Obamacare Isn't Like Slavery, Tea Tax Maybe

There no doubt that Obamacare isn't perfect. It's pretty bad. And the implementation is even worse. But the GOP comparison of the law that is changing the social and economic landscape of the United States to slavery makes no sense.

I understand the economic argument of this but already workers have lost economic freedom through decades of the vast majority wealth in America concentrated in the hands of a tiny minority.

This social problem is at the root of social and economic problem in America. The short-sighted attempts to defund and delay Obamacare just had been a waste of time and only served to increase the anger and dismay of the American people. And worse, the government shutdown and increasing likelihood of an American default underlines just how out of whack Washington is.

The long-term problems of the country continue to get kicked down the street.

No. This is not about slavery. This is more about being held hostage to party politics and where American big businesses and special interests play out their games.
