Voters sick and tired of health care debate

Washington (CNN) - Thomas Dean is sick of all the congressional bickering over the health care law.

Sure, the small town doctor understands the law's technical nuances and what's at stake for the millions of people covered by President Barack Obama's biggest policy achievement.

    What a waste of taxpayer money. we pay for them to get results. The law can be tweaked just as all other laws can be when need be. Move on.

    So Boehner and friends have now voted 31 times to repeal Obama care, umpteen times to restrict womens' rights to control their own bodies, and many times on stuff as stupid as reaffirming that "In God We Trust" is our national motto (when no one was disputing it).

    Didn't they campaign on jobs, jobs, jobs??? Don't reply that they have sent several bills to the Senate, because the bills they sent all had provisions that they know would make them objectionable. They are not trying to pass legislations for jobs or almost anything else. It's almost 100% political grandstanding – at a time of crisis in our country. Send Boehner and the GOP idiots, especially the Tea Party, home. Vote for problem solving and common sense.

    This is what the American People deservingly get for voting in the bloodsucker GOP / Tea Party Radicals into the majority of the House. A COMPLETE BUNCH OF THUGS IN THE HOUSE WASTING US TAXPAYERS' TIME AND MONEY VOTING TO REPEAL OBAMACARE JUST SO THAT BOTH THE DEMOCRATIC CONTROLLED SENATE & DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENT COULD DROP IT OFF THEIR RADAR !!!! GIVE ME A BREAK !!!! We need to VOTE ONE PARTY TO CONTROL THE WHITE HOUSE, HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES & US SENATE !!!! AND IF YOU'RE NOT WEALTHY LIKE DONALD TRUMP OR BILL GATES – VOTE DEMOCRATIC !!!!

    Deal. But, I regret to inform you that you have now been banned from the conservative movement. Not only did you compromised, but you raised taxes.

    If you voted for a republican, you voted for a domestic terrorist who poses more of a threat to the United States than any Taliban idiot.

    The facts people, read the facts of the Affordable Care Act and do your math. All your insults, arguing, blah blah blah, is not going to change the mathematics of the Affordable Care Act and its impact on each one of us. Democrats can do math, yes?????
