    Sure, it can be defunded, put it up for a vote. That's not what they're doing. They're threatening to keep the government shut down, harming the lives of millions of people, because they CAN'T get it defunded without a filthy trick that is as anti-American as minced meat pie. And the House wants "all Americans treated the same way?" Are you kidding me? These are the people who are best friends with lobbyists and pass legislation that caters to multimillion dollar corporations while simultaneously hurting the poor. Please, these politicians are bought and paid for, and that's what this is all about. The ACA hurts the big guns in the health care industry and they have to appease their donators. Any support from people like you probably has them laughing "he's fighting against his own best interests! Hilarious!"

    Are you kidding me? you think that Obamacare with all its exemptions negotiated with the Obama Administration was part of the ACA act passed solely by Democrats? Got it, Obama can negotiate with backers and supporters but not with the People's House and Republican majority. Sorry ,not kidding you at all, Obama shutdown the govt. and the Republicans did what they were charged with doing when winning the 2010 and 2012 House control.

    You need to stop reading the left propaganda and think for a change. Please don't talk to me about lobbyists as this Administration has done nothing to curb lobbyists. It is amazing how people buy the Obama rhetoric and ignore the Obama results. Maybe rather than worry about those evil corporations that create jobs you ought to worry about the union bosses and their six figure salaries that do nothing but cost jobs.

    Who are the teabaggers? Are they some democrat group? Now, the Tea Party, there are some patriots. Oh, wait, it's a little childish thing you are doing. Why, that is so clever!

    LOL.....Patriots?.....Hey.....I know, lets both encourage the teabaggers to keep pushing the GOP to the extreme right-wing....alienating the independents, moderates and the reasonable Republicans. Maybe the Teabaggers can succeed in purging the party of all except for the extremist of the extremes. We both would like that......right?

    Re: Obama Address the Nation on the government shutdown.

    It will be interesting to see the effects of Obama and the Democrats shutting down the entire government in a tantrum over not getting one thing they want.

    I haven't listened to a word Obama has said or a word the "liberal media" has said. My information has come from my local newspaper, Republican talk radio, and, more than anything, CSPAN. When the House members were trying to get a bill passed on Saturday, the Republicans were in a secret conference all morning and afternoon, refusing to speak to the press, the Democrats, or even relay information to congress about what was going on. The idea that Obama has caused this shutdown is ABSURD. What if Democrats had refused to fund the government unless Bush retracted his tax cuts? Would you then have said that Bush shut down the government because the Democrats were doing what they were elected to do? Would you have said Bush shut down the government if we had a shutdown because the Democrats refused to fund the war effort in Iraq or Afghanistan? Please. You're the one drinking the Kool Aid. I'm watching C-SPAN, man. C-SPAN

    You either don't know how the American government works or you don't care. Because this is not how the system works. The Republicans did everything they could to stop the ACA and they couldn't do it. Hurting Americans doesn't help them. I think that's a truism. Try winning the next election, not hurting the country.

    Are you serious? No, you can't be. Nobody can truly believe this.

    Umm, it's the other way around. I thought I should help clarify that.

    Re: Obama Address the Nation on the government shutdown.

    I think what we are seeing here is Obama setting a tone, clearly sending a message, drawing a line in the sand, if you will. Half baked laws that this administration passes will stand, so get used to it.
