I understand that hardball is played in Washington politics, but the Democrats want it both ways. That sort of rhetoric doesn't invite intelligent discussion about issues, and the problems with the Affordable Care Act desperately need a reasoned remedy. Out of the millions who have had their insurance canceled, there are undoubtedly families who are facing major health problems. What do they do once the cancellation takes effect? They need a real fix, not the president's political fix, which shifts the blame to the insurance companies.
