First, L O fucking L
Why is Congress be exempt from Obamascare anyways? TOTALLY NOT FAIR AT ALL. It's not like they have money nor employer subsidized health insurance or...oh wai
Hmmm...if only there was a difference between what happened when people spoke out against the PATRIOT Act and for the PPACA...
Health Care...surveillance state...same shit.
Believe it or not but HuffPo is one of my most visited sites.
Yes, they do have subsidized health insurance which is something I find to be completely unfair when something like ACA is being passed.
Increased prices of health care to a critical point with no way of opting out without paying a fine. Both deal a blow to individual liberty. Fair?
It's fair that they ask for what he believes is his key achievement to be delayed for an entire year in exchange for a 3 month continuing resolution? Explain how this is fair. Imagine this: The next president is a republican. The House of reps is majority democrats. 30 hardcore liberal dems in the house demand that taxes be raised to 90% for the top 1% or they won't pass a budget and they'll keep the government shut down for an unlimited amount of time until their demands are met. In exchange for the 90% tax rate, they'll give you a 90 day budget. That might sound "extreme" to you but I guarantee that the demands they're making in regard to Obamacare is just as extreme to the dems in power right now.
Even if the democrats were to accept this "fair" offer, what do you think happens in another 90 days?
This is a horrible precedent for our government and is leading us down a really bad path. The logical extension of this is that no law is ever settled if a single person in congress disagrees with it and you're never going to find everyone agreeing on every law. This will lead to perpetual gridlock and probably a rewrite of the constitution if this continues.
Twice now you've written something like this. I haven't seen a single person suggest that it's illegal for them to do this. People think it's bad politics and bad for the country.
This key achievement has been altered and parts of it have been delayed for certain key groups. You want it go in effect then let it be done so in its entirety.
I realize this is extreme to majority of democrats and many liberals all over USA but frankly this is how things work in a republic. Each representative fights for the interests of their constituency. I would expect the democrats to fight for 90% tax if they were elected based on these promises.
I completely agree with you that no single law has ever satisfied everyone and I am sure problems will arise in 90 days but what do you expect when something like ACA gets passed by democrats without any republicans voting for it? You do not need a crystal ball to see the future. If I was Obama then I would make some changes to ACA to make the republicans stfu.
