On Obamacare and the Wages of Spin

Topics: Political News and commentaries

Paul Hsieh at PJ Media: "Don't p*ss on my back and tell me it's raining!"

Many years ago, the writer Ayn Rand noticed a curious kind of backpedalling from the political Left. First, they'd claim that socialism would provide enough shoes for the whole world. But when economic reality caught up with them, and they failed to deliver on their promises, they'd turn around and claim that going barefoot was superior to wearing shoes. In modern parlance, those broken promises weren't a bug, but a feature!

In the past few weeks, we've seen precisely this pattern coming from defenders of ObamaCare. For example:

Before: If you like your insurance, you can keep it.
Now: Losing your insurance is good!

In a CNN op-ed, progressive activist Sally Kohn attempted to argue that "a canceled health plan is a good thing."

Basically, she claimed that the cancelled insurance plans weren't that good anyway, and the government was doing those people a favor by making them buy insurance that government considered better, even if it costs more.

Before: You'll pay less for insurance.
Now: Paying more is good!

Perhaps the most revealing 'before and now' that speaks volumes about the Obama administration is ...

Before: This will be the most transparent administration ever
Now: Lying to Americans was necessary!
I can remember a time in America when lying was never considered justifiable. But then again, I can also remember when a known radical leftist, proven prior to election to be dishonest, with no experience whatsoever other than community organizing would never have been elected president by what has become a gullible, poorly informed, and terribly naive electorate.
