    maybe the decision is based on emotion, not rationality. humans are not like machines, we may be logical but sometimes ones logic is overruled by ones emotion's.

    Government should not be based on emotion. It should be based on activities that benefit society as a whole, not individually...

    and why is getting rid of a government program that helps people who cannot afford private insurance but don't qualify for medicaid beneficial for society?

    So is taxing people to fund these programs being empathetic to people?

    Is forcing people to buy insurance being empathetic to people?

    Is forcing insurance companies to cover whatever you want being empathetic to people?

    Should I go on?

    Because he doesn't really have a choice. Whether or not he likes it, Obama is President until 2017.

    So Boehner can work with that for the good of the country, or he can play silly political theatre. I think we all know what he'll choose, which is very sad.

    Obamacare is really compassionate. You know, with all the forced commerce it involves. Oh right, forcing people to do what they don't desire to do is compassionate now.
