That shutdown meant nothing and had no effect what so ever on the 96 election.
    This time, we/I/they have the internet to keep hope alive as well as what happened in 2010 when your base doesn't vote.

    The "one year delay" rider.

    And, second, those of us who are not racists see what the Right is doing. They are setting Washington ablaze and then pointing at the Black guy while screaming, "He did it!"
    what now a racist card is being played?

    Delaying the individual mandate undermines the entire law. And cutting their own staff's healthcare is kind of a low blow by any means.

    Why would anyone have an issue with this when so many other provisions of the LAW have been altered already by the President?

    And, will you be watching the Braves laster?
    Braves don't start until around 2140hrs. I have my radio next to the computer. There's something special about listening to the ballgames on radio. I think Corbett is history
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    As I've said all along, when those on both sides of the barbed-wire are being blamed equally by those who take Rightie positions on everything, that tells you all you need to know. Dems have had enough of the one-way treachory for 56 months and are in no mood to give away a default position.

    I would imagine as we get closer to oct 17 things will come to a head.
    Yeah, you're right; however, the saying actually goes, 'It takes two to fight." But that is why we have to, by default, blame the republicans; you can't blame the president at the end of the day; otherwise, you're just making America look bad! Okay, I have killed this thread, I'm going to pick a fight in the guns section where I will be happy to spank the right, again!
    sad

    The amount of revenue expected from the business mandate was estimated to be relatively equal, so how does the delay of the employer mandate not undermine the law?

    Somehow having congress under the same laws they pass, it is just too much to expect.
