I love the ongoing hypocrisy of the DNC over Obamacare. They can’t seem to decide on the reason why their plans are going down in flames. Perhaps it’s their own obfuscations, not that they would ever admit that even to themselves. I guess it goes back to the old joke about the Democratic Party always destroying it’s own plans with the best of intentions. (It’s not like the Republicans are any different, either.)
Reason 1: It’s GOP’s fault. Rejected by the public simply on the fact that the Democrats hold the majority in both the House and Senate.
Reason 2: It’s a vast right-wing conspiracy to “manufacture” anger and “mobs”. Rejected by the public since it’s well…the public that is angry and yes it is a mob of people.
Reason 3: It’s the wacky gun-toting militias fault. Rejected by the public as pure “WTF, do you really think we’re THAT stupid?”
Reason 4: It’s the insurance companies. Rejected by some 80%+ of the public who have coverage and like it.
Reason 5: As per today’s e-mail from the propagandists at Democracy for America:
…we’ve been pushing back on the media lies…
big mean Obama loving MSM is somehow now a pack of liars. Funny how Obama and Co didn’t mind when the MSM blatantly went their way without even a hint of objectivity or journalistic integrity.
I guess it never occured to them that trying to force it on the American people without them have any input (as the White House tried to do by insisting that it be done by August in order to silence the people) coupled with the fact that few to none had actually read the bill passed by the House and suspicious intimidation tactics like snitch@bigbrother along with their ongoing bankrupting and pillaging of American taxpayers to pay off all their chums in the unions, corporations, banks, and so on might just tick the American people off.
I expect their next phase it going to a combination of releasing the attack dogs on anyone even hinting dissent against ObamaCare and trying to put out emotion-based appeals to try and guilt trip America into giving up their health care for a government run monstrosity. Who know? Maybe they’ll surprise me and allow true open, nonpartisan, and reasonable discussion of the issue fro the group the matters the most, the people, instead of the “my way or else” elitist dictatorial attitude currently floating around.
