The Patient President: Obamacare Succeeding!

As usual the Republicans are trying with all their might to derail the president's Affordable Healthcare Act any way they can. They are now losing that battle as they have lost most battles to obstruct the president. This Congress, specifically because of a nullification Republican House, has the dubious distinction of passing the least amount of legislation in US history. It is shameful because there is so much more that needs to be done to heal the nation from immigration reform to repair of roads, bridges and economic repair of a nation that suffered, in 2007, the worst Recession since the Great Depression.

Our president has done the best he could with the most vicious and obstructionist Congressional House since the pre-Civil War era. Think how much could be done with a majority Democratic House and Senate.

Since the health care web site is now, as the president promised, working infinitely better Republicans now try to subvert it through more lies to their ever-so-racist Republican base hoping those lies will stick onto the moderate NON- racist middle just in time for the 2014 mid-term elections. Do not let them succeed.

How many times has one tried to get onto other private enterprise sites only to be stopped by a glitch or a site freezing up? The problem is endemic to technology and has NOTHING to do with the quality of the president's Affordable Healthcare Act which will work even better in time and provide health care to millions who have never had health insurance before. It is lifesaving legislation.

The miracle is our patient president pulled another rabbit out of his amazing hat. But that is not enough for the obstructionist Republicans. They must do everything possible to subvert a president even rejecting federal help for the poorest of the poor through federal Medicaid payments in not only southern states like Georgia and Texas but other states that sport Republican-controlled state legislatures and governor's offices as well.

These are Republicans are without conscience because a singular extremist Party of nearly all white has not only objections to Democrats succeeding but more specifically to the first African American president succeeding and occupying the heretofore very White House.

Why the 2014 elections are so important and why Democrats must retake the House, keep the Senate and later, in 2016, take the presidency. Give and work for that when you can. Your life and your children's lives depend upon it!
