They and the media are coupling that with an effort to push that a partial shutdown of the government is unthinkably horrible. I think that this will blow up in the collective faces, as only a small percentage of people will be affected by this, and probably a lot more won't be getting screwed by the government for the time of the shutdown.

    And the GOP would deserve it.

    What Boehner is doing now is Letting those who need to cause enough Mischief to make their constituents happy.
    These are the same constituents who keep wanting to "Take the country back"... from a Re-elected President. (!)

    They lost the original vote on on ACA, of Course and don't have the votes to repeal it now either.
    It was challenged in the UNSC as well and passed muster.

    So What we have then is an Unprecedented and bizarre attempt to take the budget/country hostage on that basis: a passed Law.
    If the Democrats/Prez ever allowed a small minority to be able to change/overturn a law using these tactics, it would be the end of our democracy.
    Are other members on the Right willing to shut the country down over abortion or other traditional tough issues?
    No.
    This is Personal vendetta against a bill called 'Obamacare'. The official Moniker ACA, polls considerably better than the Prez Nickname.
    Most people who are polled, don't eve know what's in it, just it's called Obamacare.

    Yes, the wack jobs can do what they were elected to do, but that doesn't mean even Boehner should humor it. He is doing so for party unity and understanding their position.
    Allowing a Clean Resolution to fund the govt to come to the floor (Boehner Could Any time) would end the protest and show those who support it they are Not a majority and cannot change the law through these tactics.
    These flat-earthers must be made to understand Obama IS the President.. Again.

    I think this will end when the Debt Ceiling issue is conjoined and Democrats make other compromises to the GOP, Not Obamacare.
    That saves face for everyone and gives Boehner some chips in the big game.
    I'm personally sick of not being able to dunk a basketball because of racism.

    Reagan inherited double digit inflation from a democrat. Carter (Obomba sr.). Compound interest on the existing debt was atrocious even if his budget was balanced.

    Do you understand compound interest?
    It's a clear case of the only people conservatives feel have a right to govern this country are Republicans, but yet Republicans are the ones who drove the fiscal sports car into the lake, beginning with Reagan, who never saw a deficit he didn't like.

    Exactly. What we see here is the "take the country back" crown holding their collective breath until their faces turn blue. Most people see right through it...mostly thanks to Ted Cruz, who cannot now help but be the poster child for this fiasco.

    Hell, even Grover Norquest is pissed at him and the nut-brigade that he unleashed.
    Grover Norquist on Ted Cruz: ‘He pushed House Republicans into traffic and wandered away’

    IMO, what we are really seeing here is racism being stretched to its maximum. Shutting the government down on the day "Obamacare" goes into effect is as obvious a sign of that as it gets.

    Calamity doesn't understand much at all, only percentage change because that she believes makes her look smart. Believe me it doesn't

    The less educated and less informed can blame republicans all they want..

    It really shows how dumb Obama's base actually is...

    ****, if I was in the House I wouldn't even offer a funding Bill - I would vote against all the republicans bills...

    It's a good time to shut this monster machine down.....

    This is the important stuff. We can’t get lost in discrimination. We can’t get lost in B.S. We can’t get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    There's not even a hint of racism in this entire thing. Unless you are talking about the democrats being racist against a mexican american.
