  • As widely reported, Bill Clinton said in a recent interview that the “If you like what you’ve got, you can keep it” promise is one that young people heard clearly, and it’s one President Obama needs to keep — even if it requires a change in the law.

    The AP asked Carney today if the President agrees with Clinton. The answer was emphatically "yes", and Obama has his people scrambling for a fix. Okay, soooo, the outraged Obama agrees with Clinton that this Obama fellow better damn sure keep his promise to the American people! Thank God we have Obama fighting for us!

    Oh, and the solution is going to be......wait for it......drum roll please.......throw more money at it. There will be a subsidy for those who lost their plans, the cost of which will be tossed on top of our great-great grandchildren's debt mountain behind the White House. It's the only option for the leftkooks, not just because they could care less about spending money we don't have. It is because Obamacare's very survival depends on private insurers eventually going away. Even one of the architects of socialized healthcare, Jonathan Gruber, says on Politico that the government can't simply allow people to keep their own plans and not participate in Obamacare, due to the false promises made to the insurers that they would get a certain number of customers. “If you allow the healthy enrollees to stay in their old policy, the insurers lose money and the program falls apart,” writes Gruber.

    In other words, socialism doesn't work unless you drag everyone (except the socialists, of course) down to the same level of mediocrity.

    At least you are up front about your intentions with your alias - you have fulfilled your ridiculously fringe task.

    Oh, and in case you didn't know, the "compromise" passed yesterday only suspends the law establishing the legal debt ceiling, not raising it by a certain amount. In other words, another box of blank checks for Obama - no limit in force. Let's see how much the Loafer in Chief piles onto the debt mountain between now and February 7 when it comes up again for battle.
