“Rather than focus on improving the healthcare reform bill, opponents in Congress have tried to repeal it through the legislative process, the electoral process and the judicial process and failed each time. Now they are holding the government hostage, risking the lives and livelihoods of ordinary Americans, to get their way. That is not governing – that is bullying.”
