I think the Republicans would be

08 Mar

incredibly foolish to waffle on Obamacare:

I think the Rs are also facing an existential threat, just like the Ds are. We see that with their waffling on Obamacare. If they substantially go along with it, another party will arise and the Rs will merge with the Ds. I give it 10 years, max. And you would see a shift in the upcoming mid-term elections. The “Conservative Party” will arise if the Rs don’t get on the stick.

Either the Rs get rid of the odious Obamacare or they are toast. They control all 3 branches of government now, so there are no more freakin’ excuses. The sun is shining—they need to make hay while the sun shines… The time for bluffing and whining is over. This is an existential issue for the GOP.

They die as a party if they don’t make substantial changes–it is that simple. And this just shines a blazing spotlight on the glaring weakness.

In past days it was seen as good to get along and make concessions to the other party. Those days are over, in large part due to the Democrats. Republicans need to wise up, here.

lover her or hate her, she is right. There is NO crisis in health care if government just got out of the way. Government IS the problem.

Yes, catastrophic insurance could be bundled with welfare (and ALL health insurance should be sold across state lines), but anything more almost for sure screws things up. Bigly.

Obamacare is a barbed hook that will be painful to remove. It was designed that way on purpose, and it works as designed. But there are far better ways of skinning this cat–if access to health care is indeed what you are after.

This is just one of the many “barbed hooks” that Obama left. It was meant to cause pain, and it does.

Can you say, “astroturf?”

I knew that you could!

They are “astroturfing” because they have nothing else.

I think the deal

is just that, fundamentally, Obamacare sucks. Facts are stubborn things, and no matter how much you whine, kvetch, and whinge, the facts don’t change. Throw your tantrum, whine that it is not fair, but the facts remain the facts. And the bedrock fact is the Obamacare sucks. Nothing can change that.

Understand that the damage has been done. Ending Obamacare will cause some pain. You can’t get that hook out without the barb doing at least a little damage, and Obama with his Democrat co-conspirators set the hook. Hard.  You will heal, but removing it will also cause damage and pain.

unraveling.

Today Humana, tomorrow Aetna? Congress better get on the stick, because it is not clear how much longer this pig will keep breathing!

This was a stupid idea from the get-go. I know it was a Lefty dream and so as soon as Lefties got power they rammed it through in very irregular fashion, but they and we need to face the cold, hard fact. It don’t work. It is and always has been a dog that don’t hunt. It lays on the porch great, but it don’t hunt.

Now I fully understand that there are “barbs” and there will be pain associated with removing the Obamacare hooks, but it needs to be done. I don’t think it can be done without some pain. THIS is what happens when you elect a Lefty to the Presidency. THIS is what happens when you vote for someone like Nancy Pelosi.

Be wiser next time.

If that is true, it is the death-knell of Obamacare. Lefty scams only work with force. Force is the lifeblood of Leftism.

This is raw tribalism uber alles. THIS is what Democrats are all about.

patently obvious that this would happen. DUH!

Any of us who have run a business kn0w that. But Obama and his minions were always insulated from this–they were virtually always mere employees, and in any case they were and are not struggling at all. But when you are an executive and are judged only by results, when you eat only what you kill, you understand far better. See, Leftists tend not to live off the sweat of their own brow, so they don’t get it. I’m NOT saying they don’t work hard or are not honorable or are not intelligent, but they don’t really understand what it is like to float your own boat. They have just never done it. They are worker bees, not business owners.

That’s why the vast, vast majority of business owners are Conservative. Pretty much only those very high up (who don’t have to worry about such pedestrian things) and those very low (who want stuff stolen from others and given to them) are Leftists. That’s why the “Gig Economy” is such a huge threat to the Left. Yes, there are echoes of the Victorian disdain for labor and being a merchant, but in modern days being your own boss is a HUGE threat to the Left. So they make it as hard as possible.

It’s also why the Left wants control of the Academy so badly. They already have a stranglehold on public schools. You get more “converts” if you can indoctrinate them young, and the younger the better. So Universal Preschool is a Lefty fantasy, not because it works (it doesn’t, as any knowledgeable person can tell you) but because it makes it more likely that they can “mold” the children to their way of thinking. Why do you think the Left hates home schooling with the heat of a thousand suns? Look at history–the Left’s goal has always been to get kids away from their families (where they might be taught conservative things!).

That’s why the Founding Fathers set things so that only white males (who usually owned land) voted. It wasn’t mere racism or sexism (though there are cases where that indeed may have been active, as well). It was the idea that only producers had a say in how the gov’t was run. In modern days, Lefties have turned voting into a fetish. In old times, almost everyone could vote, but only a certain portion were, in fact, eligible.

And THAT is why you simply never vote for a person who has not lived off his own business if you can possibly help it. It is NOT IQ, It is the lived life experience. Having an abstract understanding is usually not enough. You don’t really understand until you have lived it. Real knowledge is experiential, not abstract.
