Whats funny is i bet when it comes time to fine people for not having insurance Obama gives a waiver on it, and extension. He just doesn't want to give it to repubs.
I don't buy that. I think Obama, at this point, must listen to the presidential historians. If he gives in to this, the presidency itself will be crippled. The anarchists in the House have put him in a no-compromise position and then demanded a compromise. For the good of the office, he has to tell them to go **** themselves.
