    All those part time, minimum wage jobs are real money makers, huh?

    It is not the Republicans who are trying to force this destructive ObamaCare scam on the American people. The blame for this mess falls solidly on the Democrats.

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    The people don't want Obamacare and the Democrats shutdown the government to protect it. Don't count your chuckens before they hatch.

    Obamacare is law, period. It's the republicans who were willing, and succeeded, in shutting down the entire government because they couldn't get their way through normal governance.

    Re: Blue Ridge hotel defies Park Service shutdown

    While I agree that closing this mom-and-pop business that uses no federal employees and receives no federal funding is a bad move, I also think it's disingenuous to blame the President for it.

    Process, ladies and gentleman...

    The Park Services department, like all other departments of government, operate as their own entity. Could the President intervene? Sure, but then he'd be doing exactly as so many people say he shouldn't - sticking his nose in issue where he doesn't belong.

    Nonetheless, I agree with those who say that the Park Service is wrong here. Had they closed Blue Ridge Parkway this would be a different story. But they didn't. Moreover, since the Inn doesn't have federal employees on its staff nor use federal funds to operate, they should be left alone.

    With all that job growth there's no need for the ACA. Just go buy a policy. No problem.

    Such a revisionist attitude.

    but then i would not expect you to be able to appreciate that non-nuanced distinction

    and hannity did get it wrong like you VERY wrong. there is no Obamacare provision allocating subsidies to congress and its staff
    Sorry dude, you did say this:

    Are you saying the polls favor Obamacare?
