How can this be? Wasn’t it just 48 hours ago that our Sham WOW (Walks on Water) chief executive responded to a question about Obamacare thusly?
It’s gone through Supreme Court tests. It’s gone through efforts to repeal. A huge chunk of it’s already been implemented.
And for the 85 to 90 percent of Americans who already have health insurance, they’re already experiencing most of the benefits of the Affordable Care Act even if they don’t know it. Their insurance is more secure. Insurance companies can’t drop them for bad reasons. Their kids are able to stay on their health insurance until they’re 26 years old. They’re getting free preventive care.
So there are a whole host of benefits that — for the average American out there, for the 85 to 90 percent of Americans who already have health insurance, this thing’s already happened, and their only impact is that their insurance is stronger, better, more secure than it was before. Full stop. That’s it. Now they don’t have to worry about anything else. (emphasis mine)
We just don’t realize that we’re experiencing most of its benefits? We just don’t realize it? Seriously? I guess the real question at this point is whether Barack Obama is delusional, or is he simply trying to lull everyone into a false sense of security by continuing the deception about the Orwellian-named “Affordable Care Act?”
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says he shares colleagues’ concerns that the Affordable Care Act could become a “train wreck” if it’s not implemented properly.
Reid warned that people will not be able to choose health insurance plans on government health exchanges if federal authorities lack the resources to set them up and educate the public.
“Max said unless we implement this properly it’s going to be a train wreck and I agree with him,” Reid said, echoing a warning delivered last month by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.).
Reid warned the federal government is not spending enough money to implement the law because of Republican opposition to ObamaCare.
“Here’s what we have now, we have the menu but we don’t have any way to get to the menu,” Reid said.
Menu? Does Sen. Reid think he’s in the Senate cafeteria? Note his diagnosis of the problem. Where’s my shocked face? The democrats know the reason that Obamacare is a disaster. We aren’t spending enough money on it! Of course! The Obama administration is spending $14 million on a PR firm to “educate” the public, and is hiring tens of thousands of “navigators” at a cost of $54 million for the first year alone to walk people through the sign up process (and no doubt to help them register to vote in the process). Still, that’s not enough to make this disaster work.
Meanwhile, yesterday we learned that, at least according to one poll, 42% of Americans are completely unaware that this nightmare is actually the law. Gee, why do I think that these are the lo-fo’s that voted for the One in the first place?
Oh, yeah. What could possibly go wrong? Democrats like Sen. Baucus and Sen. Reid have launched a pre-emptive strike, in the hope that when this thing breaks REALLY bad, they can pin the blame elsewhere. Will the GOP help them out?
