North Carolina State Senator Bob Rucho (guess) does not like Obamacare. Never having embedded tweets, I will just paste the text here.
Justice Robert’s pen & Obamacare has done more damage to the USA then the swords of the Nazis,Soviets & terrorists combined.

Welp, that pretty much covers the twentieth century plus nine-eleven. You could throw in World War I, the Spanish flu, Vietnam, Chernobyl, Iran-Contra and he first wave of white rappers, except that even leaving that stuff out Rucho’s additive clause puts Obamacare well over the top.
This puts your next GOP nutter in an unhappy bind. As far as a primary challenger is concerned, anyone who falls short of this Rucho guy might as well have written the death panel clause himself. You want to avoid sounding derivative, yet Rucho claimed just about every bad thing in living memory. Slavery would work if the Pauls took even one day off from comparing every single government program to slavery, to the point that E.W. Jackson cannot even get a raised eyebrow for thundering on about it. I suppose you could multiply rather than add, though the average supporter might run out of fingers. Otherwise Obamacare is worse than what, the K-T asteroid? The bubonic plague? You guys should help the GOP out and offer some suggestions of your own.
Then again. If you look at it from the narrow perspective of the GOP as a party unmoored from any interest in the well being of average Americans, Obamacare might look a lot like an extinction-level asteroid plunging inexorably towards your dinosaur society. Especially if it works. I would understand then if they resist that cretaceous-tertiary analogy, finding it, as they say, a little on the nose.
