Notorious DUer Will Pitt Turns Angrily Against Obamacare
NewsBusters ^ | March 19, 2014 | P.J. Gladnick

Posted on 03/19/2014 11:35:39 AM PDT by PJ-Comix

Harry Reid is going to have a hard time portraying Will as a Koch brothers shill...

William Rivers Pitt, a leftwing editor at TruthOut,  whose foibles have been chronicled in NewsBusters and is probably best known for his journalism "scoop" of predicting the indictment of Karl Rove on May 12, 2006, is back in the spotlight again. While waiting 24 business hours to elapse for the Rove indictment to finally take place, Pitt shocked many at the Democratic Underground by posting an extremely angry attack, What I've learned about the Affordable Care Act, upon Obamacare due to a bad personal experience with it. In order to fully appreciate how far Pitt has turned against Obamacare, we need to go to his DU post back in December when he was proclaiming his love for Obama's signature plan...before he even experienced it:

Notice that Pitt wishes for a Time Machine so he can correct his many mistakes? He would be spending quite a bit of time going back in time because of the corrections that would need to be made.

He is right. ObamaCare is full of head fakes, double speak, catch 22’s, and flat out lies.

Skyrocketing premiums is just the beginning.

The reality is that a deductible skyrocketing by double or triple means that a family effectively has ZERO insurance until they hit the magic 3,4,5,6 or 7 thousand dollar of their deductible.

And we haven’t mentioned doubled co-pays yet.

I’ll say iot once again. Liberals are really just not very bright people. They are however, really very emotional. Emotion is everything to them, common sense, reason, and logic? Not so much.

Well as they often say... a conservative is a liberal mugged by reality.

Here’s my earnest advice. Drop the grudges. Drop the “right” to pillory him. Say to the prodigal, “Welcome home.”

If Pitt predicted the Rove indictment in 2006, then his 24-hour wait is more like 96 months. He obviously uses the same math as the Democrat machine in Chicago.

Hahaha...reminds me of an OLD John Conlee song;

Rose Colored Glasses

I don’t know why I keep on believin’ you need me,
When you’ve proved so many times that it ain’t true,
And I can’t find one good reason for stayin’,
Maybe my leaving would be the best for you,

But these rose colored glasses, that I’m looking through
Show ooo.......nly the beauty, cause they hide all the truth,
And they let me hold on to the good times, the good lines,
The ones I used to hear when I held you,
And they keep me from feeling so cheated, defeated,
When reflections in your eyes show me a fool

But these rose colored glasses, that I’m looking through
Show ooo.......nly the beauty, cause they hide all the truth,
So I just keep on hopin’, believin that maybe,
By countin the many times that I’ve tried,
You’ll believe me when I say I love you and
I’ll lay these rose colored glasses aside,

But these rose colored glasses, that I’m looking through
Show ooo.......nly the beauty, cause they hide all the truth.

I am feeling a bit scared for him if that is him. I hope he was hacked. We democrats are supposed to be above the juvenile name calling and be proactive with finding solutions. We can solve this problem if we work together. We all want single payer.

That would be a useful kind of “single payer.”

The insurance biz depersonalized medicine.

I like the idea of clinics that offer clinic coverage at subscription prices.

He's going to get kicked off campus when Ezekiel finds out.

John Gibson had Ezekiel Emanuel on his 18 March radio show. Emanuel's normal mode is belligerence when outside his New Left Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, psycho spoiled brat realm.

Screaming "Lies!" at virtually everything Gibson reported from abundant news sources Emanuel went on to claim that any criticism is solely because people do not yet understand the marvel of Obamacare. "Read my book!" he demanded. "Give it time! "

The antics are the tactics of Mau-mauing used by New Left Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, psycho spoiled brats a generation ago.

As comical as most Monty Python Flying Circus skits.. it's like an Obama jivethon lying circus.

(I'd provide a link but I was shocked to see that Gibson charges $5.00 to hear one of his shows. That's nuts.)

Many years ago, I had an idea for a book.

This would be a “Coffee Table Book”, with a twist.

The book can be read from “Left to right” or “Right to left”.

From either position the opposing page would represent the opposing view, but it would be upside down.

Take any number of significant political stories that are very well know and display both the difference in mainstream reports, as well as blog commentaries.

Just a crazy thought.

Nobody is talking about THIS yet either ....

Are ObamaCare's Tax Credits Harmless? The Little Understood Dark Side Of The Subsidies

Just one of the money quotes from the article:

By accepting a tax credit, low-income or lower-middle class families face significant tax ramifications and potential financial risk. Congress has changed the rules twice on consumers for the credits, making the income cliffs steeper, and fully equipping the IRS to claw back overpaid subsidies (unlike the individual mandate penalty).

I thank this lefty for being honest and good luck to his wife with the MS.

I'm with you on that. I read his statement/rant, and he put the blame squarely on Obama. He didn't try to shift the blame to the House Republicans, or to the Tea Partiers, or to Rush Limbaugh. He blamed Obama for this disaster. And of course he is correct.

It’s interesting that many of Pitt’s responders are blaming the Republicans (I take that’s what they mean when they say ReThuglican), however...

The ACA passed without ANY Republican votes. Not one. A TOTAL democratic party bill.

So, blaming the Republicans is factually wrong.

“I thank this lefty for being honest and good luck to his wife with the MS. Which is what his beef is about....

That’s why the old “if you like your health care you can keep it” lie was so critical. Because the sheeple that had insurance figured, “it’s not gonna affect me” so they let everyone else be thrown to the wolves. And all was fine. Until they found out that they were the next in line for the wolves meal.

And the thing about lefties is...suppose Pitt finds a way to get his wife’s meds approved? Then he’ll go right back to loving Obamacare. And to hell with anyone else. Selfish bastards, all of them.

I blame Obama AND his party. Please do not let Nancy Pelosi off the hook, as she laughed at us all with her lavender pantsuit and giant gavel walk, where Elijah Cummings SWORE he was spit on by TEA partiers who called him the N-word (with nothing like it in photos or video tape seen), or Harry Reid for all his sweetheart deals and strong arming his fellow democrats to vote for it.

And Deval Patrick and the democrats of Massachusetts. Even after Scott Brown was elected, they delayed seating him until Temporary democrat Kirk voted Yea.

The democrats ARE to blame. They own it along with Obama!

The people at that site are certified PSYCHO!!

First, it’s republican’s fault because they blocked legislation that would make obamacare perfect (hello!!! reid would not allow one freaking amendment by the republicans, and not one voted for obamcare!)

Second, it’s not zero’s fault because he tried his best, and had to start somewhere, and don’t worry, it’s only the beginning (three freaking years later) and zero will fix it!

The sycophantic worship of zero over there is disturbing and disgusting.

I would love to see pictures of the posters at that site, they all must have brown lips from kissing zero’s b#tt!!!!!
