The Tea Party in the House does not have the numbers or the seniority to push anything without support. Who do you think is providing that support?
The Tea Party is the fall guy here, the Republican Party gets to kill two birds with one stone here. They get to fight Obamacare and knock the Tea Party members down a peg or two.
Just because it is a Law of the Land does not automatically mean that it gets enforced. It would be nice if all laws got enforced, no matter how distatefull they may be to some.
Well...to be honest I am not involved enough in US internal politics to differenciate between Neo-Cons, true conservatives, tea party or true liberals and what exactly that means. I am from europe so all I can go on are some interviews with certain members I catch sometimes and some general and imho objective reports. (Objective since - by and large - it is none of our business, so our news just report on it. For example they did not blame anyone for the current crisis, they just reported what is going on. Fortunatly, at least foreign politics is still reported objectivly on, by and large here.)
And my impression is this, that some republicans seem to be every bit as fanatical as the terrorists they want hunted and have political and moral views regarding their citiziens that would make the Gestapo blush, and religous views which I am not even touching. (You do know that everyone in europe thinks U.S is a joke because you even HAVE this ridiculous evolution vs. creationism debate, heck..in the good old days we just made fun of you not using metric....) And that the old republican presidents from the 60-80 seem to have been more liberal than the Democrats TODAY on some topics.
Tea Party is a joke.......I saw a few interviews with members and I initially thought that was a political satire. How can anyone take them seriously over there?
But that is all besides the point, what I would want to know......what exactly is their problem with this health care programme? Again, 7th richest nation in the world. I hope they are not saying the U.S cannot affort it, lol.
