The GOP toys with disaster

Well, they hate Obamacare. Yes they do. These Republicans hate it so much they cannot hate it more. They hate it so much they will stand up blabbing for 21 hours just to emphasize the point, that they really, really hate Obamacare. They hate it so much they threaten to hold hands and jump off the fiscal cliff — shut down the government of the United States, refuse to raise the debt limit, not borrow another nickel without concessions. This may throw the nation into economic ruin, but tough beans, because we hate Obamacare.

And by the way, they want President Obama to negotiate. What, exactly? Help us eviscerate your prized legislative accomplishment or we’ll intentionally throw the economy into a pit? A White House adviser said, “It’s not a negotiation if I show up at your house and say, ‘Give me everything inside or I’m going to burn it down.’ ” The House Republicans say they will play ball on the debt ceiling if the president agrees to their demands, the laundry list, including suspending Obamacare, building oil pipelines, ditching banking reforms and environmental regulations, malpractice reform, etc. The president says he will not negotiate over the credit of the United States.
