    Its the fact that its in place is what the accomplishment is, not specifically whats in it or what the concept was. Obamacare is a scaffolding awaiting what is determined through time to be effective to fill it.

Maybe that’s why they seem to always shoot themselves in the foot, they would diverge from the set power structure in the country? And that’s why they are so threatened by the Tea Party?
