    Tell Michelle Bachmann to go home and never show her face to us again. Her state should be ashamed to elect someone like her. Also, it would help to explain Obamacare to your audiences (a lot more than token attention you give to this matter) instead of giving countless minutes, hours and days to opinions not worth a dime like hers and Ted Cruz. After all Obamacare is everyone's program. It will help everyone. All I know, it doesn't go far enough to take healthcare out of the hands of insurance companies.

    Delaying or messing with anything about healthcare is a nonstarter!!!!! Y'all Lost, Lost, Lost the Election which was a referendum on Healthcare. Republicans were there from day 1 denying it, it still passed house and senate and Supreme Court. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, MAJORITY VOTED PRESIDENT OBAMA BACK INTO WHITEHOUSE KNOWING WHAT HE DONE TO HEALTHCARE. After loosing the game you can't just take the ball and refuse for future games to proceed. They are trying to destroy healthcare by delaying it, because they know pools are key to success. Ohh, we will let you play but we are taking the ball....REALLY, REALLY!!! They are like little kids all the time.....Get out the way if your not trying to make life better for people

    our troops risk their lives everyday in iraq and afghanistan yet they will see their paychecks delayed. a law should be passed to also delay politicians pay when they can't reach agreements by deadlines. they've had enough time to sort this out!

    Calm down, Michelle. Now that Obamacare is coming in, you can swap your insurance for one of the exchange policies and finally get some help for your mental health problems that are clearly getting worse with timr.

    I saw this Situation Room episode on Friday, September 27, 2013. I thought the presentation was very pathetic. Both Wolf Blitzer and Rep. Bachmann were rude to each other. He would ask her a question, and she apparently was not answering what he needed to know. Then, instead of letting her finish what she was saying, he rudely kept on badgering her. To make matters worse, Blitzer talked to another congressman afterward and the same type of situation...Blitzer just does not let the guest finish saying what he is talking about before he interrupts the guest. I am surprised that you people allow a commentator to allow himself and CNN both to look bad because of ill manners.

    I have a friend whom is a federal government employee, working at significant medical facility in Europe. Americans, like my friend, do more than work for the government, they serve the United States Department of Defense as a civilian employee overseas in direct support of the Armed Forces in guiding healthcare for the only military medical center in Europe serving Wounded Warriors, Soldiers and their families within all of Europe and those from Africa and the Middle East. Because our elected officials are more concerned about their votes, he will not be paid, will be furloughed and told not to come to work. His facility has lost 10 of 35 clinical pharmacists in one month because they left federal service due to of this type of treatment. I cannot overstate the effect this type of action has on those whom we serve in an overseas theater.

    It is time for Congress to stop acting like immature children and to STOP EMBARRASSING AMERICA. It's time we take back our country.

    Every member of Congress should have their compensation reduced by 75 percent and the only way to regain it is by the merit system managed by American citizens, including all the military civilian workers overseas, whom are our ambassadors to the world.

    I am embarrassed to be an American, and this has to STOP!

    Democrats are tired of bailing out the Republicans, the last three times the Democrats have had to be the grown ups and put America first Nomatter how hard the poison pill. Well, there comes a time when you have to stop cuddling the baby and they have to mature enough to suffer their own consequences. It's either they Love America too or we all have to suffer their Selfish harm of America which their voters have helped to bring to pass. OBAMACARE IS THE LAW GOTDAMMIT!!!! SORE LOSERS GET A LIFE, MANUP AND LEARN HOW TO WIN ELECTIONS SO MORE OF UR PRIORITIES CAN BE IMPLEMENTED!! This isn't a third world country where you take on Coop actions to get your way.
