A Bridge Too Far-Fetched

Hell hath no fury like a woman disillusioned about a politician?
So it's not his socialist mindset or his unconstitutional actions as president that you focus on. No, it's a stupid, merit-less conspiracy theory that drives you. Seriously?

Myths to Ditch in 2014

Unfortunately, I tend to think that the majority of 'Conservatives' hold that belief intellectually, not practically. I doubt that the 46% of non tax-paying Americans are all far left lunatics. Far too many others are recipients, directly or indirectly, of the pork brought home by their senators and representatives. For our country to head back towards its political roots, we will have to be as tenacious and resolute as the founding fathers with regard to holding the elected officials accountable for their votes and working within the local government and educational communities to get that happening at the lowest level of the country. Sadly, I don't see the average person being that long-sighted or politically engaged. Our society is at the point where that attitude is too demanding and too intrusive for our citizens.

Disinformation behind Obamacare runs deep

While all of Jonah's points are true, I wish he and the rest of those who oppose Obamacare would never fail to mention that Obamacare is designed to fail as a precursor to a single payer government program. The fact that it's a hugely expensive disaster designed to collapse any of the existing private or government-run mechanisms after costing the taxpayer untold amounts of grief and money makes it all the more onerous.

No, the problem with single-payer is that it's a euphemism for the Federal government taking over all health care completely. Think Medicare writ large.

The biggest problem I see with letting it crash and burn: The real agenda for the progressives has always been to create this monstrosity and then herd everyone into a single payer plan when it becomes evident that Obamacare is unworkable. When has gone awry with their plan is the time table. They expected the train wreck to take a few years. Instead, it's happened before the train has even left the station. There were a LOT of people that knew it wasn't workable, but most of the folks responsible for passing this mess and most of the electorate thought it was a great idea in spite of all the evidence to the contrary. So what's to stop them from going forward with the move to single payer when most of the same players are still in office? Are any of those same folks going to be any more likely to say "no" to single payer? Doubtful.

Have you missed that all of those PRIVATE companies were being told that their existing plans were either illegal or that the cost of keeping of keeping their existing plans would sky-rocket? They really didn't have much choice.
