Republicans are ready to Destroy America to "save" It

Are the Republicans just playing a game of political brinksmanship vis-a-vis the Affordable Care Act?

Or are they willing to hurt thousands of Americans and shut down the Government over the implementation of Obamacare?

The Government is no longer of the People, by the People and for the People but responds to the desires and whims of the Ultra-Elite and uber-entitled Plutocracy.

The 1% don't make anything in this country anymore. They are the true definition of "Capitalists" in as much as they make money from their Capital in the form of legerdemain, accounting gimmicks and outright deception.

The Super Rich have destroyed the Progressive Government of Teddy Roosevelt, FDR, Ike and LBJ and have installed the Ultra-Reactionary Government of Saint Ronnie Raygun, Slick Willie and George W(orst President Ever) Bush.

In such a government Republican crotch-sniffing watchdogs of the 1% can vote to eliminate SNAP while they themselves receive millions in taxpayer "assistance" for their farms.

Now, the 1% have to fight to make their Financial Exploitation of the Nation legal. A Government shutdown might put a short term small dent in their portfolios but will drive many Americans to outright destitution and penury. Eliminating the ACA will bankrupt thousands of Americans and cost many their chance for healthcare coverage.

If the Republicans in the House and Senate really think that Obamacare is Tyranny and a Government Shutdown would, as Senator Marco Rubio put present,
"a major opportunity to save our people from the job-killing disaster that is Obamacare"
then the Tea Party Republicans would simply allow the ACA to be fully implemented and as the Death Panels were being convened use the youtube videos of dying Americans to Impeach President Obama.

But, the Republicans task from their Plutocratic Masters is to continue pulling the wool over the eyes of the duped and battered conservative voter so that they blithely participate in the theft of the blessings of liberty won for themselves and our posterity.

Because the Job of Republicans in Government is to ensure wealth continues to trickle upwards and accumulate in the Off-Shore Bank Accounts of the 1%.

Let them shut down the government. I mean! Close everything down! VA hospitals, control towers, the Border Patrol - idle it all!
And, the watch the shit storm that causes in 2014.

the problem is the Rich don't mind if that happens with their Billions tucked away, control of the Stock Market, gated off communities with Blackwater Paramilitary guards they feel they are inured from harm and when the dust settles and the Working Class has been torn asunder they will swoop in buy up everything cheap and strengthen their stranglehold.

Sad to say, they will probably do it. What's worse is no one I talk to even knows what's going on and why. They are bewildered and too caught up in trying to make ends meet than to pay attention to what goes on in DC. Which is exactly the way the 1% want it.
This is eerily like it as before the union movement took hold, because people were being worked to death. Sadly, until we fight back. and it's going to be ugly, nothing will stop these Republicans.

Given that the House has voted to cut Foof Stamps by several billion dollars, I'd say they are willing to hurt thousands of Americans...again!

I oppose the ACA, but agree that it should continue as passed, so it can be a proven failure.

Patricia, JC and CI,

With their focus on cutting programs used by poor and working class Americans it sure seems they are terrified the ACA will not in fact fail but will be a success and remove some of the fear of getting sick in America.

Of course, if the Republicans had actually proposed something then maybe it could be believed that Republicans aren't just trying to grind 99% of Americans into a state of Wage Slavery and Penury.
