    Republicans? Don't you mean the Tea Party? Republicans are the conservatives who want a clean vote. Republicans are the ones who want to win elections. Republicans are the ones who are willing to compromise.

    The Tea Party? The Tea Party caucus are the ones who campaigned on shutting down the government, if that's what it takes to overturn the PP&ACA. The Tea Party caucus are the ones who signed oaths, swearing to never raise the debt ceiling ever again. The Tea Party caucus are the ones practicing political terrorism, which is threatening to damage an already fragile recovery.

    It is NOT the Tea Party... it is teabaggers. They deserve to be capitalized nor do they deserve to be granted a name change after they proudly called themselves teabaggers for weeks until some ne'er do well spilled the beans to them and told them what it means. They are not patriots, nor are they sane.
    teabaggers!

    President Barack Obama continues to refuse to negotiate with Republicans.

    And why should he? The ACA was presented, voted on and is now the law. To refuse to obey the law is nothing short of UNLAWFL and TPublicans should not be given a platform to celebrate breaking this country's laws if so, are we going to start breaking laws until we have another republican "kind" of president?

    Okay lets look at the real picture here. What about people who are barely making enough money to put food on the table? You expect them to pay for health insurance around 300 per person each month? It's going to make the poor even poorer get a grip obama. You are just being an idiot. You DO NOT care about the middle and lower classes.

    Maybe a one or two million man march on Washington, would get someone's attention. So far no one seems to be listening to the people anymore.
