The Republicans effort to “repeal and replace Obamacare” has again faltered. But they will keep trying as they have no choice. “We said we’re gonna do it, so we gotta do it,” they whisper to each other for this is a key element in their “party of no” identity.
Identity politics works like that. Identity politics is only about ideas and disallows any long-range plan like, “What does the country need us to focus on right now?” This lunacy over Obamacare could easily be resolved by “tinkering” with the matter and resolving the problems that are present and putting the matter behind them. But that would deprive them of the “fun” they are having by stewing in their own juices and imperiling the welfare of the country at the same time.
Congress is demonstrating the lunacy of our collective psyche once again. They have no “purpose” other than maintaining electability so that the power grid that they are part of can be maintained. And some of them have the audacity to claim passionate religious faith when actually the only thing they actually bow to and worship each day of their life is, “How do I vote on this matter so that I will please my constituency and get re-elected?” And our nation still claims to be a “Christian nation” when, if you look closely, our true “lord and savior” is ruthless capitalism and consumerism. Of course, the best illustration of our lunacy is our fearless leader. His presence speaks for itself.
