Henry Ward Beecher said: “The real man is one who always finds excuses for others, but never excuses himself.” Human beings are masters of making excuses. Right from childhood, we learn that an excuse can get us out of trouble; it can save us from punishment. When that begins to fail, we develop more complex excuses; excuses designed to better manipulate. Those are the excuses that adults use to put a spin on their failures. The most expert excuse makers are in Washington. They spend their whole careers developing the skill to deflect blame, so that they can come out sparkling. The strange thing is, even though we can see through the BS, they usually get away with it; because the American people are often t0o lazy or dim-witted to call politicians on their behavior. Once again, the Democrats are trying to spin spin spin.
As we all knew right from the beginning, Obamacare is going to be an abject failure, and a total disaster. All we had to do is look to Europe and Greece to see our future, yet when we looked it straight in the face, our course remained unchanged.
According to Investors Business Daily:
“As Democrats grow increasingly worried that Obamacare will explode on the launch pad just as midterm elections get going, the Obama administration seeks to pin blame on Republicans…Earlier this week, Health and Human Services head Kathleen Sebelius admitted that she didn’t realize how complicated getting Obamacare off the ground would be…Sebelius complained that ‘no one fully anticipated’ the difficulties involved in implementing Obamacare, or how confusing it would be with the public…Rather than say ‘let’s get on board, let’s make this work,’ recalcitrant Republicans have forced her to engage in ‘state-by-state political battles,’ Sebelius said at a Harvard School of Public Health forum. ‘The politics has been relentless.'”
Ok, let me get this straight:
1. Sebelius didn’t realize how difficult it would be to get a 2000 page monstrosity to function properly? She’s either a fool, or a liar.
2. No one fully anticipated the details? Are you kidding me?! Everyone without a D next to their name anticipated the details, and strongly pushed against it.
3. Once again, the Liberals and their favorite word: “recalcitrant.” So, what we have here is a Liberal–whose ideas are failing miserably–trying to deflect blame on her enemies. She is using the fact that Conservatives are fighting this massively unpopular bill as an excuse to explain why they can’t understand and implement the bill properly. It’s as if she doesn’t understand how politics work. Wait–I have a better explanation: Obamacare is a monster; it is an absolute failure, and Sebelius and Obama need scapegoats. Yup, that’s the one.
Obamacare isn’t even fully implemented, and premiums are already on the rise. As I’ve said numerous times, there are vastly simpler ways to gain control of the cost of healthcare in a responsible way; so that more people could have quality, affordable care. But that is not what this is about. Obamacare has never been about helping people; it is about power, and control. Simple as that.
Now that mid-term elections are coming up, Democrats are scrambling to place blame so they can keep their seats. Unfortunately, many Americans are not smart enough, or just don’t care enough to see through the crap constantly being thrown at them. A real person would own up to their mistakes, but politicians are not real people. Politicians are animals that survive solely on deception and power. Obamacare is their biggest power play yet.
