that “if we’re able to stop Obama on this, it will be his Waterloo. It will break him.”
TPJ: Senator Jim DeMint is underlining what many of us have thought for along time--the Republicans on Capital Hill don't really care about health care reform in any form. They have been portrayed as the "Party of No" due to opposing nearly everything that Obama has tried to do from the start. I knew that total and compete opposition was to be the tone from the GOP when in those first few days John Boehner told his members to vote against the package before even listening to what Obama had to say.
They aren't sincere partners on health care or much of anything for that matter. The Republicans have an unhealthy obsession with Barack Obama. They despise him so much that they want to defeat him on anything and everything regardless of what effect it might have for our country. The Republican party have decided to stand with the big health insurance companies, big corporate interests and their obsession for political games against the health of the American people. I think the president responded to his critics in Congress from both the Republicans and from Conservative Democrats best:
"On Monday, Obama responded, quoting DeMint’s line word for word. “Think about that. This isn’t about me. This isn’t about politics. This is about a health care system that is breaking America’s families, breaking America’s businesses and breaking America’s economy. And we can’t afford the politics of delay and defeat when it comes to health care, not this time, not now.”
