I continue to think of a line from a Sheryl Crow song, "....I can't afford your gas....". At the time of this writing, I have $28 dollars in my account and I drive 120 miles each day to work; do the math. I can't afford this gas coming from DC to subsidize those whose money is longer than my own. I ask which of the items of the ACA have caused the GOP to craft a bill designed to create gridlock in DC? Is it the ability to keep our young adults on our policies until age 26? Is it the elimination of lifetime coverage limits? Is it the removal of fines for pre-existing conditions? Maybe it is the preventive healthcare coverage?
What is the deal with the GOP? They are working overtime to create a crisis. They have attempted to do pre-shutdown damage control but have failed to stick anything on President Obama. In their desperation they have attempted to revive Benghazi. Seriously GOP? Ted "GreenEggsAndHam" Cruz killed any chance Americans believed the GOP has our interests at heart. Between his "showboating" and the direct from Koch talking points the people are seeing today's GOP as little more than corporate sock puppets. To save these multinational corporations from having a 1-2% increase in taxes to cover healthcare, they will shutdown the United States government. Games rich people play. I can't afford their gas.
