Default House Republicans to tie debt limit increase to Obamacare

I am so sick of these republican freaks. They are so partisan and stupid they would rather screw the country to get their way.

It's like an idiot holding himself hostage. Cantor is saying either do what I want or I will shoot us all in the leg.

Do we have to play this crap out yet again? This country deserves to be slipping with idiots like that in charge.

I just saw a list of the countries where people are the happiest. We ranked 17th. Almost all the top countries have put together a health care system that works. We have to be stuck in stupid with numbnuts like Cantor who gambles with our economy like it's a fu*king game.

House Republicans are preparing to target President Barack Obama’s health-care law as the GOP and the White House head toward a showdown over raising the $16.7 trillion U.S. debt limit sometime this fall.

National Review reported early Tuesday afternoon that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor told Republicans that the House GOP will demand a one-year delay to the president’s signature health-care law in exchange for raising the debt ceiling.

A House Republican aide later told MarketWatch that delaying Obamacare or parts of the law will be one of the conditions Republicans hope to achieve for raising the debt limit — but that the particulars haven’t been decided.

That the GOP is painting a fresh target on Obamacare should come as no surprise to Washington watchers. The Republican-led House has taken numerous votes on defunding or repealing the president’s health-care law, like this one in May. Enrollment in insurance exchanges created by the law begins on Oct. 1, and policies take effect in January.

The clock is rapidly ticking for Republicans to work their conditions into the debt-ceiling debate. A new estimate from the Bipartisan Policy Center, released Tuesday, predicts that the U.S. will hit its debt ceiling between Oct. 18 and Nov. 5.

The White House has warned multiple times of the consequences of failing to raise the debt limit, and insisted on a no-conditions increase. Republicans have in turn insisted on conditions including spending cuts.

Glad to see they are doing what we elected them to do: oppose BHO at every single turn. Never let him rest, hinder every move he makes, and make sure he spends more time fighting them rather than running the country into the ground.

Fighting and not working together is what is running this country into the ground. They lost on the ACA. You don't get to keep playing the same game without everyone leaving and turning out the lights.

It's a law upheld by the SC. It's been partially implemented with favorable results. Why are you so adamant this be pressed when we have otra stuff to do, man?

It's like a rule. Be Anti Obama at all costs. Even if our credit rating gets screwed. Just what we need for national confidence. People threatening to not pay the bills they created. It's idiotic.

Don't want it. Never wanted it. Never will want it. And my elected officials work for me. They are doing exactly what I want them to do which is to hinder Obama any chance they get. I commend them.

So, the republicans are trying to kill a law opposed by the majority of Americans. Bravo

I'm sure the MSM will call this what it is: "Obama threatens gov't shutdown over ACA funding".

We know that playing games with the debt ceiling hurts the economy. We don't know what the ACA will do but the negative PR has people confused. They believe shooting ourselves in the foot is superior thinking.

Anyway, I'm done here and said my piece.

Good. Run along and sniff Obama's jock.

As for my Republicans: they get a big ole "attaboy".
