Thread: 30+ and counting

    30+ and counting

    attempts by the House Republicans at repeal of ACA. This is a perfect example of this... Seems they won't stop and IMO, will be detrimental to the GOP in the long run.

    Looks like you meant to include a link and forgot.

    because it bans freedom toast and freedome fries among other things.

    Obamacare costs too much and will be bad for the country....IMO.

    the example was the icon of banging one's head against a wall over the endless votes which is getting nobody anywhere.

    You said this is a perfect example of this. I believe Luth is wondering about the first this, not the second this.

    Pretend as though my TV has been tuned to Dora the Explorer and Bubble Guppies all morning and I'm interested in finding out more about these attempts to overturn ACA.

    I'm thinking that Luth is gently asking/reminding 57 that he's supposed to provide links according to common board rules or at least etiquette, but I could be wrong...

    This isn't even a board rules thing necessarily...I honestly thought he forgot to include the actual story that he had made the comment on, since the OP sounded like it came from the middle of a thread and wasn't really an introduction to the topic.

    Should it not be repealed simply because the majority of Americans do not want it??

    I saw that on CNN this morning (sorry, no link) and it certainly is a fine example of showboating politics.

    According to the last Rasmussen report, the majority of Americans want marijuana legalized. Pretty sure that isn't enough to make it happen.

    I propose a trade. Legal dope for Obamacare repeal.
