  • You Get NOTHING

    After shutting down the government, costing many working people their jobs, and pushing the country to the brink of a catastrophic default, the GOP has caved. And gets NOTHING. Well except for a historic stench on their reputations. Can we now ignore the tea-brained Right and let the adults in the room do the talking.

    Is Obamacare defunded yet?

        Surely they have learned they were oh so wrong by now, right?

          Status quo. Keep raising the debt ceiling, refuse to pass a budget, refuse to compromise, continue failing the American people.

            "Many Republicans knew this was going to be a disaster going in. But just as many totally misread Obama. Just days before the shutdown numerous high profile Republicans insisted there was no way Obama wouldn't negotiate. But probably the key driver of this drama has been President Obama's refusal to negotiate over raising the debt ceiling.

            Yes, there's been some back and forth here at the end, but as begging like this suggests, it's mainly been to sort of out terms of surrender. But that refusal has defined the entire standoff."

                The Obamacare implosion is just giving them another exit. They don't have to push for delay. Because it's now obvious that delay is inevitable.

                Thanks to the well-oiled execution of your federal government, there's absolutely no way Obamacare can come anywhere near their enrollment goals. Which means new enrollees aren't going to help pay for all those preexisting sick they were supposed to chip in for. Which leads us to near-term panic and rate spikes.

                And there's only one group who can now sit back and say "Hey, we did everything we could. But these guys were willing to shut down and default over it"

                  The can is kicked down the road. Gives everyone a bit more time to prepare though. Would utilize it if you haven't for yourself/family.

                    All they ever do is kick the can down the road. That has been the norm for well over a decade.

                      Asked how Boehner gets out of this mess, a GOP lawmaker close to Boehner responded, “With a clear, consistent history of what actually happened. … to remind everybody we had a grand strategy until Cruz played the stupid card.”
                      Ouch.

                        74 times since 1962 is what I find. The good thing is the battle gets harder and harder to fight.

                        Not even a massive recession was enough for America to really tightens it's belt. I was just out in California for a week and oh man it's as if the good times are back! lol

                        $800,000 1 or 2 bedroom condos....you got to be ****ting me.

                        Well people can blame or give props the government all they want. At the end of the day we as individuals I feel are still in control of our destiny.

                        Our government and society is so focused on the here and now with little vision for the future. Debt ceiling issue? What issue? We have a couple months to figure it out! lol

                        At some point the can will get crushed and my gut says it will involve a new currency/massive devaluation.

                          Consumers have until March 31st to enroll. Be sure to come back then and admit you were wrong.

                          I'd also like to point out that the federal website is only there to cover states that refused to set up their own exchanges. States that didn't refuse have their own websites that are performing just fine thank you very much.

                          So if all states had set up insurance exchanges as planned there would likely be few online enrollment problems.

                              "Really, States, it's all your fault that you expected us to be able to actually do what we promised in that law we shoved down your throats. You should've just ignored us and done it yourself. Oh, and you're welcome.
