No Republican voted for ObamaCare.
No Republican voted to repeal ObamaCare.
What the heck do they do all day?
Clearly "Obamacare" is the most partisan legislation either. One side is completely for it, the other side is completely against it. That is troublesome no matter what side of the fence you are on.
I can't think of any congressman that I'm impressed with, republican, democrat, or others. Congress is a disaster, which also casts a shadow upon the parliamentary form of governments which are basically a congress running the entire show.
As for this repeal thing... from what I can tell, instead of voting to repeal Obamacare, the republicans have decided to just let Obamacare crash. A real life analogy to that would be whether to have a dying dog with only a short time left to be put to sleep with an injection (repealed) or just allowed to die by letting nature take it's course.
The research on Obamacare is extremely confusing and the facts are so obfuscated that they are useless. One thing that caught my eye is "Who qualifies for Obamacare?" That is my biggest problem with Obamacare.. in that people are REQUIRED to purchase health care or be severely penalized on their taxes. Most of those health plans being purchased don't cover squat and are useless.
I think your earlier solution is the best.. make healthcare a STATE issue instead of FEDERAL.
