Originally my desire was to avoid this discussion. To me the whole thing is nothing more than political bull. But I cannot stick my head in the sand anymore.
Surfing the channels this morning shows much gnashing of teeth and bloviating regarding the government turning off the lights at midnight tonight at the same moment the affordable care act turns on the lights.
The irony is amazing. How can anyone of sane mind listen to the bs coming from our house of representatives and have any confidence in our government is beyond me.
A minority of radical Republicans in the house has complete control, and unless Speaker John Boehner grows a pair and stands up for what is best for the United States of America, we are in for a dismal future.
Come on Speaker Boehner, the affordable care act passed through congress and was signed into law by the president. It passed an examination by the U.S. Supreme Court; it has survived over 40 attempts at repeal.
Isn’t it time you told your caucus to change their diapers and get on with doing what you were elected to do?
If you do fail to do your job, you and all other members should be fired for incompetence. This should result in all members of congress having to go on unemployment and possibly apply for food stamps.
Well, I can dream can’t I?
Enjoy the dream friends and enjoy the day.
