I am a 100% disabled vet. My wife works on an Air Force base. We have a little money saved. When you decide to shut down the government and refuse to pay the bills the money we have saved will quickly run out. We will be ruined and for what?
So you can say you took a principled position and held your ground. Bullshit. Over 65 million Americans voted for the ACA in the last presidential election. The choice was clear. We might not be happy with all of the provisions but we've known for a long time that preventative medicine is cheaper than emergency medicine. I have never voted for a republican and know that I never will. That said, Barry Goldwater once said something on the lines of, I know most Arizonan's won't like this but this bill is for the good of the country and I'm going to vote for it. For the good of the country. You might try it sometime.
