President Obama and the Democrats in Congress succeeded in pushing their failed Health Care bill through Congress. However, the President nor the Democrats won and all Americans have lost. The lack of transparency and the deals that had to be cut to push this bill forward will eventually come to light and shine a light on just how corrupt the Democrats have been during the debate or lack thereof during this process.
The Louisiana Purchase, the Cornhusker Kickback, and all the other Connecticut special deals are still in the bill. The Washington insiders have gained in the short term while the American public will have to pay for these deals. Everyone knows this was a bad bill. The problem is Obama used up his political capital in getting this debacle to the finish line and couldn't even think of trying it again. Bart Stupak sold his soul and his constituents for the sake of his party. The individual mandates remained and the dishonest politicians will try hiding from their contentious vote. The only people that will tout this bill will be Obama, Reid, Pelosi, and the water carrying media. Watch for the next week all we will hear from the propaganda media elites is how great Pelosi was at bringing and holding her caucus in line. They will explain how Obama sold the public with his last minute appeals. The media will begin selling this bill as the greatest thing since sliced bread.
We will be left holding the bill. Once the benefits kick in for this bill tax revenues will decline and benefits that were promised will disappear into thin air because we won't be able to pay for it. The media will portray this as a historic vote. They will of course be right but for the wrong reasons. The media will push the meme of how great this is for America and how awesome the President is at making this become reality. That of course isn't the historic event. The historic event is that the Democrats sold out America along partisan lines. Please Mr. President explain how you are not going to be a lame duck starting now? The Presidents days are now numbered. There is no way he will be able to overcome the partisan divide. The Democrats have officially lost the country.
