Let it die

ObamaCare is unsustainable. The Democrats own it. They own it double in that they are not on board with trying to cure its obvious issues. Let it die of its own bureaucracy, untenable cost burdens, and unworkable economics. Trump should help it along to the deathbed by excising the odious forced compliance mandate through executive order. If Obama could change the terms, so can Trump.

The GOP again showed their true colors. They are more than happy to be the minority party. America said "Fix this POS" healthcare law. The Republicans had 7 years to come up with a plan. The GOP said if you give us the House we will fix it. Then they said they needed control of the Senate. Finally the GOP demanded the White House. Again the voters handed them the power. What do we get in return? "Oh crap, now what do we do?".

The politicians of both parties are not listening to the People. There was a reason outsiders were key figures in the last election. Voters flocked to Trump and Sanders. We are tired of the same old politics as usual. Neither party has any interest in shrinking government. Both claim a reduction in the planned increase in spending is a "cut". Both parties abrogate their responsibility by passing "Continuing Resolutions" instead of an actual budget.

The press likes to tell us how unpopular the President is. Congress rates even lower. Our representative earn three times the average worker, exempt themselves from the laws they pass, vote themselves junkets and vacations at the taxpayer expense, get pensions for life and complain they need a housing allowance to make ends meet. Yet somehow every one of these guys and gals leaves office a multimillionaire. I don't care how much you save and invest, $160K a year does not turn into tens of millions in a decade unless you get Hillary to teach you about cattle futures.

I am trying to be a better person, comment less on politics, curse a whole lot less, but to Congress and politicians in general, I say piss on you all. Bring on a Trump, a Kid Rock, Dwayne the Rock Johnson. They can't be worse than the assholes we currently have.

I think it should be mandatory that upon taking office every politician gets a tattoo on his right arm that reads "That is someone else's money you are spending". Fuck them all.

I'm going to register as a Whig.

That about covers it. Personally I want term limits, get the government out of health care, education get back to basic government. We are turning into Canada.

I couldn't have said it better than you. Our government is a disgrace. Except for Trump. I certainly give the guy a lot of credit for at least trying. Let Obamacare fail. F**ck everyone!

They've passed full repeal in previous Congresses. The question is, why can't they pass it now?

The GOP doesn't operate well when it's in full charge. It got too comfy and country-clubby when it was in the minority, or had no chance of overriding Obama's veto. But now it hesitates to wield its full power, because it doesn't like being yelled at and called a bully by the other party, and because it wants them all to be friends when they end up in the minority again.

Which may well be in 2018, if they don't start doing what the voters told them to do.

It was safe to vote for repeal before. Obama was sure to veto.

Now the ball-less wonders show their colors
