Mr. Krysak, my first reaction to your pedantic history lesson was: what a load of folderol. But after sifting through it in an effort to understand what the point was that you were trying make, I discovered it was a treatise in support of Obamacare.
I heartily disagree with you and take exception to your comments about The Affordable Healthcare Act, aka Obamacare. That legislation was done in backroom deals and against the will of the people. Even though it was clear that none of them had read the bill, it was touted and spun by Reid, Pelosi and Barack Obama.
Literally, under the cloak of darkness, Obama and his minions rammed socialism down the throats of Americans. And it was Congressional representation that did not and does not represent the will of the people. Obamacare passed the Senate, 60-39. Not one Republican voted for this disaster. This was not the “will of the people,” Mr. Krysak. It was later deemed to be a tax by the Supreme Court after Obama had promised that it was not a tax. Seems to me this is “taxation without representation.”
I do agree with your statement that the enemy of our system is ignorance and apathy. That is what got Obama and his policies a second term: People hooked by the “simplistic bait” dangled in front of them that turned them into a ready-made Obama constituency that voted for him because he promised more government handouts To put the cherry on the top is a media that has fawned over and curried favor from Obama and is the machine that serves up his flimflam to America
Yes, we are a nation that is surviving, but far from thriving. With an unemployment rate of over 7 percent, our rising poverty levels, our reliance on foreign oil, our crumbling infrastructure and morals, our race baiting and nefarious governance, we are floundering. We need leadership that get us back working. The Affordable Healthcare Act took precedence over what we really need: JOBS.
