Republicans have only themselves to blame for this. They are trying to run against a program they themselves invented and supported and which was successfully implemented by the candidate they are going to nominate for president. They are trying to say that a program based on their own stated principles of moderate market reform and personal responsibility is somehow nothing but communism and government controlled health care. And, at the same time, they are trying to say that Obama is defunding Medicare, which is in a fact a government run program. Their arguments are twisted, backwards, upside down and plainly ridiculous. It's a wonder any of them can keep it straight. Without their heads exploding.

Hispanics represent 14% of U.S. residents but comprise 30% of the uninsured. The higher uninsured rate for Hispanics is not associated with higher poverty levels than other groups — the poverty rate for Hispanics is slightly lower than for African-Americans, 22.2% vs. 24.9% respectively. Rather, research has shown that Hispanics are more likely to be employed in jobs that do not offer health insurance, such as construction and agriculture (but when offered health insurance they accept at the same rates at whites and blacks)."

Even if that was true, so what?

The Supreme Court ruled Obamacare constitutional as a tax with the pivotal vote of Chief Justice John Roberts, the politician. Despite Obama campaigning it wouldn’t be a tax on the middle class, that’s exactly Obamacare is. According to the Congressional Budget Office, as reported by the Wall Street Journal, “three quarters of those who pay the mandate tax will make less than $120,00 a year” and those people need jobs not more taxes.

Instead of coming out like every other Republican under the sun and agreeing it’s a tax, Mitt Romney’s campaign adviser Eric Fehrnstrom said Romney agreed with...
