Obstructionism on Affordable Care Act must stop

Somehow the far right wing of the Republican Party didn’t get it. When the Affordable Care Act was passed into law Michele Bachmann screeched and Glenn Beck wept. When the Supreme Court upheld it as Constitutional Mitt Romney vowed to repeal it when he was elected, but he wasn’t even though his pledge to repeal the law was a major issue of his campaign. They just don’t understand that they are out of power and their ideas are unpopular, yet somehow they think denying 800,000 people their paycheck and keeping them home indefinitely is a good idea. Their cognitive dissonance is evidenced even more by the fact that White House tours are among the services shutdown, it’s strange Ted Cruz would want to end that service, since it is the only way he will every get into the White House.
