There is too much “inside baseball” analysis going around, like this piece at the WSJ by James Taranto. It’s simplier than it has been made out to be. The GOP is benefiting from the money flowing in from opposition to Obamacare. They want to keep that money rolling in. They think there may actually be a chance to turn back the tide of Obamacare, but only if they let it fully implement and let the public see just how bad it really is. That will also help the GOP to fill in seats in the House and Senate. In other words, just like the Democrats, the GOP is taking a scorched earth policy.
But the problem is that Obamacare is going full steam ahead. My daughter is in medical care, and the implications of Obamacare are catastrophic and disasterous. I simply do not have the time or space to outline the horror awaiting us, nor would I keep my readers for that long. Ted Cruz knows that, which is why he is trying to turn it back now, even if only in stages. In short, he has a soul. He is more concerned about America than he is his own career.
Yes, I know, I keep making the same point over and over, but it is a good point, and I want to make sure I hammer it home.
The GOP establishment, while it claims to regard Obamacare as a disaster for the American people (and in this they are correct) really see it as a political opportunity. So if a few chickens – or a bunch – have to be slaughtered in order to make that good, good political chicken stew, well, after all, they’re only chickens.
In other words, just like the liberal fascist establishment, the GOP faction of the Ruling Party thinks the rest of us are insignificant, and they know best how to rule us – for our own good.
