The Hill: “A faction on the far right of the Republican party who’ve convinced their leadership to threaten a government shutdown if they can’t shut off the Affordable Care Act. Some are actually willing to plunge America into default if they can’t defund the Affordable Care Act,” Obama said.
“Think about that. They’d actually plunge this country back into recession — all to deny the basic security of health care to millions of Americans.”
Obama said he will not negotiate with Republican lawmakers over raising the debt ceiling.
That statement’s logic is intentionally misleading to play all of America as fools. By the same logic trail you can just as well state that:
President Obama has convinced the the DNC to threaten a government shutdown if the RNC just won’t accept off the Affordable Care Act as is. Some are actually willing to plunge America into default if the RNC refuses to fund the Affordable Care Act.
What all constituents needed to remember is that BOTH sides are in effect threatening to shut down the government over the Affordable Care Act without any pretense at trying to work out a solution. Posturing and finger pointing is no way to run country. During this midterm election year, all 435 seats in the United States House of Representatives and 33 of the 100 seats in the United States Senate should see the incumbents replaced in mass with grownups willing do do the Peoples work instead of the Parties continued posturing and gridlock.
I may be a politics junky, gun loving, beer swilling, Detroit Lions fan preparing for the coming Zombie Invasion but I will not be suffered the fool.
