In the aftermath of the Supreme Court decision, Republican leaders have howled for the repeal of Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and its replacement by a plan that sounds suspiciously like ...um, Obamacare. On this topic, Representative Phil Roe (R-TN) says, “It would be hard to write a 2,700-page bill and not have something in there that you like.” This post from ThinkProgress provides a useful compendium of Republican statements on the good bits in the ACA. We're still waiting for a realistic Republican proposal regarding Obamacare's replacement.
The poet William Stafford set himself the task of writing a poem a day. When someone asked him what he would do when his poem-of-the-day wasn't very good, he replied "I simply lower my standards." In order to increase output, the bar here is set at a low level - the point of this is to have some fun with current events and politics. I welcome contributions and comments. Now you can also follow Doggerelo on Twitter (@doggerelo). Because of continuing medical problems, I'm no longer able to post a poem-a-day. I'll continue to post poems, but at a reduced frequency, so please stay tuned.
