Of course the GOP could have defunded this in 2010. They do have the constitutional power. Instead they made excuses why they could not and let it build and build getting worse by the day. Now the cure will result in many companies being destroyed because literally BILLIONS have been spent by insurers having to restructure their models to comply with Obamacare. And that further means many people will get financially wiped out in the aftermath.
That’s a fact many people just can’t seem to admit.
You don’t win elections by cleaning up the mess too soon. A gullible public must be burned twice to not trust the match a third time.
