Obama: “I Shouldn’t Have to Offer Anything”

And — if — if we — Steve, when you say, “What can I offer?” — I shouldn’t have to offer anything. — President Barack Obama, on the eve of government shutdown, September 30, 2013

In an interview Monday with NPR’s Steve Inskeep, President Obama expressed his obstinacy and unwillingness to do what is best for the American people.  He feels as though he shouldn’t have to offer anything to protect America from Obamacare.

Sadly the Left just won’t come to terms with Obamacare’s failures or its broad unpopularity.  White House Press Secretary Jay Carney is obviously no exception to that rule.  But his defense of President Obama and Obamacare is weak and frankly embarrassing for the Left:

When pressed on the President’s lack of leadership, Carney responded:

Chris, they don’t like the Affordable Care Act and they ought to try to change it any way they can or repeal it any way they can.  And in fact in the House, now they’ve done that 42 times. 

In its most recent battle on Obamacare, the House passed a number of bills to fund the government but defund or delay Obamacare, giving Americans the same breaks from Obamacare Mr. Obama has given to his friends and cronies.

Unfortunately, Mr. Obama, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV)Heritage ActionScorecardSen. Harry Reid11%Senate Democrat AverageSee Full Scorecard11%, and many in the Senate won’t cooperate.

Mr. Obama wants to conflate funding the government with funding Obamacare, but they are two separate things:

As we talk, Mr. President, we’re on a day when, obviously, a shutdown is looming. You said earlier that you were going to be talking to the leaders. Did you mean Republican leaders? And if so, which ones?

Well, I’m going to be talking to all of them. And we still have a window, there’s still an opportunity during the course of this day, to avert a shutdown and make sure that we are paying our bills.

What can you offer?

And — if — if we — Steve, when you say, “What can I offer?” — I shouldn’t have to offer anything. They’re not doing me a favor by paying for things that they have already approved for the government to do. That’s part of their basic function of government; that’s not doing me a favor. That’s doing what the American people sent them here to do, carrying out their responsibilities.

He continued with campaign-style rhetoric and some finger pointing to place the blame on Republicans, rather than on Sen. Reid and the Senate where it belongs:

I have said consistently that I am always happy to talk to Republicans and Democrats about how we shape a budget that is investing in things like early-childhood education, rebuilding our roads and bridges and putting people back to work, growing our economy, making sure that we’ve got the research and development we need to stay at the cutting edge and that deals with some of our long-term debt issues. But we’re not going to accomplish those things if one party to this conversation says that the only way that they come to the table is if they get 100 percent of what they want, and if they don’t, they threaten to burn down the house. That’s not a negotiation.

Has the President seen the latest CNN poll indicating that less than 1 in 5 Americans say their families will be better off under Obamacare?  He should read it.  But here are some key findings:

According to the poll, four in 10 say the new law will make their families worse off, while 41% believe it will have no effect.

Seventeen percent think the measure will be a good thing for themselves or their families.

The poll’s release comes on the same day as a key element of the health care law takes effect, as Americans without insurance can begin enrolling in state insurance exchanges.

As the exchanges open for business, 52% say the health insurance system created by Obamacare is a disaster waiting to happen, with 45% saying the system will eventually work.

The House is acting on the wishes of the American people to stop Obamacare.  When will the Left come to terms with the truth and stop Obamacare?

    he absolutly doesn’t care about anyone in this country, this is the proof

    • Toastertreat

      There is no room in his heart for caring about people. It’s full to the brim with communist ideology. He is a soulless demon and his day will come.

      • renee Deshane

        Oh, he’ll care alright as soon as we get him and his boss on the exchanges just like the rest of the American people. They cannot get away with making laws for the rest of us, while excluding their own selves, and their families, and their staffs, and their pets, etc, etc.

    Tell Jay Carney his eyebrows will stay in that position forever, the longer he lies about the President!
    Also, if you know anything about body language and facial expression, Jay can’t hide a lie if he put it in Hoffa’s grave.
    His press conferences are nothing, if not entertaining!

