Reading this article is a waste of time as this budget will never get anywhere. Republicans need to accept that the Affordable Care Act is now law and work with it. Not keep ignoring something that is established. Everyone knows that by the time there is a Republican president - even if that is in 2016 - it will be too late to do anything about the Affordable Care Act. It's here to stay and the sooner that Republican lawmakers accept that & stop wasting the taxpayers' time & money, maybe they can actually get somewhere. Until then, everything that they do like this is just a joke.
