Analysts say Boehner's demands that Obamacare be placed on the table over negotiations to avoid the fiscal cliff indicate a very tough road ahead
Ok. I don’t see why this is being brought up as an issue. Two economic issues were discussed during the election: raising taxes on income over $250 thousand and Obamacare. True, we didn’t really delve too far into either, but both Dems and Republicans railed against both. Romney even promised to repeal Obamacare right when he entered office if elected. Obviously, the people rejected that idea when they elected Obama. Of course the White House isn’t going to go with this. Why start with conflict.
The worst part is that they aren’t making proposals to improve on the legislation by helping to bring costs down. No! They just want to repeal it outright, maybe keeping some of the more popular parts. This is completely unproductive and it’s been rejected. So why pick this fight? Because they learned nothing. Get prepared people. They’re about to double down on stupid.
