    Re: John Boehner: Obama owns this shutdown now

    The simple fact is Obama and the Democrats vowed to shut down the entire government if the House won't fund Obamacare.

    THUS, the TRUTH is that Republicans have shut down Obamacare and Obama and Democrats have shut down everything else. Yet not one media source is reporting that obvious truth.

    Okay, let's discuss substance instead of ideology. If individuals need subsidies to purchase mandated government insurance, how will he/she ever be able to afford the co-pays much less the deductibles?
    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...

    Yep, it works wonders to get rid of all the ideological whine over a law that was passed 3 years ago.

    Very good point, AP!

    I guess the conjecture that Single Payer has always been the ultimate goal may be accurate. IOW, make it so difficult that people will demand change, which will be "reluctantly" granted with much fanfare, and a speech by BHO, "for the good of the country." There will be dancing in the streets by those who believe that they had just won something!

    Focus, focus. Take your mind off your irrational hatred of the black president and focus.

    Actually, you have that backwards. The Senate is refusing to conference with the House.

    He's not playing it for the masses. He's playing it for the party.

    Boehner knows the only people going to buy his line are those already drinking the kool-aid. Boehner's #1 goal right now is to prevent an open civil war within the GOP's ranks. Hence why he won't bring the Senate bill to the floor despite having enough moderates and Democrats to vote for it. He lets that pass, he potentially gives the House to the Dems in 2014. It's kind of like you know any move you make will bring your defeat, so you simply refuse to do anything.

    Well, you have a law that just is no good, it doesn't matter how long it takes to get rid of it.

    Look at slavery...
