Minority Republicans using bullylike tactics

Here we go again. During the run-up to the election, when the polls showed Barack Obama ahead, the Republicans said the only poll that counted was the one on Election Day.

Well, their candidate who ran on repealing Obamacare lost, and now the Republicans are saying they are listening to the people by trying to get rid of it.

They have a small majority in the House, which is one-third of the government. The Senate and presidency are held by the Democrats. Please explain to me how one-third should override the other two-thirds.

Blaming the Democrats for a possible government shutdown because they won’t give in to demands is like a bully blaming the victim for a beating because they would not give up their lunch money.
