No doubt there are Utahns who are proud of the stand for principle being demonstrated by our Sen. Mike Lee. But many other Utahns, like myself, are embarrassed. These stands for principle may have a noble motive, but they seem to be a foolish and hopeless exercise, with no possible good outcome. It’s very hard to achieve anything good by being against everything, and not for anything achievable.
Yes, many Americans dislike Obamacare, including me. But a large majority like some features of it and will continue to demand them. Almost all would support some changes. So instead of threatening the very life of the Republican Party with the destructive extremism of no, no, no, why don’t conservative Republicans and Democrats get busy proposing needed changes in the law?
