The “Consider This!” Podcast, Episode 56: Debt Limit Flip-Flops, and the ObamaCare Math

The latest episode of the “Consider This!” podcast is out. Conservative commentary in 10 minutes or less.

I had a nice conversation with a Twitter follower on the flipping and flopping may Democrats have done on the whole debt limit issue. They were very much against raising it until one of their guys is sitting in the White House. What a difference an administration makes! I was pointed to a quote by Dick Cheney saying that “deficits don’t matter” as an example of Republicans changing course as well. But that quote is categorically different than what Democrats are saying today. (And Cheney is not what anyone would really consider a conservative.) (And at the time he said that, I disagreed with him.)

Dave Ramsey recently did a segment on the math of ObamaCare. Never mind the politics of it all (and he certainly lets both conservatives and liberals have it on spouting talking points rather than “original thought”), the math just doesn’t work out. Math isn’t political; it’s just math. If you respect Dave, you should watch the video. Like my podcast, it’s less than 10 minutes.