    • LegalGunTotingPatriot

      He doesn’t need to hide any of his lies. The propaganda media does that for him. And all those people who vote for Barry and his goons are dead … either in brain-power or in reality.

    • GinnyLee

      Yes! Those eyebrows are always an inverted V… and you never see his teeth – they’re hidden in the “ouch” expression that his mouth wears.

  • bahndon

    The president and dirty Harry never compromise it is obama’s way or nothing !!!!

    Amazing that the Senate thinks they don’t have to do any negotiations with the House. What bully’s they are being. I sure hope the House doesn’t cave in like the Senate is trying to get them to do. The House came back with many alternative options and the Senate would not even consider it. What a joke. And then the President doesn’t think he has to negotiate either? Another bully.

    • al003

      The House needs to back up to the position of ‘defunding ObamaCare’ and make sure they never move from that position, let Reid swing in the breeze with Obama, and do not make any deal, period. Defund and Abolish…..

  • Dingbat36

    What else can one expect when there is a Cretin at the top of the heap with one of the same as the head of the Senate.

    • Debbie Hogan Tate

      Obama and Michelle both were lawyers but gave up their license to practice. Something about a scandal and the bar asked them to resign is how I think it went. Read this a long while back. Google it!

  • LegalGunTotingPatriot

    I agree this would be embarrassing for the left … but only if they have even one collective working brain cell, which they don’t. Ethics, conscience do not exist amongst this crowd. Hence, they will ridicule and blame real Americans, while their sheeple continue to hold out their hand for the free stuff. Stop feeding the animals!

  • keithbreedlove

    Read what he’s written and look at what he’s done and one can only believe that President Obama does not believe in a vibrant, free market economy. His desire is to “transform” it, to turn it on his head and to make so many people dependent on Government handouts that they will continue to vote for his party of destruction.

  • psc

    The Republicans must hang tough. Sooner or later America will wake up to the machinations of the Democrats and start blaming the government shut down on them and quite rightly so.

  • GinnyLee

    What the secretary forgets [conveniently] is that in 2011 no one knew anything about the real facts of obamacare… all they heard was the lies, mumbling, and stuttering by the elite, shutout, white house and the likes of Pelosi.
    NOW, thousands – including those who actually voted for BO – are finding out the truth in slow, disgusting, increments. And it ain’t pretty.

    • http://inthisdimension.com/ Alexander Scipio

      … even THEN a majority of Americans opposed it..

  • Timothy Thompson

    Again Obama is outside of the loop, only knows how to campaign not lead. This shut down is totally on the Senate Democrats who didn’t read the original bill and forced late in the night to pass this un-American bill in the first place. Let Obama burn in hell for his actions.

    • GinnyLee

      Right. Another reason why “Corney” keeps pushing a “voters win” lie about it…. WHO voted?

    • Billyb

      I agree

  • Sinsonta

    The paid liar continue to lie…no surprise there…Obamacare has giving waivers to their pals & delayed the employer’s mandate AND more important has exempt Congress and their staff and they will get 75% of their healthcare subsidize by we the people. Shamful.

  • http://inthisdimension.com/ Alexander Scipio

    This entire CR discussion – as well as the ealier sequestration discussion and the upcoming Debt Ceiling discussion – is the result of ONE thing: Obama’s budgets not getting even ONE Democrat vote in the past 3 years. We are having ALL Of these discussions BECAUSE Obama & Reid refuse to assemble a passable budget on which they are willing to vote. Had we a budget, the entire CR conversation would not exist. Obamacare is tangential to that. But even tangentially the GOP has not been making the case that it isn’t House Republicans against Obamacare – that they’d happily pass it if the American people supported it. The response of Boehner & McConnell should have been, this entire time, “Look, we’re representing the American People; that’s our job. This isn’t about the Tea Party caucus or the GOP House. Those are just red herrings. This is about representing the citizens of America, a majority of whom at NO time have supported Obamacare. The American people do not want this bill. It’s our job here in the House to represent the People. I thought it was the job of the Senate, too, but Harry Reid seems not to think so. And the president, supposedly the representative of ALL Americans, 60% of whom do not want this law, seems also not to understand this. Too bad. The American people were counting on him.”

