First Slice 8/30/13: Republicans think ruining ObamaCare is hilarious

Greg Best is leaving Holeman & Finch Sept. 7.

Georgia Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens has come right out and told everyone what we pretty much knew was happening with ObamaCare already: Republicans are doing "Everything in our power to be an obstructionist," he giddily revealed.

"If ObamaCare is the looming disaster that he and other Republicans claim it will be, wouldn't it be wiser to simply step back and let it fail on its own lack of merits?" asks Bookman. Sure, but then Hudgens wouldn't get to laugh in our faces.
