Conservatives knew Obamacare was a massive federal power grab.  We knew it would be a disaster, but I don’t think anyone had any idea that it would be this much of an epic fail.  After all, this is Obama. The media savant who apparently can’t build a functioning website.  Nevertheless, Obamacare’s butcher’s bill has been growing; millions have lost their insurance; and the amount of people enrolling in the program has yet to break single digits in some states.  What does President Obama have to say for all the pain and suffering he’s inflicted on the country through his new health care law: I’m sorry.

At this point, no matter what happens to Obamacare, it appears likely that it will prove immensely costly, and damaging to both the national economy and medical care in this country.

Obama has claimed the ACA as his legacy and we should now make certain the blame is laid at his feet, along with those of the politicians who made it possible for this travesty to be visited on the American people.

"What does President Obama have to say for all the pain and suffering he’s inflicted on the country through his new health care law: I’m sorry." At least he didn't give us the casual "my bad" that seems to be sufficient for pretty much any transgression the past few years.

Many Americans will wake up to realize that this president does not care a whit about what they are going through, and may even come to see that more than likely it has been willful and purposeful. This is Marxism at its best and most Americans do not have a clue what Marxism is. They seem to be coming to grips with Marxism and Obama simultaneously. Go Figure.

Indeed.

"The president knew it was false and intended to express the falsehood — and we know that. The trick is to pretend that we don’t know that because to admit the fact would be to accept his contempt for us, to see the Boot in our face. Since Obamacare is a steganograph those in the “know” understand perfectly what it means ... Liberalism is the steganograph of the Left. It’s the pattern that conceals the underlying pattern. But Horowitz may be too late to warn us of its dangers. The real significance of Barack Obama’s 2+2=5 healthcare declaration is that he now feels safe to brazenly utter it; emboldened to the point where he doesn’t care who knows. Because perhaps the serried ranks of those leftist faithful who ‘never existed’ can now impose his will by sheer main force; through direct coercion."
