Turn the lights back on..................

The following was posted on the webpage of Okla. Republican Representative Jim Bridenstine:

"The reason the federal government is shut down is because President Obama and his allies continue to protect a failed law that is hurting the country.  Congress should ensure not another dime of taxpayer money is spent on Obamacare."

Oh those pesky republicans....they do have a way of spinning a yarn.............failed law they say......you mean the one that hasn't had the opportunity to fail?  PLEASE.....give me a break.   I've never been so disgusted in my life.  

 "A CBS News poll found that only 25 percent of Americans approve of shutting down the government over differences about Obamacare.  Prior to the shutdown, Republican strategists reportedly believed that the continuing unpopularity of Obamacare would translate into public support for efforts to use the budget process to delay or defund it. It’s clear that they miscalculated."  (Fix.gov)

Congressional Republicans cannot reasonably expect Obama to compromise on the signature achievement of his presidency. Now that the Affordable Health Care Act is going into effect, it will be up to voters in future elections to evaluate it. Republicans should turn their attention to fiscal policy, the budget and debt ceiling deadlines that triggered the current crisis.

I cannot stand to hear the Republicans say that Obama refuses to compromise when what they mean by "compromise" is do it their way. Who do they think they are fooling on this one?

The Republican 'my way or the highway' policy is nobody's definition of compromise - except the Tea Party's. How much longer must we all suffer this insanity?

The whole Tea Party and their puppeteers need a trip to my granddad's woodshed to experience the stinging retribution of his big leather strap. Because they are acting like spoiled children. A chicken pox on the all!
