Obamacare 8,000,000 - Gop plan 0
That's not necessarily a bad thing - should you find yourself in a nasty hole, should you keep the shovel swingin' and brag about how many people you got stuck down there with ya?
I know, it must be tough still waiting for enrollment numbers to come in for Ohio before you can commit.
Before I commit? to what? I'm an avowed opponent of the ACA, now, no need to wait for anything to recognize it for the political hackery it is.
commit to the fact that it is here to stay. At this point you'll either get used to it or become like your forefathers who objected to Social Security, their complaints amounted to nothing also.
Sadly - I suspect you're right. The takers are outvoting the makers - and 'til we change that nothing will improve. Doesn't mean I'll like it, or will ever quit trying to change it. The politicians have recognized the marginalization of the middle, and unless you're a deep pocket, or the newest "oppressed entity" w/a story that can be used to achieve political gain for someone else, your voice won't be heard above the din.
This recognition has nothing to do with the "merits"of the legislative abomination that is the ACA - nor my acceptance that it, the way it was implemented, or that the people shoving the snake-oil up everyone else's asses didn't even know what it looked like before they jumped on the messiah train to proclaim it as the second coming.
If left to succeed or fail on its own merit - I have no doubt as to the outcome, but, as with anything that has to do with solidifying a party hold on a voting demographic, the ACA won't be evaluated on its merit, it will be judged by the politics that can be spun from it. If that looks like "success" to you, BL - then have a heaping spoonful and choke on it.
