    Re: Boehner: Obama should negotiate on debt, but not with me

    I don't think anyone knows wtf the House is doing.
    It looks like they have a defacto Speaker in Cruz.
    You guys keep taking away billions on food stamps.

    What do you think of my mid-term convention in St. Louis?
    We could then transition right to a Constitutional convention for all citizens, not pols.

    and Walgreen's business decision makes the argument for defunding the Affordable care act how?

    just a question: how many people will suffer when the affordable care act is defunded?

    for example, the current proposal to defund obama care would also defund the CHIP Program.

    A House Republican proposal to defund the Affordable Care Act would also devastate a program that insured over 8 million moderate-income children this year, Democrats said on Thursday.

    Under the government funding bill proposed by the House -- which includes Rep. Steve Scalise's (R-La.) amendment defunding Obamacare -- the Children's Health Insurance Program would lose about $13.3 billion dollars, or 70 percent of its funding, on October 1. CHIP provides health insurance coverage to children whose families earn too much to qualify for Medicaid, but still cannot afford private coverage. The program was set to expire at the end of this month, but the Affordable Care Act reauthorized and funded it through 2015.

    Only the Congress or States can call for a convention for the purpose of amending the Constitution...

    you don't get it:

    CHIP provides health insurance coverage to children whose families earn too much to qualify for Medicaid, but still cannot afford private coverage.
    CHIP is for people who earn too much to qualify for medicaid but still cannot afford private coverage

    You're not foolishly trying to suggest that only Republicans have favorite "corporate types", are you?

    You chose an add-on to respond to, don't blame you.
    Dangerous times demand something totally new with a CC.
    Now your team has started a statement on who is shutting the "whole damn thing down".
    What is next to defund after food stamps? Social Security, etc
