    True, they have not accomplished it. However, and I have no insider info, I believe their mindset is that they will get the delay or the gov't will remain "shutdown" for lack of better terms.

    Only weak due to their representation of their electorate...

    will the republicans try to demand the delay of the affordable care act in exchange for raiseing the debt ceiling.

    And the fact most of the seats were basically Republican seats before Bush.

    Alabama's 2nd congressional district - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Arizona's 5th congressional district - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    New York's 25th congressional district - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Those are just 3 examples of Republicans winning in districts that are largely Republican with 1-2 Democrats elected every few years. Please, stop blowing it out of proportion.

    No...your premise that it is something to write home about is flawed. As I said. Condescension fail, Einstein.

    In teapartybizarroworld maybe. Meanwhile since ACA passed, health care costs have increased at a slower rate than any time in recent history.

    Go figure. The facts don't match your bizarre narrative.

    LOL. To bad for you that everyone doesn't have a short memory.

    The voters in Mass elected Scott Brown so that his vote would stop Obamadon'tcare. Then at the last minute, good 'ol Harry pulled the plug on the legislative process and began the reconciliation process. Obamadon'tcare could not have been passed had 'ol Harry played by the normal rules. And you want to talk to people about the legislative process? LOL. You will get Obamas useful idiots to go along with you but that's about it.

    Oh, the liberal cry babies are out in force, aren't they. It must be horribly pathetic to get so emotionally traumatized by such a non event as this. Hey liberals, clean your diapers and get a hold of yourselves. The government is closed, the sky isn't falling. You can all survive this, I promise. In fact, a day or two without your daddy holding your hand through life might actually do you some good.
