Really, AP? Not even a mention of the Benghazi email?
Are you sure that many will ever be able to sign up for it? I'm not. The first two weeks of it have been a massive blow to the confidence of even supporters of the law. This dependency argument is the boogeyman that conservatives scare themselves with to convince themselves that Obamacare won't be as bad as we fear. And thus they throw themselves into meaningless fights that accomplish nothing other than to make themselves feel good while everyone else gets annoyed and angry with them.
This entire piece is just a way of saying that Obamacare will not be the disaster we Republicans believe it will be. Entitlement? It certainly won't be viewed as such as insurance premiums continue to rise for the vast majority of people, as hospital wait times grow larger due to doctor and other healthcare worker shortages, as people are unable to even sign up or find a suitable health plan. Mr. McCarthy is a faithless moron who doubts the central premise of his own outrage. So he would trade the real possibility of a legislative victory in favor of a show fight doomed to failure from the start. There was, from the beginning, zero possibility of defunding this putrid legislation at this time. Waging this stupid fight now has put at risk the possibility of retaking the senate which would have given Republicans REAL bargaining power rather than making us all look like clowns. This is the stupid party in full self-destruct mode.
