    They are willing to fund it. They asked that the medical device tax be removed. That is pretty reasonable.

    It would also be reasonable to have gun control and a tax increase on the rich.

    Let the negotiations begin!

    Poor conservatives, they have to pretend they're being honest about negotiations.

    Didn't we just do a tax increase on the Rich?

    Don't we have gun control?

    Be honest guy.

    Didn't we pass ACA?

    Keep dancing. I know you want to pretend that negotiations mean the GOP makes demands and the Senate complies. But you're only fooling yourself. But it is fun to watch.

    Darrel Issa's face needs to be kept front and center in the American eye.
    Since the Sports world does things in TOP 25s, I'll move Issa into the Top 25 at 25.
    At this point, he replaces the Vice-President.

    That is reasonable, but I haven't seen where they're willing to fund it with that tax removed. I'd like to see your source on that.

    Can you explain why this "traffic channeling" was suddenly and coincidentally needed at exactly the same time as the shutdown? "Traffic channeling" that had never been necessary prior to this?

    You do know what spin is, don't you? Yes, state officials were told this. It was included in the links I have been referencing from the beginning, and I addressed it directly to a post to another person prior to your bringing it up here. Just because state officials were told this does not make it true. It makes no sense whatsoever. It doesn't add up. It's hollow, plain and simple.

    ETA: I find it ironic that the link you posted actually bolsters my point that much of this stuff is merely petty and vindictive and using the average citizens as pawns. Thank you for providing that.

    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Who said the traffic channeling has never been used before?
    It is not at all unusual to use cones for traffic channeling at State and National Parks.

    If guests stayed within the cones they would have been channeled to the good viewing areas.

    Your cherry picking is commendable - the Obamabots will keep you as a favorite, dear to their hearts - however, you clearly don't understand the total impact of the link you posted. Bottom line, the net cost of the ACA over the period May 2013 through 2023 is $1.363 trillion.

    This is far too embarrassing for you and I'll simply stop proving you wrong over and over again and let you wallow in the ignorance of your posts.
