The GOP’s Obamacare chutzpah

The newest GOP tactic to end Obamacare? Let people keep their old policies. You know, the ones that are renewed each year, and cancelled when you use them? The ones that don’t cover anything.

Another talking point you are hearing these days is that Obamacare forces men to pay for maternity care. I guess men just make them. Is it a woman’s duty to do the  rest?

The classic definition of chutzpah is the child who kills his parents and then asks for leniency because he’s an orphan. But in recent weeks, we’ve begun to see the Washington definition: A party that does everything possible to sabotage a law and then professes fury when the law’s launch is rocky.

On Tuesday, Rep. Paul Ryan became the latest Republicans to call for HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to step down because of the Affordable Care Act’s troubled launch. “I do believe people should be held accountable,” he said.
