    the GOP wants the Democrats to negotiate on the ACA with a gun to their heads.

    no thanks.

    Restart the govt. and then we will talk.

    Why should anyone believe Dems who have refused to talk since 2008?

    A gun the democrats loaded and placed to their heads themselves by design. Help them, before that sumbitch goes off all on its own. We know democrats only have little guns, but still....

    Obama tried to bring the GOP together on the ACA but they refused to talk about it.

    Republicans: 86
    Democrats: 29
    Both: 60
    Neither: 7

    Interesting. So far, 80% hold Republicans responsible, at least in part; compared to 49% who hold Democrats responsible. Seems there's little difference between this forum and the polls monitoring the rest of the nation.

    -----On the Senate side, from June to September, the Senate Finance Committee held a series of 31 meetings to develop of a healthcare reform bill. This group—in particular, Democrats Max Baucus, Jeff Bingaman, and Kent Conrad, and Republicans Mike Enzi, Chuck Grassley, and Olympia Snowe—met for more than 60 hours, and the principles that they discussed, in conjunction with the other committees, became the foundation of the Senate's healthcare reform bill-------

    Plus there was the big get together Obama had with the Republicans to try to come to a deal.

    So yes the Democrats did talk to the Republicans.

    To quote from the longer print version of Krauthammer's column in the WaPo:

    "The Democrats insist they welcomed contributing ideas from the Republicans. Rubbish. Republicans proposed that insurance be purchasable across state lines. They got nothing. They sought serious tort reform. They got nothing. Why? Because, admitted Howard Dean, Democrats didn't want to offend the trial lawyers. . . . Having stuffed Obamacare down the throats of the GOP and the country, Democrats are now paying the price."
