Resistance to Obama Has Melted Away
Look, folks, I really don’t like being a “see, I told you so.” I mean, I know I do it a lot ’cause it happens a lot, and I used to even have a little jingle with it. “Nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah! See, I Told You So,” because it used to be somewhat unique. Now it’s not difficult at all. It is important, however. I do, when relevant, like to remind you of things that you’ve heard in the past on this program that you may have forgotten, things that I’ve said. Here’s a story that leads into my point.
Washington Examiner, here’s the headline: “Kasich’s Cave on Obamacare Shows How Hard it is to Beat Big Government — Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who campaigned as a limited-government Republican,” and he used to be a big-time limited-government Republican when he was a member of the 1994 House freshman class. He presided over the budget committee that actually did balance the budget one time. Kasich has walked the walk as well as talked the talk. But here now is this story:
“Ohio Gov. John Kasich … on Monday announced that he would implement one of the costliest provisions of President Obama’s health care law by expanding the state’s Medicaid program. His decision, a huge victory for the White House that will provide cover for more Republican governors to do the same, serves as a great case study on how difficult it is to impede the growth of government. When Obamacare was making its way through Congress in 2009 and 2010, the proposed expansion of Medicaid was one of its most controversial elements.