    • Debbie Hogan Tate

      WELL SAID!

      so what happens if you throw a party and no one comes, or you have “sign up day” and no one signs up……. no party, no healthcare because no one joins?

  • Joyce Howard

    Obama & Reed lie so much that they do not even think of the truth. It is all about partisan politics for them, so liberal it is almost communism. Bottom line us, if they are talking, they are lying.

    Obama and Reid lie so much they would not know TRUTH if it jump up and punched them in the face! They are who shut the government down, not the House! All because the O thinks he should not have to give anything! When is Obama going to be removed?? We want our country back!

    • Billyb

      AMEN

    carney needs to shut up this guy is just a but boy obama has ruined this countries reputation but that’s ok because he does it remember he does what he wants constitutional or not what a joke

  • disqus_BAvz0LV7zw

    Of course Obama won’t share anything. He is a dictator, won’t recognize a balance of power imposed by the constitution. He wants all the wealth and the power for himself alone.
    This healthcare bill is a very bad and destructive law for majority of the working Americans. How did SCOTUS approved this?
    Perhaps, SC Justice Roberts don’t want to offend president Obama, for fear of being called a RACIST? . I think he had been battling it over, but at the end he approved
    It is tough to be on this position.

  • Poppo

    Carney is just a hired gun hand. He just pulls the trigger when the bit O tells him.

  • al003

    ObamaCare is just the beginning of our fight to keep our FREEDOM. Why do you think Obama selected the IRS to implement ObamaCare? Do you remember when Obama said he was going to create a civilian force larger than our Military who will only answer to him? Well the center of this Civilian Force will be the IRS, they will be the funding and they will do the bidding of Obama in Charge. How did you like the last election? Wait till the IRS is in full bloom as the enforcement arm with all of your medical records, your financial records, your records on your selected Social Media choice. This is just the start of Americas KGB IRS….. Think about it. Bureaucrats who are as different from us as day is to night. Bureaucrats who will be elected by elections run by the American KGB…..
    This is just the beginning of our National Nightmare and our only solution to this mess is for the States to call a Constitutional Convention, per Article V of the Constitution, and in this Convention to strengthen the Constitution in all manners to protect ‘We the People’ from the thieves we elect to public office.
    Maybe the answer is hard term limits on all people elected to Federal Office and some form of restriction on those Communist and Islamists among us. It appears that McCarthy might have been correct clear back at the end of WWII.

    • M H Brown

      That won’t work. If it were possible to call a Constitutional Convention, the DemoNazis would write a new Constitution according to the Hilary-Obama manifesto.

      • al003

        Actually a CC is the only path we have. And the best thing about it is that each State is on equal footing. 2/3 to get the CC and 3/4 to ratify all of the new Constitution. The Conservatives hold most of the States at this time and overall we have the edge in population too… So before the Communists get more power now is the only time we can expect to Right this Ship of State…..
        And just what else do we have — a revolution?? Get real!!

    • forRP

      So the thieves will all get together and write a NEW constitution that protects us from THEM? Seriously?

    • jude2

      It started in the year 1913 with Woodrow Wilson’s presidency. The first was the Sixteenth Amendment, shift of taxes. The 2nd was the Seventeenth Amendment, movement from states’ rights and limited federal power. Election of senators were by popular vote. And the 3rd thing was the creation of the Federal Reserves. Then there is the Supreme Court case, U.S. vs Butler in 1936 under FDR who wanted the government to become even larger. There were many secular presidents through the years but these were the ones who stand out from my readings. So, the Obama regime is just a continuation of what has been happening for a long, long time.

