I have often described the liberals' tactics as S.I.N. When they can't justify what they want to do with logic or facts, which is basically always, they shift the subject, ignore the facts, and name call.
Well, our cup of liberal S.I.N. has runneth over lately amid the Obamacare implementation debate. Three years after passage of Obamacare, with the impending formal rollout of a key feature of the legislation — the Healthcare Exchanges — liberals are still in straight-face denial of the facts that have unfolded, and they have resorted to some of the most vicious name-calling in recent times.
The overwhelming amount of evidence about Obamacare suggests that it is not ready for rollout and implementation, and that some of the underlying assumptions will produce unintended (yeah, right) and unsustainable consequences. But the liberals don't care. They are singularly focused on government control of healthcare, and not the healthcare of the people.
If they did care, they would heed the voices of the many people who have already received notices from their insurance companies indicating large increases in their premiums for the same coverage. If they did care, they would heed the voices of those who cannot keep their insurance or their doctor as promised by President Obama. But they don't care.
If the do-gooders did care they would listen to the people on Medicare who are now finding out that certain medications and procedures are being denied because of their age, or because of changes in Medicare coverage that most people don't even know about.
If they did care, they would heed the voices of the thousands of doctors who are no longer accepting new Medicare patients because they cannot afford to do so, or are phasing out some of the Medicare patients they already have. The do-gooders are not listening, because the truth might get in the way of their mission.
And let's not forget the many exceptions and delays the administration has tried to keep quiet about. The employer mandate has been delayed a year because the systems to determine if employers are complying with the new law are not ready. Yet the administration, so far, has not agreed to delay the individual mandate. Some of the healthcare exchanges are not ready for business, including the one for Washington, D.C.
These continuing revelations about the negative impact on the economy, businesses, families, and individuals do not matter to liberals and the Democrats in Congress. Their goal is simply government control of our healthcare and cost system, while they continue to pretend to be healthcare do-gooders.
Obamacare do-gooders do not care about the facts. And of course, there are plenty of things to shift the media narrative to such as Syria, Iran, the national debt, the debt ceiling, gun control, and global warming.
And, the name-calling has reached a new low. Anarchists by Harry Reid. Legislative arsonists by Nancy Pelosi. And extortionists by the president himself. These are just a few of the choice descriptions they have used. One senator called Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas a fraud for his filibuster to speak on behalf of the people.
The liberals' S.I.N. tactics will continue, because that's all they have as they try to continue deceiving a partially gullible public. And for those Democrats who continue to be in denial about Obamacare, maybe some of them will wake up when they experience "Obama-shock" for themselves.
Then again, many of them will not wake up to the facts and the name-calling, because they don't care either.
