The Affordable Health Care Act is the law of the land, introduced by a president twice elected by a substantial majority of voters, approved by Congress after a great deal of compromise, declared constitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court, and surviving every effort to emasculate it.

For an oligarch of Obama-hating Republicans to hold the federal government hostage in order to derail “Obamacare” is one of the most scurrilous and scandalous anti-democratic acts in U.S. history – and that’s saying a lot.
