You haven't been paying attention. The issue is the House Republicans threatening to do harm to the country to get what they want. Whatever that is at the moment. It is hostage taking. It is extortion.

its not "hostage taking" its wanting changes made to a law

Changes for which they don't have the votes, nor are they close to it.  Changes the President has the right to veto, and the Repubs couldn't override.  Changes the Repubs, lacking the votes to make them, are now trying to make through extortion, plain and simple.

this is nothing unusual changes are made to laws every day - the republicans were totally locked out when this law was passed - they were not allowed any input at all and none of them supported what was passed.

And they were locked out because the Dems did have the votes.

the left stood on the necks of the republicans and told them f-you

They had every right to - they were elected by the people.

well guess what - the American people voted in enough republicans after that happened so that it wouldnt happen again and now the republicans want their input

The Dems no longer have a filibuster-proof majority, but the Repubs don't have a veto-proof majority either, nor are they anywhere close to it.

the left, by not allowing the republicans any input on obamacare did this to themselves.

No, the people voted the Dems that many votes.

and you people on the left some how thought things would change if Obama won reelection, you actually thought the only thing republicans cared about was defeating Obama in the last election and that if he won they republicans would just cave to obama and abandon the principals and ideas that they ran on

No, we knew the Repubs would have no morals or ethics after the election, just as before.
