It’s kind of a bummer to see #OccupyResoluteDesk so misinterpreted:
See, you’re going to have a plan that you can keep. All of the angst hinges around you learning to LIKE the thing. And that’s where the American people have really let our no-talent rodeo clown down. For some strange reason, we have refused to internalize the concept of rank incompetence and thuggery as the new excellence. Clearly the problem lies with us.
Via Instapundit, the fact that numbers are all morally equivalent helps soften the blow that ObamaCare will only insure half of the number previously taped to the shuttlecock down at the badminton court on Martha’s Vineyard. Pay no attention that, as with unemployment numbers, the actual values will likely prove significantly worse, once the value of deceiving people has diminished to the point the truth leaks out.
And so Harry ‘the Cadaver’ Reid is going to defend ObamaCare as though it were Greece, and our federal government the EuroZone.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) declared Thursday that any government funding legislation that takes away money for Obamacare has no chance of becoming law.
“In case there is any shred of doubt in the minds of our House counterparts, I want to be absolutely crystal clear,” Reid said at a news conference. “Any bill that defunds Obamacare is dead. Dead.”
And if anybody in DC is intimately familiar with rigor mortis conditions, it’s Ol’ Harry.
But let’s have none of that scurrilous, old-fashioned equality-before-the-law talk:
On Tuesday Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) indicated on the floor of the Senate he was “open to having a vote” on Senator David Vitter’s (R-LA) amendment to eliminate the Obamacare exemption for members of Congress, according to a Breitbart source on Capitol Hill. [Friday], however, he and his Democratic colleagues are singing a different tune, and the lyrics come straight from that timeless phrase used by hypocrites throughout American history: “What’s good for thee is not good for me.”
My thought, given the state of the slow-motion train-wreck, is that after suitable theater, Congress delays the ObamaCare debacle a year, and tries to get some of the infrastructure more ready. I doubt that the Democrats have any regard for ObamaCare itself; it’s never been more than a stepping stone to Single Prayer, anyway. As long as it’s achieving its purpose of being a Cloward-Piven wrecking ball, why would the Democrats care?
The danger to the Dems, as the sleeping giant of liberty continues to awake, is that a delay permits drags the economy down, and more information about how diabolically false the entire undertaking to circulate. That could affect the 2014 vote.
Suggestion: hire John Cleese for a series of PSAs at NFL games, trying to sell “ObamaCareTross” and/or “CrapNados”:
