So, NOW the "Republicans" want to "negotiate" on Obamacare? Bullshit.


No, they don’t want to negotiate it. They never have and they never will. They want to kill it, and always have: read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patient_Protection_and_Affordable_Care_Act for a refresher. Short form: “Republicans” have, since 2009, actively worked to sabotage the process, even when their own ideas (like the individual mandate) got added, and liberal ideas like single payer got removed.

The ACA passed without a single ”Republican” vote. It has survived multiple repeal efforts by unhinged Teabagging Congressional ”representatives”. It was judged Constitutional by the uber-conservative Supreme Court. It was validated again by the American people in the 2012 elections. And the Elephants are STILL trying to kill it, by shutting down the government. This is not negotiation.

No, the “Republicans” do not want to negotiate the ACA. They want to do by extra-Constitutional means what they could not accomplish within the law. They want to kill it. And that is all that the Boehner Brigade and Marching McConnells want to do.

1. The POTUS has always been clear on this. The Affordable Care Act will always be open

to negotiations to improve it but IN THE CORRECT role for changes within the law.

2. Yes, he means honest and substantive negotiations

Repubs don't mean that. They want to replay a game that they lost.
