POV | Time for Grownups To Take Back Washington (10/15/13)

Most Americans do not like Obamacare.  More than 60%.  I get it.  There is a lot about it I don't like either. 

The Tea party saw an opportunity to make one more big play to kill it by playing the biggest card of all possible cards:  Shutting down the government itself.  They took over the Republican Party and forced the GOP to join them in this huge game of chicken.  It didn't work and now the entire country is absolutely fed up with everyone in Washington – Republican and Democrats. 

It is now time for the grownups in the Republican party to take back control.  I'm talking to Senator Mitch McConnell and Congressman Boehner.  Take back the Republican party, admit taking the government hostage didn't work, and let's focus on the important stuff.  Like getting the government back to work.  Obamacare is far, far from perfect but it is going to happen. 

Get over it.  Don't take the country down out of a matter of pride and ego.  Admit you lost this one and move on.  Obamacare is not important enough to risk sacrificing the reputation and financial stability of our country.  There are too many people depending on our government to function.  Knock off the crap and stop playing games with our government. 

Call us and tell us what you think. 

I'm Bill Lamb and that's my Point of View.
