NewsReel 7/10/13 - Meet The Anti-ObamaCare-Pro-Shutdown Republicans

[ Masterweb Reports: Dr. James C. Agazie reports ] -  What’s wrong with the Republicans?  They’re being taught by Nigerian politicians. Make no mistake about this, and don’t kid yourself. Mr. Barack Hussein Obama, who has been duly elected to a second 4-year term in office as President and Chief Executive Officer of the United States, is being forced by recalcitrant Republicans to abandon the mandate the people have given him. Like Nigerian politicians, the Republicans are not well-behaved. They are noncompliant, rebellious, and dissenting. 


Recalcitrant is a better choice of words. To be recalcitrant is to be unruly, intractable, refractory, disobedient, wayward, headstrong, and obstinate. This brings to mind my experience as Headmaster of a primary school in West Africa. My students were absolutely as unmanageable as the Republicans President Obama  is dealing with. Why? My primary school children were obstreperous and cantankerous as the Republicans in that they were hostile, bad-tempered, quarrelsome, argumentative, aggressive, or fractious.


Do you need a description of these Republicans Americans and Obama are now dealing with? Aren’t  the Republicans confrontational and more interested in wielding oppressive power over the American people than they are in running  a government that is fair, transparent, equitable and unbiased? Do they remind you of our lackadaisical or apathetic Nigerian politicians?  just as my primary school pupils were spending more time skipping classes than being in class to practice their reading.’riting, and ‘rithmatics , the Republicans of the Grand Old Party are abdicating their responsibility to the American people.


            My primary school  pupils enjoyed being away from classes most of the time. And where were they? Some were on farms planting cassava for the benefit of cash-strapped Papa and Mama. Some were wading in River Okponkwu trapping cat fish to supplement family dinner. Others had climbed into stout mango trees around my classroom to shake down barely ripe fruits.  While my pupils were skipping classes in order to help their families, the Republicans ostensibly went about crippling the economy and down-trodden Americans just to serve special-interest Corporation whose lobbies yield millions of ill-gotten dollars.


            If this doesn’t remind you of bribery paid to Nigerian politicians, you need a special crash course on political corruption Nigerian style. Both Nigerian politicians and their US Republican counterparts have a lot in common. Republicans deny their people basic insurance coverage and decent jobs. Nigerian politicians deny their people healthful living, roads, drinking water, and freedom from darkness. Which politicians are worse than the other? You be the judge.  


WHAT IS OBAMACARE? Obamacare is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. The name was created by critics of President Obama’s efforts to reform health care.  America is one of the shocking countries where the poor and average person like you and I are not considered human enough to have good health services provided by hospitals and competent physicians. We might as well die at home or on the floor of hospitals which deny us service because we are not politicians with millions of dollars of insurance coverage. Politicians, both Nigerians and Republicans, do not suffer extraordinary ill health because they can afford the best available medical treatment  money provided by taxpayers can buy.   


WHAT IS GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN? A government shutdown is a situation in which the government stops providing all but "essential" services. A government shutdown is similar to a lockout in the private sector. The US federal government enters a shutdown on October 1 2013 of  those services considered “non-essential as a result of political conflicts  between President Obama, the Democratic - controlled Senate, and the Republican-controlled House of representatives. The conflict centers on funding for and implementation of the Affordable Care Act popularly known as the Obamacare. The 2014 federal fiscal year begins on October 1, 2013, which is also the date many of the Affordable Care Act provisions went into effect. The health insurance exchanges provided by the Affordable Csre Act are scheduled to begin in October, 2013.


WHY DO REPUBLICANS WANT A GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN? They do not empathize with the pains of the common man, and appear to be selfish, and blasé. A blasé person thinks he is cool but is in actuality,  unconcerned,   unmoved, relaxed,  carefree, offhand, nonchalant. That’s the nature of the Grand Old Party of the presidencies of Reagan and the Bushes.
