The Republicans have backed off from their original demand to defund Obamacare,
and instead are offering a reasonable compromise to Democrats which entails
removing just 1 of the many new taxes it adds and also to delay implementation
to the general public for just one year, while the parts of it that are
currently costing thousands of jobs get modified to something better. After all,
Obama has already given similar exemptions to the unions and other special
interest groups who supported him. The American people deserve that same kind
of consideration. Since it's now the Democrats who are refusing
to compromise whatsoever, even in the face of the majority of Americans
currently opposed to Obamacare, it obviously should be the Democrats who will
(or at least should be) stuck with the blame for shutting down the government
... if it actually comes to that. BTW: The Congressional Budget
Office just released figures showing that the cost of Obamacare to taxpayers is
actually going to be twice as much as the numbers Obama used in trying to sell
it to Congress and the American public. The train-wreck is being exposed for
what it is.
@tators how is trying to piggy back legislation they cannot pass a clean
bill on a compromise? if their proposals are as good and as popular as they
think then they should be able to stand on their own instead of attaching it to
must pass legislation.
Who's voice are they listening to?The Prophets?orThe Profits?
@TatorsIf Democrats demanded an extra 100 billion in stimulus money for
infrastructure while Republicans get nothing, then Democrats say "okay, 50
billion, see we're compromising" you wouldn't consider that a
compromise since Democrats aren't giving up anything relative to the
What part 17 trillion dollar debt do you people not understand?
@mg scottwhat part of defaulting on those loans are not getting?
What part of borrowing money to pay back borrowed money do you not get. How
long before the credit card limit runs out?
Re: Tators "which entails removing just 1 of the many new taxes it adds

insurance delay is denial. How dare you deny care to people who lack it and
desperately need it.
I am concerned about why the Congress are not forgoing their salaries because
they are failing at their job? Why are we paying them exorbitant salaries for
life when they are not doing the job they were elected to do.
