Six months into ObamaCare, and what do we have?
Broken promises, outright lies, and an Epic Fail.
I won't get into the details of the broken promises (see here, and yes, that is a link to the GOP website. Doesn't change the facts of the situation, sorry!)
What is more interesting is the fact that the Democrats are now facing an Epic Fail.
What is an Epic Fail?
From the Urban Dictionary:
A mistake of such monumental proportions that it requires its own term in order to successfully point out the unfathomable shortcomings of an individual or group.
What happens, then, when the President of the United States is responsible for an Epic Fail? When his party actually controlled both houses of Congress and where not a single member of the opposition thought his ideas were good and worth supporting? Where the political necessity of pushing the bill through took priority over giving anyone the time to actually read the bill and understand what was being pushed through Congress?
The Democrats were so convinced of the absolute, complete necessity of passing Health Care Reform (aka ObamaCare for now and forever) that they simply passed a bill that bears the mark of lobbyists and serves the industry, rather than the public. Costs aren't and won't be reduced; ObamaCare is the insurance industry's wet dream of being able to take more and more disposable income, helped along by the trial lawyers and aided by corrupt politicians who take their orders from unions and lobbyists.
Now we have the Epic Fail of the Democratic Party. It is going to be a very, very interesting couple of weeks to watch the moderate Democrats abandon their Great Leader and to watch the left go hysterical about how the mean and nasty Republicans are going to dump babies out into the streets and stomp on them while bayoneting social workers and tossing Grandma out of the airlock (or words to that effect).
This is where the absurdities of the Democratic Party have led us: a party dedicated to statism and fewer freedoms, all in the name of rights and maintaining power; a party incapable of cleansing itself, corrupt to the core and beholden to the rich (Soros) and criminal (unions); a party whose fundamental beliefs require perpetual denial of the laws of economics (and these laws are there: sooner or later you run out of other people's money...) and logic; a party indulgent and wastrel, concerning itself with the trivial, distracted from the greater truths, the lunatics firmly in control of the asylum and almost literally incapable of understanding why anyone could dare think different.
We haven't seen such an Epic Fail since the collapse of the Confederates in the Civil War.
It's gonna be an interesting fall. Pun intended.
