The fact is you don't want to answer the question either, for what I assume are the same reasons. What's more, I find it incredibly sad you don't want to answer the question even though it's already been answered by others for you, which I think just goes to show you're not interested in logic or facts, merely team politics.
Let me know when you're ready to discuss my actual question. Thanks.
Absolutely. It should also be represented honestly to the American public, which both sides have failed to do.Shouldn't something as big as this be investigated thoroughly
No. Bipartisan support has nothing to do with our system of government, it is a cog which has been added by big money groups (currently Republicans and Democrats).with majority bipartisan support
No, if that is how we wished for our government to work, then we wouldn't need representatives. Instead, the American people elected a majority of one party in all three elective sections of government, putting their trust into those they elected they will serve the interests of Americans.and the majority approval of the American people before something of this scale is passed?
Does it suck when the policies you believe in are not supported by the majority party? Absolutely. But our history shows one political party doesn't hold power for a relatively long time.
Yes, just like any and all legislation. It was passed to appease people politically and to better a previously flawed system. No one disputes our healthcare industry was in shambles before. Everyone agrees. Obamacare was passed to fix it. Time alone will tell if it improves our situation.It was passed for political reasons, often selfish reasons, and ideological reasons.
It's the only way to run a country. The Republicans do not dispute our system before was not working. But what they seem to want to do is go back to it and then basically keep it that way for another few decades. Oh, I know some posters will present links to a reform Republicans supposedly support, but Republicans did not pass it even when they were the party in power. What Republicans want to do (if I may borrow a phrase from Krauthammer on the Daily Show) is to govern by minority. Unfortunately, and much to the chagrin of whichever party is in power, our government does not work that way.Now the left wing ideologues want bad legislation to be 'fixed' rather than go through the process in a responsible way that corresponds with financial realities, the will of the legislators, and the people they represent.
Is this anyway to tun a country?
So, if the Republicans were truly interested in helping Americans (which everyone knows political parties are only in it to help themselves), they would offer up improvements to Obamacare, which at the very least could make things "better". You work to make the best of a bad situation, until you gain enough power to change the situation.
But, as I said, Republicans don't want to improve Obamacare, because if they offer improvements which work, the American citizen is not likely to give them credit for the improvement, but rather praise Democrats for the original passage. This works against the Republicans political interest, so they do not want to improve it. And just to be clear, if the situations were reversed, the Democrats would do the same thing.
