Repeal Republican Rhetoric on Obamacare

Dear Republican Senators and Representatives,

Congress passed it.

The President signed it.

The Supreme Court upheld it.

And you still talk about repealing it?

What does this say about your respect for the three branches of government and the inherent checks and balances that our founding fathers handed down to us?  I understand that the ACA is not perfect.  Heck, I am sure there are parts of it that downright suck.  That doesn't mean we should tear down legislation that survived the scrutiny of all three branches of our government.

The battle over Obamacare is over.  Instead of retreading old, and obviously ineffective, arguments against health care reform, show us how Obamacare can be made better.  Give us something to support instead of something to oppose.  I know for fact that moderates support solutions a lot more than your endless stream of anti-Obama rhetoric.

If you want the moderate vote in November, I suggest you give us solutions worth supporting. If you want four more years of President Obama and a do nothing Congress, continue to oppose health care reform, and the system of government that approved it.
