    You should be able to recite each and every different proposal.
    But for some reason you can't. Must be the partisan politics that you engage in.
    the only thing democrats want is to end the shutdown and raise the debt ceiling. those are not negotiating postiions, those are things that should not be used as leverage to extract concessions. the democrats want to there to be negotiations without the threats of government shutdown or default on debt ceiling.

    And they can have those things when they start negotiating.

    That is what they say. But we know they are not to be believed.

    They should. Let's negotiate a tax hike on the rich, cuts to the military, gun control, maybe a jobs bill -- all the things we couldn't get due to GOP obstructionism.

    Be careful what you ask for!

    Why do you keep spewing the same bs?
    The rich already pay more than there fair share and the Military and Guns are Constitutional requirements, ACA is not.

    The Supreme Court decided the ACA is Constitutional.

    See, you just want to make demands. That's not a negotiation. But you knew that and you know that the GOP's rhetoric about negotiating is pretense. And now you've proved it.

    Did I say it wasn't found to be Constitutional?
    Or did I say the others were Constitutional requirements, which the ACA is not?

    Pay attention.

    There you go with the bs again.

    The Republicans submitted amendments and making compromises to their original position.
    It is the Dems who are not negotiating, and they even said they wouldn't. That is the Dems making demands and not compromising.
    Duh!


    It is so easy to discredit your idiotic memes.

    Why should the Dems "negotiate"?

    The ACA has been upheld by the Supreme Court and the American people voted in Obama even though his opponent ran a campaign that largely consisted of repealing the ACA. Furthermore the people voted in a Democratic Senate.

    Because then we would have to put more people on the payroll to police everyone going to the national monuments.
