Obamacare is falling apart badly enough to even have Chris Matthews, Obama’s biggest sycophant, question the president’s credibility on it. Hill Democrats are frustrated and publically acknowledging obvious problems for the first time. Self-righteous celebrities are now avoiding interviews about the health care law they were once blindly promoting for Obama.
It is now becoming clear that Obama knew long before now that his continued promise (lie?) of being able to keep existing health plans was not accurate. There should also be little doubt that he knew plan costs were not going to reduce across the board because that never made sense.
This fiasco should not be a surprise to anyone. It was accurately predicted by evil, heartless, racist, women-hating, war mongering Republicans who were, we were told, only against the health care law because they hate Obama and poor people. Warnings were given daily, heard only by those watching FOX News because the mainstream media didn’t want you to know.
Ignorant voters deserve this mess. Voting to make history rather than to make sense was stupid, and there is always a price to pay for stupidity. Apathy, too, comes at a price, so non-voters are just as deserving. We now have a healthcare system in turmoil, costing more, providing less, and promising even more problems and costs in the future.
Ignorance is often accompanied by arrogance, and the emotional investment many have in Obama produces both. A perfect example is MSNBC’s Ed Shultz who immediately went into denial proclaiming “there are no glitches” with the Obamacare rollout and blamed FOX News and Republicans for manufacturing glitches.
Others, such as Bill Maher and Howard Dean, have joined Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in a surreal attempt to lay blame on Republicans who, en masse, voted against Obamacare. Denial is ramping up and reality is being distorted to fit the “dream”. With the farce of “comprehensive” immigration reform (aka amnesty) up next for ramming down our throats, reality is the administration’s worst enemy and must be avoided.
Unfortunately, wise and informed voters (a voter minority) will suffer, too, but with no shock. Their shock came when an inexperienced, far left freshman Senator with a background only in community organizing was voted in as president – twice.
