Skip to comments.Obama Stars in The No-Name Law That Sank His Party; they'll be hunting Democrats with dogs
Posted on 12/08/2013 6:09:08 AM PST by bestintxas
When the Pelosi-Reid-Obama troika triumphantly celebrated cramming through the ACA (Affordable Care Act) over majority sentiment, they crowed that this was the president's signature achievement and ACA soon took on the name of its creator, ObamaCare. Though not one of them, nor any of the Democrats in the Senate who voted it into law uni-partisanly had read it, they all assured us that we'd grow to really, really like it. Boy, were they wrong.
We've paid almost a billion dollars to a Canadian firm whose vice-president is a college buddy of Michelle Obama's from their black radical days at Princeton to create a webpage to enroll people mandated by this law to do so, Obama having turned down the U.S. firm IBM's offer to create it for free. It doesn't work. Moreover, the continuing problems with this webpage -- and law -- are so substantial and intractable that the White House propaganda machine has stopped referring to it as ObamaCare or even the Affordable Care Act. Everyone now knows that for most people, the plan loaded with mandated coverage to curry favors with privileged tranches of voters like college girls who want free contraceptives and abortion coverage and to permit anyone to sign up after they found out they need costly care, not before, is far more expensive than what they were previously paying for medical insurance. It's some kind of no-name thing. Either that or, to be an honest descriptor, we could call it the UFA (Unaffordable Care Act). Under any name it's dramatically swamping the president and his party's standing among voters.
Younger voters who passionately supported the president in both election shots are running away from UFA, a law which depends on them to foot a disproportionate share of the financial burden:

As long as Obamacare is law, he wins.
Win the battle, lose the war.
It's not his fault. He didn't know icebergs existed, or that his signature initiative was fatally flawed.
As the old saying goes: success has many fathers; failure is an orphan.
Unlike the Titanic's captain, he wasn't urged by management to go faster than was prudent; and unlike the Titanic's captain, he measures success by how many people are left on the boat to go down with him!
Republicans will be controlling the Senate
Hard to get too excited about that prospect. Pubbies will squander their advantage like they always do. :)
Actually he is a talking wooden man on the bow of the Titanic, put there by the same controllers who plotted the course heading straight for the iceberg. The goal is to destroy the ship, they will be quite happy to see the figurehead go down with it.
>> Another 10 months of this fiasco, and Republicans will be controlling the Senate.
If the republicrats were skilled, and articulate, and principled, and well-led, and courageous, and had the will to win — I would agree with you.
Unfortunately the party has NONE of those traits. None.
Looked at another way — if the (R) party was competent we wouldn’t have Bozo in there in the first place.
I hope that will be true. But I don't trust Republicans either. The Republicans that win are usually "reach across the aisle", moderate Democrat Party wannabes. They will be grovelling in front Harry Reid and Obama as soon as they take their seats. I expect we'll see nothing but the likes Boehners and McConnells in office.
THE elephant in the room is the future deaths of people, especially children, with serious illnesses who have lost their insurance and so, for no good reason, will begin dying.
No talking point or photo opp will bring them back.
Lady MacBeth will have nothing on the people who forced this law through against our will because the blood on their hands will be VISIBLE.
Wait untill we begin to see the funerals, with little caskets, of children who died because their chemo was no longer affordable.
I am so angered and horrified by this, and Americans will react the same way.
No one ever accused democrats of being well mannered, sensible or honest.
It’s obama’s law but all the problems are the fault of Bush!
It’s as simple as that.
Make mine tea(party)!
Is there any way to force the full implementation of the law? W/O exemptions?
I think everyone would want it repealed then.
Good post. It doesn’t appear that the Democrats are aware that the ship is sinking fast nor do they fully understand the consequences of this legislation’s impact with reality.
Being a Democrat means never having to acknowledge the consequences of anything.
