very good reasons that Obamacare is so hard to repeal.

Yes, it sucks. Yes, it is a fool’s errand. Yes, ObamacareĀ is logically and practically not feasible or even close to working . Yes, Obama willfully and brutally damaged the country with this pig. Yes, yes, yes. Yes.

But it is still very hard to get rid of. And that is by design. That was always Obama’s intent and plan. As I have said before, Obamacare is a barbed hook, and there will be pain in getting clear of it. Yeah, it was designed that way. The barbed hook only goes one way, and there is considerable pain and damage in getting it out.

So the GOP is struggling mightily to get rid of Obamacare, but it is a hard, even daunting task. For a TON of reasons, it is far from a simple thing. Paul Ryan is trying to minimize the pain, though I think he is doing it wrong. I think you just have to rip the bandaid off quickly and then have ways to reduce the inevitable pain that follows.

But the populace is often not very understanding. When Obama put the bandaid on there was (of course) no pain. But it turns out that you are having an allergic reaction to the bandaid. You need to get it off now, but it will still hurt to remove. And even though you need that to happen, you might well be angry at the person who rips the bandaid off. That anger is totally misplaced. You should reasonably be mad at the guy who put the bandaidĀ on you knowing full well that it would cause you problems and then skipped off once you got an allergic reaction and needed a painful procedure to get rid of it.

Trump didn’t put that bandaid on you, Obama did. So don’t be angry at Trump when he has to rip it off and cause you pain.Obama is the ultimate cause of that pain, not Trump.
