#1 is poison pill. They tried to defund, now delay.
#2 is just a way to have a talking point. It's like having a bill saying that we're going to throw toxic waste into the drinking water and also attaching a violence against kittens act. Then when people vote against it and they say they don't want toxic waste in the drinking water the others scream, "WHY ARE SUPPORTING KITTEN VIOLENCE!"
You mean like this:
"This Republican shutdown did not have to happen. But I want every American to understand why it did happen," Obama said during remarks in the Rose Garden. "They've shut down the government over an ideological crusade to deny affordable health insurance to millions of Americans." (NBC News)
Are we really supposed to think that Republicans hate poor people so much that they will block any effort to give health insurance to the poor? If that's what the Dems are selling, and there's a legitimate chance that the American poeple are buying it, we need to scrap the healthcare law and pour all of that money into education immediately.
