    “The TEA Party has passed a budget that doesn’t fund ACA. What part of that don’t libs understand?”The House Tea Party caucus can’t repeal the law, so they’re refusing to fund it. The Senate is refusing to pass a spending bill unless it includes funding for the law, which was passed by both chambers of Congress, signed by the President, and declared constitutional by the Supreme Court. I think us “libs” are up to speed on the situation.

    What the hell is wrong with the Teabaggers ? The ACA aka Obamacare is established law upheld by the Supreme Court. I’m sure there are a lot of laws on the books people don’t like but you can’t be shutting down the Government just because you don’t like a certain law. The Democrats can’t give in to threats every time the Teabaggers throw a hissy fit. There are a lot of Republicans ready to end the shutdown but Speaker Boehner refuses to allow a vote. 1 way or another his speakership in the House is through.

    You’re right Mr. Carlsen,Most Americans don’t like Obamacare, but when you ask them about the ACA, you get a different result. One quick, and perhaps facetious example is this link.^http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/jimmy-kimmel-proves-americans-don-understand-difference-obamacare-affordable-care-act-article-1.1474442^I would be grateful to see actual numbers that reflect what people think about the ACA rather than Obamacare. I have not found a link where the ACA was not referred to as Obamacare in the questioning.As far as technical difficulties go..The Veterans Admin. is unable to give Vets their benefits, sometimes for over a year, because the bureaucratic “geniuses” who designed the system used computers that won’t talk to each other.Wouldn’t it have been great if the parties had worked all of these details out in the committees responsible and delegated the jobs to competent minds they wanted to see succeed?Both parties are sabotaging the other, and the American people, in an effort to become a dominant political power, and neither can be trusted with that much power.Respectfully,C.

    Try again. Most Americans like the provisions of Obamacare:Tax credits for small businesses to buy insurance: 88% in favor.Closing the Medicare drug benefit doughnut hole: 81% in favor.Extension of dependent coverage to offspring up to age 26: 76% in favor.Expanding Medicaid: 71% in favor.Ban on exclusions for preexisting conditions: 66% in favor.Employer mandate: 57% in favor. http://www.latimes.com/business/hiltzik/la-fi-mh-obamacare-20131001,0,4909537.storyAnd by the way, it is NOT socialist by any rational standard; it was developed by the conservative Heritage Foundation Foundation, and when implemented by Republican Governor Romney in Massachusetts. it was praised by the GOP specifically because it required an individual mandate (thus forcing people to “take responsibility”) and it worked through the existing insurance companies.Socialized medicine is properly defined as the government controlling all aspects of medicine: educating doctors, owning and administering the hospitals, buying and managing medicine. We do NONE of those things. By contrast, the UK does have socialized medicine. It is considerably cheaper per person, covers everyone (as we don’t even with Obamacare), and provides better healthcare than the patchwork we laughably call a healthcare system.

    The Supreme Court also thinks that corporations are people. Just proves that they don’t have to be right to keep their jobs.

    The 18th Amendment Was repealed by the full ratification of the 21st Amendment in December, 1933…Not by the hostile obstinacy of a MINORITY of reactionaries in the HoR.
