    “It’s exactly what we wanted, and we got it.” — Rep. Michelle Bachmann on the shutdown.

    How many Republican/TSE Party legislators ran on a platform of shutting down the government?

    When we default on our debt, he’ll be celebrating like it’s a Superbowl win… at least until he sees how that affects the deficit.

    I just love Reid’s comment to CNN reporter Dana Bash on the NIH and children’s cancer:

    Bash: “But if you can help one child who has cancer, why wouldn’t you do it?”
    .
    .
    REID: “Why would we want to do that?”

    Reid controls the Senate. Bachmann is nothing but a vote… one among 432. But, math has never been a strong suit of the Progressive Left.

    In another one of my classroom discussions over the current situation in Washington, healthcare, the lack of credibility of our politicians (at all levels), many interesting points were made.
    My favorite “the republicans shoot themselves in the foot every time because they haven’t offered intelligent alternatives to the democrats healthcare package. They just want to maintain the status-quo.” Bingo!
    John Boehner, listen to the next generation that will soon be running things…

    You certainly had him there HA HA. On the other hand when your people are asked to stop shooting innocent children by enacting sensible gun laws. HA Ha

    O and the Dems want a dictatorship that involves no negotiations.
    Maybe they need to read the Constitution.

    That old thing again? They have but simply put the media won’t report on it because it doesn’t fit the narrative that the Republicans are evil.
    .
    Here’s one from 2009: http://www.speaker.gov/sites/speaker.house.gov/files/UploadedFiles/Summary_of_Republican_Alternative_Health_Care_plan.pdf
    .
    Here’s one from this year: dailycaller.com/2013/09/18/revealed-the-gops-new-plan-to-repeal-replace-obamacare/
    .
    I’m not saying its better. Simply that we can never argue the merits of the Republican bill if we never know of its existence.

    ^ If Republicans were serious about improving out health care system, which they’re not, they would allow Obamacare to take effect and they propose their ‘plan’ to supplant parts of the ACA.
    -
    It’s your belief that Republicans want to improve our health care system?

  11. Barc O'Dez

    Barc O'Dez said, 11 months ago

    It’s easy to suggest “Just let it take effect, then fix what’s wrong with it.” I’m not 100% opposed to that idea. But the status quo for Washington is once it’s established, it becomes the new norm and every change is an up-hill battle. Why do you think Pelosi wanted to pass it so we could discover what was in it? If Dems were serious about their actual jobs of reporting to their constituents, they never would’ve let that fly.
    .
    That being said, all I was saying was that Republicans have put forth proposal after proposal from before Obamacare was enacted up to last month. It’s just never reported. I blame the GOP for poor marketing as much as the media, for whom Dems don’t need to market as they break wind and it’s newsworthy.
    .
    In the end it’s about perspective. Liberals point to Obamacare and say it’s about healthcare – which it is. But conservatives aren’t against the health care part of it, in fact we love the theories and the table discussions. Despite the rhetoric, we’d love for everyone to get healthcare through traditional means. But we all understand something liberals don’t or refuse to acknowledge: Obamacare means a loss of more freedoms, more distribution of wealth, and more taxes put upon individuals and businesses, big and small, in order to cover those who cannot afford it.

    @r2varney

    Nice logical fallacy there r2varney. Your red herring uses an appeal to consequences making it an irrelevancy.
    .
    Reid on the other hand, like many other Progressives in the Democrat party have made a large number of very poor public statements on the government shutdown.
    .
    I blame both sides in this but assign it about 60 – 40 Democrat and Republican respectively in culpability.

    Jimmy Kimmel went out and asked people which they liked better, the ACA or Obamaccare. Most people said the ACA.
    Ed Schultz went out and asked the same question, and most people knew the ACA and Obamacare are the same thing.

    -
    You may have forgotten the hundreds of Republican filibusters, including one of their own proposals after Obama said he supported it.

    ^
    For Republicans, it’s not about health care at all. It’s about hatred for Obama.
