You cannot have watched a TV news program this past week and not hear about the showdown, shutting down the government and defunding "Obamacare."

We'll start off with Politico, which is not a right-wing publication at all.

The headline Tuesday, is the healthcare plan the president sold three years ago is not the healthcare plan which is about to go into effect.

The not-so affordable care is about to go into effect and there are hardly, if any, navigators hired to guide through this mess.

Then again,does it matter? The navigators will have no specials skills except they belong to groups which support the president.

I'll just mention they discovered a glitch in the big "Obamacare" computer system, but to me the entire thing is a glitch.

Health care prices are going up. I spoke with a friend yesterday who had her insurance canceled and she can now sign back up for the same policy for almost double the price.

A liberal friend of mine last night asked me to give it five years, my response, no.

When I pressed him he admitted he and all his like-minded friends are hoping the system collapses and it all goes to single-payer. That means completely government controlled.

When I pressed him more he said he wanted insurance for more than just the rich. I told him I have a great insurance policy right now and I'm about to get an even better one and I am anything but rich.

No comment from him.

Just re-boot the talking points, back to the everyone needs insurance rant. You cant make people buy stuff. It's unconstitutional.

That's what's wrong with "Obamacare," its unconstitutional.

I've run out of time, so I'll save my comments about John Cornyn backstabbing Ted Cruz for another day.

That's my point of view, what's yours?

In the end cruz voted to take the defunding provision out of the CR and send it back to the house. He did not even stand up for his own defund ObamaCare language.....what kind of stupidity is that?
The bottom line is that ObamaCare is here to stay and those of you without insurance, you will now pay for your own medical cost by either buying insurance in the private sector or by paying a fine. Bout time you freeloaders got off of the medical welfare roll. LIKE IT OR NOT YOU PAY

When Chief Justice Roberts changed his vote to decide in favor of Obamacare not as a mandate but as a tax, he in essence re-wrote the law passed by congress. This usurp of authority merged the Judicial Branch into the Legislative and was the first in a series of mitigations to be handed down from Washington to campaign contributors proving ours to be nation of laws with no rules. Who could begin to imagine that in America a tax could be applied to some but not all, oh wait, never-mind.

jpttm, I HAVE SEARCHED EVERY NEWS SOURCE INCLUDING FOX FOR ANY TRANSCRIPT OR VIDEO WITH THAT QUOTE FROM PELOSI AND CAN NOT FIND IT ANYWHERE (she would not let the right interfere with the growth of gov't.). iF YOU ARE NOT TELLING A LIE PLEASE POST A LINK TO THE SOURCE WHERE IT QUOTES HER SAYING WHAT YOU CLAIM.

Pelosi let the cat out of the bag yesterday when she said she would not let the right interfere with the growth of gov't. They don't care about the American people, they care about the (their) power of gov't. And if minorities must suffer, so be it. The more minorities suffer at the hands of gov't. the more they support expansion of their own suffering. And yes, the blueblood GOP's are guilty also. They're really no different than the elitist Dems.

I know just like the republicans and bush were not really concerned about debt and started two wars without paying for them....right

Again, you're right, but as usual ,as your attempt at sarcasm hints, it's for the wrong reason. Bush and Obama went down the same WRONG path for the same WRONG reason. The difference, Bush walked, Obama is running. We criticize Obama for the debt he's added up, but Bush would have added it too. But then, you're too partisan to see or admit to it.

If they're going to shut down the government it should be over their inability to pass a budget. This is fiscal cliff 2. The answer both side are shooting for is to pass another temporary resolution kicking the can down the road to December. In other words more of the same. My health care premiums go up every year. Further more the real inflation I feel is higher than the rate the government reports. My wages don't keep up with my rising cost of living, and obviously no one in congress cares.

and I bet that you pay between 18% and 35 % in income taxes too unlike ole Mitt Romney who only pays 13% on his income.

U.S. Census Bureau on Monday stated, that the national rate of uninsured dropped slightly to 15.4 percent from 15.7 percent.
AND OBAMACARE IS NOT EVEN FULLY IN PLACE....LOOKS LIKE IT IS WORKING AFTER ALL.

Health care prices have been going up for more than 20 years in Texas . I remember a 23% increase in my health insurance premiums in just one year,1996 and from 3% to 13 % every year after that up until today. WAS THAT BECAUSE OF OBAMACARE?

Perry directed the Texas Department of Insurance to enact strict regulations on federal "navigators," individuals trained to help others find a private health plan and apply for tax subsidies to pay for it through the federal health insurance exchange. SO PERRY HAS DIRECTED THE TEXAS STATE GOVERNMENT TO SPEND OUR TAX DOLLARS TO KEEP US FROM BUYING PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE??? NOW THAT IS BEING A DICTATOR.

Yes it is the same healthcare... Pelosi said it... 'we have to pass it in order to see what is in it'.

Yea she is an airhead, but a rich one. Rich people can say airhead things, especially Democrat ones, and the press gives them a pass.

But the healthcare law is the same awful law we knew about 3 years ago. And the train wreck is almost here in time for the 2014 mid-term elections.

Pelosi lives in the same district as George Kaiser, the architect of Obamacare, and the owner of Kaiser Permenente. He is also the Solyndra benefactor of taxpayer monies in the green energy fraud Obama pulled on America. Being the 10th richest man in America he brags to have never paid an income tax.

according to the library of congress, george kaiser was NOT the architect of Obamacare. Here is the legislation H.R.3590
Latest Title: Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act
Sponsor: Rep Rangel, Charles B. [NY-15] (introduced 9/17/2009) Cosponsors (40)

Rep Crowley, Joseph [NY-7] - 9/

Idiot.

Don't be so hard on yourself. I know you can not provide any factual source to back up your claim.

You may also want to take a civics class because nobody introduces any legislation but elected legislators...not any CEO or private citizen can do that...just read the U. S. Constitution.
