If you read the New York Times or any newspaper site, or watch MSNBC, CNBC, CNN, or any of the traditional news networks, you might think that the bickering over the Obamacare bill is partisan politics in action. (You'd also have no idea about the 4 videos exposing Acorn corruption, but that is a different topic.) These state-run news organizations have painted the debate as Republicans trying to block the Democratic majority from action.
That is a lie. While Republicans in general oppose Obamacare, the Democrats have a large enough majority to ram it through if they wanted to. The problem is, to quote Rush Limbaugh, that the bill is a "piece of crap". And there isn't even consensus among Democrats on what should be in the bill.
Exhibit A is this story:

Notice this is one Democratic Senator criticizing a bill put forward by a fellow Democratic Senator! This is not Republicans mounting opposition. This is not conservative groups organizing crowds to go to town hall meetings. This is not special interest lobbying to defeat a bill. This is internal Democratic bickering, stalling progress on a piece of socialist legislation.
It gives me hope that there are some Democrats in congress that get it. That understand that Americans are fed up with business as usual politics. That Americans are overburdened by taxes at every level: federal, state, and local. And that Obamacare will exasperate that tax burden.
So while the liberals are pointing the finger at conservatives and Republicans, they have 4 fingers pointings squarely back at themselves. All but the most liberal of Democratic congressmen are questioning if this is the right direction.
Obamacare is change that we don't want and can't afford.
