The longest wait I ever experience in 46 years was a 2 day wait to get an MRI. My sinus surgery last year was scheduled within 24 hours of a final diagnosis and discussion of treatment options with my ENT physician. I am unaware of any family member or friend that has to wait more than a few days for any kind of surgery or even a specialist consultation.
Since you mentioned 'studies that show sometimes waiting is better than acting quickly', perhaps you'd be kind enough to provide a link to said study, rather than make us look up something 'you' claimed?
Boo also ignores the wait time in MA for a doctor appointment and because of that wait time the ER's are more crowded now than ever before. Imagine adding another 30 million to the healthcare system and what that will do to ER's and healthcare costs? Nothing is ever going to change Boo's mind but Boo never backs up his claims with actual data other than distorted cost figures. Somehow adding 30+ million to National healthcare is going to magically lower costs and increase access.
Like criminal laws, court rulings are only immaterial when they are inconvenient to Republicans.

"The stalling game" is the legal challenge itself. If conservatives were so confident the American people would be dissatisfied with the results, they wouldn't be trying to bring the program down before it even begins. At every turn, the GOP says one thing and does another. Its hypocrisy and doublethink are legendary.
