Many tell us what to think. I ask my readers to be skeptical. Question me and others.

Health care

GOP versus Obama

Many GOP leaders want to stop funding for Obamacare, even if it would mean not voting the budget and practically shutting down the government. President Obama is upset.  The original sin is that the different options of health care reform were never systematically publicly debated. Then, the current administration made a cardinal mistake, when using a brief narrow majority in the House, had the bill passed. In democracy, every major policy change needs meaningful bi-partisan support, as in the long run no policy can be implemented without that. And, this is exactly what is happening now. I leave it to you to decide what is worse; using a short-term majority to pass a bill that is strongly opposed by the meaningful minority, or using a brief majority to stop this bill from implementation.
