Letter: Obamanos Hillary y Julian Castro por 2016!

The Republicans just lost the White House in the 2016 presidential election. Maybe not in one day, but the SCOTUS decision on Obamacare does not help them. Not one bit. The Democrats have the opportunity to bury those lofty hopes right this minute. Let’s face it.

The Republicans take care of business. Only if it helps them, though. This is a government for the people by the people. Obamacare is for the people and the common good. It also is good for insurance companies. So let’s go, go, go and don’t let up. Let the Republicans try to explain to the common person exactly how they did not help out. How they tried to squash a great idea. Also get on them for wanting to privatize and ruin Social Security, Medicare, the prison system and even terrible school-lunch programs and the education system. For today though, start with this huge, ground-shattering win.
