President Obama is still trying to work with the Reichwingers, hence his attempt at reconcilliation, However, the Reich is a hatefilled mob of racist morons, and reconcilliation is no more possible with them than it is to bargain with a snake.

Obama and REID forced the shutdown because they adamantly refused to negotiate what now should have occurred,a delay in the individual mandate part of ACA. That was the most recent open refusal to reconciliate. I think they were and are the snakes fostering division!

Karl, you need to quit drinking the kool-aide!!! The Republicans DID NOT want to negotiate.........it was destroy the ACA or nothing. What good would it have done to delay the individual mandate just to have the Congressional Republicans attempt to vote more times to rescind the law.

Doesn't need any outside agency to destroy it. It appears to be more self destructing with each passing day!

The purpose of the ACA was to provide health insurance to as many Americans as possible. In the first month it did that for 502,000 Americans - 106,000 received private insurance and 396,000 received Medicaid. Another 975,000 have confirmed their eligibility for health insurance under ACA but have not yet selected a policy.
That was accomplished despite Repug's filling the airways with lies to spread fear and loathing about ACA and the fascist Governors of 26 Red states refusing to support their own websites or expand Medicaid.
The ACA got off to a bad start but all the cancellations are a smoke screen from Big Insurance - they KNEW the crap policies they were writing would be invalidated by ACA for the past THREE YEARS. Yet they kept writing them to defraud their customers, knowing they'd never have to provide any services for the premiums they collected. Now the GOPers are ranting that those fruadulant policies should be continued so their Uberrich Masters can continue to collect money from them.
It is obvious the only solution is to eliminate the GOPers from office at every level. Until then the GOP will continue to win the Class War they started in 1980.
