    “Killing” the government (shutdown) isn’t the problem. The GOP can do that as long as they want, they will only hurt themselves, ask Newt Gingrich. The real threat from the “American Taleban” is the attempt to not raise the debt limit if they don’t get their way.

    I live an ocean away from Washington D.C., but if these wackos succeed i will be impacted by the world-wide financial crisis that follows such a failed vote! And, no, the President is NOT going to negotiate, and any attempt to blame him for the imminent collapse of society after the failed vote will fail. But by then it will be all over anyway. Last ditch effort: the $1T Platinum coin, again, to be minted in the dead of night before the banks open the next morning, if it is to be of any use. The times we live in…

    “And, no, the President is NOT going to negotiate,….”

    He reiterated that in a speech today. In a democracy that is beyond arrogance. It is self righteous and smacks of an innate inability or a refusal to lead. It is unfortunate and sad that there is no one in either the House or Senate to take up the slack in a leadership role. Washington, D.C. (using a trite expression) is a ship with no rudder.

    Lewis Carroll of course was referencing the mercury contaminated insanity of the “hatters” of his day. Interesting the “TEA party” folks are convinced by their “handlers” that “clean coal”, a major source of mercury contamination, stilll, is “good for them”. Toon only portrays just one component of how nuts these radical folks are. (YEs, when it first started, the TEA party did have some moderately sane folks and rationales, but both are pretty much gone.)

    Wait a second here! The ACA already passed! Why should he continue to negotiate when ALL the Republicans have wanted, from day one, is to kill the ACA, and any other Obama legislation. The clear problem is bitterness and spite which has poisoned the House Republicans! 42 votes to repeal! What a load! Rant over.

    My comment was in reference to today’s Presidential speech and MontyForTyrant’s post of “And, no, the President is NOT going to negotiate,….”. It was not specific to the PPACA.

    what about his government, our government?
    since the tea party hates the government why don’t they just leave? (I know so many people who can’t afford health insurance, and this should make it affordable. Except for where the GOP throws monkey wrenches in the works.

    Don’t repeal Obamacare and you’ll kill the nation. Obamacare is and has been shown a disaster. The number of companies dropping coverage, rolling back coverage, reducing employee hours, and scrambling to avoid the worst of Obamacare is astounding.
    UPS dumped coverage for employee families
    Catepillar rolled back their plans to comply giving their employees a worse plan.
    Colleges and universities are cutting non-tenured staff hours to under 30 a week to make them part time and avoid having to give them coverage.
    That is just the tip of a huge iceburg coming.

    Aside from that since Obamacare passed the number of people uninsured has doubled. The cost of health insurance likewise has gone up nearly 50%. It is just a total disaster.

    Yet, we hear the Democrats hell bent on continuing on course to implement this trainwreck simply because they think that no matter how bad it is now somehow it will get better if they keep doing the same thing harder.

    Employer’s need to have the burden of directly providing healthcare benefits to their employees removed. Rates have soared over the last several years it’s past time to use a new approach.

    keep drinking the koolaid. everyone has bought in that we need the government in its present form and size even while it is bankrupting us all. a shutdown is not a bad idea (see sequester which was much ado about nothing). it swould show that life goes on without the gov’ts hand in our pocket and no pol wants that

    Strange… that’s how I felt when Congress passed a resolution allowing Bush to invade Iraq. I was told to, “get over it.”
