NOBODY knows that, not even you oh omniscient one, but thanks for all of that speculation.

No, nobody "knows" that, but even before this bill was passed, prominent conservatives voiced that very fear and that's what's motivating them now.

And that's why they can piss up a rope when it comes to getting a delay.

Of course...and it such a ROUSING first week of it.

That's false.





Government Shutdown Blame? Poll Fingers Republicans And Democrats
Touchè,

Despite the hyperbole, though, polls still suggest that the majority blame the Republicans. Which is appropriate, considering they ARE the minority nationwide.
Before you start believing the Democrats are safe in this shutdown, you might want to gander at this.

Quote:
Oct 3 - CBS poll


The overwhelming response from all demographics is compromise. Over the whole sample, 76% want Obama and the Democrats to compromise, and 78% want House Republicans to compromise. Sixty-one percent of Democrats want to see compromise from their own side, and 59% of Republicans feel the same way.

CBS notes that their poll in the November 1995 shutdown put blame on Republicans by nearly a 2:1 ratio, 51/28, in relation to Bill Clinton. That’s not a good sign for Democrats, either.

That suggests that the “clean CR or else” and “I won’t negotiate” messaging from Reid and Obama will eventually backfire, especially as House Republicans send individual appropriations with little disagreement to the Senate only to get them rejected out of hand. That Kabuki theater last night at the White House may end up backfiring after raising expectations that Democrats were preparing to negotiate after all.



Speaking of Republicans, I found this article poll to be interesting.

Quote:
USA TODAY poll:
53%disapprove of the health care law, the highest level since it was signed; 42% approve.

41% of those surveyed strongly disapprove while just 26% strongly approve. Fifty-three percent disapprove of Obama's handling of health care policy, an historic high.

Forty-one percent predict in coming years the effect on themselves and their families will be negative; just 25% think it will be positive. Even more, 47%, say the law will have a negative impact on the country as a whole; 35% expect a positive impact.

For the first time in polling that stretches back more than two decades, Americans narrowly prefer Republicans in dealing with health care policy, 40%-39%

USA TODAY/Pew poll: Health care law faces difficult future

Boehner today threatened a default if they don't get the budget cuts they want.

I wonder who will be responsible for a default.

Our President should NEVER negotiate with these domestic terrorists.
Is that why the IRS and other government employees don't want any part of this plan, and are BEGGING Obama for an exemption? Push that propoganda somewhere else, as the reality of all these exemptions don't match your rhetoric.
Is that why the democrats in Congress exempted THEMSELVES when Republicans wanted to extend ACA to Congress?

Anyone against the basic tenants of Obamacare feels strongly and passionately that insurance companies should be able to cancel coverage at anytime, that they should be able to deny insurance to anyone, that they should be able to cap the coverage even after someone has paid thousands for the insurance of a period of years, even decades. They believe that insurance companies should continue as death panels, that sick people should go bankrupt trying to pay their bills, that children born with pre-existing conditions are unworthy of insurance. The believe in a corrupt, morally indefensible system that doesn't actually provide anyone "insurance" that can be counted on.

Until they themselves face being capped, cancelled or denied themselves.

I'm not going to apologize for being in favor of a free market where a privately-held company can make business decisions on their own.

But you have to also be unaplogetic in your support of an over-reaching government (that is, btw, in the pocket of your boogeyman insurance industry) that took it upon their selves to MANDATE life-long customers of the evil insurance companies.

You ignorant fuck.
They never could do that.

that they should be able to deny insurance to anyone
Yes?
So in your opinion they should take a 200 dollar payment to pay out a few hundred thousand?

You are an ignorant fuck.

The GOP knows that if ObamaCare launches and then runs for a whole year, a lot of the kinks will get worked out, and millions and millions and millions and millions of people will grow to like it. A lot.

And then the GOP is fucked on the mid-terms.

So they are doing a Hail Mary pass right now. They are desperate and holding the entire country hostage.


The Democrats sure as shit would not want to shut the government down or delay Obamacare for a year. They know time is on their side.



That is how you know this shutdown is all on the GOP.


The GOP fucked up big time. Healthcare costs have been a problem for the country for a long time. That's why we almost got HillaryCare. That's why even the right wing Heritage foundation investigated the problem and suggested a health insurance mandate as part of the solution.

But what did the GOP do about rising healthcare costs when it controlled all three branches of government? Anyone? Anyone?


NOTHING!!!! That's what.


Then the Democrats get back and power and put a plan on the table. America decided their plan was better than NOTHING.

And that's how we got to where we are.


And so what is the GOP's alternative plan to ObamaCare? What is the GOP finally come up with to reform out of control health care costs?

NOTHING!!!!

Still...NOTHING!!!!


This is beyond amazing.

Even at this too late date, their only alternative plan is NOTHING!!!!.


And that is why they are holding their breath until they turn blue now.



This is just how far my beloved party has fallen.
^ that
Even The T or CrusaderFrank57 can't argue w/ that rock solid reasoning
