be destroyed. Obamacare is headed for Too Big To Fail status - we have to head it off before it gets there.

    The House is in session, the Senate is in session, and the President is in town. What's missing for a negotiation to take place?
