I quoted this right from the US SENATE HEARING JUST NOW!
Ok the floor is your democrats. Why on Earth are these two conditions worth shutting down the government?
The purpose of this cluster**** isn't to delay, it's to kill the bill. In 11 weeks, we'll be going through the same nonsense again. The Tea Party are scared to death that ACA will actually work and give Obama a landmark bill.
Obama, not running again, has Obamacare as his legacy, he's not going to let it go.
Anyway, to answer is it worth shutting the government down?? Of course not, but the House is doing this, not Obama. The GOP opposed Medicare and SS, this is more ideology at work, not government.
The Tea Party are on a suicide mission and I wish them the best of luck and hope they succeed in their 'mission.'
I also hope ACA succeeds, though it will need some serious tweaking.
