Skip to comments.Debunking the “ObamaCare is Conservative” Myth, Final Part
Posted on 07/25/2012 10:04:14 AM PDT by Sark
When I started this series, I wanted to systematically dismantle a myth that Ive seen thrown in the faces of conservatives over and over. Specifically, I was inspired by a segment I caught on MSNBC, in which a panel of pundits were discussing the backlash to the Supreme Courts ObamaCare ruling. The panels token conservative explained why conservatives arent just surrendering on ObamaCare. He highlighted a few of the policy issues with the health care reform law, pointed out its enormous cost and expansion of federal power, and began to explain why conservatives still think the law is unconstitutional.
It was at about this point that someone else on the panel cut him off with a smirking, Please. The Affordable Care Act is a conservative law. You conservatives are just playing political games because you dont like President Obama. Thats not an exact quote, but thats the gist of what he said. This is a myth that Ive seen pop up repeatedly in debates between conservatives and leftists.

Did you know that? Did you know that Roberts ruled that it ONLY applies to corporations? He did.
” - - - Obamacare myth is that is applies to the people. It does not.”
If your assertion is true, then what happens “to the people” if they do not obey the Dictates of Mighty Obama”care?”
