If, in fact, Obamacare is as bad as the Republicans claim that it is, why not just let it be implemented? It should fail or at least cause great frustration to the populist. Next election, the people will exact their revenge by throwing the bums out!
I think the Republican are afraid it might be successful and people will like it. This would make the GOP look foolish and petty. It was the Republicans who were convinced that Social Security would ruin the nation and that Medicare would be a disaster. They voted against both.
Shutting down the government and refusing to deal with the debt limit just to hold the president's Affordable Care Act hostage is a fool's ploy. Republicans are playing with fire. A fire that could burn us all down!
