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!
That will be on the Republicans. If they continue to elect politicians that want to "fix government", it will be a one or two presidents.
If they elect politicians that want to dismantle the Washington we have today back to it's constitutionally mandated limits, it could be for a many generations.
THE DOGS DON'T LIKE IT.
“Dem should be very worried about another shoe/boot dropping on Obamacare.”
Next shoe: January when they all realize they can’t keep their doctors either.
“Why isnt 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)?”
A wise candidate will realize he or she represents the entire electorate, no just the base.
There are people in the electorate that want Obamacare to work. Additionally, doing the happy dance will anger media members, sure they hate you, but why inspire them?
For those on “our side”, (I quote that because I’m more of a libertarian), it’s best to be statesman like. Let the bill collapse from it’s own weight. Then, offer plans to clean up the mess. Also known as governing.
There are subtle ways to further the cause of freedom. Unfortunately, with most politicians, it’s so subtle it’s undetectable. Most, regardless of party, see to waft along the growing winds of tyranny and despotism.
Dem will do what dems do...
They’ll come up with a new ‘bait and switch’... Here’s how it will work:
Since insurance companies are in on the scam - Obama will add a bunch of new citizen groups to the gravy train - they’ll get ‘free’ insurance now (the bait) that they’ll lose in a year and have to pay for through the nose (the switch). Insurance companies get their money - citizens are shut up - and everything’s paid for by adding massively to the national debt.
People who were cancelled will get upgraded Obabmacare insurance for the same price as their old (inferior?) policy (the bait) and next year when there’s no one to fight for them, they’ll get the BILL (that will bankrupt some families - the switch). In the mean time to pay for these bribes, Obama will print and borrow more money - further weakening the economy.
Lucky for Obama the New York Times’ boys will be lined up on their knees ready to kiss Obama’s butt and they’ll ‘miss’ this scam just like they ‘missed’ all the other ones... Think ‘PRNewswire for the DNC’...
From their lips to God’s ears!
Well, you’re right; but it usually covers personal joy in any one’s misfortune. But, point well-taken.
Two thousand pages of legislation, and 20 thousand pages of regulations, are too many pages for a big government instruction manual, or the manuals on how to use the manual.
The current Obama/Dem playbook is soooo out of Atlas Shrugged, where the looters pull out another “bait and switch” to buy themselves a few more months, when it will be time for the next “bait & switch”, hopefully to get them through the next election.
I don’t think he was.
The “Shaden” part means “shameful”.
Sound like Germany in the 1930’s to you?
they wont stop, they will push for single payer, blaming the insurance companies...saying it should not have to be this complicated.
Deutsch is a Douche.
I would bet, if you probed a bit, you’d find that this person is heavily invested in the righteous feeling he gets from advocating that everyone get healthcare.
Notice it’s not about the actual results, or the workability, but in the feeling you get for being a “good person who cares”.
Democrats are changing the name so down the road they can blame this horror on Republicans. It's hard to blame something called "Obamacare" on the GOP... even if the suck-ups at the New York Times were willing to push it...
Watching the order of the MSM switch-over to the new name will tell us how high they jump when their dem master tell them to jump. I assume NBC and MSNBC have already switched to the 'Affordable Care' lie.
I totally noticed that this weekend and thought so for the same reason. If any Freepers can get this idea to Levin, Hannity and Rush, it would be great.
Probably just continue to LIE as usual.
It’s a good thing Romney lost, or this would be playing out very differently.
“Failed Obamacare Will Set Big Government Back ‘For A Generation’”
This is a reasonable expectation but with our loveable RINO’s/GOPe about to take charge, it’s a pipe dream. The GOP needs a good house cleaning as much as the Dems need to be put in their place, if that does not happen, then “What Difference Does It Make?”
We must restore the Constitution.
Thugs seem to ‘happen upon’ the same tactics ... on the brighter side it makes it easier for us to spot ‘em...
The GOPe did such a wonderful job the last time they had the keys to the car.
“huge disaster for Democrats.”
I sure hope Donny is right on this one!
