Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Rebulicans VS the health of America and Women's rights.....the show goes on....and on....and on......I bet as Obama vetoes this he will shake his head for the memory of his mother and everyone else that has dealt with the horror and family tragedy of having to figure out how to pay medical bills as a love one goes through the costly act of dying.....or just being ill. I think that is an imagine he and many others think of when they think about Republican Virtues of Selfishness....the Ayn Rand Morality their leader Paul Ryan says we need. I think the GOP needs to given a boot and handed some shoe strings in all the upcoming elections and told to drag their tax payer funded private education charter school plans out the door with them. They have worked long enough for the extremely wealthy to undermine the average worker and their families. The only way to please the GOP is to give them free rains to set everything we and the rest of the world does up to enshrine the rich and ensure they rule the world and lord over us so that all our working days glorify and empower their selfish desires.....that is the Atlas Shrugged world they seek.....end on story..... Wake Up America they have said it in plain English over and over.