We've paid almost a billion dollars to a Canadian firm whose vice-president is a college buddy of Michelle Obama's from their black radical days at Princeton to create a webpage to enroll people mandated by this law to do so, Obama having turned down the U.S. firm IBM's offer to create it for free.
The fact that this president has given a pass to some and changed the 'law' for others makes Obamacare Null & Void.....the Congress and Senate should repeal it entirely on those questionable constitutional merits and lawlessness alone.
Don't worry about Barry. He already has military helicopters assigned to get his ass and Bo's off the ship before it goes down.
Maybe if McConnell is made an example, the remaining "leadership" will stand up and get with the program of governing FOR the people.
We are in complete agreement. As long as Obamacare is the law, he wins.
LOL, that one guy on the left of the pic looks like he is carrying Pelosi’s purse (closer examination shows he is not, but it makes a good story).
“’I’m really good at killing people’ - book claims Obama told aides”
IBM would have built the website for free? There should be a hanging over this fiasco.
I disagree, to the strident left he didn't go far enough, fast enough.. In their warped minds Obama is a failure because we don't have socialized medical care right now.
Nasty, angry German Shepards.
This HAS TO BE the most nauseating picture ever taken in the 100 odd year history of photography!!!!
It should be banned from FR permanently!
It’s the Ur F’d Act.
My mistake. You're correct.
Right now they are winning just like Charlie Sheen was winning.
Perhaps the author was trying to name it something similar to “uffa”, the Italian expression for frustration, annoyance, disgust ... or just simply, phew!
That's why you will have to beat them like a rented mule.
That's fine. Trust the TEApublicans instead.
If they fizzle out, get new ones.
Didn’t realize IBM was going to do it for free. The 600 + million that went to Moochie’s buddy, could have been used to feed the poor. Also buy all of them health insurance for many years to come, under the old system.
Exactly right. We've only seen the tip of the iceberg of such stories. As Americans begin losing their loved ones with regularity because of Obamacare, expect to see Democrats openly running away from Obama and his heinous Act.
Heck, they're already doing it. They won't even call it 'Obamacare' anymore. They're trying to surgically disconnect Obama from his historic boondoggle by dropping his name from it. Good luck with that, Democrats. His name is forever branded on it now. Yours too.
That’s a weird photo. Besides the guy on the front row carrying a purse, and holding hands with the guy on his left, Pelousy looks like a total idiot with her big gavel and that stupid grin with her head thrown back.
Isn't that Stenchy Hoer and Elijah Cummings?
And that is the bald truth.
Yup, and that’s why I named them republicants
Why would anyone use a dog to hunt Democrat politicians? You use a lure. You know how some deer hunters use female deer urine to lure in a buck? Same idea for luring in a Democrat politician. You take a hundred dollar bill and pee on it and then throw it in the river. The Democrat politicians will come pouring out of the bushes because everyone knows that Democrat politicians can piss money away like crazy.
Have you even seen these Republicans?
When have you known them to ever keep a political advantage for that long without pissing it away? ("Paging Paul Ryan, Patty Murray on line one.")
That's not running away from Obama.
That's continuing to try and shield Obama from any responsibility.
No, it's both. Call it 'damage control', 're-branding', or sleight of hand. Any way you look at it, it's the first step of retreat from something the Dems feel has become politically toxic.
Right now, it's just the name 'Obamacare' they're distancing themselves from. Sure, that's a naked attempt to sever His Heinous from his signature 'accomplishment' in the minds of the public, but why? It's because they've already recognized that they've unleashed something that will ultimately do great harm to the nation.
For now, they're puzzling over what to do to avoid the fallout that's headed their way. I think lots of them would vote to either make major structural changes to Obamacare, or repeal it altogether. It's already become apparent that this thing is going to end in disaster for the people, and their party, if something drastic isn't done.
Unfortunately, Big Guy is standing in the way of doing anything to fundamentally alter his glorious Socialist plan. If he doesn't soften his stance, and affirmatively communicate that he's ready to make some serious changes to this abomination, his minions are going to defect from him en masse.
