ObamaCare Passed to Gain New Democratic Voters?Topics: Political News and commentaries, Understanding Islam
Was Obamacare passed to gain 30 million new voters for the Democrats?
David Remnick, author of the new book, 'The Bridge: The Life and Rise of Barack Obama' (not linking to it because I don't link to puff pieces for thugacracies) outed on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher what he considers the real liberal agenda behind ObamaCare as he predicted that instead of being an "albatross" that will hurt Democrats at the ballot box in November, all those new beneficiaries will be grateful and vote Democratic:
When you add 30 million people to the rolls of getting health care, access to health care, seems to me a huge gain and the potential widening of the base for the Democratic Party among a lot of people who might not necessarily vote before. So, I don't think you're going to see a repeat of 1994 come this fall.More over at NewsBusters...
Is Remnick right? Did the Democrats ram through a hugely unpopular bill to get 30 million more voters? Who, besides Pelosi, Reid, and Obama really know the truth, but there had to be a reason for their willingness to through so many Democrat legislators under the bus for November 2010. And at this point, given the thirst for power and dominance over every aspect of our lives we've seen evidenced since Obama and the Congressional Dems came to power, I certainly wouldn't put anything past the Democrats at this point.
