Obama: Republicans Willing To Send US Into Recession To Block Obamacare

President Obama said conservative Republicans are willing to send America into a recession to stop ObamaCare as Washington is locked in another budget crisis.

With federal funds set to run out on Oct. 1, House Republicans passed legislation Friday to keep the government up and running, but defunded the Affordable Care Act. They have also threatened to tie a repeal of the law to legislation lifting the debt ceiling, which will need to be raised by mid-October.

    Where's Keystone Obama? You like talking about jobs, but you don't actually give a damn about anybodies job, but your own.

    We'd go UP to a recession from a depression? Awesome!

    Yep, it could bring us out of the Blah Depression!

    If Obama doesn't care if it tanks the economy of the whole friggin world, why should I? Not that it works that way, but I'd rather be stinking poor free man than a rich slave.

    "President Obama said conservative Republicans are willing to send America into a recession to stop ObamaCare..."

    Let's say this is true, that they ARE, in fact, willing to send America into a recession to stop ObamaCare... doesn't that just PROVE how much ObamaCare sucks?
