I think it so disturbing that the GOP seems so completely invested in their political agenda which has focused on outright opposition and defiance in the hopes they can undermine President Obama's success in office. In defeating healthcare reform through staunch and steadfast opposition, they hope to be able to catastrophize the Democratic Parties ability to pass meaningful legislation. They'll turn to America in the next election cycle and say "Look! You got your man in office, and he failed to produce anything but a larger deficit!".
It is deplorable, destructive and adolescent to take on political warfare rather than national success in the face of such dire need for reform, not only with healthcare but also financial regulation, foreign policy, and equal rights.
