It is indisputable, the Democrats own Obama Care (The Affordable Care Act). Democrats crafted the bill, there was no Republican input, and not one Republican voted for it. The plan is two-fold.
1. Obama Care will be the legacy of President Obama. He expects this to go down in history as the crowing achievement of his eight years in office. (so far he doesn’t have much else)
2. The Democrats see Obama Care as a perfect way to win elections in 2016, and for many election cycles to come. It is the old chicken dinner or a pint of spirits for a vote on speed! They are certain that they and the President will be the champions of the American people for years to come. What could possibly go wrong?
I think we are getting a hint on day two of the implementation of Obama Care. It’s very early, but so far it’s a colossal mess and becoming more unpopular by the hour. When big labor becomes vocal about a Democrat initiative there’s trouble ahead! Just as sure as Democrats alone own this bill and it’s consequences, so the Republicans are getting 100% of the blame for everything bad in America. The major news media are in lock step with the DNC often using word for word talking points on a given day. It appears to most people right now that the Republicans are in deep trouble. But are they?
In the coming months, after the govt is funded again and the debt ceiling is raised once again, the furor will die down some and another subject will steal the thunder on the evening news on TV. It happens. The Democrats are correct when they say it (OC) is law so stop fighting a war that’s over. It is law and we Americans must live with it. A tsunami is coming Democrats!
Way before the 2016 political contests get into swing the American public will have had plenty of time to experience this Utopian idea of the greatest health care plan in modern times. Unless I am completely out to lunch about how bad this plan will be, the Democrats will be targets for the wrath of their own people. I’m convinced that the Affordable Care Act is going to be so bad that once people in large numbers start to find out how it is hurting the economy, their healthcare costs, the quality of their health care, and how much out-of-pocket these “cheap” insurance plans are going to cost, they are going to rebel. Guess what? They can’t blame the Republicans for this mess! Democrats and this President own it lock, stock, and barrel. No one can hold the Republicans responsible.
People historically vote their pocket books. They vote for the person or party they think will give them to most for nothing. Most voters are “low information” voters and even they will be able to smell this rat in due time. I believe this Obama legacy builder is going to back fire big time. If it does guess who will be the beneficiary? Senator Ted Cruz will not seem as much like a stupid monster as the press and their puppets have led us to believe.
The next several months will prove me right or wrong. At a bare minimum it will be interesting to watch the next several months unfold. It’s your baby Democrats! Will it grow up to be the adorable thing you imagined or will it become a monster you can’t keep hidden?
