Affordable Care Act a.k.a. "Obamacare"

After attacking the Affordable Care Act for three years, Republicans now say they’d like to keep its most popular provisions. How convenient—and how clueless.

In three weeks or so, the Supreme Court will rule on health care. Republicans have been discussing what they might do in the event that poor, beleaguered John Roberts manages to withstand that vicious assault of the liberals and to lead a majority that strikes down the individual mandate. This one is a classic, folks. After spending three years lying their eyes out about the bill and tearing this country apart over it, it now turns out that they may well want to keep several of its provisions. And of course they want to keep the easy and fun stuff and get rid of all that bad-bad-bad stuff, but what they don’t understand—or more likely do understand but refuse to acknowledge—is that the good doesn’t work without the "bad." It’s breathtaking and ignorant—whether breathtakingly ignorant or ignorantly breathtaking I’m not quite sure. Call it the audacity of dopes.

Thank you Mr. Tomasky. Seems more like political smearing.

I certainly did. And after realizing the comment was a C&P I gave credit where credit was due.

I think it's because after doing a decent C&P on the post, the poster tried to spell it him/her self.

Nah - if you make a nickname too long, topix, for some reason, inserts a space.

How about just calling welfare and have everyone enroll. Then Obama can be the King of the USA
