“Not only is the campaign and election over, your guy lost again, so is any hope the Tea Baggers have of repealing the ACA. Of course now they're changing their reasons for shutting down the government again, it's gone from defunding, to delaying, and has now switched to entitlements, the Tea Baggers are searching hard for some reason the voters will support, but they're not going to find any except from their own. The ACA was signed into Law even longer ago than the last campaign.”

“Guys...just because you go to an Ivy League school doesn't mean you are more of an expert. This article is funny. Truth of the matter is they are college students and we can all agree that we were young and stupid in college. Just because you got a high SAT score and can write a good application, doesn't make you anymore of an authority than the next college student.”

“I can't believe that these quacks can't come to a compromise. It's unbelievable to me. I was really expecting to wake up and see that they finally came up with something over night. This is ridiculous and this website really needs to stop being on on only the Dems corner on this. Clearly they are being just as stupid.”

Olivio on Oct 1, 2013 at 11:06:22

“Come up with something like what? Delaying Obamacare? That's not going to happen!
Last presidential election's campaign revolved in a substantial part around Obamacare. Mitt Rmoney promised, for example, that if he were elected POTUS, he would repeal that law, he would defund Planned Parenthood and he would make sure that the birth control pill is not covered under any health insurance. He resoundingly lost in an unbelievable landslide. Most of us rejected those regressive policies. The GOTP lost seats in the Senate and House of Representatives.
So, now the radical right-wingers are taking the country hostage, because they want to force those policies to us. THAT'S ABSOLUTELY UNACCEPTABLE! We will not let that happen.

If you don't like to be told the truth and facts, don't come on this website. The stupid here is clearly you, right-winger. You lost the election, thus you lost the fight over Obamacare (ACA). Get lost! It's only a matter of time before John Merlot Boehner and his drinking right-wing buddies capitulate. There is no other outcome here.”

“Why should the Dems negotiate with these domestic terrorists? If they cave this time, the GOP will simply pull this stunt again. It has worked for them before...this time the Dems and the POTUS must not cave.”

JVene on Oct 1, 2013 at 10:44:17

“Really?

Factor this into your thinking:

There are 20 House Republicans on the record stating they'd vote for the Senate's clean CR.

Virtually all Democrats in the House would vote for the Senate's clean CR.

If the House voted on the Senate's clean CR, the house WOULD PASS A CLEAN CR.

Discussion would be over.

Why has that vote not happened?

Because Boehner won't schedule that bill for a vote, because he knows full well that IT WOULD PASS THE HOUSE IF HE DID.

That ends the question as to who is making this happen.

The House would vote FOR the Senate's clean CR is they simply voted on it.

Who is in control of that vote?

Boehner, for as long as he appeases the loud voices in the Republican party, including Ted Cruz.”

“I do agree that Huffpo swings liberal (I'd prefer unbiased), but in this case it's KIND OF justified. The Republicans took the government hostage to defund an entire government program that had already been passed into law. The fight over the ACA was over - they had already lost before they decided to attach the issue to the government shutdown. Now, the REAL root cause here is partisan bickering which only exists because both parties choose to engage in a sports team type of mentality when approaching their constituents. That attitude is responsible for this problem, and that's a problem both parties are a part of.”

“There will be no compromise on the ACA.”

JVene on Oct 1, 2013 at 10:41:03

“Compromise isn't required.

No further discussion is required.

On record there are at least 20 Republicans that stated they would vote for the Senate's Clean CR.

Virtually all Democrats would vote for the Senate's Clean CR.

If the House voted on the Senate's Clean CR, THE HOUSE WOULD PASS THE BILL RIGHT NOW.

Why has that vote not happened?

Because Republicans, and Boehner, know full well that the Senate's Clean CR would pass if they voted on it, and they're refusing to let that happen.

They're refusing to bring that up for a vote BECAUSE IT WOULD PASS THE HOUSE IF THEY DID.

Compromise not required.
Discussion not required.
The vote would end the discussion.

The Republicans are perpetuating this nonsense.”
