The ACA was made law in 2010. Congress has had a lot of time to negotiate changes, defund it, repeal it. Is it really worth shutting down the entire government over it???

Our government is so overgrown, bloated, redundant, and wasteful, I wish they would shutter half of it and never reopen that half.....just to give us a fighting chance of surviving with our constitutional rights intact.800,000 non-essential gov jobs?

Doesn't that alone open our eyes to the fact this gov is waaaayy too big? Everything they run turns to wasteful shiit.

NTV, but that doesn't answer the question. I agree with much you say (though I believe there are many good government programs), but that's unrelated to the question in a practical, right now, kind of way.

I understand letting Obamacare implode on it's own sounds great, but I think that will rake a term that will have us firmly entrenched in it's problems by then.

In the interests of brevity Drew, I think you understand what I mean. I guess I could have said "all non-essential government functions" or something. Of course, even that is a bit of editorializing....for example, I don't consider WIC to
