    Re: CNN Poll: GOP would bear the brunt of shutdown blame [W:176]

    This thread seems quite large.
    There's this much to talk about, regarding the gov shutdown?
    No, I didn't read the thread. Well, I read the mod warnings.

    Personally, I think it's the fault of all of em. And by extension, all of us.
    And we're making it worse.
    They know we're all watching them atm. They know whoever gives in will at the least have some issues come reelection time.

    So I think this will take awhile to work out.

    Maybe the Tea Partiers should stop listening to only their own constituents, and start listening to ALL of America.

    Actually, Washington Needs To Stop Listening To America
    Do you get any news where you live, companies are dropping their plans so how do you keep a plan that no longer exists. How do you keep a doctor that is no longer accepting govt. healthcare? What you want to ignore is that Obamacare isn't popular, does nothing to lower costs, and does nothing to improve quality but because Obama says it is a good thing that is all that matters.

    I really hate the fact that the T.E.A. Party is getting such a bad rap from people like you and others. Don't understand why everyone isn't a member.

    Fresh from a beating on Syria, the media would have spent the last two weeks covering the disastrous ACA rollout. Republicans could have held hearings highlighting the problem followed by a bill delaying the mandate for a year. Obama and the Democrats would have taken a huge hit fighting such a "reasonable"

    But you skipped this part.....which I understand why:



    Those are diametrically opposed, one is "boot-strappy", the other is "socialism". I'm all for neighbor helping neighbor, whether that neighbor is next door, across the street or across the city or across the country.
    Didn't read the article, did you? What is it going to take for you to admit that the Federal Govt. spends too much money and the Obama economic policies a disaster?

    Because most of us have brains and cant think rationally.


    The ACA is viewed favorably by about as many people as view it unfavorably.

    Health Tracking Poll: Exploring the Publicís Views on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) | The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation

    Although this might change. A new WSJ poll has found lots more people view it favorably recently. Maybe its because its hard to understand until you see the exchanges in action.
    The Republicans’ worst poll yet

    The individual provisions within the plan are overwhelmingly favorable - no pre-existing conditions, extending coverage to age 26, etc.

    I wouldn't suggest assuming the polls go beyond the immediate shutdown because in the end if the Democrats get everything they want they will be seen as the champions who saved a broken system that is unpopular. Not much political meat on that bone.

    What is it going to take to get you to admit that "taking responsibility for yourself" and "neighbors helping neighbors" are diametrically opposed?

    We'll see how "overwhelming favorable" those provisions are once people have to start paying for them.
