Dingy Harry: Obamacare Will Be a Train Wreck Unless We Spend More Money
Rush Limbaugh.com ^ | May 2, 2013 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 05/02/2013 1:16:15 PM PDT by Kaslin

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Dingy Harry "says he shares colleagues' concerns that the Affordable Care Act could become a 'train wreck' if it's not implemented properly," which means as quick as it can be before people figure out even more what's in it. Dingy Harry "warned that people will not be able to choose health insurance plans on government health exchanges if federal authorities lack the resources to set them up and educate the public. 'Max [Baucus ] said unless we implement this properly it's going to be a train wreck, and I agree with him,' Reid said..."

So what do you think Dingy Harry's solution here is?

(interruption)

That's exactly right, Mr. Snerdley!

We need more money. We need to spend even more money to properly implement this, and we need to do it tomorrow before people find even more of what's in it. Again, Dingy Harry "warned that people will not be able to choose health insurance plans on government health exchanges if federal authorities lack the resources [i.e. the money] to set them up and educate the public." Did you know you're gonna need to go to a reeducation camp or have a PSA or something to find out how to do this, how to fill out the application form? Imagine, they created -- what we up to now, $2 trillion? -- a $2 trillion health care plan, and somehow they forget the money to implement the exchanges!

Just Once, Just once
Maybe before I assume room temperature, a Liberal will not ask for more money for a failing program. . . . . .
That is ALL they know. Throw more money at the problem. . . . . It has never worked and never will.
That is why they are complete IDIOTS.
Idiots keep doing the exact same thing over and over and expect different results. . . . Ain't gona happen. . . .

They’re setting it up to blame the (certain) failure on us.

They’re emboldened cuz they see that NOTHING sticks to the elegant black guy now dismantling the USA.

How could they NOT be emboldened?

Over the last 4 years Obama and the Democrats have been borrowing money like crazy and bankrupting the country to hide the magnitude of our fiscal and unemployment problems by directly paying non working people with borrowed money to provide a sense of false normalcy

Now he wants to borrow even more on top of that to pay for ObamaCare’s health care payment to temporarily hide how big of a disaster it really is and to postpone the inevitable day of reckoning

Kind of smart when you think about it. All he has to do hold thing together until Nov 2014.

This thing is going to be so sadly and ridiculously unsuccessful it’s just going to be embarrassing.

Such a wonderful and powerful, strong country we used to be ...and now this. PATHETIC.

Lets see if the GOP caves on que. Because they do have the power to say no. And if they give him his lifeline, every one of the psuedocons in the political right should foot the bill for supporting them.

Socialists always do this. When their “brilliant schemes” turn into scumber, they always assert:

1) It wasn’t funded enough.
2) It was sabotaged by the “enemies of the people”.

and finally,

3) It has to be *universal* to work, as if competition is somehow unfair or makes their failed scheme not work.

Importantly, such failed systems always posit unlimited growth as a *requirement* for success. If they have any even modest success, it is solely because there is a revenue source *outside* the system, on which it can parasite.

A great example was Swedish socialism, that functioned at all only because of the hugely profitable Swedish arms industry, that though saddled with very high taxes, was outside of the welfare system and quite profitable.

However, the welfare system kept growing and sucking down more resources until eventually the socialist Swedish PM, Olaf Palme, decided to nationalize the arms industry, and thus kill the goose that laid the golden eggs.

Finally the arms industry had enough, and shortly thereafter, a “mad assassin” gunned down Palme. Purely coincidentally, I am sure.

In any event, Reid is just using the usual first excuse, and when Obamacare blows up in earnest, he will be extremely bitter and accuse the Republicans of sabotage.

And of course, he and his cronies will then threaten to bring Obamacare back, but as universal health care, fully socialized medicine.

Hopefully they will all end up in an old folks’ home, bitter as all hell about how America was so close to embracing socialism, until the people, damn them, failed the Democrat party.

So if it’s a “train wreck,” why not just kill it and ... not have the train wreck.

Obamacare is a constitutionally-indefensible Trojan horse remedy to a government-manufactured crisis. In other words, Obamacare is itself another government-manufactured crisis. When will America learn?

Immigration amnesty and ObamaCare are going to be the defining issues for the Republican Party.

If they hold steady they will save the country.

If they cave we as a country will be screwed and the Republicans will cease to exist as relevant national political party

I think the GOP is actually already in a flat spin. A new party would probably be better able to articulate and stand on the founding principles that the GOP used to represent. I don’t mean a third party. I mean a new party that will supplant the GOP, taking in conservatives, most independents, and the bulk of the sane Libertarians (probably also those who would be “Reagan Democrats” if this was 1980). The GOP is vulnerable to sudden collapse, IMO. How many of us are actually enthusiastic about the direction the GOP has been heading since...well, really since Bush I?

Typical liberal solution to anything; throw more money at a bad policy and it will become a good policy. This has, of course, worked with Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, welfare, education, green jobs,.....(add your own).

North Carolina just made it against their state laws to implement ANY form of Obamacare.

In short order many other states will follow soon.
