I don’t know how many articles I’ve started writing about the GOP’s constant push to defund and eliminate Obamacare, and I can’t count the false starts I’ve had trying to figure out how to weigh the pros and cons of the Affordable Care Act, and decide just how beneficial or detrimental it’s going to be to have a government healthcare system in place that’s been written by lobbyists from Big Pharma, the major healthcare insurance companies, and the major banks.
