What does this quote even mean (see details)?
The quote is: “We will not be disrespected. We have to get something out of this.And I don’t know what that even is.”
(additional emphasis mine).
The person quoted is Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-Ind., quoted in an article in the Washington Examiner.
The government is shut down, but the Affordable Care Act is alive and thriving. More than 6,000,000 folks visited healthcare.gov the day it opened, and another 200,000 called the call center.
Is this really about the health care act? Or is this a small faction of the Republican party failing to face the political reality that they lost an election?
