SENATE SHOOTS DOWN LATEST OBAMACARE AMENDMENT DEAL FROM HOUSE

BRAD MERRIMAN – JOURNALIST – TACD NEWS – As of 12:01am Tuesday October 1st, the American government experienced the first government shutdown in 17 years.  Back then it was Newt Gingrich, now it is John Boehner who leads the house Republicans into this political gridlock.  Monday, moderate house Republicans and tea party patriots got together to try and buck the Republican leadership, to no avail.

Day 1 of the government shutdown has produced no real progress as of yet.  The 4th deal was shot down in the past hour from Senate Democrats.  This deal included the Affordable Care Act provisions that have been the main sticking point behind this stalemate.  The main provisions of the ACA took effect today, House Republicans seemed almost obsessed about implementing a one year delay on the ACA. Senator Harry Reid described the latest deal as “extortion” by the Republicans trying to to force concessions to the ACA.         “It’s time for Republicans to stop obsessing over old battles.” Reid said, referring to the latest spending plan.
