Are you ****ing kidding me?

Today House conservatives introduced the first detailed alternative to ObamaCare — legislation to increase the tax breaks for those who buy their own insurance.

Giving a tax break to those who purchase insurance isn't a alternative to Obamacare. GTFO with that weak shit. As Newt Gingrich said, the GOP haven't come up with ANYTHING. This is NEWT GINGRICH. The man who was near the top in the GOP voting to run for President. He's calling the party out because he knows they have nothing. He's right. They don't.

What "last ditch effort"? The ACA is a law and shutting down the gov't doesn't change that at all.

As for partial funding, NO ONE should accept that. The ACA is a law. Americans are expected to abide by the law, period.

If you want to change the ACA, fine. Take legislative action. But neither shutting down the government nor offering a partial payment scheme achieve that goal.

If Congressmen offered partial payments so that they could violate the law against murder, would you approve? If not, then please recognize that the law is the law, whether it be homicide or the ACA.

Re: So... The Government is Shut Down...

Conservatives need to admit defeat on health care and move on, the time to negotiate is over. Don't they have anything important to do? Like I don't know, passing the budget? Our gov't is flat out embarrassing.

Re: So... The Government is Shut Down...

So proceed with a bad law just because it has been made a law, despite the number of jobs it's costing and more people are LOSING coverage than gaining it because of the legal requirements placed on employers and individuals alike, the fact that the Congressional Budget Office says it's costing 4 times the projected amount and will bankrupt the country, the fact that people's rate are tripling after being told it would decrease or cost nothing, it's driving many doctors to retire rather than deal with it, it's own authors admit it's a failure, the people who passed it are too afraid to live under it themselves and exempt not only themselves and their corporate friends and donors...and the list is endless?

The fact that someone is fighting this and not backing down gives our country a chance to actually survive it.

At minimum, the whole thing should be delayed until everything is actually in place to implement it. They've had three years already, but this debacle was not ready to be rolled out.

If you want a budget passed, blame goes solely on the Senate Democrats and President. They have not passed one since Obama has been President and we're heading into year #6. There's absolutely no excuse, the Democrats held the White House and BOTH houses of Congress for 2 years and still did not pass a budget.

That alone should be an impeachable offense, not performing the most important job duty they're required to do.

Lay off the vacations and parties and do your job, Mr. President and Senator Reid.

Re: So... The Government is Shut Down...

Please let's get something straight: if someone thinks that the ACA is a "bad law," that is an opinion.

The ACA is a law. That's a fact. Our whole system is based on such facts. The system is designed to operate lawfully.

Please stop acting like your opinion on the ACA is a fact. It is not.

LOL. Once again Fox News reports a satire story to be true "news." Note to Fox News: please hire a fact checker.
