“You may be very much correct...but holding us to the default line to force concessions? That's not how negotiations work, that's not how we problem solve in this country.”

“Obama has set the tone, repeatedly. We are not going to negotiate the well being of the U.S. economy and our ability to pay our debts so the minority party can "get their way."

The reality is the U.S. is based on a balance of power, I think we can all agree that we don't want the POTUS to make unilateral decisions. So we must rely on Congress to act like adults and come to the table.”

“I think congress is way overpaid and they are running amok with power and deficit spending. they need fiscal constraints.”

“I like how you have completely twisted facts/logic to blame the POTUS for this mess...and not the Republican majority in House...

Also, props on finding your capslock key...repeatedly.”

“the buck stops with the president and he sets the tone.

“No Yahoo is legitimately concerned that the president will give in to totally ridiculous demands in order to avoid a default. That will completely change the majority rule process and allow the loudest screamers the power. That is far worse then letting the GOP show their true disconnect with the American people.”

“This is not how the goal is accomplished. If they want to repeal a law then you get a Republican majority in Congress and the Whitehouse. That requires campaigning on actual solutions and getting voted in.

Possibly wrecking the progress of our fragile economy?? That is simply unacceptable...and to borrow a phrase from your group, Un-American.”

Because the House is doing such a fab job of coming up with a solution. Surely the President leaving the country will magically make the House Republicans come to their senses.

“They aren't fond of it when you call it "Obamacare," starting calling it the ACA or discussing individual merits (i.e. kids can stay on insurance until 26) and the approval ratings easily double.

The Republicans did an excellent job of undercutting the "Obamacare" brand, but not so much on the actual solution itself.”

MPCpiano626 on Oct 3, 2013 at 11:20:14

“The call it Obamacare on the official website. Good enough for me.

Obama did a good job of passing the law in the first place by bribes, threats, and changing the rules.

So here we are.”

“Lib here, and I don't want a 1 party system by any shot. I want two functioning parties, with a priority for U.S. interests, working out tough compromises.

We need our Republican half to add balance to the conversation. What we have right now are a bunch of toddlers throwing a tantrum and basing their decisions on straight up baloney. Lets bring back the adults!”

“I asked for facts and figures, and you have obviously provided nothing. Your opinions, and hysteria, do not a fact make. The name calling has been duly noted, but is simply a deflection that highlights that you have no actual proof or data to back your claims.
