Is president guilty of what he accuses Republicans of?

As the controversy over the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act commonly called Obamacare continues, President Barack Obama has placed all responsibility for a potential government shutdown on Republicans.

Is our president guilty of what he accuses Republicans of?

The great divide between Democrats and Republicans is the funding over ObamaCare, not the issue of shutting down government. No one wants to do that.

Ironically, Republicans in the Senate, even fiscal conservatives like Sen. Mike Lee (Utah) have said they will agree to funding everything, even some things they don't agree with, if the president will agree to the defunding of the healthcare bill.

You'd think the least that could be done would be a delay of the individual mandate. Everyone, even the rather addled congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), knows the regulations are a nightmare, the bill has already been defunded by Democrats who have repealed various provisions, and more revenue has been lost by the more than 1,000 waivers issued to corporations, labor unions and other groups.

Furthermore, the bill exempts illegal alien workers, giving them yet another advantage over American citizens.

Democrats even joined in exempting Capitol Hill staffers and appointees from the president's so-called signature bill.

Dems know they passed the bill too quickly. They know the regulations are insane. They know the bill's provisions will cost middle class and upper lower class workers even more for their insurance, and they know the quality of care will be reduced because healthcare facilities will now spend money on bureaucratic regulations. That money has to come from somewhere.

Our president's fellow party members have resorted to name calling, acting like schoolyard juveniles over a bill they know is near-fatally flawed.

Seems to me the president is guilty of the charges he is leveling at Republicans who actually are acting in the best interests of all Americans, even those who vote a straight up Dem ticket.

Obamacare is not real healthcare reform. When it is fully implemented, all Americans except the political class will see exactly what that means.

This President's policy and agenda has been to blame others for his or take credit for their actions. Or in other words lie. I am just embarrassed that there are so many people who either do not or want to care until it is too late. Keep up the fight Kay you are doing a wonderful service for your country by informing us of what is going on behind the veil.
