Something that, in 2013, was supposed to stop the delay of Obamacare, just so that the Obama Administration could turn around and keep delaying parts of it later.
Progressives and Democrats wailed about the partial government shutdown -- name-calling the Republicans "extremists" and "domestic terrorists" -- but have no problem with Obama delaying parts of Obamacare now -- which is exactly what the argument surrounding the government shutdown was about in the first place. Hypocrites!

When a bunch of inbred ivy leaguers forget that their job is to run a country and maintain stability and think that anyone actually gives a shit about their infantile sound and fury over budget cuts which will have about as much effect on the national debt as taking a piss in the ocean.
