    I have my fingers crossed and hope against hope he does not survive.

  2. Tom H. says:

    What does “not survive” mean? That the election goes so badly for him that he publicly recants, gives a Jimmy Swaggart-like confession speech –tears and all — and then resigns?

    It almost brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it.

    Great visual image, Tom. Can’t qait to see it.

    The 2,000+ page Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was not well thought out. It was more of a political initiative by Progressives, who favor a more “equitable” health care system than a viable solution to solve the problems that plague our health care system. I just hope that voters do not forget between now and November — lest they ultimately get stuck with other people’s preferences to the exclusion of their own.

    Rumor is Republicans are beginning to back off repeal. Where are their backbones? They ought jump on those poll numbers and carry the message proudly through every election until it is repealed. There are so many better alternatives to Obamacare that NCPA’s John Goodman has detailed here.

    I’m pessimistically optimistic.
