Your ObamaCare Fail of the Day

December 30th, 2013 - 11:23 am

Oy:

The lower-than-hoped-for enrollment numbers on the federal exchanges are due to Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare, Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton (D., D.C.) argued on Monday. Norton blamed a “negative propaganda campaign” by Republicans that confused Americans into thinking that the law was no longer in effect.

“There are millions of people out there who think it was repealed, so there was no way to break through that very easily,” she told MSNBC. Norton also pointed out that the “debacle of a website” made matters worse because it “seemed to confirm that [the law] must have been repealed, or should have been repealed.”

In a sense, Norton is right. ObamaCare was never repealed, but it’s fair to say that its enactment has been somewhat… selective. It exists in a sort of lawless limbo where the Administration decides by whim or fiat which parts of the law to enforce and when.

So if Americans think the law has been repealed, well, they aren’t entirely wrong. The fact that we have the Executive branch acting in such an imperial manner would have had our Founders reaching for their muskets. It’s no exaggeration to say that, because King George tried to get away with less than this Administration has asserted are its rights and powers.

Or as Norton herself put it, “When that fine is going to kick in, you’re going to see people trotting to sign on like you’ve never seen it before.”

Cattle, meet prod.

“When that fine is going to kick in, you’re going to see people trotting to sign on like you’ve never seen it before.”

Or, They'll continue to not sign, forfeit whatever meager return, and then shriek for the blood of idiots like Norton.

The smarter ones will have already adjusted withholding to a minimum.

On some level, I wonder if they are really just that thick.

Clearly, she didn't read the legislation, and cannot observe a flaming train wreck in front of her eyes. Or, she knows what it's all about and is telling the company lie deliberately.

So just like with Prof. Wiggleroom, she either is a blithering idiot and incompetent, or is lying. Neither of which is a good thing.

Actually, I'll answer myself - They're all blithering, incompetent, lying idiots.

Meh, this is just liberal buzzwords to try to change the subject and foist it onto the GOP because the "GOP is always eeeeevil." It's the absence of an argument, and she wants the GOP to respond to her barbs in order to give it credence.

Just tell her "I'd like to see you back that up with facts, rather than just conjecture." and watch her run away from her own argument.

maybe. or you might see people underpaying their taxes as, currently, tax refunds are the only seizable assets. or maybe you will see republicans elected.
