Rep. Allen West (R-FL) says there's a lot to like in Obamacare.
Liberal ThinkProgress has a video of West saying so.
Huffington Post has reported the same in early April. But word didn't spread to conservative outlets. Why not?
If Allen West speaks for the Tea Party Republicans, does anyone still think the GOP is serious about repealing Obamacare? West makes it sound like Republican intent may be to slap some lipstick on is, call in something else, and carry it forward.
Even if Republicans score big wins in November, don't expect them to significantly change the course the country's on. November's ballot increasingly looks like a choice between Status Quo Party D and Status Quo Party R. What we need is a Shake It Up Party.
