The current vote to repeal the ACA (obamacare) is simply Boehner using the office of speaker for a political add. (yea, the pres uses his office too). Both ought to be trying to work out solutions to the many problems facing me and you. Our politicians are more interested in gaining or maintaining power that doing what is good for the country. I wish they would use the time in the Capitol and White House to work on public business instead of electioneering.
