Re: But when Obama says this, it's okay?

'I will not give in to their demands', which in truth are the demands of the people who elected those very representatives.

The people don't want the ACA defunded or repealed, by a substantial majority.

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

A substantial number, but a minority (around 1/3).

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

Which is a debate we should be having while continuing to operate.  And the repubs don't get that either - the big difference between now and before is revenue, not spending.  Spending is about at the long term average, while revenue is 4-5% of GDP (which is 25% of revenue) below the long-term average.
