    Yes it does. They were too lazy to support a filibuster and they are idiots for not taking a stand on the issue. If they don't believe it was worth taking a stand, then their criticisms of Obamacare were hollow and insincere.

    And that's why the government is shut down. The democrats think it's worth holding everything else in the budget hostage to their pet health care project.

    Boehner submitted a clean spending bill yet?

    Where would we be if we let 18% of the nation decide which laws to like? Does that sound fair to you?
    Short answer, the USA, but that would open a rather large can of worms with this administration, wouldn't it?

    What was it for you?
    So 100% of the voters vote on issues and not if they didn't like Romney or they did like Obama.

    I would say most of the voters had no idea what was in Obamacare in 2012 so the election couldn't have been about that.

    You must have been one of those voters that weren't paying attention.

    Here's Romney's campaign ad....

    "Day One, Job One, Repeal Obamcare".....

    Day One, Job One: #FullRepeal - YouTube


    America made its choice and voted for Obama.

    Heh, that doesn't imply they voted for Obama because of that. C'mon, he'd already pissed off enough of his base so they had to hold their noses in order to vote for him again, or have you forgotten that? Could easily have said they voted Obama for re-election despite Obamacare.

    It proves that Romney's number one campaign promise was to repeal Obamacare and he didn't get enough votes. Just like the GOP didn't get enough votes to repeal it in congress.