  • llellc

    Dandiangie-you are so right. I don’t know how much more we can take from this charlatan. He tries to look smart, tries to act smart, and with this prompter, tries to talk smart. But, he is NOT smart. Oh yeah, he supposedly was a “star” at Harvard, etc. but I don’t even believe he went there for four years. Anyway, I couldn’t be happier with the gov shutdown. I just wish the elites in DC had to sign up AND USE Obozocare. That would open their little eyes A LOT! But, poor old Harry Reid is still clinging to his Cowboy Poetry.What a joke.

      We have a brain surgeon who makes more sense when he speaks about obamacare than this guy, his name is Ben Carson and he took Obama to task at a prayer session in Washington, DC not the least bit intimidated about tell him off. It was refreshing and Obama was glaring like he was so mad he could kill. Carson got a huge round of applause, wow, You can google if you haven’t seen prayer day with ben carson and Obama.

        I AM VERY AWARE OF DR.CARSON AND HIS OPINION OF OBAMA.

        IS INTELLIGENT AND BLACK. HOWEVER HE DOESN’T CARRY THE WEIGHT OF A LIMBAUGH, HANNITY, OR LEVIN. AS FOR MY
        MAKING SENSE ON OBAMACARE, THAT IS ONLY ONE OF HIS MULTITUDE OF STUPID ACTS. OBVIOUSLY YOU MIGHT RECOGNIZE A DUCK, BUT BLIND TO A MILITANT MUSLIM. IF YOU

        DON’T HAVE TIME.

  • Hugh, Oregon

    I suggest that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) should be named Democare not Obamacare. As we know, the democrats without any bipartisan support passed the ACA, shunting aside all opposition without meaningful negotiations, input or compromise. Using the moniker Obamacare gives cover to all the democrats and their party that brought the ACA into existence. Democare puts the albatross around all their necks and should be used as a cudgel against them at every opportunity.

    • Timothy Thompson

      What a great idea, DEMOCARE!

      And it was born in the senate! The supreme s ruled it another tax. Taxes are supposed to be started in the HOUSE! So how can this continue? The House did not start this or vote on it, SOOOOOO its UNLAWFUL. Needs to be dumped, all of it! ITS against the law plain and simple. HEY HOUSE, get moving on this new tax if you did not approve it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT should be gone, no more debates on it.

  • drthomasedavis

    What in hell an we the people expect from a poorly educated fool from Kenya? Obama is an arrogant, overbearing son of a bitch. A Marxist demagogue supported by lackluster fools, “Jay ‘the sissy boy’ Carney. Until that day we fire the whole damned congress, ‘with a few exceptions’ we will get nothing but lies, runarounds and shillyshallying congress attempts to foist off on their employers as diligent effort to solve our many problems. The very few honest, industrious, knowledgeable few are hamstrung by too many damned idiots like Reid, Pelosi, Schumer, Durbin and their ilk. It s my humble opinion that this nation needs a female hand on the rudder of our ship of State. Let’s Impeach/indict Obama and start over. Obama deserves to be tried for treason and hanged by the neck until DEAD.

    • Bob2002

      Hope you were not thinking of Hillary Clinton when you said, “this nation needs a female hand on the rudder of our ship of state.” She is just like Obama when it comes to being a Marxist demagogue and her chief of staff is a Muslim who is married to that nutcase Anthony Weiner.

      • drthomasedavis

        Hillary is a foul-mouthed, arrogant. disrespectful bitch. No! I was not and would not consider her to hold the office of President. She was in way over her head as a Senator and certainly as Sec of State.

    Hey Donkey: I will break it down for you, your bill or rather your namesake bill is atrocious. The American people don’t want it, it kills jobs, it kills growth, it kills our wonderful healthcare system, and it controls the people. Also you get to keep one-sixth of the economy in a general fund with no checks and balances. I know this is hard to believe, Mr. President, but this isn’t about you….. It is about the American people and we don’t want it, so get back there in your room with leaders from both parties and try to act like a leader and negotiate. We are all watching what YOU do.

