John McCain is circling the proverbial wagon on behalf of his fellow RHINOs and other Democrats and blocking any Senate Debate on ObamaCare.

Why is this? Why don’t they want a reasonable debate on such a potentially harmful new law that threatens the well being of so many Americans?

Because we already heard the debate on Obamacare, then they passed a law, the SCOTUS said it was constitutional, then we had another election which resulted in Obama winning and the Senate still with a democrat majority.
Losing those elections and then demanding a do over is kind of weird.

    There is no point in debating a law already on the books that the Republicans do not have the votes to change. That is what elections are for. If the Republicans win both houses and the White House, they can do what they please.

    No. Most politicians don’t care about America or anything but getting reelected. You can be damn sure if the Democrats approval ratings dipped so low, they’d be caving so quickly to ensure as many votes as possible.

    The Tea Party, like ‘em or not, knows they’re a minority fighting for what they believe is right and isn’t going to let public opinion talk them into burying the country in ACA destruction.

    I’m not a fan of the Tea Party, but they are the only ones fighting for the future of the country in the case of the ACA.

    Because the debate ended in 2010.
    Tea party refused to talk then, the ACA was a compromise with The GOP.

    We’ve been debating it for years now. We even took it all the way to the Supreme Court. Republicans are insane for constantly trying to refight this and expect different results.

    It would be nice if Republicans were interested in actually fixing the problems they see with the Affordable Care Act instead of demanding an all or nothing approach to it.

    It was debated for almost 2 years already.
    And it was voted on and passed by both Houses of Congress prior to being signed into law by our President. You know the normal method of creating new laws in the US.
    Not to mention being reviewed by our Supreme Court.

    We do not "debate" laws that are already on the books here in America (BTW, if you didn’t know that because you are new here, then "Welcome!")….when we do not like a law we lobby Congress until someone proposes changes to that law (or abolition of it), and after debate (which may last a number of years), the Speaker brings the issue to the floor for a vote…

    You should perhaps study the early history of Medicare…..many of EXACTLY the same things were said before & after its enactment in 1965, inclufing dire predictions of how it would crash our economy by 1968….but we seem still to be here!

    The time for debate was when the law was being crafted,or maybe before those 41 senseless votes by the House to repeal it. Time is up now for debates on the ACA.

    The ACA is LAW .The ACA was been approved by the SC . Obama campaign on the importance of ACA and the majority of Americans voted him into office .

    Reasonable debate ?? Cons have forced the government shutdown and now are threatening to blow up the economy if the ACA is not defunded something that has NEVER happened in the country’s history and you come into this public forum and vomit your desire to have a "reasonable debate" .

    To show just how stupid , ignorant and dangerous these cons are, the Dems should now demand that every law passed by Congress under Republican presidents be now put on the table with the ACA for debate .

    Just go away,far away

    Republicans election campaigns were based on repealing Obamacare, They lost end of story. The ACA is the law of the land, upheld by SCOTUS.

    These arguments, and the shutdown are just tantrums because the GOP has lost the elections, lost the popular vote, and doesn’t want to use normal channels of government to present their views.
