"If you want to test a man's character, give him power." Abraham Lincoln
The message of fiscal conservatives gets so twisted, so distorted, it is hard to comprehend how it happens. I am a very simple, country woman. When someone is lying, I can't even think about anything to say, other than, "that person is lying."
Now, even the mainstream, liberal media is doing some "investigative journalism" and is finding out that (gasp!) people can't keep their health plans like the president has promised, like, a thousand times. They are finding out (shocking!) that people are being thrown off their plans at a higher rate than they can sign up for Obamacare.
I don't really call this investigative journalism, I call this waking up.
Every single thing that conservatives said would happen under Obamacare is happening. Costs are going through the roof for the few who get to keep their plans. Anywhere from 1/2 to 3/4 of people who currently buy individual insurance are losing their plans. Period.
The cost of Obamacare, just administering it and setting it up, has already cost double the amount Obama originally said it would cost. And, remember, all that money has been spent and we don't have one thing to show for it. So far, it has been nothing more than a colossal waste of taxpayer money.
And, something Republicans couldn't even foresee, the unbelievable incompetence of not even being able to get a functionality website. But, that is exactly what Republicans said, the government can't administer something of this size.
Of course, Obama has feigned ignorance, yet again. It is not possible for a president to know absolutely nothing about anything that goes on in his entire administration.
Unless, he is completely incompetent.
And, I think that people (maybe) are starting to realize that. You can't be in charge and not know anything. It was cute for a while, "I learned about that on the news!" For:
The IRS torturing his political opponents,
Fast and Furious,
The NSA spying scandal,
And now the complete and utter failure of his signature legislation.
But, it really isn't cute or funny anymore. The complete incompetence is so clear and plain that even the media who worships him has had to admit it.
Can't we all just admit it now and get our country back?
