Members of Congress should not undermine the U.S. government

United States Congressmen should not threaten the existence of the United States government simply because those Congressmen do not like a program. It is the height of fiscal irresponsibility for a Congress to threaten to not pay debts that it has incurred because it does not like a program that it has created. Voters should pay closer attention to the behavior of their elected officials and ask themselves whether those officials really represent them, of if those officials are instead paid-for hires of immoral billionaires who spend their time shoving cocaine up their nostrils.

members of our government and the private-sector exempted should participate in this convoluted social tax program that they gleefully rammed down the throats of the american taxpayer. like a cheap sweater, this boondoggle is unravelling right in front of them and the american people. it is just sad to see how many people are deluding themselves into thinking failure is success and not facing the fact that this program is unworkable and will not perform as advertised. it started out as a lie and the lie continues to create many who will need treatment for their severe cases of blind idolatry and denial.

Average employer health care costs will raise 6% in 2014 a and 3% of that is directly attributable to Obamacare due to new fees and mandated coverage. The increase would be closer to 10% if employers weren’t shifting costs to employees due to the unknown of Obamacare. Liberals and Unions are lining up to be exempted from Obamacare so it can’t be all it is cracked up to be. Obamacare totally changes health care to in order to cover 5-7% of the population who did not want to pay for it or could not get it. This is called cutting of the head to save the body.

Companies are no longer offering healthcare insurance and are telling employees to go to exchanges to fend for themselves. Granted, companies are for the most part giving them a healthcare allowance to do that but they are no longer providing healthcare coverage guidance. The mandated “preventative care” coverage options which now have to be included in every plan are raising coverage prices for all. Part time workers are having their hours cut to keep them under the “fulltime” status mark so employers don’t have to provide insurance. These same employees will be mandated to buy their own, on their own. The youngest people who can least afford to pay insurance will now be forced to pay the "most" for insurance as mandated by the gov’t.

thegreek, What makes Obamacare so bad anyway? I hear a lot of Republicans harping about it, but almost none of the criticism makes any sense. If anything, Obamacare is not far enough to the left and much more should be done to improve healthcare in this country. Isn't it sad that we pay almost three times the cost for treatment in this country than the average cost of the same medicines and procedures in other countries?

BeRight, Actually, raising the debt limit simply means that Congress will ensure it pays the debts it has already incurred. It always amazes me how many people believe Republicans who say that the President has run up the debt when it is Congress that controls the purse strings. For Congress to say it will not raise the debt limit is essentially to say that they refuse to pay for the debts they have already incurred. It is foolishness.

You must be talking about Obamacare, you know, that program that the Dems passed without a singe vote for the Good guys and the one that the Democrats were forced to bribe members of their own party for votes and the one that was passed with parliamentary tricks of the trade?

Immoral Billionaires? You talking about Gates, Buffet, Carlos Slim?

Everytime we raise the debt limit, that gives Obama the green light to spend more.
