I have a hard time understanding our government; we the people are not without intelligence. The Affordable Care Act is a bad bill. It has an idea that is admirable, but its path to achieving the idea is a wreck.

Setting it on the shelf for a year to work out its problems is a smart idea.

If there is something wrong with the plane, you don’t load it up with people and fly it, because that is an accident waiting to happen. Please set aside your egotistical pride, negotiate with the House, get America up and running and then work out the affordable health care bill intelligently so that it is not a wreck.
