Wormtongue’s signature “achievement” doesn’t even help the people it was supposed to, the low-income without health insurance. That was just one of his many lies.
And we’re stuck with it. Thanks to the crooked incompetents who are our political elite. Obamacare is a fine example of the continuing decline of the American empire. But what could you expect from the likes of Hillary, Barack, Kerry, Biden, Schumer, Boxer, Waxman, Reid, Pelosi, Kagan, etc.? Not to mention Boehner, McCain, Rubio, and so forth.
And, of course, we get what we deserve: Time was when Obamacare would have sparked a revolution. Now people just yawn and change the channel. It’s hard to get too upset about anything when you have enough to eat, clothes to wear, and air conditioning—and the entertainment choices keep proliferating.
Now I know how my grandfather felt in the 1930s watching the country being dragged down by FDR and his band of Stalin-lovers. A pox on all of them, I say, of both parties, without exception. May they never recover from the guilt and shame of skewering their country in the name of power-lust, expediency and corruption.
