Unconscionable and un-American

The United States is the only industrialized nation in the world that does not provide health care for its citizens. We have enough money for guns and weaponry to blow up the entire planet, but nothing for so many dying because they can't afford health care. The richest country in the world.

Ever since Obama took office Republicans' sole mission is to destroy him. Now they are spending billions on destroying his health care law with scare tactics like saying there will be death panels and you won't be able to choose your own doctor. Distorting the truth by saying Americans don't want this; they forget there was an election and people voted for him and his policies including Obamacare. The American people and all three branches of government approved this law.

The latest threat the government shut down. This type of extortion and obstructionism is unacceptable in a democracy.

Contrary to Republican lies, Obamacare will save money. When everyone has insurance the pool will be larger, there will be more competition between insurance companies, and people will stop going to emergency rooms that government pays for. Also if someone gets a catastrophic illness, insurance companies will not be able to refuse them insurance or drop them if they already have insurance. Children can now remain on their parent's health insurance until the age of 26. Who could be against this?

I find the destructive actions of Republicans unconscionable, un-American and un-Christian.
