Death, Taxes and Liberal Outrage
The inevitable result of last weeks showdown over Obamacare has culminated in the predictable shutdown of government. All this over the launch of something that seems to be performing about the same as any other government conceived and implemented program.
Surprise! Obamacare health insurance exchange websites don’t work; HealthCare.gov a total mess
Like no one could see that coming.
You'd think with all the teeth gnashing and hand wringing that Obama, congress and the senate would be looking at draconian cuts in their pay and benefits, Aw who am I kidding,like Obamacare, they've made themselves pretty much exempt from the effects of a government shutdown.
They will suffer though, having to push their own elevator buttons and all.
You can find a list of things that will effect the taxpayer here however.
10 Effects of a Federal Government Shutdown
Which is kind of interesting because the ones who'll feel any real effects from a government shutdown will be the citizens who vote.
We seem to be the only ones who have skin in the game, politicians not so much, so where is their incentive to negotiate?
We've arrived at this point over a healthcare law nobody wants and is a dismal failure the first day out.
Who should really be outraged?
