Now I know how General George Armstrong Custer felt. As you and sit here and wait for our Republican heroes in Congress to ride in and defund the evil and wicked Affordable Healthcare Plan--but somehow we know that It’s not going to happen. Not with this bunch.
Obama and his minions have rolled out “The Great Syrian Distraction”, followed by the U.S. Navy yard massacre. And with a third of September left to go before Obamacare is fully inserted into our various body cavities, I’m sure we’ll see some new crisis present itself.
Never in the history of this once great country have so many elected officials, news media and so-called “celebrities” gone to such great lengths to attempt to tell the general public that the crap sandwich that is Obamacare is going to be really good for us. Hell, Nancy Pelosi was right when she said we would have to pass the bill to see what was in it. Except now, some three plus years down the road, we not only DON’T’ KNOW what’s in it, we’ve yet to be shown anything that indicates the country will be better for having passed it.
And having said that, the President continues to prattle on:
“The problem we have is that over the last four years billions of dollars have been spent misinforming people about what this law is about. All of the horror stories that were talked about have not come true. It is going to be a good deal and we expect that once it is fully implemented -- a year from now, two years from now, five years from now -- people will look back and, they'll be asking what was the argument about. Why is everybody fighting this so much?”
That question could be easily answered but it’s a cinch that Mr. Obama wouldn’t listen to or believe the truth if it backed over him in traffic. He’s oblivious to reality and has proven that time and again over the past five years.
Ask yourself this question: when’s the last time the government spent a ton of money on an ad campaign to promote an existing law? Can you say never? Well get ready for this one sequester-breath, the advertising campaign in question ain’t cheap: The total amount to be spent nationally on publicity, marketing and advertising will be at least $684 million, according to data compiled by the Associated Press from federal and state sources.
And those funds are to tell us that “all will be well once the plan is fully implemented” and that the south side of a north bound horse isn’t its butt.
And speaking of horses, I see a cloud of dust on the horizon. Could it be the cavalry riding in to save the day? No, it’s a government vehicle containing the likes of Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Eric Cantor and Lindsay Graham coming home from a tough day of shoe shopping.
Darn, a fellow just can’t find a nice pair of sling backs in a size twelve anymore……..
