Shut it down.
 
2013-09-28 12:41:49 PM  
With a government shutdown less than three days away, the House is charging toward delaying Obamacare for one year and repealing the medical device tax in exchange for funding the government, several sources tell POLITICO.

I'd like to make a counter proposal:
1) You get nothing.
2) The government shuts down for a few weeks.
3) Voters finally start paying attention when the shutdown begins to affect them personally.
4) YOU get blamed and voted out.

No. Just no. The exchanges are set to open in 3 days. Those of us who have been waiting to buy insurance do not want a year delay.

That sounds nice but you are dealing with deranged people who will probably see obama's insistence on shutting down the government as grounds for impeachment or an act of war.

If they were reasonable, we wouldn't be where we are now.

Exchanges open on October 1. Does this mean that insurance will be available through exchanges to be effective on that date, or would this merely allow arrangement for purchase of insurance, to take effect at some later date?

John Boehner waited.  The lights above him blinked and sparked out of the air.  There were teamons in the base.  He didn't see them, but had expected them now for years.  His warnings to Cernel Kochson were not listenend to and now it was too late.  Far too late for now, anyway.

John was a congressman for twenty-three years.  When he was young he watched the congress and he said to dad "I want to be on the floor daddy."  Dad said "No!  You will BE KILL BY TEAMONS"

Then as he got oldered he stopped.  But now in the Congress base of the GOP he knew there were teamons.

"This is Kochson" the radio crackered.  "You must fight the teamons!"

So John gotted his spray tan and blew up the wall.

"HE GOING TO KILL US" said the teamons

"I will primary him" said the cyberteamon and he fired the attack ads.  John sprayed at him and tried to blew him up.  But then the debt ceiling fell and they were trapped and not able to kill.

"No! I must kill the teamons" he shouted

The radio said "No, John.  You are the teamons"

And then John was a Romney.

seriously, the ACA has been law for 2-3 years now and you still dont know these things?
either you have insurance already and the ACA wont have any impact on you, or you dont have insurance and you are just now looking to see how the law affects you?

/I guess you could have insurance and rather than use google to find the details are just trolling in fark. which would probably make the most sense.

Republicans then, are advocating measures that would cause individuals who have signed up for insurance to not receive it. I am interested in hearing their justification.

I am insured through my employer, thus I need not obtain insurance through exchanges. I am wondering how substantially the Republican measure would impact individuals who seek insurance through the exchanges.

You lost. Get over it. You're not going to win by sending this country straight into the tower.

people will die. it is that simple.
some people without insurance, would be unable to get insurance under the GOP plan and will die.
How many? No one knows.

Imagine if you had a pre-existing condition, say stage 3 cancer, no job, were dropped from your insurance, and had already gone broke getting to this point.

Oct 1st you would be able to buy coverage which started on Jan 1st. PERIOD.
Assuming that you could survive until then, you would be able to get treatment for your cancer.
And not be dropped or denied or limited in care or or or or or.
You would have a chance for life.

/yup, the GOP is literally trying to kill poor people.

Not to mention a compliant media who will swallow hook, line and, sinker the "Democrats forced the government shutdown when they wouldn't negotiate with us" bullshiat lie that will allow them to keep the House next year.

I am curious. Does this tool really expect all GOP congresscritters to always obey the party line? Seriously?
Does he not understand that representatives are supposed to represent their district. period. That senators are supposed to represent their state.

sounds good in theory, except
a) no rational person is going to run against an of these people in the primaries because the primaries have been hijacked by the radicals.
and
b) in the general, there are still too many people who wont vote for anyone with a D next to their name because they have been mentally warped into thinking that all democrats are communist how hate Jesus, and guns, but want to take all the money from white people and give it to blah people so they can buy more jeweled studded Iphones.

Gerrymandering has only added to this problem.   You could be a Democrat and spout Tea Party red meat crap verbatim, and still lose to an anti-gun, pro-abortion, and pro gay rights Republican in many of these districts.

Now this could a beginning of a shift.  I know for me, the way the republicans acted under Clinton was a wake up call.  I went into Clintons Presidency thinking the same crap.  "he's going to wreck the country by driving up massive taxes and spending, etc.. etc.."
It was watching the republicans, and actually listening to Limbaugh that began turning me against the GOP.  Between Bush's Tax cuts and Iraq war  mixed with the Tea Party, I have come to loath the GOP.   I know a couple of friends who have gone through similar trains of thoughts.

So the real best hope is that this will serve to further alienate a few moderates so that maybe by 2020, we can see some shifts (especially in state legislatures) and perhaps get rid of some of the gerrymandering.

Really fascinating interview with Paul Ryan at NRO. Apparently no one in the GOP caucus actually believes Obama when he says he's not negotiate over the debt ceiling. They really think this is a normal negotiation process and that Obama will cave.

We warned what was left of sane mainstream republicans not to get in bed with these extremists.  They didn't listen. Boehner welcomed them with open arms, hand fend them, and wiped their asses.

 Now these terrorists run the asylum and the most impotent speaker in recent times has no other option but to strap a bomb along his chest.

/It's going to get worse before it gets better.
 
2013-09-28 04:24:07 PM  
So their counteroffer is this: nothing? Not even the revenue sources which they'd appreciate if President Obama would put up personally?

GOP needs to realize they aren't Michael Corleone, they're more like the guy in Godfather 3 who gets stabbed with his own glasses. Power wears out those who don't have it.
