For 77 years Republicans have pissed and moaned about the Hayekian injustice of Social Security; it's a monstrous insult to all that's divinely ordered--every man and woman for him- or herself. And for 47 years Republicans have pissed and moaned about Medicare; it, too, is a monstrous insult to all that's divinely ordered--basic healthcare just isn't for everyone. Now, Republicans are pissing and moaning about ObamaCare, yet another monstrous but statutorily fixed insult to all that remains divinely ordered--see above.
Yet the NY Times finds Republican Speaker John Boehner's persistent, petulant resistance to ObamaCare not merely objectionable, but apparently unique: "[T]his kind of gamesmanship is an unwelcome reminder of unyielding Republican opposition."
Yes many of us of course find the speaker and his hideous party objectionable. But to single out this particular GOP abomination as though it's particularly abominable--as opposed to the party's periodic but pretty much unremitting pissing and moaning of the last eight decades--makes about as much sense as the Times' redundancy of unyielding Republican opposition.
