A substantial number of voters, as expressed through their representatives, do not like how Obamacare was done.

Regardless, it's the law,

who cares if its the law - laws get changed all of the time - why is you think this law is some how special and can never be changed?

democrats are always trying to change our gun laws and I am sure you are good with that - so whats the difference? Republicans and many americans want changes to the ACA

and people are signing up. Also, how much of that opposition is based on right-wing lies, and how much is based on people wanting single payer or a public option.

An even higher percentage are asking why the government continues to raid their retirement funds at an ever increasing rate, to pay for the present.

The government is borrowing from the social security trust fund and issuing treasuries to secure that debt. There's no more secure paper than a US treasury. The irony is that if the Tea Party gets its way and fails to raise the debt ceiling, that may cease to be true.

The debt ceiling is a good reminder that the US is spending far more money than it takes in.

OK. Let's reduce spending judiciously and increase revenues, but let's not default of the obligations that we have already incurred.
