Earlier today the US Court of Appeals dealt Obamacare a blow. The 4th Circuit likewise issued a ruling, favorable to Obamacare, but when the issue ends up in the lap of the US Supreme Court, it could mean bad news for Obamacare….and bad news that the DEMOCRATS INFLICTED UPON THEMSELVES and ALL THE PEOPLE WHO LIKE OBAMACARE AND HOPE TO BENEFIT IT. The Democrats should be ashamed and they sure should not be blaming anyone but themselves.
The Democrats could have avoided this bad news IF THEY HAD JUST READ THE BILL BEFORE THEY PASSED IT. At the time the bill was passed, Democrats were totally in the driver’s seat and could have made any changes necessary. The problem in the bill now is one that existed when the bill voted on! But instead…the Democrats didn’t bother themselves to read the bill or have their staffs read it. They just voted — like a herd a cattle because then House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told them, ‘vote yes.’ And you remember her famous line — something to the effect that it needed to pass it so that they could find out what is in it. That was dumb…that is dumb.
Since then? The Democrats have lost the House and can’t easily fix (pass) what they might want to. The train left on that one!
Right now the Democrats have the Senate, and while that certainly is not a sure thing, they have more power now than they will have if they also lose the Senate in November. There is a high risk of the Dems will lose the Senate in November so Senate Majority Leader better get to work and NOW!
And it isn’t just today…there are other problems with Obamacare that have arisen because Democrats could not bother themselves to do something so basic as to read the bill before they voted for it.
Have you seen how many Democrats are up in arms about the medical device tax in Obamacare? It was there when the bill was voted on. Yes…they voted yes for the bill..and then sometime later discovered an ugly tax in Obamacare…and then they discovered that they had many constituents and donors who make medical devices.
No boo hoo for those Democrats. They did it to themselves because they did not bother to do their jobs. It just is not hard to read what you vote on and especially so monumental as changing the health care of the entire nation.
Yes…they shot themselves in the foot because they were too lazy to just read to see what they were voting on.
