So Obamacare is the "law of the land"...well, so was slavery at one point, but that doesn't make it right

Defeatist Republicans (including Speaker of the House John Boehner and Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake, among others) have been saying that since Obamacare is now the law of the land, well, gee, what can they do to stop it? If Americans of all races had had this attitude in decades past instead of fighting immoral laws on the books, slavery (a la Dred Scott) and legalized discrimination (Plessy v. Ferguson) would still be "the law of the land."

Since Republicans in the Senate and some in the House as well are refusing to grow a pair and fight Obamacare's implementation, it's up to us. The number for the Capitol Hill switchboard is (202) 224-3121 and the number for the White House is (202) 456-1414. Give them a much-deserved earful.
