This is just so typical of Congressional Republicans. First they claim that Obamacare will never work. Then they do everything they can to make sure it will never work.

This is a great move, to ensure that our tax dollars are not wasted by giving them to people who ARE NOT ELIGIBLE for them.

How that is anything but legal, moral, ethical and non-partisan is impossible to see.

Still, I guess there are some who are convinced that everyone has an entitlement to unlimited "free stuff" and any attempt to follow the rules is automatically racist or something.

"Delay, de-fund, repeal, replace. That is exactly what we want to do, because this law has become so amazingly unpopular with the American people," said Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn.

I sure hope they're able to do it. And, the sooner the better.

I for the life of me can not figure out how any republican can with a straight face can declare the Affordable Healthcare Act a failed on it merits when it has never been funded to see if it works. the blame at this point lies solely at the feet of those that have declared "Defund" over and over again.

Clearly the Republicans will not hesitate to throw the middle class under the bus to get what they want.

Obama, Congress, White House staff, big business, etc, are all exempt from this health care bill. Why! That's a good indicator that it's flawed.

This health care bill has never been fully explained to the people, and has more writings in it than the Bible.

We were told to pass it first, than find out later what's in it.

Very unprofessional.

Remember when Obama promised us, “If you like your current health care plan, you can keep your plan?” That was not true, and his deceptive claim falls in line with all the other lies about Obama Care – like there’d be no health care rationing.

Anyone with an ounce of common sense can understand that if it is cheaper for a company to cancel employees’ health benefits and pay the $2,000 Obama Care fine instead of providing, say, a $10,000 government mandated employee health care plan, then of course that company will choose to pay the much smaller fine.

And if companies don’t have to provide government mandated health care for part time employees, then of course that’s an incentive for them to cut back employees’ hours and make their workforce part time.

This isn’t rocket science. This is Economics 101. And it’s happening right now at companies all over the country.

Spring Street: when was the last time you stuck your finger in a light socket to see if it works? Maybe if you stuck two fingers in it would work better. Just how many fingers does it take to get a light socket to not shock you? And how many regulations does it take to reduce the cost of health care? The answer is the same: none, because fingers don't belong in light sockets and the government doesn't belong in economic markets. The results are the same.

How many millions are spent each week to purchase the services of republican Members of the House?

The more obfuscation and delay of the ACA, the longer the rich healthcare interests keep making huge fortunes of profit, subsidized by the American public
