I think that many Americans are distracted. I recently viewed a Conservative Super PAC ad that told Americans to ask President Obama to repeal the Obamacare tax because Americans are already struggling and cannot afford additional taxation. Don't people realize that- if the free market is working- and I'm not sure that it is- the cost of healthcare will go down and the level of coverage will go up as a result of the Affordable Care Act. They will struggle less. And the only ones that will pay this tax are those few, very few Americans, that can afford health insurance and don't buy it. 99.9% of Americans will pay no additional tax, nada, zip, but will maintain the same or get better coverage.
Romney and the forces behind the Reactionary movement live lifestyles that make it impossible for them to comprehend that a few thousand dollars per year makes the difference between making it and not making it for many, too many, American families. And the Republican vision of America, Going Backwards, is designed to ensure that someone from humble beginnings, through hard work and merit, someone like President Obama, cannot ever become president.
We all must take care of our families and work, and find gratification and contentment in our lives. But we should not forget, no matter how painful it is, that these Republicans ran a witch and a woman that told people to consider taking a chicken to the doctor as a form of payment, for the Congress of the United States. Though I doubt that it will do any good, it might be fun to ask Romney if his healthcare plan has a proviso for payment with goods and services including live poultry. And, also, if Wicca is compatible with fundamentalist Christianity?
