Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), chair of the House Budget Committee, told conservative talk radio host Charlie Sykes Monday morning that House Republicans had demanded a one-year delay in Obamacare’s individual mandate, along with an end to congressional exemptions, while offering a six-week debt ceiling hike to allow room for negotiations on broader budget issues. The offer was made to President Barack Obama last Thursday.
You don’t “demand” things from people when doing business. You make an offer of what you are willing to accept, and then you stick with it. Obama can’t fund the government without the consent of Congressional Republicans. Apparently the Republicans agreed to fund Obamacare, so both parties deserve to be booted.
We are dealing with a bunch of useless impetuous two year olds on both sides of the aisle.
