The first black president, along with the ersatz first black president, honored the first Catholic president on the 50th anniversary of his assassination.
President Clinton, earlier in the week, honored President Obama by telling him to stop lying about ObamaCare.
Red State Democrats ran away.
It turns out ObamaCare really is a train wreck.
Republicans tried to delay it and were denied. Then they tried to defund it and the result was a government shutdown.
Even though it was far from their goal, had the Republicans succeeded, they would have saved the president’s signature program a lot of embarrassment.
Orwellian White House
Instead, the White House called the Tea Party’s efforts to stop the train wreck “terrorism“.
The same administration, four years ago, labeled the killing of 13 troops at Fort Hood in the name of Islam, “workplace violence“.
Republican efforts to stave off ObamaCare may have been unnecessary. The government’s own website seems to be doing a pretty good job of that. People can’t get on the poorly designed site and if they do they can’t get out.
So, as it stands now you can be fined for failing to buy a product the government can’t provide.
The president compared ObamaCare’s rocky rollout favorably to Apple’s launch of iOS 7.0.2. Really. Well, they both do take fingerprints, operate in a cloud, and spy on us.
“Consider that just a couple of weeks ago, Apple rolled out a new mobile operating system, and within days, they found a glitch, so they fixed it.”
A bug that allowed unauthorized users to get past the new iPhone’s fingerprint protected lock screen was fixed. President Obama promises the federal government, proven so nimble in the past, will do likewise.
Apple and ObamaCare the Same
Kathleen Sebelius got into the act saying, “…hopefully you’ll give us the same slack you give Apple”.
Unions have found that ObamaCare will cost them money and possibly membership.
Charles Lane, in the Washington Post, points out that unions negotiate “Cadillac” health coverage as a primary service to their members. Under the Affordable Care Act those plans get hit with a 40% excise tax.
So, while Big Business gets waived from the “employer mandate”, Big Labor gets nothing.
Unions Left Out
Don’t know why the Republicans haven’t jumped on this, but they should at least be pleased to learn that Obama’s not a socialist.
