I thinks this whole health insurance reform “debate” is a deliberate attempt to make people sick of “politics.” The Republicans have always been worried about voters turning out in high numbers. They know a majority of the population identifies with Democratic Party ideals. There was proof in 2008.
Republicans have no positive ideas to improve the nation or politics. Instead, they are going to spend as much time as possible making people sick of politics so they check out from the simplest form of political activism, paying attention.
Fewer people paying attention equals lower voter turnout. Lower voter turnout is a plus for the Republicans at getting their organization and large bankrolls working for them.
It is working. I am sick of seeing the comments on blogs, listening to callers on radio programs or reading about it in the news.
