    Might not the truck be labeled “Mission Accomplished……”

    Let’s just up our military spending again, so much simpler.

    At some point the can is going to be bigger than the truck then what? This can not keep going on forever. At some point those we are borrowing all this money from are going want it back. We came to this country and kicked the natives off their land. Does the same fate await us?

    I can’t speak for other states but here in Colorado the rates are pretty insane. The Gov. site immediately directed me to the local states ones. In my neck of the woods (western Colorado) its $933 a month for a single male with $2000 deductible with copays who does not smoke and is 59 years old. My last premium before I went on Medicare (yes I am old) was almost $900 a month.

    Someone needs to explain to me how this is affordable healthcare.

    If that’s the case then how come the Denver Post says its much cheaper than that? You sure you’re putting the right information?

    If the truck had a “How’s my driving” phone number, there would be no one in congress to answer the phone. It is congress that was supposed to build and design an affordable healthcare plan that would lower the rapidly increasing costs while protecting citizens. Mr. Obama has shown some poor driving techniques and his ACA needs a LOT of work, but taking that truck off of the road prevents it from delivering product to millions in need. It’s time for the congress to recognize the NEED for an ACA that works and make it do so. If it is defunded/dismantled/killed, I have seen NO evidence in the last thirty years that Republicans would create something to replace it, at least, not for poor people.
    And to the person above who complained about the failed roll out costing 400 million dollars, the shutdown cost the gov’t alone 60 times that at 24 billion. That does not include costs to businesses who depended on workers to show up and use paper, ink, and need to buy food and drinks.
    Both parties are wasting too much money. Accusing the other side does no good unless you are also taking YOUR side to task as well. In a two party system, it takes both parties working under the instructions of their constituents to make changes.
    Respectfully,

    Ramirez suggests Obama (and the RINOs?) kicked the can down the road. The Congress agreed, Democrats and Republicans, House and Senate.


    The US has the world’s Key Currency. Between WWII and Reagan, that fact meant the US didn’t have to worry about foreign debt. Reagan convinced Congress to pass a debt ceiling bill, but then had it raised (without any objections) several times.


    The US has laws that say what it is legally obligated to spend, and what it is legally allowed to tax. This has meant a deficit most years. The debt ceiling makes it illegal to run a deficit after the ceiling has been hit, which is a contradiction. It’s like saying the law is that 3.8 must be less than 2.9, and if it isn’t, the US is in violation of the law. Everyone says that really hitting the ceiling will be an utter disaster. NO ONE has ever seriously threatened to let the US hit the debt ceiling. Senator Obama voted against raising the debt ceiling, but only because he knew he would lose. Boehner said he would not pass a clean CR, but he would NEVER let the US hit the debt ceiling (of course, in the end he also had to pass the clean CR).


    I’ve been criticised for agreeing with Fox that the failure to pass the CR was NOT a shutdown, since most of the government continued working, and accept the Fox term ‘slimdown’. A small percentage of Americans were seriously hurt, but the majority of Americans were not seriously affected, so I prefer ‘slimdown’ to the term ‘shutdown’, which is technically correct but more misleading than ‘slimdown’.

    - The funny thing: Obamacare will actually cut the debt by about $1 trillion over the next ten years.

    You don’t belong here!! You’re too fact oriented and thoughtful for most of these hateful clowns! :) :)

    Conservatives always warn us about everything because they’re basically afraid of everything. What’s it like to live that way?

    @Michael wme

    I can live with your explanation. Very well thought out and well stated. And you didn’t resort to calling President Obama a terrorist or a Kenyan. There’s not much about fox “news” I can get behind, but I think we can have intelligent discourse.
