The House Republicans who approved the invasion of Iraq that cost America a trillion dollars, the lives of 4,000 U.S. troops and 100,000 Iraqi civilians, now say that ObamaCare, which saves lives, costs too much.

They are willing to wait 20 years to find out if history will vindicate George Bush’s decision to invade Iraq, but they are not willing to wait one day to find out if Barack Obama’s use of Mitt Romney’s health plan design is as good for the nation as it is for the state of Massachusetts.

Their hatred of the first black president is so fierce that in order to stop ObamaCare, they have shut down the government and are willing to risk destruction of the U.S. and world’s economy by refusing to raise the U.S. debt ceiling.

The Democrats, whenever they controlled the House and disapproved of Republican-sponsored legislation, never resorted to such tactics.