    All the more reason for Patriotic citizens to unite and simply, peacefully go to Washington en mass, as a showing of Patriotism, disapproval of the current administration and what they are doing to this great country. If the bikers and the truckers can make a stand for their disapproval of the government as it stands today, then surely the American Patriots can gather forces and do the same. I’m ready to help organize things in my area. Anyone else on board in their areas and states?
    We need to be seen as a collective people, it’s obvious no one is listening to what anyone is saying. Perhaps they need a visual like in primary school.
    Transportation etc. needs to be addressed and this must be an honorable, respectful showing of our complete disrespect and contempt for the current administration.
    If we lose control of ourselves @ any point – OUR point is lost.
    We must be the adults and leaders here, not any angry mob (‘re Democrats, racial mobs etc.) This must be organized precisely and conducted with the utmost civility and honor for our country.

    They keep talking like the majority of American people WANT O’bama Care. It has already been proven that %70 of Americans DO NOT want it!
    Here is my solution. Use the tax records from the IRS. Spend 3 million dollars on a direct mail survey that simply states. “Do you support the current Health care plan with it’s included exemptions, (congress, white house, employer for a year,, while at the same time you are being FORCED to sign up or face a FINE), or would you like to see a new revision where you have a CHOICE to accept the governments will.

  • JPR11

    I think the GOP once again has failed. If I were running the show, I would have rejected the O-care funding once in the House with all the finger pointing to make the point and sent it back to the Senate. They obviously would add it back. O-care will collapse on it’s own. Now the Public focus is on the “GOP”. I agree with all, O is NO leader and all about Politics, not solutions.
    The REAL issue to stand tall on is raising the Debt ceiling FOR THE 8TH TIME. We need to do whatever it takes to get spending down. This is total insanity, $1T annual deficits and nothing to show for it. It is, however, now too late. Can you already hear the cry’s from the Greatest Finger Pointer, THE GOP WILL NOT ALLOW ME TO PAY MY BILLS.. O will claim the deficit has gone down from $1T to $600B due to HIS leadership. I would suggest the Heritage needs to offer some help to the RNC. This is our “Out of Control”

    • RogerMercer

      No, Obamacare won’t collapse on its on. Once people start getting health care at other people’s expense, they will never, ever give it up.

    I have watched This President and Reid saying nasty things to the republican for a long time. I was wondering when the good people in the United States was going to stand up for our rights. WHAT DO THEY MEAN THEY DO NOT HAVE TO MEET WITH THE REPUBLIAN PARTY. The republican party has just as many rights as they do. Why don’t they stop this crazy ness as let us vote for what we want. It was wrong in the vote in the first place. No one read Obamacare and why is all these different places getting waivers. Open your eyes my fellow Americans the governments is supposed to be for the people.
    Please open your eyes our president is destroying our country and out of greed we are letting it happen. I am afraid for my great grandchildren. Ask how much Time Abama in the last five years has spent in the white house helping us and keeping our country strong.

  • Tom Smith

    BO exhibits virtually all of the critical elements delineated in the Hare Psychopathy Checklist. First and foremost, he is a pathological liar, and when caught in a lie, will lie yet again. He is a consummate manipulator, as evidenced in the blind support he has been given by his less-than-literate supporters. He consistently displays an inflated sense of himself, and strives to cultivate a sense of the grandiose in his demeanor; sadly, his marginal verbal skills, and disjunctive delivery undermine that image to the critical listener, but certainly not to the low-information voters. His lackadaisical approach to budget issues show a clear absence of long term goals, and as a result, a complete lack of concern for the American people as a whole. This president was gifted the greatest opportunity of any president in our history: as an African American, he had the opportunity to take a proactive stance regarding family values – particularly in minority communities where the absence of quality values contributes to broken homes, school drop-outs, and high unemployment, and a crime rate that is six times greater – per capita – than others in our society. Instead, he took the lazy man’s way out: Barack Obama is nothing more than an Enabler. He makes excuses for his own poor performance, and that of many persons in our society, then blames others – particularly conservatives – for not throwing more money at an already atrocious problem. He wasted a truly valuable and tremendous opportunity, just threw it away. What a sad, sad disappointment for our great nation, but a stellar example of a classic psychopath.

