The United States government has been shut down at the end of the fiscal year (oct. 1st) due to the lack of willingness to negotiate about the affordable health care act between the President Obama, senate democrats, and senate republicans.
Even an overwhelmingly low approval rating by the general public has still fallen on deaf ears in the senate and white house and the democrats refuse to negotiate the terms of the bill as well as all funding of all government entities because they (Obama and the democrats) aren’t getting what they want. The republicans have taken a stand as well and are allowing the Gov to shut down and are standing firm on the campaign to de-fund Obama care

From the outside looking in, this is clearly a no brainer for the president and the senate. THE PEOPLE DON’T WANT OBAMA CARE. Yet for some reason the people are being ignored. Maybe they think we aren’t capable of thinking for ourselves. Maybe its some giant conspiracy for the gov to control its citizens, or even to fill the money bags of those top politicians and ceos.
Regardless of what motives are behind such blatant disregard of the citizens wishes the people will only tolerate this for so much longer and then things will begin to escalate.
Here are some reasons why people are so opposed to Obama care:
Businesses are firing people and cutting hours, so they are not required by law to pay for the health care.
Less jobs and Less hours working = less money in the pockets of the consumer.
Consumers not consuming = stagnant economy.
Regardless of if you decide to sign up for Obama care or not… you will be taxed for it.
All citizens will be required to pay for Obama care… except those who are exempt…. like congress. I find it weird how they expect the people to change their health care and pay the fees (taxes) while the ones who make the decisions are not required to (aka senators, the president, house representatives, whoever else they don’t want to be included in the bullshit).
Restaurants in Nancy Pelosi’s district are also exempt… interesting.
See for yourself.
Not to mention Obama’s entire presidential term is up for question because of how many times he did not tell the facts about his healthcare act on purpose. (lies)
Here are just a few tiny lies on the health care reform act. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Wv8t_C3VdE
Just in case you missed it… here is what will be effected by the gov shut down.
Personally, I don’t care how long the gov is shut down. Keep it closed until they decide to flush this bill down the toilet with the rest of the shit where it belongs. It’s clear cut that the people don’t want “the affordable care act” and the guys in Washington need to pull the wax out of their ears or there heads out of their ass.
Sorry, not sorry.
