    Robots, definitely robots! I prefer to think that than a POTUS who refers to Republicans as "enemies." Some of those "enemies" voted for him the first time, but when learned they were enemies, he lost their votes in his reelection. Not that he needed them, of course, but perception is important, you know. As far as Reid is concerned, I have no idea where he is coming from, except that he is definitely partisan, too, so he only seems to represent half the people, as does the POTUS. sad...

    Greetings, Unitedwestand13.

    Well said. This administration only represents - only WANTS to represent half the people - while demonizing, vilifying, and segregating the other half.

    Proof that it is the Democrats who are holding the government hostage, not the Republicans.
    This is just the same thing as passing a budget that defunds healthcare, they are trying to fund everything except the healthcare law. The Republicans want to pick and choose, either fund the entire government or face the backlash for shutting it down.

    This administration is pushing for a totalitarian government and obedient populace - think Mao - just super progressive...

    Their intent is no different....

    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Progressives feel entitled to whatever they want when they want it and this just goes to prove that....

    Remember when a 5-year-old wants a candy bar and throws a fit for one and mommy says no - it's never their fault for acting like the children they are - it's "mommies fault."

    Well you're seeing the same thing happen today on capitol hill - democrats are the 5-year-olds crying for candy and republicans are the parent saying "no." "No" being Obamacare.

    "if you don't give me candy mommy I'm not going to clean my room"
    The Republicans are acting the same way. If they can't repeal Obamacare, they won't do anything. They are expecting the Senate to rubber stamp the House bills, and when they don't we hear "Where's the Senate?" They're flushing your crap, that's where they are. And instead of learning their lesson, they just go and do it again.

    The Democrats could compromise more, if they wanted too. However, sending up the same bill time after time to be voted down time after time doesn't exactly help the situation either.

    Not that I'd expect you to see that.

    We keep electing the same clowns over again, and expect the circus will be different this time. Then somebody says "term limits" but still votes for the incumbent. Until the American people wake up and realize that the worst thing they could possibly do is vote for the same party, this is what you get.

    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    And the problem with defunding ACA?

    That's where funding happens, in the budgetary process. That being said, the Democrats are the ones holding that process up. How you fail to see that blows my mind.