  • Jeanne

    I forgot to say anything about the last election, did you hear how the president talked bad about ROMNEY. I am a senior citizen and. I have never heard just evil things being said about any one running for president . Abama and Reid are like to little children it is my way or no way. I have not heard any Republiian calling nasty names and making themselves look like spoiled brats. But shame on us for a lot of us don’t seem to care as long as we get more stuff. Stuff is not going to mean anything when we are know longer free. Than guess who will be crying the blues????? What is happening to our

    determined to put power in the hands of those who know best, ( themselves) and rip any power from the “ignorant masses”, (the rest of us).
    They have very nearly succeded.

      You had better start relying on something than the god you pray to because if I recall the is only suppose to be ONE god and they are praying to the same one your praying too.

    The house has not voted against Obamacare 42 times. That is a false number that the mainstream press never looks up, does’t apparently know is a lie, and never challenges. It is just plain what the French call “le beau mensonge,” the beautiful lie. Sounds good, so it must be true. It is not true.

    The President kept saying that Congress already passed these spending bills, the ACA, etc. No, THIS Congress didn’t! The Congress of 2008/9 did and they were replaced because of it. THIS Congress is trying to repair what the last Congress did. SOME in Congress are actually thinking about my 11 year old daughters future and NOT about whether or not the leaf peepers will be able to go to Acadia National Park this week to see the leaves changing color in Maine. Congress needs to remind everyone that our children’s futures are what we are fighting for right now. Spending that is out of control is enslaving their future prosperity. Tell everyone to quit being so selfish!

    I know I’m probably wasting my breath here, but the facts are that whether you like it or not, Obamacare is 1. Already a law and 2. Already funded. Just because the House has the power to try to hamstring it using their right to approve the budget doesn’t mean they should… it’s a misuse of power no matter how you want to look at it. If the law is really as catastrophic as they claim it will be, worst case scenario, it can be amended or repealed later. The way Obamacare is set up, the worst it can do is hurt Americans’ purse strings, meanwhile the sheer scale of it is undoubtedly going to mean that some lives are saved as previously uninsured people get insurance and can see a doctor for the first time in years because “Hell, why not, I have insurance now anyway” or because they have been waiting for an opportunity like this to get help for a problem they already know they have, but couldn’t afford to get help for before.

    It’s not a bad gamble in my opinion… and honestly if I end up paying more for my own insurance because everyone else has insurance now, I would consider that the “true” cost of insurance. It makes me sick to think that my low rates were made on the backs of uninsured people with preexisting conditions who my insurance company didn’t think were a “good business investment.”

    The worst obamacare can do is hurt Americans purse strings? Uh, yeah for DECADES. Is this the legacy we want to leave our children? Some of the ideas are good in theory, but the forced implementation and taxing of Americans go against the very grain of what we stand for as a nation. With so many Americans crying out against this law/tax, our government must listen!

    • Cinnabar

      I disagree that it would last for decades. After all, if it turns out to be economically unfeasible in action, there would be such a public outcry that a repeal of the law would be all but inevitable. There really aren’t that many Americans actually crying out about it right now; a poll measures opinion, not activism, and at this stage none of us have seen enough of the ACA to “really” know whether it is working or not. I’m not saying it’s necessarily good OR bad, just that it isn’t so egregious that we can’t afford to wait and see, then address it with due process once we have.

  • SamHill

    Broad unpopularity? So ridiculous. If the idea of it was so unpopular, why did President Obama get reelected in a landslide over Mitt Romney? Romney made it clear he would do away with it and he lost. You guys are in the minority. Sorry to break that news to you although it should be obvious.
