“Despite knowing that both sides have major flaws in their arguments and actions over the past few years, both sides continue to double down, just as Americans are trying to ride a double dip of a sluggish economy.”

AMERICAN URBAN RADIO NETWORK (October 17, 2013) –  “Sometimes the height of hypocrisy comes when the chosen purport a sense of arrogance with their actions out of a self-absorbed sense of nobility.

 

“What do I mean?

 

“Look no further than the political landscape and the stalemate coming out of Washington, DC.

 

“Again.

 

“America finds itself at the brink of default and in the crosshairs of economic winds of change globally because the two sides of our political system cannot admit to the errors of their ways.

 

 

“Despite the on-going self-repeal of the Affordable Care Act, the growing opposition to this legislation from former political allies, the still-weak economy, and the failures during the rollout of Obamacare so far, the Obama Administration refuses to consider delaying one of the most controversial, misunderstood, and partisan bills ever passed in American history.

 

“…despite the congressional numbers, poll numbers, election losses, and national viewpoint on our brand, some within the Republican Party have decided to hunker down and continue the fight against Obamacare. In the process, they have – far too often -given the image of opposing the president because of the man that he is versus just opposing his politics and policies. Now, for the third time in as many years, the Republicans are in a political fight where their ultimate objective is apparently unattainable at this time, the opportunity for methodical wins are overlooked during the process, and everyday Americans have continued struggling in the meanwhile.”

Obamacare: Legal Today Does Not Mean Good, Flawless, or Effective Right Now

“Obamacare may be legal, but Republicans have a point in wanting this law delayed, modified, or repealed from its current form – even if their methods for addressing the glitches of this legislation are mistimed or misguided. There is enough evidence out there to make the case aside from the political animus.”

NEW YORK CITY (October 10, 2013) –  “…we have to admit: Republicans have a point, once we examine what is going on with Obamacare. The legality of a law does not make that law a good law, a moral law, or a functional law…Laws deemed constitutional by the courts do not mean that they are inherently good for our communities, reflective of the needs of Americans, or rooted in the spirit of the American Dream of liberty and justice for all…From the exceptions granted to constituents of former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to the on-going self-repeal of the ACA through Obama-mandated delays to implementing the law, it is becoming clear that the law – though well-intended – has enough technical and process-related problems that an overall delay of executing the law in its current form has merit…even if some of the rhetoric behind the effort to delay Obamacare might not.”
