Kansas delegation holds position of making government funding contingent on delaying Obamacare

Now there you go again,Armstrong. President's non-negotiating stance is so similar to President Reagan's non-negotiating stance with the Patco union members who struck the air traffic control system. It's all in how you view things, Armstrong.

Why should the President negotiate? Will the next time a continuing resolution comes to the Senate, will the House include de-funding Social Security or other programs? A Republican faction of the House is trying to destroy our government and is gloating over the shut down. No President should negotiate that issue.

The Republican / Fox News / Tea Party disinformation campaign will ultimately discredit their position. Reasonable, rational conservatives who are Republicans need to distance themselves from the craziness is now being disseminating from their propaganda machines.

Speaker of the House John Boehner must become independent of the Tea Party influence to become a leader rather than a figurehead. Let the House vote on a "clean" Continuing Resolution and let the country move on.

Cruz and his cronies refused to have the Senate authorize the appointment of Senators to negotiate a compromise budget. Can't have it both ways, IGWT. Can't refuse to allow the process and then criticize when there isn't a compromise produced by the process you thwarted.

Total garbage, IGWT! House Republicans didn't want to have a conference to work out differences with the Senate budget until yesterday when they show up for a fake meeting. Compromise? Why? Will the next time a continuing resolution comes along will they designate SNAP to defund? EPA? Medicare? Social Security?

I suspect that when the Obama presidency is completed, it will have increased the national debt less than what occurred during the Bush years. And, the US will be out of two wars that Bush didn't want paid by the rich.

Kansas premiums lower than expected under new health insurance marketplaces, report says

So, as the facts come forward, it can be asked why do Republican Tea Party types object to these changes. Is it because they see this as a mandated requirement for ALL Americans? Is it because the costs are so high? Because it's the only thing the Republican Party can generate as an issue? Is it because the advertisement industry needs more opportunities for "disinformation"? (Remember the Death Panels?) Or, because it places some significant limits on the income of the health care insurance industry?

But, then...the Koch Brothers are putting more of their money back into the economy.

I believe that there will be hiccups in the application of Obamacare, but if Republicans can focus on appropriate modifications instead of trying to damn the entire law, the US will benefit.
