The title of a recently released Yahoo! article is “How Republicans BLEW their BEST chance to dismantle ObamaCare” (Web-site/URL: http://news.yahoo.com/republicans-blew-best-chance-dismantle-obamacare-113100389.html).
“On Oct. 1 (2013), non-essential functions of the federal government ground to a halt as Republicans dug in against ObamaCare. On the very same day, the health care exchanges created by ObamaCare went live, albeit with a GLITCH-PLAGUED rollout“. Of course, “glitch-plagued” IS NOT good.
Robert Pear of The New York Times wrote: “EARLY HICCUPS with the exchanges — a central piece of the health care law, which allows the uninsured to shop for coverage and obtain federal subsidies — WERE A DEBACLE for the White House. However, the shutdown “OBSCURED WIDESPREAD PROBLEMS” with the law, “giving the administration time to WORK OUT THE KINKS” and there were MANY “kinks”.
“Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) told FOX News“, “We have missed A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY to do something about it (the healthcare law)”. Again Fox News is THE GOP MOUTHPIECE along with NEWSMAX
“Heritage Action CEO Michael Needham, whose group OPPOSED the final fiscal deal, made just that point this week, saying that “almost every member of the House Republican conference, if not ALL of them, IS DEEPLY CONCERNED ABOUT ObamaCare and knows that we have to do something before Jan. 1 (2014) to stop it“. THIS IS EXPECTED (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI), given that the Heritage Action Foundation is a CONSERVATIVE think-tank with former SOUTH CAROLINA senator JIM DEMINT as its president (Web-site/URL: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Heritage_Foundation; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_DeMint).
Finally “In the wake of the shutdown, conservatives have vowed to continue the fight. Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint, in a Wall Street Journal op-ed, wrote that “delaying implementation by withholding funds from a law” like ObamaCare was “a REASONABLE and NECESSARY (?) fight“. This is DEMINT‘s INTERPRETATION (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).
The conclusion to this article is interesting. So, HOW DID “Republicans (blow) their best chance to dismantle Obamacare?” Look no further than THE PHOTO IN THIS ARTICLE. Of course, this is a picture of SARAH PALIN and as we know, whatever Palin says is generally NONSENSE/RIDICULOUS/DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE.
