But the senate just voted
And republicans won the vote to defund planned parenthood
That's actually part of the reason Obamacare is failing because Congress isn't funding the federal subsidies to the exchanges.
40 million lives isn't an issue?
No, not sabotaging it, using their power of the purse granted by the constitution. It was a partisan super-majority that passed the law against the will of the people and according the the constitution, congress holds the power of the purse so its ultimately up to them to fund those initiatives with our money. For the past 6 years, the people have been voting out the Democrats associated with the law with only the President still standing in the way of a full repeal so it's not like it's an unpopular thing.
The super-majority was voted in because there was an anti-Bush/Republican movement happening because of the economy. In the words of James Carville, "It's the economy stupid". Look at any change of power and the people always vote their wallet. If the economy is good, the incumbent party gets voted back in. If it's bad you'll see a continuous march to the opposition.
I don't HATE the law. I think it was completely unnecessary and a complete lie to the American people. It was pushed as households would save an average of $2000 each and they could keep their doctor of the liked it. Neither are true and it was proven that both statements were made only as an attempt to pass the law. Not to mention that deductibles are around $6000/household now on top of skyrocketing premiums on top of it. Why didn't we take a harder look at the factors leading to America's bad health instead like terrible diets and lack of exercise? When 1/3 of our children are obese of course healthcare costs will increase. The ACA addressed the symptom, not the problem.
Feels like the war on common sense is being lost
Like how the hell is this even justifiable?!?!
Word,that pimp named Wayne LaPierre has ridiculous pull thanks to all his pros in congress
