Yeah we know they wanted to shine the 1996 crap all over again and pretend they have a solution.
Go ahead look up what they came up with to discard "Hillarycare". Its SOSDD.
But really AF... the big beef the republiclown have against Obamacare is that it got passed with out a single republiclown vote to make it happen. It was an act that sent your guys into a ring tailed hissy fit and you lost all your cool. All that patriotic strut you got from Karl Rove went out the door and your anger is palpable in every move You think you got screwed because your opinion didn't matter. It really really bugs the $#!# out of you. Everything the clowns have put out since that happened is about revenge... getting even.. gonna fix that guy.
Like it or not its your own fault it played out that way. You had six years of everything your way, you fought two wars on borrowed money and you tanked the economy so you were put in time out. You can't stand it that you put yourselves into irrelevance with tired worn out ideas that failed. Rather than come up with new ones you keep trying to convince everyone that it just needs more time. You were given the time... and now nobody is buying it any more.
Since the old guard was part of the failed Bush years that your party still refuses to talk about... or acknowledge in a way that we get you take responsibility for causing that to happen.... so you rallied behind the -----------... Only problem is they didn't (don't) know what they were/are doing.
Even though among your ranks the ACA concept was born... you decide are going to do everything in your power to repeal it... and put all your energy into righting the insult of Obama not needing your blessing to get it passed. Thing is... it was all perfectly legal. Your team has spent 3 years casting meaningless votes to repeal it.
Did you know that Obama has vetoed only two things in 5 years... and with a republiclown congress?! Even Bush managed to find his veto pen and squeezed out a dozen in two years when Democrats took over congress. Obama hasn't had to because congress has not put forth any ideas to vote on so nothing to veto. The republiclown congress is self vetoing. Digging in its heels substituting obstinance for policy.
I think your anger at Obama for doing something shrewd has clouded your judgement and more time is spent trying to undo the stinging insult from Obama than something useful to undo the mess left behind by Bush. You elect into office a bunch of whacko wannabe activists who were egotistical enough to think they were going to start a movement... and that the clown brigade constituency rally on the capital steps. Guess what? They are not interested. Its been demonstrated over and over again with planned escapades, truckers going to block traffic, congressmen going shut down of the government and toddling over to the war memorial looking forward to kudos from some veterans only to end up bitching out a park ranger for carrying out their orders and shutting down a government run agency. They keep on talking about "what the American people don't want" and when they throw a rally or a party that doesn't offer free food no one shows up.
The republiclowns thin skinned response to political maneuver and refusal to man up and admit your mistakes is what is keeping you a parody of a viable party. The best you can come up with in response to anything Obama backed has been Kenyan, Muslim, socialist, Benghazi, laced vitriol comparing minor set backs to the major screw up of the Bush presidency....and worst of all he's a liar who breaks his promises...so there!! neener neener!! nyah!
