Good article. I agree with most of the comments below. David Wooten especially — perfect.
Republicans have spent decades obstructing many policies that would benefit citizens because they have only one issue — lowering taxes on the wealthy thereby keeping white wealthy males dominant.
Democrats, however, allowed this battle to occur by not advertising (until now) how many people actually benefited from ACA — while the Republicans over-advertised the comparatively few that did not. This whole mess is a monumental failure due to our entire legislature mis-handling and forgetting why they are in office — and who they are working for.
