Ted Cruz was correct in taking a stand to defund and then delay ObamaCare but that was simply to engrave it on the minds of low-information voters just who is responsible for the pain they are about to feel. But now that Democrats up for re-election have finally figured out the truth about Obama's signature legislation they've begun clamoring for a delay. Their biggest obstacle will be Obama. His arrogant stubbornness will be his undoing. While Progressive's crow about finally achieving one of their most sought after goals, universal healthcare, it may well prove their most disastrous setback. ObamaCare may be the cure for Liberalism.
There may in fact be fewer part-time jobs but considering how much the workforce has shrunk in the last 5 years that should come as no surprise.

5 Scandalous Obamacare Horror Stories

Judging by the fact that President Obama has illegally issued over 2500 waivers to his crony pals and also illegally delayed implementation of two major portions of the law for purely political purposes it’s reasonable to assume Democrats understand just how bad ObamaCare really is. Recall nearly 50% of eligible voters failed to exercise that right in the 2012 election. Obviously they need something to get them motivated and it appears ObamaCare will be that motivator. The 2014 election will likely see a much higher than usual turnout and will likely prove to be a bad time to be a Democrat. Ironically, the Progressive’s dream of universal healthcare may prove to a devastating setback to their agenda.

Mr. Shedlock tells us on the one hand that we live in deflationary times (previous posts) and then writes about the "Fed's inflationary boom-bust practices." I guess one needs to be an economist to understand.
Now in Trials: ObamaCare, a cure for Liberalism.
Thinking back to the 2012 elections recall that only about 50% of eligible voters chose to make their voices heard. Despite mid-terms usually get lower turnout and less interest this election may be very different. The people being outraged and hurt financially by ObamaCare will be exceedingly motivated to show up at the polls. I seriously doubt they'll be voting for Democrats.

"But bubbles, by definition, collapse. And collapsing bubbles are deflationary." But are they really deflationary? Does one account for an expanding bubble as inflation? If not, then it would be difficult to justify saying its deflationary when they collapse.
Ultimately it is the American people who will decide whether this law is good or bad. Judging by the fact that President Obama has issued over 2500 waivers to his crony pals and illegally delayed implementation of two major portions of the law for purely political purposes it seems likely the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare) will negatively impact the middle class. Of the 50% of eligible voters who did not turn out in 2012 those hurt by the law will likely be actively engaged in the mid-term elections in 2014. They won’t likely be voting for Democrats thanks largely to the stand a few GOP lawmakers have taken. After the elections, if insufficient political power exists to override Obama vetoes and roll back the most destructive and onerous portions of ObamaCare it may well set up 2016 as the Democrat’s Waterloo. ObamaCare may truly prove to be a severe setback for Liberalism.

Ultimately it is the American people who will decide whether this law is good or bad. Judging by the fact that President Obama has issued over 2500 waivers to his crony pals and illegally delayed implementation of two major portions of the law for purely political purposes my guess is ObamaCare will definitely hurt the middle class. Of the 50% of eligible voters who did not turn out in 2012 those hurt by the law will be out in force come 2014. They will be hopping mad and they will not be voting for Democrats. ObamaCare may be the ultimate cure for Liberalism.

Ron Paul Ruins a Great Economic Rant

Does the definition of "economist" somewhere contain language as to being able to totally ignore reality when arguing some arcane point. I can't think of a single item I'm now paying less for today. If I was buying a home, perhaps, but can one consider the popping of an asset bubble to truly be defaltionary?
