The House has passed a continuing resolution to keep the govt going and the leftists will stop it to save their beloved obamafarce that the majority of American's don't want any part of. I have little hope the media will share this fact with the people of this country and instead blame the House Republicans for doing exactly what we elected them to do.

The fact is simple. The government will stop because of obama and harry being unwilling to give up their socialist plans for health care.

and you cannot remove funding from something that is mandatory

The pillars of the law’s health insurance expansion strategy—increased eligibility for Medicaid and the new premium and cost-sharing subsidies for private health insurance—are exempt from the annual appropriations process. These so-called “mandatory” or “entitlement” programs are permanent and have permanent funding authority. Furthermore, the Department of Health and Human Services has the ability to fund related provisions without seeking additional appropriations from Congress. For example, Federal grants to states to plan and build the new health insurance exchanges fall into this category. It also includes funding necessary to immediately lower insurance costs for uninsured individuals with preexisting conditions and early retirees.

Of course the left cultist will blame the right. The House passes a bill with a 5% cut in food stamp spending consistent with a recovering economy and the the left tries to convince the sheeple that folks are going to be dropping dead in the streets from starvation unless they vote for democrats in the midterm.

Send Bill Clinton a letter of protest--he did almost all of the stuff wrecking our economy. Decisions have real world consequences no matter how good they sound at the time.

And the right cultist will blame the left. See the OP.

There are no right wing cultist other than perhaps Michelle Bachman as their application for tax-exempt status is being delayed by the IRS. Maybe one day they will actually be able to organize and recruit like unions do, but until then, all a girl can do is dream.

Why would a man who spent billions in taxpayer dollars giving payola to the solar companies want it to be cloudy? Oh that's right, they went under so, like vampires, they don't need sunlight anymore.

Well to be fair, those who dislike the ACA do so on opposite ends of what to do. The split is almost 50/50 on kill it or fix it according to the latest Pew poll so CONs are playing silly numbers games trying to make it seem the majority want ACA killed. Pew also shows those who know more about the law have a much higher opinion of it and those who live in states that have set-up the health insurance exchanges have a much higher opinion than those where the states has left the exchange up to the Federal Government.

Now when it comes to not funding a law past by Congress the CONs are playing silly games, I doubt many Americans see what they are doing as 'good' and if the Senate refuses to consider the GOP based budget plan I don't think the public will blame Reid or Obama.

The House GOP poll has a large majority(71) of Americans NOT in favor of shutting down government as a way to force defunding of ACA, Even CONs are 53% against it. Poll by David Winston.

The Pew Research Center has GOP self identification down to 19% of those polled. pg 8 july 17-21. dem 29% indie 46%

Hart Research has a candidate committed to fixing the ACA winning by 15% over a candidate vowing to kill it.

According to a Faux Noise poll done sept 6 and 9- 22% of CON voters favor ACA while only 14% favor 'Obamacare' so it does appear there is some simple knee jerk reaction to the President's name.

So I tend to believe the ACA is here to stay, the only real issue is how to work on making it better. Call that what you wish but that is closer to the true will of the people... :peace

Conspiracy theories are convoluted, There's a reason why he's using his weather control device like that.

The same reason Clinton used a cigar I would imagine--politically impotent people need to find something to do to pass the time.

Libertarian - Right

if it falls under mandatory spending as you claim then why is the democrats raising a stink even if the government shuts down it is funded

I will tell you why the democrats are going to be forced to go on record supporting the train wreck that the majority of the American public is against and those from a red or purple state will lose their jobs because of their vote to fund it

Where did you get the notion that they can't refuse to find it? Does that come from the same mindset that says by executive order the president can choose to not enforce provisions or choose to not enforce immigration laws? Perhaps you missed the sequester where they refused to find salaries of federal employees and engaged in mandated cuts to existing programs.

Obama, Reid and Pelosi put us in the between a rock and a hard place position knowingly. They knew full well this turd wouldn't float forever so they wrote permanence into it. This is the most disgusting thing politicians have foisted upon us in decades. I no longer care if the republican candidate is an absolute idiot or if the dem candidate is a savior with halo - I'm voting for the one against Obamacare from now on.

It appears that the forces of evil are attempting to make their lies into truth. Their specious lies about Obamacare, the economy and unemployment are evidently not being accepted by the majority of the American public.

They have gotten away with this for decades, "oh its mandatory" is BULL. The 2nd amendment is mandatory too but they have no trouble restricting it.
