The GOP/Tea Party will not allow Obama to move on. They are enjoying this whole thing even though they have NO plan for health care for everyone. They got theirs and never mind everyone else. Rather than "assist" in helping they do out of their way to hinder.

barbjens, Obama is a failure and yes were enjoying this. Obamacare will fold under its own weight. If Obamas true mission was to get those who didnt have healthcare and preexisting condition folks insurance, he could have created the exchange for them, given them subsidies and left the 70% of us who were happy alone. That is over he ruined our healthcare now we all get to watch this thing tank.

The Republicans did help they read the bill and warned America for three years what was in it. The Dems called them obstructionists and liars. Now EVERYTHING the Repubs predicted has come to pass amd then some. How can you blame Republicans when your own President LIED to you about keeping your own policy, keeping your doctors and hospitals and that cost would be substanially lower. He misled you on the subsidies now we know only a fraction of Americans will get them. The Dems have accused the Repubs of shutting down the government to avoid this disaster, so why don't the Dems ASK Repubilcans to participate?

Eric Cantor passed out to fellow teapublicans talking points to use to derail ACA. This came from his own WHIP committee. Walker in Wisconsin has the teapublican version of health care reform. Cut off the poor.

Government control of health care=unmitigated disaster owned wholly by the Democrats.

Why is not the administration along with congress focusing on the budget, economy, deficit spending, and the debt?

while the conservatives continue to attack the ACA, hundreds of thousands of people across the country are getting insurance on the exchanges. And this is their worst nightmare.

"hundreds of thousands of people across the country are getting insurance on the exchanges."...it was supposed to be millions not hundreds of thousands though. I guess if you set the bar at 6 people on the first day though you have the a great baseline for underachievement.
