Extremist terrorist takes America hostage, refuses to enact Obamacare as written

February 12th, 2014

If it’s so goddamned great, why is everybody running like hell from implementing it?

On Monday, Obama announced yet another delay to the law’s requirement. Now, in 2015, the penalties will only hit employers who have 100 or more employees. These larger employers will only be penalized if they fail to offer coverage to 70 percent of their full-time employees, rather than the 95 percent previously required. This will push headlines of businesses cutting full-time workers beyond the 2014 elections at a time when Obamacare’s mounting failures are already a millstone around the necks of Democrats.

The employer mandate move is merely the latest in a long list of unilateral changes Obama has made to his signature law. His administration delayed the implementation of income verification requirements for those applying for federal health insurance subsidies; minimized the impact of a “reinsurance fee” on labor union health care plans; and announced he wouldn’t enforce rules in the law that had spurred insurers to cancel millions of health care plans, undercutting his promise that those who liked their plan could keep it.

The actual text of the legislation he signed is secondary to what best serves his political purpose at the time. While Republicans are attacked for wanting to sabotage Obamacare whenever they propose reasonable changes through the constitutional legislative process, it has been deemed perfectly acceptable for Obama to unilaterally make sweeping alterations.

Well, of course. It’s what used to be quaintly deemed “royal privilege.” If Republicans had any balls at all, they’d ram it right down the son of a bitch’s throat by insisting it be implemented exactly as written, precisely on schedule. The American sheeple voted for it; they by God ought to get it, good and hard, all the way to the very hilt.

    "If Republicans had any balls at all, they’d ram it right down the son of a bitch’s throat by insisting it be implemented exactly as written, precisely on schedule."

    I've thought about this exact same strategy, but I think it'd be a bad idea. Obama and his ilk would love nothing more than to have the Republican party getting involved in rolling out Obamacare, as it would defer some blame away from his own party (which currently owns this train wreck entirely).

    When the inevitable meltdown happens, Obama could simply step back and point to the Republicans and say "Hey, I wanted to make some changes to prevent this, but those mean ol' Republicans wouldn't let me!" Then the media would obediently fall into line and shift the blame away from the Demo'rats.

    Oh, but they'll be doing that anyway. In fact, they already have; remember how they tried to blame the joke of a website on GOP "obstructionism" and refusal to help out? That's one of the lessons the GOP really needs to learn: no matter what they do, the Dems will blame them for it, and no matter how many times they bend over and "compromise" by letting them have what they want in exchange for future promises that will somehow never materialize, they'll be slammed as "unreasonable" and "extreme" and never get one ounce worth of credit beyond an occasional pat on the head for being a "maverick" or a "different kind of Republican." That being the case, why not do the right thing and go down fighting for something worthwhile for a change? Assuming most GOPers even know what that is anymore.
