Red States creating 90%++ of new jobs, wonder why...
Health care costs were rising way too fast, but they were being fed by scare tactics of the federal government, aided in the quest for increased profits by federal government regulations and political power moves.
There were any ways to lower health care costs in this country without the mystery, political maneuvering and lying of ObamaCare. Congress, particularly the Democratic Party didn't want to take the time to find the changes they should have discover several years ago. That would say publicly that we haven't been doing our jobs and there is little political advantage in angering some of our biggest supporters.
ObamaCare is extreme overkill and the Democrats used it more the crush rising Republican power than anything. They needed a big hammer and Pelosi stepped right up swinging even to go so far as to claim we had to do this so we could see what it is we did. That was real show of political arrogance and ignorance.
Congress has not effectively doing their jobs for decades and spend all their time blaming the other guys and never looking for the best solutions because they might find one that points to the fact their Party is on the wrong side of the argument.
