Last week Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee were the lowest forms of scum on the planet, and that was just what the GOP establishment was saying about them! Democrats went even further calling them arsonists, terrorists, and hostage takers among other things. Why? Because they wanted to defund or delay Obamacare.
Now a week later there are probably enough Democrats leaning towards delaying Obamacare to pass the senate with a majority! You can't make this stuff up. Are these Democrats arsonists, terrorists, and hostage takers? Is a comedian like Jon Stewart, who is the de-facto news anchor for Democrats under 90, also an arsonist and a terrorist? He too has brutally addressed Obamacare pointing out the obvious - it is simply not ready.
Cruz and Lee were arguing, among other things, that Obamacare (Officially the "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act", a name straight out of "Atlas Shrugged"!) had ceased to exist in it's original form. Yes, it had passed on a party-line vote in 2010 and it survived one Supreme Court challenge in 2012, but Barack Obama has unilaterally rewritten it several times since then. The legislature is supposed to rewrite laws under our system, not the executive. Big employers were granted waivers for a year, Congress was given government subsidies in direct opposition to the law, income verification was waived, out-of-pocket caps were waived, and the penalty was rewritten by the SCOTUS as a "tax". Defund or delay was predicated in part on the premise that the passed law no longer existed. That, and the self-evident truth that if the law was ready to implement, Obama himself would not have rewritten it several times! Turns out they were right.
So the good news for Cruz and Lee is that they have been vindicated on that aspect. The science is settled, as they say. The bad news comes via others who came before them and similarly challenged the establishment: recall, Galileo Galilei was put under house arrest for the remainder of his life for asserting that the earth revolved around the sun, in direct opposition to the "establishment" belief that it was the other way around.
