Obama’s Perfect Crisis
Obama loves all his different crises that distract everyone from his constant power grab.
Check it out:
One thing about Democrat politicians – they stick to their leadership’s talking points. And these days, the party script says Republicans have been busy manufacturing crisis after crisis to move forward their radical agenda, like shutting down the government and denying poor people health care.
The irony is total.
After all, in the great “shutdown showdown” crisis of late 2013, congressional Republicans proposed funding everything in the entire federal government – everything, that is, except the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare. As a desperate stopgap, the GOP was even willing to settle for just delaying Obamacare’s individual mandate for a year.
No deal, replied Obama and the Democrats. Give us a “clean CR” (continuing resolution) – meaning, no negotiating with Republicans on any front. Give us everything we want, authorize funding for the entire government, including Obamacare, or we shut it down – and our allies in the media will blame you.
And so, the Democrats got their way and Obamacare was launched, leading directly to the largest manufactured crisis in modern American history, with millions of people – up to 100 million in 2014, astonished experts warn – losing their health insurance after being endlessly promised otherwise.
