    I think the ACA would harm our country more than the government being shut down for a few days.

    I'd like to know where that provision went that the Republicans had put in place in case of a shutdown that guaranteed the military would still get paid! My son is one that lives from payday to payday, has a wife, 3 kids and house payments. He's leaving for Afghanistan very soon for 6 months, leaving his wife to take care of everything at home. It pissed me right off when I heard Obama say in his speech that our military will still be doing their jobs, but without pay. Why??? I guess Obama thinks they're "non-essential".

    the brain washing only gets worse

    check out this school video

    “pledge to be a servant to the president.”

    “I pledge to be of service to Barack Obama"

    Many of you know that I have not been a fan of ACA since day one.

    Nevertheless what the GOP has been doing for the last year or so is ridicuous.

    And now the government shuts down b ecause they don't get their way?

    The GOP needs a seriously smackdown.

    Truly it does,

    To editec: Once again you want to eat your cake and have it, too. Either you want the ACA defunded or you don’t. You cannot have it both ways. Blaming conservative Republicans for a government shutdown is a sneaky way of saying you want it implemented “But don’t call me a liberal.”

    The following cartoon taken from the linked article was made for liberals trying to defend the ACA by blaming Republicans for the government shutdown:

    Obama is just as much at fault for the shut down as the Republicans. Remember, he said he would not negotiate. He was getting everything he needed to keep the government running, the ONLY thing he wasn't getting was his funding for healthcare. So he let the govt shut down over his this one thing. Of course if he'd given in he would have then admitted he's a failure. We all know THAT will never happen!

    Assuming the following is true anybody who thinks Wall Street & the insurance industry are not behind the ACA needs to have their heads examined.
