Why should the American people be the only victims of Obamacare? Why shouldn't the Congress and FOO (Friends of Obama) who were given exemptions to this disaster have to suffer the consequences of socialized medicine?
The media can paint this as the GOP's fault. What else is new? It's what they do. But if the Democrats would agree to Congress participating in this fiasco along with the rest of us, the shutdown would be over. Everyone goes down with this ship. But Obama said today on NPR that he absolutely does not have to negotiate anything. How Presidential! How representative of all the people! If a Republican president ever behaved in such an autocratic manner, he would fed to the sharks.
As for the shutdown -- does this mean the government isn't spending even more of our hard-earned money? Good.
As for Obama's fearmongering, I think he summed up the problem nicely when he said, “the Federal government is America’s largest employer.” That, sir, is the problem.
