    Seems pretty simple: the Senate voted on the House bill and it failed, but one man won't allow the House to vote on the Senate bill.

     

    Rep. Boehner do your job.

     




     

    Um....again, you should maybe try reading a paper or watching the news.  Republicans have had 4 proposals in the last 3 days, tried to negotiate in good faith, and HARRY REID has stopped the DEMOCRATICALLY controlled Senate from voting.

    Geeeeeeeeeeez...............should you be allowed near the keyboard?

     




    damn, are you delusional. Good faith, huh? You're cluelass.

    ACA wasnt voted on and passed like every other law......it was jammed down our throats through reconciliation without an actual vote and it has never had a majority popularity in the country...but who cares whether or not its good for america.....as long as it advances the liberal agenda lets go for it!!!

    Fact; More people for voted for Democrats for the U.S. House of Representives than Republicans. The only reason the Repubs have the majority there is because the districts have been so badly gerrymandered so as to give the "tea party " repubs more credibilty than they deserve.

    So what will it be next time?  Abortion?  School prayer?   The repeal of all gun laws? The repeal of Medicare?

    Open the govt and then Obama should talk. Blackmail will get you nowhere and the party of fiscal discipline is spending a fortune every day the govt is close.

    The Affordable Care Act of 2012 is a law, passed by the citizens of the USA and should stay as such.  Members of the House and Congress who delay our government should be penalized with fines from their very own pocket for putting our government in jeopardy.

    I missed the "Obamacare election" that the voters voted for I guess.. I do recall Ms. Pelosi screaming to pass somethign that no body read. I also recall that House switched to Republican majority after that as a back lash to Obamacare.

    Great idea to have the Americna people vote on it though.

    Whoa!  Remember what the original problem was to begin with....the debt ceiling.  It was the Republicans who wanted to tack on health care and other issues.  Get back to the original problem and get the Government going again!

    In response to L142's comment:

    The democrats not negotiating on any proposals, and then blaming the tea party faction & others is despicable.  The Dems rammed thru Obamacare with all democratic votes & now even they don't want it.  Obama is once again on the golf course, reid shut down the senate all weekend & returns hours before a shutdown.  The Dems will not compromise & play the blame game, all the while hoping for a shutdown.  Well they got what they wanted & I blame them.



    Really? The Dems rammed it through? Well, ok, it was a party-line vote. Then what happened? Obama was re-elected and the Supreme Court ruled it was constitutional. The American people spoke. And Obamacare is here to stay. Now, gerrymandered GOP reps from districts that look nothing like the real USA are closing the government down because they can't get their way. They are abusing the Constitution of this country and should get nothing in return. NOTHING.

    Sure it was voted on - Obama won relection vowing to keep his healthcare law. Romney ran on repeal. Romney lost (in a big way). It's quite easy.

    What is more unconsitutional? A bill that helps to provide affordable health care insurance options for those that need it most in a system where health care inflation is out of control and has been for some time, or the fact that thousands if not millions of struggling, middle-class families are out of work due to the furlough and are not being paid a dime because grown adults can't come together and compromise - who are all the while being paid. 

    Let's take their pay away until they can learn to work together and get those affected back to work. The health care bill is not going away anytime soon, so instead of trying to kill it, lawmakers should work together and try and figure out a way to make it better.
