Stop Trying To Help

I knew that some of the Democrats’ new spinal growth was short-lived.

Anxious congressional Democrats are threatening to abandon President Obama on a central element of his signature health care law, voicing increasing support for proposals that would allow Americans who are losing their health insurance coverage because of the Affordable Care Act to retain it.

Yes, I get it that this pushback — this attempt to “help” Obamacare — is coming from Democrats in red states who are up for re-election, but they’ve already voted for it once, and caving now that the heat is on makes then sound both craven and cowardly.


The one thing I will give the Republicans credit for is that when they back something, they back it up to the hilt and never budge even in the face of tremendous public revulsion.  Fanatics are like that.

Bonus Track: Check out this map and see where people have signed up for Obamacare.  The short version is that people are signing up for it in droves in states where the governors actually tried to help people.
