    I think right-wing wonks learned their lesson in trying to privatize a portion of social security.

    A lousy 2%.

    More evidence of the “ad-hockiness” of this administration of amateurs.

    *** coming up with a reform plan is the easiest part of the process***
    Especially when you outsource it to a one party congress. i’m assuming that in this context ‘reform plan’ is to plan what ‘reform school’ is to school: A place where you never want to go.

    Obamacare is so unpopular that the GOP, which ran 2 presidential elections based on their opposition to it

    lost both times.

    Wonder what would happen if people supported the law?

    WRM and the right completely blew it with their hysteria over Obamacare’s costs. Turns out CBO overestimated in 94% of cases the cost of premiums. Most are going to be quite moderate and lower than expected

    And I’m sure the sound we’ll hear from WRM and all the rest of they pollyannas is

    chirp…chirp….chirp….

    Obama did nothing to address the real issue with health care costs because that was not his goal. His goal was redistribution; from a perverted concept of social justice. He doesn’t care about the sausage or how its made. He only cares about advancing leftism regardless of the costs.

    And we knew this up front when he lied to Joe the plumber telling him its good for everybody when you spread the wealth around. 5 years on reality disproves that lie. Redistribution is only good for the recipients of the redistribution and not its donors.

    I made a parody video illustrating the lies of Obamacare and its effects.

    Please check it out.

    Cheers,
