How exactly are we supposed to determine who has insurance and who doesn't when providing emergency care? That's why we require hospitals and EMTs to treat all patients first, and then worry about getting paid second.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
The Republicans never did that. Furthermore, whenever the Democrats have tried to build credit with Republicans it has been thrown in their face.
There is no imperative for the Democrats to give in on Obamacare.Both.Both sides have their prized pig that they do not want to let go of.Democrats do not want to budge an inch on Obama-care and republicans do not want to give an inch on trying to defend Obama-care.

If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
The democrats should not compromise. No one should be able to use sabotage of the functioning of government as a lever for any reason. The only way to stop the tactic is to refuse to let it pay off.
Using such sabotage as a lever is a framework for governance that will simply not work. What if both sides used it as a lever whenever they disagreed? Absolutely ridiculous to blame both sides every time one side decides to use it.

You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

I believe in universal responsibility. Everyone is responsible for every harm that happens to society if they do not solve the problems of society before something bad happens. So everyone is responsible for the shutdown. That means mostly the american people but also for foreigners who did not try to offer solutions. I am at fault for not having come up with a solution that works, but at least I have tried to offer solutions. We should let the house republican representatives' districts to opt out of the law and not have to pay for it or benefit or be harmed by it. We need a solution everyone likes. This would satisfy the republicans and the democrats. Does anyone else want to avoid blame and offer a solution? What do you guys have to say about my solution or other solutions? We need to solve this because we are responsible for this country, some more than others but everyone has the ability to affect change if they choose to so are responsible for whatever society does. We can control and do anything we want to if we dedicate our selves to doing it so we need to dedicate ourselves to solutions. Right?
