Repealing Obamacare? Get a Grip

Would you believe the new congress has already scheduled a vote for January 12th to repeal the new Healthcare Bill?  Not since a special prosecutor was appointed by Republicans to investigate the Bill Clinton/ Monica Lewinski affair has there been such a waste of time and taxpayer money.

Republicans may narrowly control the House, but they don't control the Senate, so  there is no question of  repeal actually happening. What is sure, is a lot of grandstanding, hot rhetoric and a total waste of taxpayer money by people in theory dedicated to cutting government spending, but who are, in reality. bought and paid for by the  Insurance Industry and Big Pharma -- the folks who really run the Washington puppet  show. Ironic, isn't it?

Meanwhile, in the wake of economic recession, the number of Americans without health insurance rose to an estimated 50 million in 2010.  The situation is getting worse not better. Repealing Obamacare will not happen and would not help if it did..  The entire thing is a small minded attempt to discredit the President and obstruct his administration.  Remember that the chief aim of the Republicans is to make Obama a one term Prez.

Pass the popcorn. It's going to be quite a show.  I may need Kleenex too because it is also very very sad.
