There is a contingent here that seems to feel the same way.

I venture to guess that they won't be the ones actually HURT by it.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) called on House Budget Committee chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) to work with House Speaker John Boehner to pass a grand bargain deal that would end the government shutdown, raise the debt ceiling, and protect Obamacare by not delaying or defunding it.

Wouldn't it have been simpler if he had just said give in to Obama on everything?

I feel that if Obamacare is going to hurt the United States so much, the right should let him hang himself with it. If it's a complete flop and a total failure it can just be undone later, and it would make Obama and the left look very bad/ineffective.

Originally, I thought so, too. But, legislation is like cancer. Once you've got it it's tough to get rid of.

A lot of people feel that way. The problem is that while we're waiting for it to be undone - and there's no guarantee it ever will be undone - a lot of people will suffer greatly, both medically and financially.

Yep, better to prevent it.

Exactly. It is to be opposed on principle.

You stop fighting it now only if you want a single payer - government run - system. I do not and frankly you should not, either, unless you are comfortable with Uncle Sam telling you everything you can and cannot do in your daily life - because if they control your healthcare they control you 100%.

The American public is stupid, and easily led by the media. There will be token complaints in the media, but if allowed to press forward, Obamacare will be declared a success by the media. Any shortcomings will be explained as the best you can do with the current system, hence the need for a single payer system.

The only thing I can think of that Obama could do to draw the ire of his adoring sycophants in the media is switch parties to Republican.

I wish Lindsey would just shut his flapper. If he was really for the people, he would follow true conservatives. Instead, he wants to be a leader who can't lead.

He's part of the problem in DC - not the solution.
