Republicans Strike Back

Republicans are not going to back down easily. Disappointed in Obama's health care law, the republicans gathered for committee hearings and other events in order to plan to vote against the reform.  With 30 plus efforts to go against the Affordable Health Care act, it can be seen this back and forth battle has been going on for a while. Republicans strike back because of their fear that the health care reform would not be able to contain the rising costs of coverage.

Looking from the Democrats perspective, this debate is becoming repetitive especially after the Supreme court has made its vote. Democrats argue that repealing this issue is a waste of time and tax dollars. One would think after the supreme court has made its decision we could move on to another issue. Actually the opposite occurred, inspire the Republicans to rally for the repeal.

Clearly everything will have its pros and cons. We live in a world where we have to take the good with the bad. The federal law may hinder the doctor to patient relationship. Some worry that the actual quality will become less efficient. The wealthy will be taxed more and feel others will get health off their money.

These are fair accusations to fight against, but at the end of the day what will be the real result. I'm all for fighting for what you believe in, but how much progress will happen by taking steps backwards. It seems like the process is just becoming drawn out, a decision must be made in order for progress. If I was wealthy I would not want a large amount of my money taking out my check, but rather that than be denied health care when I'm ill. Even though the Obamacare may have notable flaws, it does give benefits to millions to those who otherwise wouldn't have had them. Eventually a decision must be made based on the greater good, understand there will be bad to go along with it.
