There are some aspects of the GOP’s intent that should be addressed by both parties. Our national debt has climbed to an unsustainable level. We must find a way to curb our spending. Congress and the president must work side by side on this for the good of the nation.
The thrust of the ACA — to provide affordable health care and health insurance to millions of Americans who cannot afford either — is noble. House Republicans should give up this silly charade that portrays it as something that can be negotiated away. Above all, they should stop holding the federal budget hostage.
