Gotta love that MSM spin. You hear it over and over. Any pain this monstrosity causes the public will be characterized as inevitable "bumps in the road" of implementation. As if the problem is the rollout and not the law itself.
The GOP controlled House has had numerous opportunities to defund ObamaCAIR over the past couple of years, yet they have done nothing to do just that. They control the spending, yet under each and every Continuing Resolution that they have passed, funds for the implementation for ObamaCAIR were left in those bills. I know this because I have been watching and calling my Rep to let him know my thoughts which have gone ignored.
Why the hell would we expect them to do this, now?
Yes. And pigs need to grow wings so they can get out of the mud. Neither is a reasonable expectation. Pigs cannot sprout wings; nor can the GOP grow a spine.
“Republicans need to slow walk, drag out, de-fund, do WHATEVER it takes to hinder Obama’s Death Panel edicts.”
For the GOP this is Kabuki Theater. The GOP simply wants to look like they oppose the law. In reality, Republicans are politicians above all else, and what politician could turn away the kind of power Obamacare grants them?
It’s a done deal. And it will hurt everyone but the royal class.
Paul Ryan was on Quinn and Rose claiming that the Dems never intended to pass Obamacare in this form. They thought they could fix it all later, but when Scott Brown got elected it monkeywrenched all their plans. So they crammed thru an unworkable bill rather than start over or take nothing.
Interesting take. Had not heard that before.
I’ll break ranks and say this is idiocy.
GOP of all the things to find yourselves about, you want to return the USA to a healthcare system which leaves a good portion of our population UNCOVERED?
