Talk about a law that won't get no respect. The President is quietly ignoring the Affordable Care Act's two year anniversary while leaving it to the controversial Ms. Pelosi to apply her unique rhetorical style to its defense. To add insult to injury, the U.S. House has just voted to repeal a signature feature of the law, the Independent Payment Review Commission (IAPB). If the repeal weren't linked to HR 5's medical malpractice reforms, there's a chance that enough of Mr. Obama's Democratic Senate would abandon him and force a Presidential veto.
The late Rodney Dangerfield would have a lot to say.....
"When ACA supporters talk about the ACA, they have to wear two paper bags over their heads... in case one falls off!"
"When the ACA passed, critics said it was unaffordable. It's supporters wanted a second opinion, so that's when the critics said it's unconstitutional too!"
"One ACA supporter told his psychologist that ever since he voted for the ACA, everyone he knows hates him! He said he was being ridculous - not everyone knows that he voted for it!"
