The Republicans shut down the government with a goal to defund Obamacare. True! Tea Party Reps. Michele Bachmann and Marsha Blackburn went on the Fox "entertainment" channel laughing it up and saying they've never seen House members so happy and spirited. Fox hosts joke that the sky didn't fall after all, as Democrats forecasted, and began naming jobs that were cut as a result. Jobs, at a time we need more of them, not less ...
How do Fox hosts keep their jobs? Unknown!
Then Republicans change their tune, which was caught on video. Sen. Mitch McConnell and Sen. Rand Paul discuss using the phrase "defund Obamacare" during interviews because it's not polling well!
Fact! Obamacare was negotiated for 13 months and passed into law back in 2010 and passed the U.S. Supreme Court.
Obamacare is not open to renegotiate almost four years later, because it's law.
