President Obama Told Republicans in Congress He Won't Negotiate Obamacare

By Wadner Pierre

Speaking  at the 43rd Annual Congressional Black Caucus Phoenix Awards Dinner, President Obama urged America to pay its debt and to fund his landmark signature, the Affordable Care Act know as Obamacare. The U.S. Supreme  last year upheld the Affordable Care Act and made it the law of the land.

 He said, “You'd be willing to shut down the government and potentially default for the first time in United States history because it bothers you so much that we're actually going to make sure that everybody has affordable health care. Let me say as clearly as I can: It is not going to happen.”

Conservative Republicans/Tea Party, vow to fight to defund Obamacare. Moderate republicans see this battle as a threat for their struggling party, and  could put the GOP at risk in the 2014 and 2016 presidential elections failing to avoid the shurtdown the government.

President has said Obamacare will allow millions of uninsured Americans to buy health care, but others have said Obamacare will hurt some by making them paying more for their premium.
