Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., called on Republicans earlier this week to “change and improve” President Obama’s signature health care law — a significant flip-flop for a guy who not only supported Obamacare’s passage, but also insisted the administration move forward with enforcement even after a federal judge ruled it unconstitutional.
Should Republicans try to put lipstick on this pig?
Red State’s Erick Erickson says, “Hell no.”
Obamacare is a train wreck of epic proportions. It will ruin the economy, drive individuals into full time part time status as employees, harm small businesses, and make Americans more and more dependent on the federal government as slaves to the entitlement state while ballooning our national debt.
The American public voted for Barack Obama twice. They should be made to care about the policy choices they have enabled by having those policies go into effect exactly as the Democrats intended.
There can be no fixing. There can be no tweaking. There should be no delaying. There should only be defunding and repealing of the whole awful mess.
Republicans are under no obligation to mend what they were sent to Washington to end. Instead, let the American public see big government operate as Democrats designed it.
