This is not a serious attempt to stop Obamacare

The House vote to defund and the Cruz non-filibuster are not really about stopping Obamacare. It is all about putting on a show for an angry conservative electorate. It is just sad that so many people so entertained by the show and don't see it for what it is. At the end of the day, when Obamacare is still the law of the land, nothing will have been changed.

Remember how Senator Barack Obama voted against raising the debt ceiling? Why did he do that? It is because that is what the electorate wanted and he knew the debt ceiling would be raised anyhow. It was a show. It was fake. That is what the Republicans are doing RIGHT NOW.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.
