When does the revolution* start? So over anti-democracy anarchists.
We had an election. You lost by 5 million votes. You are behaving like dysfunctional brats.
“You don’t get to hold the entire economy, the entire country, hostage, because you don’t like the outcome of the election,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren correctly said about Tea Party Congresspersons — henceforth known as Congressional Terrorists.
The Affordable Care Act was passed by both houses of Congress, signed into law by President Obama, was given the American People’s’ endorsement by President Obama’s resounding electoral victory and seat pick ups in the House and Senate in 2012, and was upheld by the US Supreme Court.
Every branch of the government has spoken, as have American voters.
Despite this, a dangerous and menacing wing of the Republican Party serves as puppet master over a weak and ineffective Speaker John Boehner, bringing the US Government to a grinding halt. As a result, 800,000 federal employees are placed on furlough and one million are asked to work for no pay.
This is the price the Tea Party (American Taliban) believes is acceptable for the country to pay to appease their fundamentalist beliefs that destruction is progress and that democracy only counts when it’s their opinions and options considered.
We no longer deserve democracy if citizens don’t metaphorically* storm congress and remove all Tea Party members’ power and effectively make those seats vacant. US citizens should take control now and reinforce their electoral voices by raising their voices, since elections are clearly not respected and clearly have no weight of their own. Rather than voting and expecting our representatives to civilly and respectfully do our — The People’s — business, is this our only hope of expelling the Congressional Terrorists?
No concern is in the thoughts of these congressional terrorists about the lives they are illegitimately harming. That said, worse on a larger point is that this behavior of Tea Party Terrorists is paralyzing democracy.
You know what, difference of opinion is great, so are strong and vocal opinion (that captures me), but what is wrong is when you halt the course of the nation’s business and say it’s the will of the American People. For God sake, we just had a multi-billion dollar national election. If The American People hated the American Care Act as much as the subversives hate it and Obama, then they would have spoken their voices at the election polls. What happened, instead?
Obama won a second term with a massive electoral margin. Democrats picked up more seats in the Senate. And Democrats picked up more seats in the House (this after a hugely gerrymandered redistricting around the nation based upon the latest census and favors Republicans). The American People spoke alright, and they endorsed the President and gave Dems more seats in government.
To act as they do now, radical conservatives want to nullify a ten month old national election.
The Tea Party Terrorists and the Republican Party are anti-democracy.
This point of contention has nothing to do with opinions or whether the ACA is good or bad.
