Skip to comments.Deutsch's Fear: Failed Obamacare Will Set Big Government Back 'For A Generation'
Posted on 11/19/2013 6:48:42 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest
After my animated description of President Obama's strangely listless conference call of yesterday, my wonderful wife encouraged me to be kind.
So let me say something sympathetic about Donny Deutsch. Sure, he's a member of the Manhattan/Hamptons liberal axis. But I sense he's more of a old-fashioned Dem, someone, for example, who embraces American exceptionalism. So when on today's Morning Joe the adman admitted that the Obamacare failure might set back progressive government for an entire generation, it's noteworthy. Adding to liberal heartburn, Howard Fineman later said "I sort of agree with Donny" and that Obamacare could be a "huge disaster for Democrats."

What will Dems do if they conclude Deutsch is right? Ping to Today show list.
This morning I realize the MSM has suddenly pivoted away from calling it Obamacare towards the Affordable Care Act.
My read on that is the Dems are attempting to de-couple it from Obama’s ego so that he’ll be less resistant when they finally shut the door and demand that he sign a repeal bill.
It looks like Obamas second term agenda has been flushed down the tiolet:
His going out campaigning for these isnt worth a crap anymore.
Looks like the wheels are coming offfffffff!!!!!
There is no health care in Obamacare. That should be obvious by now.
Dem should be very worried about another shoe/boot dropping on Obamacare. Its like in a boxing match when one of the fighters is wobbling; at that point it doesn’t take much to put him down on the canvass for good. Obamacare could be a knockout punch.
For the Dems it would be wise to follow the old Wall Street tactic of cutting your losses.
Only a generation? I was hoping forever.
Why isn’t anybody on our side saying this is the greatest thing for the advancement of liberty and freedom since Reagan was elected? Maybe because most Republicans are secretly dictator-wannabes and support the despot? Why is it that hardly anybody talks of liberty and freedom these days (except Limbaugh, Levin, Palin, Cruz and Lee)?
But Obamacare or no, I don’t see any backpedaling.
Hell, the Commie/pinko/Liberals have actually bought into the idea that the ‘Pubbies sabotaged Obamacare.
My hope is that this will provide a valuable “Teachable Moment” for Americans, as to how ultimately Big Government always fails.
They’re all about forcing their ideology on the rest of us,
but when the obvious [to us] failure of that ideology comes to light,
they run from it, try to back it off, and force it on us more slowly, like it will work then.
No doubt it’s in need of a serious reset if nothing else. The friggin’ rules and regs associated with obiecare dwarf the original bill. Who really knows all of it? NOBODY!
Leftists will always blame the “counterrevolutionaries” for the failure of leftist/Marxist policy.
I wouldn’t call it “shameful” to take joy in the downfall of evil...
The more accurate title for the ACA is National Socialist healthcare rationing. The glitch-filled rollout and the one year delay are just diversions from the real point of National Socialist healthcare: total control of the unruly peasants via the federal government's total discretion to set premiums and offer or refuse health services. This will go beyond a "chilling effect" to killing American freedom. We already saw this abuse with the IRS targeting conservative groups before the 2012 election, so don't tell me it won't happen. (Incidentally, political misuse of the IRS was one of the articles of impeachment against Nixon.)
Here is how the "progressives" will misuse National Socialist healthcare. This is what they will say: "Mr. Jones, I'm sorry but your daughter's operation has been cancelled. We have exceeded our quota for the year. Try to get on the list again next year...if she's still alive." This is what they will mean. "Mr. Jones, you are still being a bad comrade! Not only did you belong to a tea party group back in 2009, but you are still making anti-government comments on the internet. Maybe if you showed a more progressive attitude, your daughter might get that operation...."
That's why I call it National Socialist healthcare rationing: it will mean the end of American freedom. Who will risk appearing "anti-government" if I means the withholding of medical treatments from "bad comrades?"
Welcome to the USSA, comrades!
