Jon Stewart’s trenchant take on the insanity of the US Republicans trying to strong-arm a valid law out of existence. Oh, they all tub-thump and proclaim themselves ‘Christians’. I doubt that Jesus would recognize their interpretations. They wrap themselves in the Stars and Stripes when it comes to keeping their guns, but for poor and middle class folks to have access to reasonably priced medical care, oh no, that’s not allowed. Yet, the Treasury can print trillions of dollars of worthless paper to prop up a diseased economy. I fear the days of the US being a valued opinion-leader and world power are done. Other countries own their debt and, by extension, their assets. Their elected leaders seem to have no clue. This is democracy that the world should emulate? Surely Americans deserve much better.

Shameful. Despotic. Sad.
