Hey look...the sun came up today after all.
The United States ranks 51st in life expectancy; we're behind Latvia! Yet the Republican party fought tooth and nail to block the ACA rather than finding a way to mold it to their vision of "freedom" and "limited government".
I'll admit that I'm fairly disgusted by this. I think the PPACA is a POS, but this is not the way to address it. Shutting down the government is a temper tantrum. Defaulting on the debt will be even worse, and if we lose our credit rating again, that will affect who I will consider for a vote long term.

As for life expectancy.... a Proper life lived for 9 years is far better than an improper one which extends for a century.
