  1. To use colorful ‘political’ language, I’m beginning to think that the Republicans couldn’t lose their virginity in a whorehouse!

    Really, why should anyone believe that they can repeal Obamacare, on the promise that they “might” pass a constructive replacement in 2 years? What evidence do we have that this administration has the organizational capability, the will and the ideological cohesiveness to do that?

There are enough Minimal Government/Low Taxes believers on the Right that would think that “nothing” is the ideal outcome. Once they have that they will fight any Obamacare replacement, no matter who proposes it or what it contains.
