How 'bout no?

I love how at this point, the GOP base has been fighting Obamacare for so long (it's been 4 years!) that their opposition is so total and all-consuming as to be completely independent of any policy content. It's hilarious.

Is "No" workin' for ya?  'Cause the answer is "No."

Let this one go.  You lost.  That horse doesn't need more beating, it's dead.

Let me guess, and then next year when the debt ceiling needs to be raised again...

Short answer: no

Long answer: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Yep, keep it up right until 2017 and then Hillary can re-write and pass Hillary care which will be soundly defeated.

Oh, FFS. If Obamacare was that bad, they could allow it through and then let it fail on its own.

Problem is, they know it'll work and they know people will like it, so they have to kill it in the crib. That way they can continue to say 'gummint is broken, let's defund everything'.

Nice.

Maybe people will stop voting for these assholes soon. They've been given plenty of good reasons to.

How about you all resign en-mass effective immediately and we promise to delay Obamacare's implementation until the next Presidential election is finished.

I know I'm a broken record about this, but:

Until Republicans admit to their role in creating Obamacare, they can shut the fark up about it.
 
2013-09-10 05:20:31 PM  
The GOP's grand plan is... to keep working stiffs like me paying the hospital bills for idiots who won't take personal responsibility for another year? Thanks, guys, but I'm really quite busy just trying to keep my own family afloat - didn't really need to pick up the tab for the next three dimwits who walk into the ER with gunshots, alcohol poisoning, and head injuries because seatbelts are communist.

At what point did it become Marxist to tell people to PAY THEIR OWN GODDAM BILLS?

Exactly!

There is not person in this country that thinks the Republicans are for Obamacare. We all know they hate it and they have told us it will fail.

So, they believe that it will fail, then why not step back and let it fail? You know, be there to say the "I told you so" and crush the Democrats for a few cycles on the national stage.

If it was gonna be so bad, it would be the road to victory for the GOP without that nasty minority outreach stuff.

You would think being a Congressman would require one to understand that the debt ceiling has more to do with paying for things you have already bought and owned for years, and nothing about stopping the current government from making more purchases.

I really don't want to believe that I am more intelligent than the people running the country. I REALLY, REALLY want to believe this,
 
2013-09-10 05:27:42 PM  
A Cantor aide, when reached by The Huffington Post, suggested that other changes to Obamacare could be on the negotiating table when it came to the debt ceiling.

You probably wanted to suggest some of that when the thing was being written.
 
2013-09-10 05:28:14 PM  
No problem but it will need to be two separate bills. Pass the debt ceiling and then we pinky swear we'll delay Obamacare.

Except you are. How would you like the next 12 drinks you will obviously imbibe now?

I'm sure they'll delay it with 20 days left until the exchanges start enrolling people.

October 1st is going to be.... interesting.

I'm still unsure if I could sign up for something supplemental to my current really crappy insurance.  My employer requires me to participate in the group plan the offer, otherwise I'd probably take my chances with the exchange.

Think of how stupid the average American is. Got it? Okay. Half of all Americans are stupider than the person you just thought of.

As a Canadian, I'm constantly in awe of how the US system of funding healthcare is so profoundly farked up.

Sarin gas attacks? Obamacare

Asteroid threatening to wipe out civilization? Obamacare.

I'm thinking about it, too. I know employers have to let employees know in writing by Oct. 1st if they're dropping coverage. I don't know if employees have to do the same or what.

Glad to see you want to keep the 'free rider' issue that will be dealt with under the ACA.  Why are you so against people having health care coverage and instead push all their bills off on those who do?  And you call yourself a 'fiscal conservative'.  Pfeh.
