Give ACA a fair trial before death sentence

Most people – civilized ones anyway – would agree no person should be condemned to death without a fair trial. But that is exactly what so many otherwise fair-minded, civilized people are doing with the Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare). They’re like a lynch mob in the old West. Sen.

It’s a mutiny staged by bullies. That’s how I would characterize the disgusting behavior by Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives. They have shut down the federal government because they did not get their way – their obsession to kill ObamaCare. Their obstructionist scheme was highlighted last week when Texas Sen. Ted Cruz – Tea Party hero – talked
