The number of people who constantly condemn the Affordable Care Act, whether they are politicians or ordinary citizens, amazes me.
They nay-say everything about it before it has a chance to succeed.
It stands to reason that any program so huge and complicated would have many quirks that need to be fixed before it can run smoothly.
Because of the Affordable Care Act, close friends had their monthly health insurance premium reduced from over $800 to just over $300.
There have been many more overwhelming successes with the ACA, but you will never hear much about those.
Anyone who is paying attention knows that this is not about the ACA.
This is about Obama and making sure that he has no positive legacy when he leaves office. Just like with everything else he has tried to accomplish, the support of the Republican party is non-existent.
From day one of his election, it was made clear that the one and only goal of the Republican party was to make sure that Obama was a one-term president.
Even though that goal never came to pass, they continue with their animosity and blatant dislike of the president, fighting him on everything, no matter how great or how small.
This will be their modus operandi until Obama is out of office.
Democrat or Republican, they have lost all credibility, all respect. How these politicians keep getting elected is somewhat of a mystery.
I would sincerely hope that the American people show up in droves at the voting polls and get these shameless people out of office and out of our lives. Not one of them is concerned with helping the American people.
That lie has been told so many times that they are starting to believe it themselves.
And the fact that the U.S. intends to keep a military presence in Afghanistan until 2024 when practically all Americans want us out of there is more proof of their deception and lies.
It will never end until they are all gone. Then we may have a few good years until the next batch is corrupted and become as bad, if not worse, than those they replace.
Politics is such an ugly game and all of America, especially middle-class America, will always be collateral damage.
