    Why was the memorial shut? Because it's not an essential government operation and Congress has not authorized it to be open at this time. Because the Republicans insist on unilateral legislative authority they don't actually possess.
    What's the partial shutdown that the Dems caused gotten them besides more anger at them?

    Once again Obamadon'tcare is the gift that just keeps on giving and giving to the GOP. Makes no difference how this partial shutdown ends. if the Dems get their way, this will have been a great reminder to everyone on who it is that is completely responsible for the disaster Obamadon'tcare. Especially when the disaster and reality hits those dumb enough to have thought this insurance was free or more affordable. Those folks are not going to be happy and they will know exactly who to blame. Everybody else who see's their rates jump pretty much already know who to blame. Everybody that has or is real soon to lose the insurance they once had, will know exactly who to blame.

    On the other hand, if the GOP gets any concession or flat out defunding of Obamadon'tcare, they get the credit and America wins.

    Heads the GOP wins, tails the GOP wins. Obama and Reid can continue their BS games with the American people but once again the longer this drags out the better for the GOP.

    3. A lot of people wait until the last minute

    ... this doesn't explain why there are less than 10 people signed up.

    If it's not the truth then why should it have to be explained?

    Keep telling yourself that. It will make 2014 all the sweeter. The number of people shocked by how much they're saving will just keep growing and growing.

You see it doesn't sound so good when the shoe is on the other foot.
    In principal? In this case the House told the President he could have the cash and he refused it. The condition they made was the temporary funding of a program. So yes. In this case the House is doing, what the constitution says it should. It is controlling the government's funding.

    Complete opposite of reality....

    "On Thursday, the government's official Obamacare Facebook page was riddled with people expressing sticker shock over the government's high cost premiums after struggling for hours to wade through the technical failures vexing Obamacare exchanges all across the country.

    "I am so disappointed," wrote one woman. "These prices are outrageous and there are huge deductibles. No one can afford this!" The comment received 169 "likes."

    "There is NO WAY I can afford it," said one commenter after using the Kaiser Subsidy Calculator. "Heck right now I couldn't afford an extra 10$ [sic] a month...and oh apparently I make to [sic] much at 8.55/hour to get subsidies."

    Obamacare Facebook Erupts with Citizen Sticker Shock

    So, although it is early on in the roll out, so far it can only be described as an unmitigated disaster.

    Oh, and that is not even to start discussing how code writers, and IT security people that have looked at the site, have described nothing less than a hackers, or identity thief's dream.

    "On Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto” on Wednesday, computer programmer and founder of McAfee, Inc. John McAfee said the online component of Obamacare “is a hacker’s wet dream” that will cause “the loss of income for the millions of Americans who are going to lose their identities.”

    For starters, McAfee said the way it is set up makes it possible for fake websites be set up to fool people to think they’re signing up for Obamacare.

    “It’s seriously bad,” McAfee said. “Somebody made a grave error, not in designing the program but in simply implementing the web aspect of it. I mean, for example, anybody can put up a web page and claim to be a broker for this system. There is no central place where I can go and say, ‘OK, here are all the legitimate brokers, the examiners for all of the states and pick and choose one.’”

    I wouldn't go anywhere near that site, even to check it out.

    You can call yourself whatever you want, when you go running around with the group of them you are a republican. You can think you are the queen of england for all I care, you side with them and i am putting you with them.
    I think you just put everything that is wrong with our political system in one sentence. Us verse them. If the idiots on the hill worked together, we would be much better off.

    The problem with that is that when a liberal progressive says 'we need to work together', what they really mean is 'you need to do everything my way'....

    Obama care is going to need enrollment in the tens of millions by Dec 15 or it will be a bust. more then half of those tens of millions will need to be young and healthy to keep the premiums where they are at, or the price will have to be raised even higher then they already are
    I signed up for my state's exchange, and it looks much better than what I have. It's a bummer I have to wait for it to kick in, because I sure could use it now. The premiums are about the same as I pay now for much better care. There are half a million people in my state alone who are uninsured, and I think the truth is that most of them want health insurance and have never been willing to jump through the hoops to get it. They're lazy and the mandate will help people go out there and get insurance. The end result will be a better system, one in which people start getting preventative care. It's going to make our country better, and for the many posters in this thread who talk about how horrible they think Obama is, making the country better seems like a pretty good use of our money. Bush - used our money to invade two countries. Obama - used our money to set up affordable health insurance for the majority of our citizens.

    I can see why that's so scary to Republicans. No, I'm just kidding, I have no idea why anybody would be terrified of the ACA. We need to reform entitlement programs and get spending down, granted, but Obamacare seems good to me.
