DUmmies Wonder Why Obama BUmmed Out by Obamacare
The Chinese have an ancient saying: "Be careful of what you wish for because you might get it." Well, Obama, the Democrats, and the DUmmies wished for Obamacare and now that they got it, they are bummed out over it. Any wonder that the Obama regime facilitated ObamaCare going to the Supreme Court for a ruling on its constitutionality this Spring? They are probably hoping that the high court tosses it upon the ash heap of history so they won't be burdened by having to defend it for the November election. The DUmmies have noticed that Obama barely mentioned his main piece of legislation during the State of the Union Address as you can see in this THREAD, "Why Obama’s Not Talking About His Health Care Law In This Election." OOPS! It finally dawned on The One that ObamaCare is an albatross so he is now clamming up about it. So let us watch the DUmmies taking note of Obama's recent silence on this topic in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, wondering if the White House will celebrate in secret if the USOC strikes down ObamaCare, is in the [barackets]:
Why Obama’s Not Talking About His Health Care Law In This Election.
[Because it sucks?]
In addition to the individual mandate being extremely unpopular, opinions about the entire Affordable Care Act have remained negative and been trending downward. The Kaiser Family Foundation poll found 44 percent view the law unfavorably while just 37 percent now view it favorably.
[But Joe Biden thought it was a "big f-ing deal."]
This is why during the State of the Union President Obama gave only the briefest passing mention to his signature health care law, and he didn’t even mention it by name. The State of the Union was a political speech. It is now clear that Obama so terribly mismanaged the politics of health care reform that the law is a serious net negative for the Obama campaign.
[The poisonous legislation that Dare Not Speak Its Name.]
Don’t expect the issue of health care to be brought up by choice by Democrats in the upcoming campaign.
[That means YOU, Joe Biden!]
I keep hoping they scrap the darn thing and start all over on single pay as the focus. The problem of health care accessibility and affordability is no solved by this bill, let alone the enforcment of it's most controversial provision: mandatory coverage. It was a dog from the start, as soon as single-pay was taken off the table.
[Tough luck, DUmmie Loge23. And now that dog has bitten the Democrats in the butt.]
Obama really pushed it hard in his SOTU election campaign address!
He said ..........." "
And ....... " "
[I could have sworn I heard him say......" ". However, it might have been his teleprompter that said that.]
Constantly suggesting this was anything but a rearrangement of the insurance market won't change the reality. In 10 years we'll be talking about HCR the same way we have been talking about DADT and DOMA.
[Just call ObamaCare DOA.]
I believe if anything the mandate will become even less popular once it's enacted after the 2012 elections.
[Best way to repeal it is to defeat You-Know-Who.]
He's probably smart not to talk about it until after the Supremes make their decision. If they uphold it, he can bring up all kinds of good things about it. If they toss it, he can run on what should have been done in the first place: Medicare for all.
[Will he issue an official "OOPS!" if it is tossed? Remember, most of the first half of his Administration was dedicated SOLELY to ObamaCare.]
If they think the health care "Reform" is a "negative" now, ...wait until 2014 when The Mandate kicks in, and 40 - 70 MILLION (predicted uninsured by 2014) already hard pressed Working Class Americans are forced to BUY Junk "Bronze" Insurance.
[Thank you for giving us yet another reason for voting Obama OUT.]
The smartest thing the Democrats did was to delay The Mandate until AFTER the 2012 elections, because after The Mandate kicks in, Democrats will be unelectable for a generation.
[Thank you for presenting that silver lining in ObamaCare.]
Yes, that's what is so frightening. And Democrats will have to own the misery.
[From your lips to Goddess Gaia's ears.]
