UPDATE - Oops, that was too much truth-telling for one day. Schumer's backtracking, "clarifying" that Obamacare is slowing the rise of healthcare costs and improving the quality of care, neither of which is true.

This sounds like a “modified limited hang out”. Feeble attemtp at damage control. Just wait until the masses figure out they’ve been had.

Well Chuckie, obamacare was touted as the magical fix-all to rising premiums. That in fact it would cause premiums to go down.

I guess being an uber-liberal means never having to remember your previous lies, or having your media whore cover buddies bring them up and embarrass you.

When the Democrats passed their healthcare law they called it the Affordable Care Act.

Then, as Obama continued to delude himself that the new law would be wonderful in every way, including bringing down healthcare costs, he encouraged the media to call it ObamaCare so he would be able to take full credit.

Now, as we wait for the inevitable train wreck to occur and healthcare prices to skyrocket, while the whole enterprise starts to collapse, it’s time to muse on what the act’s third name will be.

It’s likely that when the bad days come, Obama will not want his name on his healthcare act, so he will likely disavow any connection with it, blame the whole thing on Congress, and encourage the media to promote this view. Thus, we might well have to live under the worst healthcare system in the world, ever to be known as SchumerCare.

Schumer sez... just one more step to single payer, the rainbow at the end of the nobamacare highway.

There is a common thread to the dems brazeneness in recent years. It’s called the “so what?” ploy. No one holds them accountable so they don’t even have to lie as much as before. They can just say “so what” and keep going. It takes less effort.

Schumer can say “yeah ObamaCare raised the costs. so what?” and no on will say squat. Obama can say “yeah the FBI look at the bomber dude and didn’t find anything. so what?” Hillary can say “yeah, people died at Benghazi, what difference does it make?”
