We have Obamacare for one reason and one reason only: For a brief, ghoulish period in recent history, Democrats controlled the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives.It goes deeper than this. After revisiting some history of what Democrats do with super majorities against popular support, Coulter goes on to explain that conservatives choosing to battle RINO Republicans over vulnerable Democrats is stupid. She's right. She's also said elsewhere that Republican consultants pick rich candidates who will lose because they will get more money that way than if they back a winning candidate with less personal wealth. Dumb way to choose candidates to back, if you ask me.
We don't have Obamacare because the public was clamoring for it. We have it because Republicans lost elections.
First, Republicans lost their majorities in the House and the Senate in 2006, thanks to George W. Bush's highly effective "Keep the Base at Home on Election Day" campaign, which consisted of pushing amnesty for illegal aliens.
Then in 2008, Republicans had the bright idea to run crazy-eyed crypt-keeper John McCain for president.
If Obamacare had never passed, we wouldn't be subject to the pain of another incompetent takeover from a private sector industry. Unlike government, the private sector has to make things efficient and effective to stay afloat. They don't have the taxpayer money to flush down the drain that the government seems to feel entitled to. Case in point: CBS: ObamaCare Launched After Failing . of Tests
Update: another telling headline.
