The legacy news media are once again doting on the porcine Affordable Care Act with an extravagance not lavished on a pig since P.G. Wodehouse created the immortal Empress of Blandings. If you are unfamiliar with the latter, she was a gigantic Berkshire sow who was treated by her aristocratic owner with a level of reverence that caused his friends and family to question his grip on reality. Likewise, after an all-too-brief flirtation with fact-based journalism inspired by the bungled rollout of Healthcare.gov, mainstream reporters have reverted to coverage of Obamacare that suggests they, too, may be delusional.
Most voters view Obamacare as a bloated, stinking beast. Yet, if you browse the web for recent news on the presidents signature domestic achievement your search engine will return countless articles describing it as a spectacular success story.

Sad fact of the matter is that a huge percentage of the population do not understand the difference between healthcare and insurance. The media machine propagates this disinformation by reporting that X million people now have healthcare. When the subsidized lower class groups go in for treatment (healthcare), they will find out they have to pay a huge deductible before the insurance will pay a dime. ( except for a few token freebies such as birth control and check ups)
They can't put it on the internet if it isn't true....
Didn’t Sarah say something about that like, “Put lipstick on a pig, you still have a pig”?
Same thing with odumbocare.
The media thinks failure is the new success with Obama they have a God.
“Most voters view Obamacare as a bloated, stinking beast. Yet, if you browse the web for recent news on the presidents signature domestic achievement your search engine will return countless articles describing it as a spectacular success story.”
That’s why I only get my news here on FR. I only want the truth.
