When you have one party intentionally throwing a wrench in the works and both state and federal level.
When you have a whole noise machine rejoicing at the slightest snag.
When you have insurance companies throwing a wrench in the works due to having to scrap junk insurance and cover those with pre-existing conditions, when all they want to do is; insure the healthy and abandon the sick as soon as possible.
When not one among them has the slightest intention nor an inkling of how to make health care work in the US.
There were 47million +/- people without any form of health insurance.
Medical bankruptcy was a fact of life.
These inefficiencies coupled with the most expensive medical system in the world were an abomination in a developed democracy.
The fact that an African American President might try and even succeed in trying to reform this system brought out the very worst in our society and exposed:
For all the world to see in vivid technicolor.
The mainstream media has been shown to be a tool of the corporate elite and nothing more; they don't merit the protection of the first amendment in my mind.
I don't like the Affordable Care Act, I never did, but it is a small step in the right direction towards universal or single payer health care.
I must admit that I thought that when passed at least the Teahadist Party in DC might just try and govern.
No, what we have is an all out temper tantrum by the health care corporations, the pathetic corporate press and a bunch of good for nothings in DC.
None of them have provided any idea on how to improve health care; either before or after the passing of the ACA. Just the same crappy expensive economic minefield of the past which left so many millions of America on the edge.
The glee shown in the problems is disgusting.
The political vandalism caused by this ideological and racially driven effort to stop the ACA, even if it means causing economic ruin is despicable.
If they have a better idea, then they should spit it out.
If not get out the fucking way and stop behaving as spoilt brats by trying to sabotage a reform that needed to be done decades ago.
