|I know you're all with me on this right? I mean who needs Obamacare?|
Republicans in Congress are renewing their political assault on the nation’s new healthcare law, trying to repeal President Obama's signature domestic achievement as part of the next battle over the federal budget.
Rep. Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin, last year's Republican vice presidential nominee, said Sunday his forthcoming budget proposal will include repeal of "Obamacare," as his party calls it. That position puts tea-party conservatives at odds with others in the GOP who want to find common ground with Obama on the nation's fiscal woes after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the health law.
In the Senate, conservatives will press for a vote this week to delay funding for the health law as part of a bill that must pass to keep the government running beyond March 27.
"We say we get rid of 'Obamacare,' " Ryan said on "Fox News Sunday."
I swear these morons NEVER learn!
The American people want Obamacare and continuing to attack it simply demonstrates their refusal to accept that reality.
These tactics might work to help Republicans get reelected in solidly red districts, but surely they must realize that the demographics are changing all over the country, and that this kind of flailing around will be seen as a failure for the party nationally.
Pretty soon even solidly Republican states and districts are going to become disenchanted with the impotence of their elected officials and support for them and their party will wither away.
Which by the way is something we are watching happen already.
