Pres­id­ent Obama tri­umphantly an­nounced Thursday that sign-ups for the Af­ford­able Care Act reached 8 mil­lion as the first en­roll­ment peri­od came to an end.

The pres­id­ent, as he has been prone to do of late, asked Re­pub­lic­ans to stop try­ing to tear down the law.

“I think we can all agree that it’s well past time to move on,” he said.

But not every­one agrees.

The tweet, which came from the of­fi­cial ac­count of the Na­tion­al Re­pub­lic­an Con­gres­sion­al Com­mit­tee, sums up the polit­ic­al back-and-forth that has gripped Wash­ing­ton since 2010. When the tug-of-war will end, we can’t know.
