    If I had a Business Partner who wasted money, who threw it out the window to the tune of 100’s of millions in a few days while arguing incessantly for a reduction of expenditures, while he claimed to be DEATHLY worried about ‘over spending,’ I couldn’t take him seriously. But that’s what Ramirez and his extremist RePuliCons are asking me to do. Sorry. Making Obama out to be a terrorist, a hostage taker, a blower of smoke and a threat to the structure of the Republic is crap. We sent Representatives to Congress to vote. All Boehner’s got to do is get out of the prevaricating way, and let our Constitutionally elected Reps vote. If the majority votes to continue the shut down, hey, let me know. We’ll have something more talk about.

    I see more and more the term “ACA” is being used instead of “Obamacare.” I guess people reacted positively to "Affordable Care Act, " having been conditioned to react negatively to “Obamacare.” So to get the desired response, some are calling it “ACA,” which sounds somewhat insidious. O tempora! O mores!

    Looks like the cartoon Nick Andersen did only the opposite. It’s sort of like the joke about two guys claiming to be Jesus… You know one of them HAS to be lying…
    Given Obama’s track record I pick him. Ramirez is right.

    Finally, somebody in the press tells it like it is.

    Obama refuses to even sit down to negotiate but the American people who are dependent on the dole out from the government don’t want to hear that they are going to have to become responsible for themselves so instead they buy into the ideal that only Republicans are being unreasonable.

    You said Boehner reneged but you don’t say why he reneged. That is your monkey wrench.

    Dem’s requested 18 meeting in previous 6 months, Cruz killed all. Debt, House makes all Tax & Spending bills, Pres. has none, did any of you finish High School & learn about Civic’s? Texan’s exempted.

    Just who exactly keeps saying “There’s nothing to negotiate on…”?
    I listen to Reid and Obama and all I hear is “Give me a trillion dollars and a helicopter or the economy gets it!” The two sound like a bank robber hostage situation where they are the hostage takers.

    ACA creates a disaster unfolding in the both the economy of this country (1/6 is healthcare) and the healthcare industry. Boehner is trying to save our future (from a European style one-payer healthcare) and our children’s future economy. It is called liberty in the constitution. It is what our forefathers fought for, some died for, and we have been given by our constitution and God-given rights… LIBERTY!

    “I guess people reacted positively to "Affordable Care Act, " having been conditioned to react negatively to “Obamacare.” "

    Absolutely correct. When people are asked in polls about their viewpoints on ACA, the numbers are statistically more positive than when those same people are asked about Obamacare. Your choice of words is excellent: people have been conditioned to be negative towards Obamacare. For some reason, many who oppose Obamacare are unwilling to restrict their opposition to the true flaws of Obamacare, and are willing to intentionally misinform the public about issues that have nothing to do with ACA (death panels and doctors being required to ask how many guns you have are good examples).

    But it’s all about semantics. People who are against abortion call themselves “pro-life”. Their opponents call them “anti-choice”. People who believe abortion should be legal call themselves “pro-choice”, but are called “murderers” by their opponents. They may represent the same things, but often the phrasing is more important than the idea behind it, at least in politics.

    And yet Obamacare, judged by SCOTUS to be legal only because it is a tax, originated in the Senate.

    Oops! Looks like the Koch Brothers are abandoning the Tea Party government shutdown strategy and pulling funding. In addition, Chamber of Commerce now actually donating to Republican opponents of shutdown.

    House extremists (and their cheerleaders commenting here) can go back to whining about Benghazi now.

    Money is the only thing that talks to libs.

    Amazingly, money does not seem to be talking to many of the Tea Party members of Congress. Their campaigns were financed by the Koch Brothers & the US Chamber of Commerce. Now that the Tea Party crew has decided that the nation must be sacrificed in order to save our country (what?), their donors are deserting them.

    The ACA is law. A fully funded law, in fact. The only reason to delay & defund the ACA is to guarantee that it will fail. Rather than have the courage of their convictions & let the ACA move forward to fail or succeed by its own merits, the Tea Party has taken the full faith & credit of the United States of America hostage.

    The Kochs are not amused. They rely on a functioning government more than anyone.
