The GOP propaganda machine is operating at full capacity right now trying to blame the Democratic Party for shutting down the government.
Why? Because the Democratic Party won't negotiate with Republicans on legislation that has already been approved by Congress, signed by the President and reviewed by the United States Supreme Court. A majority of those USSC Justices determined the ACA met all Constitutional requirements to make it the law of the land.
If the majority of Americans don't like the ACA they can simply vote for the GOP in 2014. Of course, the American public had that same opportunity in 2012 and the majority of them chose to vote for the Democratic Party instead.
Today, Republicans' callous actions are jeopardizing the nation's credit rating and economic well being. The American public and national media should hold the GOP solely responsible for this reckless attempt to hold our nation as a political hostage.
Immigration law is "law of the land" too...love how liberals pick and choose. Think of it more of a "if we're defunding this part and making it a failure...why stop there".
