Could a government shutdown on Oct. 1 delay the rollout of Obamacare's new health-insurance exchanges? Not a chance, says a White House official.

There are too many positives in regard to Obamacare and the repuglicans know it - this is yet another obscene effort to create extremism on both sides - and it works! I hope though, that in the next elections the extremists will be finally voted out of office!

The American people want universal, single-payer health care, #MedicareForAll. That being said, however, the Affordable Care Act is a step in that direction. However, while much of the teabaggerish outrage from the rightwingers focuses on the ACA, everyone needs to keep an eye open to ensure that this isn't a false front for other extremist austerity cuts. The Republicans can't stop the ACA at this point, but keeping us all looking at that issue...they may try to slash even more funding from survival assistance programs.

It would be so nice if the rabid Right would stop fighting the Health Care Plan and figure out what needs to be tweaked to make it better. But that's just a fantasy of mine. Thanks for the article, Cal.

And still no public option. Still no single payer. Still no universal care. Still a for profit system with a mandate to make more insane profits off suffering poor.

Is there anyone here besides myself who remembers the pre-Reagan Republican party when you didn't have to lose 50 IQ points to belong and didn't have to accept lies as truth and facts as lies.

From outside the US, the teabaggers and republ-can'ts are truly bizarre.

I listened to a very small part of Ted Cruz's senseless ramblings and lies during his Obamacare fauxbuster. (any more and I would have needed a barf bag!) Everything I heard at the time was lies, including a reference to the IRS being the agency that will make decisions on the care a person gets, . . . you know, those so called death panels, yet again. I just shook my head in total disgust!

It would be great if Americans could enjoy universal healthcare, and that is my fervent wish for them. But when Obamacare was being drafted, the move from a total for profit system to a universal system would have be too much for legislators to wrap their tiny brains around. However, the government was able to get the ACA passed in 2010 with bipartisan support. Even with that, the current crop of Republicanus/Teabaggers have no use for the ACA because it is more people oriented, and let's face it, their mantra is profits for their corporate cronies before the people they are supposed to represent. This should be a stepping stone to universal care providing that the Republicanus/Teabaggers are permanently retired to the unemployment line.

@ Dale O --- I agree, but are our Conservatives any better?

Not by much Lynn Squance, but Harper knows better than to mess with green eggs and ham and keep his mitt romney's off of our universal health care. There is an item on Care2 for the uses of left over bubble wrap...I can see wadding it up into a ball and then inserting it into Ted Cruz's yap before he opens it in his next faux filibuster...or for Stephen Harper endlessly pontificating on con-servatism. As bad as Hapless Harper is - Ted Cruz and his wingnuts are even worse.

Here is something applicable to them both...

The ACA is the best thing to happen in a long time. It's about time this Country "caught-up" with the rest of the developed Countries.
