Government shutdown over Obamacare is childish

As it stands, I do not think Obamacare is a good, well thought out policy, despite the many hours of effort by lots of folk who have proven that their intellect is well beyond mine.

The Democrats come up with the most wonderful ideas that never get implemented in a way that seems to work well and gets funded on the backs of taxpayers.

Nevertheless, this law, passed the House, the Senate, was signed by the president and even passed the test of constitutionality by the Supreme Court. It is a law just like all the other ones.

If you do not like it, you can change it next time the public votes in your side. Until then, why not spend your time trying to improve it rather than shutting down the government? That is so childish.
