ObamaCare Was Never Other Than A Wrecking Ball

One of the mistakes we frequently make with the Left is to give them the benefit of the doubt. To consider that they argue in good faith. ObamaCare was never intended to build anything useful. Which is why a diabolically evil person like Kathleen Sebelius can offer an economically nonsensical argument about paying for programs through cratering the tax base.

Americans United for Life has mis-underestimated the nature of the evil we face:
There is no point to ObamaCare other than to wipe out any functional remnant of American healthcare, and pave the way for single payer, which is, of course, antithetical to liberty.

This is why Obama probably doesn’t care about the results of the oral arguments at the SCOTUS this month. Crash it now, crash it later; the rotational velocity of the death spiral is merely a detail.

I get the feeling that we’ve under-estimated this Administration’s commitment to evil significantly. But don’t worry, conservatives: Romney’s got your six. -Foot deep final resting place prepared.

Thanks to Quinton on Twitter.

    Of course you’re right — it was created to enslave us, just like LBJ’s “Great Society”

    The article linked portrays Romney was opposed to most of  the things the Democrats were trying to pack into ObamaCare, European-style, single-payer, the public option, and so forth.  He sounded as if he was still  giving Obama too much credit for trying to do the right thing, before the abomination was finally rammed through.  I don’t think he does now, although he doesn’t want to sound too  radical.  But the hard ultraleftists recognize an enemy, even if Republicans are still a little confused.

    Dan Collins makes a valid point, but Sebelius’ claim is ridiculous upon its face.  It supposes that NO women EVER use contraception when it isn’t FREE through coverage.  Um, sorry, not true.  People manage to use it quite a bit, and few plans cover it free now.

    So, the ONLY “savings” from avoided pregnancies – even if that were not a false economy in the long run, as Collins notes – would be from those few (if any) women who NEVER use birth control unless it is free from their insurer.

    As for Romney and ObamaCare:  a good rule of thumb is that when AP and EE are running about hysterically, the best course of action is to lean back, crack a beer, and scratch your testicles (if any).

    Here’s the play:  “Both Obama and Romney were for a plan like this.  One of them recognizes that in this country the people rule the government and wants to repeal it; the other thinks he rules the people and tells them to sit down and shut up.”

    Any questions?

    “Both of them recognize that in this country the people think they rule the government and must be lied to until he rules the people who can then be told to sit down and shut up.”

    FTFY. ORomney has said repeatedly that the basic premise behind ORomneycare is a good one and it doesn’t need repealing.

    My only question is are you stupid, dishonest or both?

    I’ll take both for a thousand….

    And here’s Mitt in 2009 endorsing every element of ORomneycare national.

    Vote Romney: Because white chocolate is so much less fattening than dark.
