    The democrats have many sins to be held accountable for, but this kind of lunacy is in a class of its own.
    The majority in the House seems to differ with you. You do realize that the "People's House" is majority Republican and that the ACA was passed without any Republican votes? Do you realize how popular ACA is? Stop paying attention to the left and the media and think for a change.

    It is exactly what has happened and will happen in the future with any budget bill. Some things get cut. Had the Dems gone about passing Obamadon'tcare in a way besides a budget bill, what is happening today probably would not be happening.
    Yours is the lie.
    1. They have passed several smaller propositions (since they shut down the govt) that would fund programs they like.
    2. You have previously NOT had the right to shut down the govt/Blackmail the country if you don't agree with an already passed (and UNSC allowed) law.
    3. Because they are hyper-partsian wack jobs, they have shut it down..
    Just let's not be under any illusion/LIE about Who has.
    The debate by the Limbaugh Lackies here is garbage-speak.
    I'm personally sick of not being able to dunk a basketball because of racism.

    the senate is doing what the people of their states wanted them to do, and the president is doing what the majority of the American people who voted for him want him to do.

    and one thing about Boehners job as speaker of the house. He may be a republican, but his position is that of Speaker of the House. and that means his job is to represent both the republicans and democratic members of the house of representives.

    The Senate is doing what the corrupt political bosses that got them elected from the big cities told them to do, you know the community agitators like Obama was. You don't get it at all and probably never will. I find it interesting that Boehner's job is to represent both the Democrat and Republican members but Pelosi's job was to negotiate ACA behind closed doors and be the most political Speaker ever.

    The first part is just not true. How do I know this? Congressional approval among the people is at an all time low of 10%.

    well pelosi was a better speaker then john boehner, because she would have never allowed a part of her caucus usurp her position as leader.

    Boehner's private fight for Hill health subsidies since Feb. versus Boehner allowing an amendment against Hill health subsidies. You can'tor make this stuff up.

    A majority in this house is NOT sufficient to pass or repeal legislation. If you think the ACA is unpopular, than you can wait until the next election and hope you get enough votes to repeal the ACA legitimately. Stop pretending that your views are special and that the law should bow before you whims when you don't have electoral support to make it happen.
