Attempting to deny a healthy life to anyone, let alone the poor and disadvantaged, would seem to be a less than virtuous stance to take. To do so to make a political point reeks of moral turpitude. To do so and inflict hardship on others is morally bankrupt.
The Tea Party to a T.
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), more commonly the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or Obamacare became law on march 23 2010. It protects low income individuals and families, often minorities. A decent thing to do.
It provides for minimum standards of health insurance, something not enjoyed in the US before. On June 28, 2012, the US Supreme Court upheld its constitutionality. It is a just law, even if it could have been better. But it is the United States.
Hear that Tea Party? It is law and the highest law court in the land defended it! Yet you still behave like the Taliban or jihadi terrorists! Modern day fascists. Disgraceful. Vile.
Libertarianism is earning a black name under this vile group of extremists. A blacker name.
Listening to the radio tonight I heard an American (whose name I sadly missed) claim that the US political system was broken. The Tea Party is proof of this.

Ironically, then governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney, President Obama’s loosing challenger in the last election signed into law a similar insurance expansion bill in 2006. Hilary Clinton had long championed universal health care and President Clinton tried in vein to introduce it nationally during his presidency. Always opposed by the representatives of the wealthy and influential, the Republican Party. Grand Old Party or Gouge Out the Poor?
