Most of the Americans are not cognizant of the details of the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare. Instead of supporting their own party leader, the Democrats continue to maintain silence very loudly and the Republicans are strident in their condemnation of the Act. Unfortunately, the taxpayers are caught between the squabbling politicians. Many are even supporting the short-sighted lawmakers even though their actions and words do not show a vestige of interest in taxpayer welfare. It also appears that there is a big element of racism in the consistent attempt to defeat anything the President tries to do. An African American President in the White House is still anathema to many. The media appears to be self serving in delivering only partial truths.
