|He has healthcare.|
Hatred of the ACA has become so great by many of the right wing GOP, that they are prepared to throw the people under the bus because of it. No matter what you think of what is termed 'Obamacare' it is legislation that has already been passed and agreed on. Now they want to shut the government down.
They are willing to gut the SNAP program as if getting food stamps is a luxury. The GOP hates the ACA so much that they are willing to let the military go unpaid, stop medical research and God knows what else, just to defund Obamacare. They have held the economy hostage for years causing people to lose jobs and make America look like a third world country. They have declared war on the poor, the middle class and any American that is struggling in an economy that is rigged against the average citizen.
Boehner is always saying he speaks for the American people. I don't know any American who thinks it's a good idea for people to go without healthcare, to go hungry or to go without employment for decent wages. So who could he be speaking for? Maybe rich people? Why is it that these "leaders" wait for a crises in order to do anything? Then, the only thing they are willing to do is let Americans in need go without. All these politicians do is the very least to get by and retain their jobs. It really makes me sick. So go ahead and shut it down. History will show what a failure this Speaker of The House is.
History will also show that President Obama will remembered for being the first President to get health care reform passed after nearly every President before him tried and failed. History will remember that he brought the country back from the brink of a 2nd Great Depression. My biggest problem with President Obama is that he didn't go far enough.
When your own government is populated with terrorists holding the economy hostage and denying healthcare to millions while saying they "speak" for the American people, well I want to know who exactly they are speaking to? Certainly not the uninsured.
