We will be in another game of chicken on Feb 6. Up until then, Republicans will negotiate to get rid of Obamacare, come out of negotiations, and spin it as much as they can. "Obama won't negotiate" they will say over and over, and then the blame game will go into full effect. Dem's should put some extreme left wing items on the table for negotiations like illegalizing guns and see how much the Tea Party gives up in negotiations. Ask for reasonable concessions, and you may get some. Ask for nonsense and you will get nothing.

For anyone who thinks that allowing the government to have more control over healthcare than they already do will benefit the country, I have a firsthand example of government inefficiency that may make you think twice. I happen to work for the federal government (as an essential employee who did not just get back from a two week vacation), and today I attempted to check my government email which nothing is ever sent too, but if I don't log in monthly, it will add $200 to our national debt to get it set up again. I attempted to login to all 10 government computers (which I'm sure were bought for at least $3000 a piece). Seven of them froze up when I tried to login and the other 3 were so slow I gave up after an hour and a half. When I attempted to find the computer tech (at 11:30 am), he had left for weekend. Apparently after a two week vacation (which I'm sure he'll be paid for), I guess working until past noon on Friday is too much to ask. Just food for though for anyone who believes somehow government involvement in healthcare will make the system more efficient and less expensive.

And we only need to look at past experiences like the post office to be assured of how efficiently they will handle our healthcare.

ted cruze took the clown car right to the edge of the cliff. he is the one-eyed king in the land of the blind. to paraphrase Obama, if you don't like a particular president or the way things are going, then run for office and get elected. then push for change. but don't break it. and these idiots almost put our country in an economic abyss. this cannot happen again!!
