I understand that this might be a new concept for our elected officials, but what part of “We the people” do they not get? In 2009 a Gallup poll said that 80% of people were satisfied their healthcare and 60% were satisfied with their insurance. Despite all of those numbers, democrats decided to overhaul our healthcare system. This was done strictly along political and party lines and even though the American people told these democrats politicians in town hall meetings to “LEAVE OUR HEALTH CARE ALONE!” Nobody listened, and in spite of all the negative responses from the American people, the Affordable Care Act was passed. Not one single Republican voted for it. Obviously, they heard the people when they said “No” to Obamacare.
What part of the term “Public Servant” do Democrats not comprehend? It should have been very simple to understand that a majority of Americans did not want some idiot politician messing around with their health care. However, during the last 5 years we have had a complete and utter breakdown in communication between the “public” and the “public servants.” It’s like we’re all speaking different languages. And to add insult to injury, we were lied to, not once, not twice, but dozens of times about this whole sorted mess. Maybe I’m the one that doesn’t get it, but I thought that if politicians wanted my vote, they’re supposed to kiss my butt, not the other way around. Now we are being told to “lean forward,” bend over and grab our ankles and just take it, because they know what’s best for us. I’m sorry, but that doesn’t work for me…not at all!
