The Supreme Court has loudly slapped the entire GOP establishment across their smug faces with a hardcover copy of the Constitution. The Republicans have spent the last 4 years yapping at Obama’s heels over nothing. By eliminating the ability of companies to withhold coverage due to preexisting conditions, “Obamacare” ensures that no one can die or go bankrupt unnecessarily in the wealthiest country in the world because of a treatable condition. The ACA expands the security of the American people’s rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Our children will see the ACA the way we see Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid: a necessary, reasonable program that increases the quality of life in America.
Yesterday, Romney said that Obama will have “wasted” his first term if the ACA were overturned. He and the Republicans have been banking on corporate corruption of the Supreme Court, evident in the Citizens United ruling, to carry forth their agenda of looting the middle class for the good of the rich. But the Supreme Court upheld the Constitution instead.
The fact is, the Republicans, hijacked by Tea Party extremists, have wasted the last four years. Romney has wasted his campaign thus far. He has nothing to offer except to promise to overturn Obama’s Act, to return us to a time when you had the FREEDOM! to die of an entirely treatable disease like America is a third-world country. No thanks, Mitt.
