Why is GOP willing to close government?

I was wondering why the Republicians are so against the people getting health insurance.

If they did not have lifetime health coverage, would they still be against it? Would they still be shutting the government down with people losing work if this were an election year?

It seems strange that they seem to go against a lot of what President Obama proposes. The Republicans also shut down the New York State government a few years ago when David Patterson was governor.

Is this because both men are black? I hope not.

I was a registered Republican from 1968 (the first year I could vote) until last year when I got tired of what the Republicans where doing in our government. These are some questions I wanted to get off my chest.
