Practice Is Meaningless

Practice Is Meaningless If You Choke In ActionPractice Is Meaningless If You Choke In Action

Despite having had seven years to come up with a working solution to the wrecked junker that is ObamaCare, Congressional Republicans choked when practice became reality. This was something that I feared would happen though, so I’m at least not shocked by it.

It's like a facehugger but not as pleasantRemoving May Take Longer Than We Thought

Please understand, however, that I always knew that the process of repealing and possibly replacing ObamaCare would be exact that, a process. I also truly do understand that it will be what most of us would consider a long and painful process.

The Democrats, quasi-led and certain sheltered by their precious token, Obama, made sure that ObamaCare would be nigh on impossible to repeal. It’s octopuslike – some would say Cthuhluian – tentacles stretch around and strangle the entirety of our nation healthcare and health insurance systems. That’s a hard thing to remove at a stroke.

Still though, the GOP has had seven freaking years to come up with a treatment plan. So far, going by their first effort – if one can call it that with a straight face, all that time for practice has been wasted.

A Failure Of Care

The ironically – or Orwellian – name Affordable Care Act (ACA) aka Obama is and was from its inception a failure- a fail of care and a failure on the part of Democrats to care about the consequences of their actions. Hellfire and their damnation! It was a failure on their part to even read the omnibus bill before forcing it into law and upon the American people.

No, It needs the scrapyard
It Just Needs A Few Minor Tune-Ups

This failure resulted in a new “healthcare system” that was broken, that needed more than minor fixes to work even so well as what America had before – despite all of Obama’s tap-dancing and the Congressional Democrats’ dissembling. ObamaCare needed to be sent to the proverbial scrapyard and, in theory, replaced with something that could actually work in America.

Over the course of the intervening seven painful years, it seemed that Congressional Republicans understood this.

Failure Of CareThere! Better Than New

Sadly for we, the People, seeming isn’t being. What the GOP seems to think are fixes for ObamaCare are, in my opinion, merely a hodgepodge of removals of various components and restrictions within the ACA with – once again – a failure to care about the consequences of their actions. No, instead of the promised “Repeal and Replace,” the American Health Care Act (AHCA) aka RyanCare is little more than a shade tree patch job of ObamaCare and a bad one at that.

Proverbial VP Debate

Paul Ryan debated Joe Biden and Biden was certainly in full form and his performance was as passionate as it was colorful. In some ways the vice presidential debate was biblical…

If a wise man has an argument with a fool, the fool only rages and laughs, and there is no quiet.

Proverbs 29:9, the Bible (ESV)

“Laughing Joe” certainly was feisty and entertaining though. The Vice President’s chuckles, sighs, interruptions, and odd asides during the debate with Rep. Paul Ryan really stole the show, something that was not predicted to happen.
