I can’t believe it’s come to this. The government is really shut down. This is crazy. How do rational adults fight like they’re seven year olds?
Oh–hold on. I answered my own question.
“Obamacare” is decided law? The Affordable Care Act was passed by Congress, then signed by the president. It was litigated in the Supreme Court and survived the challenge.
Then, in last year’s presidential election, Governor Romney and President Obama based much of their campaigns on their diametrically opposed views on it. Obama won.
Meanwhile, all I see on TV is intransigence, posturing and half truths.
The cable networks are having a field day. This is their Super Bowl. They’ve got a compelling story with developing details.
Are they milking our angst? Probably.
My blood is boiling. Pre-existing condition?
Our health care system stinks. It’s prohibitively expensive with results that trail much of the rest of the world. The ACA is a step forward.
How can the Republicans in Congress think “Obamacare” is so evil it’s worth shutting down America? Maybe they’re scared it will succeed?
