Obama and Dems kept mum about Obamacare downsides in order to pass planTopics: Political News and commentaries
New: For Democrats, a day of Obamacare accountability is coming. It could be very, very harsh. http://t.co/14MKEiDgYq— Byron York (@ByronYork) November 15, 2013
Byron York's bottom line: "Democrats will no doubt talk a lot about various measures to "fix" this or that part of Obamacare. But voters will know that those Democrats are just seeking to clean up a mess they made in the first place. The political price to be paid could be very, very high."
And rest assured that Republicans will make sure voters know.
Not just Obama: GOP puts out quotes of 61 House Dems promising that if you like your coverage, you can keep it: http://t.co/GL96kLI1Ms— Byron York (@ByronYork) November 14, 2013
As 'Baron Von Ottomatic' so appropriately notes in his piece at Wizbang:
"As it stands now Obama has been exposed as utterly incompetent in executing his signature legislation while squandering what credibility he may have once had. Less than one year into his second term he's pretty much a lame duck already. It seems the best way to discredit liberalism is to give it a filibuster-proof majority in Congress, a sitting president and free rein to destroy one sixth of our economy.
The downside is that many millions of Americans will suffer under disruptions in their health coverage. If you're going to make an omelet you've got to break a few eggs though, right? John Doe in the movie Se7en said it best, "Wanting people to listen, you can't just tap them on the shoulder anymore. You have to hit them with a sledgehammer, and then you'll notice you've got their strict attention."
Let's hope conservatives don't squander this moment in time when they've got America's strict attention."
