Salon.com Asst. Editor Elias Isquith Declares Obamacare Implementation “Sabotage”
All I did was demand Republicans insist Obamacare be implemented as it was designed and written. After all, the President himself tweeted out his signature on the law and declared it “the law of the land.”I’m sure Salon.com Assistant Editor Elias Isquith thinks Obamacare is the “law of the land” too. But he calls my demands that the law be faithfully implemented “sabotage.”His view is a reflection of the left’s view on the matter. They told us we needed Obamacare. They told us we had to pass Obamacare. They ignored Republicans who said it would hurt more than it would help. They ignore Republicans who accurately claimed doctors would leave the system and people would not be able to keep their health insurance.Hell, the President himself went out and told everyone they could keep their doctors, their health insurance, and their preferred hospitals. He lied.Then they told us it was the law of the land. They are still telling us that one.When Republicans tried to block and then repeal Obamacare, we were called hostage takers.Now lefties are calling us saboteurs for merely insisting the Democrats’ preferred healthcare policy solution be implemented as they themselves designed it and passed it over Republican objections.These people are grade school name callers. They got what they wanted. Now they’re mad at those of us who opposed it for insisting they keep it. And the icing on the cake is them now trying to make a rational argument that Republicans ruined their scheme by thinking bad thoughts.Seriously, that’s what it amounts to. Thanks to Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, the GOP has not blocked Obamacare. In fact, the GOP helped fund Obamacare. They did not repeal it or stop the regulatory wheels from rolling on. But somehow Republicans thinking bad thoughts has ruined Obamacare.Somebody call Peter Pan.
