Support to Repeal Current Health Care Law Declines/ Politicians to Act More Respectful

According to an AP-GFK Poll, only 25 percent of surveyed people support a repeal of the current

“ObamaCare” Law. The Republicans are currently in a rock in a hard place. After the fatal killings that

took place in Arizona, many politicians are trying to change their “tone”. My question for our current legislators is why does it take a shooting of a congressman, for our representatives to act more humane. Obviously, everyone who is in Congress, has some interest in our current government. Even the corrupt politicians are still aware of the amount of influence they have on creating and passing laws.

So why has it been so hard for our politicians to sit down and actually discuss the issues. Part of the reason why “ObamaCare” was due to the strong support from Democrats. Some of which knew they would not win re-election. It was almost a race to the finish line: Who can create a pass a healthcare law first? Without thinking about the influence this law has on America's businesses. They were more worried about carrying out the President's Agenda. When we rush to create laws without thinking them through, what is the true goal? Are the representatives trying to polish their tarnished images?

Are Republicans trying to display themselves as the voice for the unemployed? The main argument many Republicans have been using in order to defy “ObamaCare” is that the healthcare bill will cause many employers to eliminate jobs. That it will work with more of a ripple effect. With Americans showing less concern to repeal the bill, what is the point of fighting it? If Republicans want to make a come back, shouldn't they focus on something that more Americans are concerned about? If the healthcare bill turns out to be a big disaster, then let that destroy the image of the Democrats. The Republicans can sit idly on the side and simply say “ I told you so”.

If we reach the point, where “ObamaCare” is highly disapproved of, then let's work together to repeal the law. Sometimes, people learn best through experience. Hopefully, with this new tone of attitude congressmen are trying to display, they might just decide to move on from the “ObamaCare” issue. They should not let their emotions get the best of them. In order to have emotions and perspectives about various issues, we had to listen to someone. This new civil attitude that is being displayed on Capitol Hill may be for the better good. How long will it last? In the next 6 months, will we forget about everything that has happened thus far and return to normal? Only time can tell.

It is time to focus on some more issues that have yet to be resolved. There is still major debate on whether or not abortion should be legalized. Or how about the debate on Gay Marriage? Or better yet, gun laws? That does not begin to sum up all of the issues we have on our plates.
