Affordable Care Act should NOT be on the table. Give it a chance to work! Congress should move forward and start resolving other issues.

This was presaged by this op-ed piece by John Boehner, the speaker of the House of Representatives. Apparently, bringing repeal up for a vote over 30 times during this session of Congress did not sufficiently demonstrate the utter pointlessness of this session of Congress.
You know what I want, then? A vote to repeal the resolutions supporting the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. While you’re at it, vote on the resolutions for the Gulf War, the Vietnam War, and the Korean War while you’re at it. Finally, repeal the law that makes the bald eagle the national bird, and replace it with the turkey. The bunch of turkeys in Congress ought to be real comfortable with THAT.
Or, y’know, Congress could move on and solve some other issues. I’ve heard that we have some.
