What the Mainstream Media Won’t Tell You about Democrats’ Refusal to Compromise

The House offered to fund Obamacare if Congress would delay the individual mandate and accept to live under Obamacare just like the rest of the American people.  The Senate Democrats refused to compromise!

Time Line of Continuing Resolution Debate:

Friday, 9/20/13 – The House of Representatives passed a Continuing Resolution that would fully fund the government (including things that Republicans don’t like) while at the same time defunding Obamacare.

Friday, 9/27/13 – The Senate stripped the defunding language out of the House passed Continuing Resolution and sent it back to the House.
Result: Harry Reid and Senate Democrats refused to compromise.

Saturday, 9/28/13 – The House of Representatives added two amendments to the Senate revised Continuing Resolution to delay Obamacare for one year (far from what we were originally willing to agree to) and repeal the medical device tax.
