This tweet sums it up:

In spite of this, Obama, Reid and Pelosi will continue to blame the Tea Party wing of the GOP for not cooperating with the “mainstream” members of Congress, such as Democrats Harry Reid and John McCain:

Democratic leaders in the Senate are rejecting an offer by Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) to end the budget impasse, arguing it asks for too much in return for too little, senators and aides tell POLITICO.

The development comes on the same day that the Senate voted 53-45 to block a Democratic bill that would raise the debt ceiling through 2014 without any spending cuts or changes to Obamacare.

The Collins plan, which was drafted with input from West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin (D) and other senators, called for a six-month extension of government funding and a debt limit increase through January. But it asked for a delay in Obamacare’s medical device tax for two years and a requirement for income verification for Obamacare subsidies.

If the Democrats want to retain full and complete ownership of Obamacare, Republicans should be thrilled. Frankly I’m a little surprised the Dems don’t allow the Republicans to make changes to Obamacare just so they can blame them for the inevitable disaster later on (the MSM would happily run with that).

Conversely, I can’t understand why the GOP is insisting on putting any fingerprints on the train wreck that is the ACA — all for the privilege of letting the Democrats raise the debt ceiling?
