Time to move on
The Kaiser Family Foundation has been polling the public regarding reaction to last week's Supreme Court ruling on the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act. Guess what they found? It seems that most people (56%) are ready to move on. They believe that opponents of the law should stop trying to overturn it and start addressing other burning issues facing the country.
So now I guess we can expect the Republican Tea Party to stop throwing its hissy fit and move on to things like shoring up our decaying infrastructure; creating jobs to help pull the economy out of its depression; finally acknowledging and taking steps to slow the heating up of the planet; creating more effective oversight of Wall Street and financial institutions; working to make sure that the food and drugs consumed by Americans are safe; providing more and better support for the public school system in this country; working to protect the rights of voters and to ensure that everyone who is eligible to vote is encouraged to do so; and any of the other myriad of problems that face the nation. We can expect that, right? Right?
