Opting out of ObamaCare is a state’s friendly way of saying, ‘’We’re seceding. We’re joining other freedom-loving states in this first step toward liberating our people from Federal tyranny, and if it works, next we’ll be withdrawing from the bankrupt Social Security System and setting up our own state-pension arrangements guaranteed to be solvent.’’
And what will Obama do? Most likely travel to an ObamaCare-loving state like California and make a campaign speech decrying those mean Republican states that aren’t cooperating. Then return to Washington and play golf.
What else is he going to do if states like Pennsylvania and Texas decide to go their own way on healthcare, bomb Philadelphia? Redeploy our bumbling troops from Afghanistan where they can’t win battles against 7th-century tribal warriors to Dallas on a suicide mission to take out millions of dedicated gun-toting good old boys from the Lone Star state?
Oh, we’re told constantly by the left that the “blue states” fund the “red states” through the gov’t,
so I’m sure they won’t mind letting the “dead weight” go.
“What else is he going to do....”
I expect the jerk to find ways of withholding federal money from these states. It’s about control and getting even with him. He will find some way of making it difficult for those that don’t worship him.
