Carol, How could the Democrats do it when Republicans controlled what went before the House & Senate?<quoted text>
Probably the same thing Democrats did after HillaryCare bombed during Clinton's second year.
And I actually criticize Republicans for not picking up the mantle when they had the opportunity during Clinton's last six years.
The only reason I held out hope for Bill Clinton was because he promised to solve this crisis.
I've been waiting for a solution for a very long time.
But when the time finally arrived again, Democrats decided it would be done their and Obama's way and Republicans weren't invited to the table - even though their solutions would have brought down the costs of health care - which is the huge oversized pink elephant still in the room.
Republicans blockled Clinton's effort & then when they got control of congress CHOSE to ignore it.
When Democrats took control with a Demorat resident they addressed this issue.
Republican leadership rain down hHell on any Republicans who tried to help or be involved. They were certainly invited. Bit hey, their leadership met in December of 2008 & decided then to just vote no on everything Obama wanted.
How may Republican amendments are there with the ACA. I mean certainly there must be zero if they were "locked out" as you claim.
Is all you got lies, Carol? Really. Grow the f*ck up.
