    I don't worry about other poster's actions, but you are misleading when you post 25 Repub Senators were in favor of a clean CR. Just face facts...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    The people don't want to be forced to buy health insurance either.

    FYI, democrats shut down the government 8 times during the Reagan administration. It's how our government is supposed to work.

    Well, if you call twenty years of proposals, bills, debating, amendments, negotiations and a SCOTUS ruling.."ramming down your throat"...then I suppose it was. lol So yeah, let the Dems suffer good healthcare....that'll teach em.

    Btw, my insurance is still the same.

    Yes. And it's ok for the democrats to do it now. Just know that it takes two uncompromising parties to have a stalemate in any negotiation.

    I don't know. Maybe they thought they'd be negotiating and making compromises with the repubs in the house-senate conference committee. But apparently, Boehner had other ideas.

    There were no dire consequences to refusing to conference then, there are now. Its how divided government works, negotiations occur when stakes are high. Not sure why so many don't get this concept.

    Because asking for the undermining of the affordable care act is the same demand as the last forty attempts to undermine it. Obamacare is too high a price.
