The Folly of #Obamacare….

When he was first elected, President Obama could seemingly do no wrong. His speeches were greeted as if he was God’s own herald, and he was showing the path to Heaven.

Now? Not so much.

Luckily for us, we have located his Achilles Heel: Obama himself. Or, to put a finer point on it, Obama’s abnormally outsized ego.

Obama Ego

Remember, this is the guy who informed us that:

“I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters,’’ he told campaign aides when he was running for the White House. “I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that . . . I’m a better political director than my political director.’’

A humble man, he ain’t.

Make no mistake: even though Socialized Medicine had been a Leftist fever dream for decades, it was President Obama’s unparalleled opinion of his own infallibility which was instrumental in The Affordable Care Act becoming law.

Yet now, with the planned roll-out of Obamacare supposedly imminent, all of his cocky promises and puffery have culminated in exactly what one might expect: sky-rocketing costs, chaos and failure.


The examples are everywhere:

As a result of all this, popular opposition to Obamacare has now reached an all-time high, this occurring a full 3+ years after the law was passed. That’s 3+ years that the Administration has had to get their act together and prove all of us naysayers wrong.

Can I say “I told you so” yet?

Yeah, I think I can.

I told you so meter

In response to this epic failure, the Obama Administration knew something had to be done. Did they roll up their sleeves to fix the problems? Or did they meekly come before the American people and apologize for making all those multitudinous promises, none of which will be kept?

The answer is: neither, of course.

Hypnotized 6333No, instead of choosing either of those honorable options, they’ve mounted a full-frontal assault marketing campaign to convince you that Obamacare is the greatest accomplishment Of. All. Time.

And to that end, they’re now employing librarians, the HHS, and even your own children in an effort to brainwash you into disbelieving yer’ own lying eyes. Heck, Obama even forced his Cabinet officials to hawk O-Care during this past year’s graduation commencement speeches.

When you have to resort to boring a bunch of restless, soon-to-be graduates and their families with the Wonders of Socialized Medicine, you know you’ve got a real winner on your hands.

Thankfully, the NFL begged off from joining these Medicinal Minions from Mordor. The NBA was also approached to “help the cause’, but has not agreed …yet. 

All of this means, simply, that this entire fiasco is doomed to fail. The trick will be in not allowing Obamacare’s failure to trigger a failure in our economy. And THAT means we’ve still got work to do, and we need to work quickly.

First, we have to keep informing the nation of the facts, which is why Paul Ryan just asked the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) to recalculate the cost of Obamacare, in light of the Administration’s impromptu delay in implementation.

Secondly, we must continue to mock this hemorrhoidal healthcare law incessantly, because the first step of actual legislative repeal is for people to feel free to mock it. It needn’t be vulgar or mean-spirited to be effective, either.

Let Jay Leno show you how it’s done:

And last but most importantly, do NOT give in to the Leftist’s meme of inevitability. This monolithic monstrosity is staggering under its own weight: all we need to do is keep up the effort and a full repeal is still yet possible.

Have no fear: we’ll be helped every step of the way by our ultimate weapon, which is President Obama himself. Every time he opens his mouth nowadays, he makes the dichotomy between reality and his envisioned Statist Utopia ever more stark:

“We can’t just take comfort in being cynical.

We all have a stake in government success, because the government is us, and we’re doing things right.”

Oh, that’s just rich.

Keep talking, champ. You’re helping us more than you know.

Going forward, this is a great first step. From Allahpundit over at HotAir:

“Boehner to Obama: We want the individual mandate delayed for a year just like the employer mandate was…”

Read it all.

    Two major health insurers have already announced that they will pull out of the California market. Which, of course, is EXACTLY what O-Care intended all along. This malarkey about “exchanges” is just that. They KNEW it wouldn’t work. So….you may ask: “Then WHY implement it?”. Simple. Let the situation deteriorate with reduced access, dysfunctional exchanges, and longer lines, and people (those who LIVE for handouts) will be screaming for “Single Payer”, which is what the Left has wanted all along. Remember the Great Prevaricator in Chief’s remarks from a while back:

    “I happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal health care program.” (applause) “I see no reason why the United States of America, the wealthiest country in the history of the world, spending 14 percent of its Gross National Product on health care cannot provide basic health insurance to everybody. And that’s what Jim is talking about when he says everybody in, nobody out. A single payer health care plan, a universal health care plan. And that’s what I’d like to see. But as all of you know, we may not get there immediately. Because first we have to take back the White House, we have to take back the Senate, and we have to take back the House.”

  2. Why are they even asking to have the bill scored? They should be jumping up and down about Obama and his illegal move. Picking and choosing what he wants to do.

    • Attack all fronts, as far as I’m concerned.
      Attack the cost, attack his arbitrary application of the stupid law itself, attack, attack, attack.

      This ridiculous law is unconstitutional on its face, and I don’t care WHAT John Roberts says. It needs to go…, the sooner the better.
