Since the recent Supreme Court case that failed to kill off Obamacare, many conservatives I know seem on the brink of suicide themselves. They believe that Obamacare is horrible law; something that will harm our nation's finances, our healthcare system - and intrude where it ought not in our personal lives.
I agree with them.
But where I do not agree with them is their notion that this is the worst decision ever - and that it is irrevocable. As David Brooks well puts it - if you don't like something, then fix it yourself.
Hostility toward the Supreme Court has risen sharply since Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. upheld the Obama health care law. People are apparently angry that the court didn’t rid them of a law they detest. But that’s silly. If Americans want to replace this thing, they should do it themselves.
As for the liberals who say that conservatives don't have a plan - sorry; false. Read the whole Brooks column. Perhaps there is a whisper of a chance, should you be liberal, you'll realize how horrific this law truly is. And - even if you don't, perhaps you will see that Republicans don't all just sit around complaining - some of them actually are attempting to come up with cogent, worthwhile alternatives to Obamacare that are indeed far superior.
In any case - quit complaining. Whether you're a politician or a doctor or just one of the great unwashed - you can play a role to improve our society. Just do it.
