Recent polls of Republican voters (suckers) show that 35% of them believe that the Affordable Care Act(ACA) and Obamacare are different. Six years after its passage, countless Tea Party demonstrations, and sixty House GOP votes against the law this fact still exists in the nimble minds of GOP voters. Although that is amazing, I find the recent uproar at GOP House members' town hall meetings to be fascinating even more so. For example, a recent article at Raw Story: "Utah Republican Jason Chaffetz: Angry town hall protesters were paid to ‘bully and intimidate’ me". Or another headline: "Republican House Members Assailed by Angry Crowds at Town Halls in Utah, Tennessee" from GovNews.US. Finally, a real profile in courage: SEN. MCCONNELL FLED KY TARMAC IN AN SUV TO AVOID CONSTITUENTS, BUT FOUND THEM OUTSIDE HIS HOME TOO.
Obviously these "suckers" are upset about the possibility of losing their healthcare. But considering the fact that Red States governors have been reluctant or obstructing their citizens from participating in the ACA from the start, especially in extending the Medicaid provisions for their low income voters(the real idiots who vote for the GOP). Also, consider that the GOP House members who they are haranguing voted against the law (possibly 60 times) and that they just reelected him/her. What part of these past six years did these people miss?
These "suckers" elected a person who does not give a damn about them, who legislates against their interests, who complains when called on the carpet, finally, about their votes and is now pissed. Are the "suckers" waking up? I doubt it. For, if they were waking up, they would have not reelected the person just three months ago. So feel good that they are holding the representative to account for their votes against the ACA, but if you vote for a fool what does that make you? And after all 35% of them will still have the Obamacare!
Comments to think about.
