(Guest Post by Matthew Ladner)
If you are in the mood for a quick and handy reminder about why most of the country despises the limousine liberal set, this video should do the trick. The media is paying the most attention to the fact that this guy holds the American public in contempt (the feeling is mutual) but the far bigger story emerges from this video. In it, one of the architects of the President’s signature domestic initiative more or less admits that the “Affordable” part of the “Affordable Care Act” was a deliberate fraud of the “yeah, yeah- we’ll get to that later” sort.
Given that we live in a nation with trillions of dollars in unfunded liabilities related to preexisting entitlement programs and 10,000 new baby-boomers qualifying for these programs a day, this represents recklessness on a stunning scale. William F. Buckley once sagely noted that he would rather be ruled by the first 1,000 people in the Boston phone book than the faculty of Harvard. It’s time to add MIT to the list.
Obamacare supporter Ron Fournier turns in a must-read critique in the National Journal. Money quote:
And so even I have to admit, as a supporter, that Obamacare was built and sold on a foundation of lies. No way around it, unless you’re willing to accept a political system that colors its lies—the reds, the whites, and the blues.
