It’s all politics

I understand that Republicans don’t want any plan that would force their constituents, i.e., businesses, to have to incur any costs for the medical care of employees.

I understand that Democrats want affordable, universal healthcare for their constituents. Instant impasse. I do wonder why the GOP is fighting so desperately hard against the healthcare law.

What if Obamacare is a success? If it is, what chance would Republicans have of maintaining control of the House, let alone capturing the Senate?

It’s all politics, my friends. Don’t be fooled by either side. I heard the revered House speaker say that it’s what the American people want.

He doesn’t know or care what the people want. The 99 percent couldn’t contribute enough to run his re-election campaign for even one day, and that’s what he and the other 500-odd care about.
