The funny thing is that had the Republicans simply let Obamacare play out in its own way, instead of trying to defund, delay, and sabotage it, they may actually have been able to score political points on its back in the future.
This statistically minuscule percentage of the overall congressional body then has managed to wreak untold havoc on nearly every aspect of American life. How did that happen?
Outrageous. And all for what? Because a small faction of snot-nosed kids within the Republican Party cannot accept the outcomes of the 2008 and 2012 elections and the passage of the Affordable Care Act.
This ideological battle is not about changing a law, but subverting the Constitution. The Constitution is clear about how we change and amend laws. A shutdown is not one of the listed remedies.
Here, in no particular order, are the ways this debacle may alter your plate.
Do you realize that the "Obama" of "Obamacare" is never going to throw his signature health care reform under the GOP bus? You do realize that you're at an impossible impasse, don't you?
It's one thing for the GOP to demand cuts in government spending as a way to enforce fiscal responsibility on Washington, but it is quite another for them to hold the federal budget hostage in order to backdoor a political agenda. That is so far from governing that it is laughable, if not downright impeachable.
Ya know what, Mr. Speaker? I actually don't feel sorry for you anymore. That you've humiliatingly ceded control of your House to Cruz and his Tea Party henchmen makes you inept and not worthy of your leadership position.
The verdict was in even before the first enrollee inked their signature October 1 on a health care plan under the Affordable Care Act. The law is an unmitigated triumph for the millions of uninsured in America.
A Kickstarter campaign for Ayn Rand? Damn. If that's not evidence of radical change, what is?
