|THE IDEOLOGICAL WAR BETWEEN PRESIDENT OBAMA AND ACTIVIST REPUBLICANS
or 16 days in October 2013, House Speaker Boehner and the Republican House partially shut down the government. The issue was their attempt to destroy or delay the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare. That attempt failed, but represented one more battle between the President and the Republicans that has occurred in the past 5 years. If you'd like to gain an understanding of what's been going on, join us as Instructor Rich Elfers explains this struggle for control of the government and the nation. The issues represent a major sea change in American Politics; winning the 2014 Congressional elections is the prize. Lecture based on Jeffrey Toobin's book The Oath.
