Health Care and The 112th - Nothing to See Here. Move Along.

You would think Republicans have nothing else to do,
(Roads and housing, tax reform, or jobs - to name a few).
Why else would they spend the day re-fighting ACA
When they still don't have a plan that's better anyway?

Yet the Congress wonders why approval ratings stink.
When folks see a silly stunt like this we tend to think;
What a total waste of time. Why can't we just move on?
Is there hope for compromise? Are all the chances gone?

Work on something you can pass...  And watch that fiscal cliff.
Wall Street doesn't do well when it's dealing with "What if?"
That creates uncertainty against which bankers hedge.
Congress still keeps pushing us right to the very edge.

Last time that they did this country's credit rating fell...
Meanwhile, they're re-legislating health care for us. Swell.
Isn't there a single issue where both sides agree,
Or will they just spend the summer barking up a tree? 


  1. Thanks for taking the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love learning more on this topic. If possible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more information? It is extremely helpful for me.

    1. Glad I could be helpful but an expert I am not.
      Just a fool with symptoms from a bug I went and got.
      Though I do love politics I don't pretend to know
      Why it is that change can seem to be so hard and slow.

      Thanks for taking the time to drop a note,
      Mrs. Smeej
