The real issue that Republicans have with Obamacare is not the increases in premiums and deductibles nor that insurance companies are leaving the market; it is that they are ideologically opposed to government-provided Healthcare. But, unfortunately for them, the general population loves the idea of healthcare being a right; which leaves them in a particularly difficult position where they can’t risk simply repealing it, or they would incense their own voters to the point where they’d probably take a bigger L than the Golden State Warriors in the midterm elections. In a sense, the Republican party is in political limbo, divided between those who are reluctantly faithful to their Obamacare and their constituents for the sake of their political careers; and those who are religiously faithful to their ideology and their billionaire donors.
It goes without saying that men tend to make inappropriate, insensitive, and chauvinistic sexual comments about women. However, Trump’s “Grab her by the p***y”comments are far worse. Because as severely uncouth and offensive as men can be when talking about women; men do not joke about sexual assault. And what is even more deplorable in Trump’s case; what makes this comparison a case of false equivalency, is that Trump wasn’t joking.
