The initial Grassley amendment would have required Congress to go through the exchanges for their health care. Reid nearly screwed everyone in Congress with his slapdash rewrite of that amendment.
Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.
People here can make all the excuses they want. That he took ACA because it was the law, the this and that, it's all BS. The fact is he had other options besides ACA.
One option is no insurance. And I could say that no insurance would be the best option for him and his family. And then he'd just pay the fine. But then if something catastrophic happened I could be like the GOP candidates at a debate in 2012 who in response to a question at the debate on what to do with people with no insurance when a person in the audience screamed out 'LET HIM DIE' and not one of the Republican candidates in that debate seemed shocked nor did any correct the the person who said that.
But I'm not that heartless.
