It is axiomatic that when one’s enemy is in the midst of destroying themselves, one gets out of the way. But strangely, enough this isn’t entirely the case with recent events. This morning there were the perfunctory number of news items from the National Socialist Media issuing the usual histrionics over the AHCA:
It is always expected that the “Objective” Journalists of the National Socialist Media will take every opportunity to push their usual propaganda about their political enemies. This would have been the reaction no matter the actions of the GOP or the Trump administration. Parenthetically, they could have re-branded the disaster know as Obamacare and they still would have… Wait a minute.. that’s what the GOP did anyway.. never mind..
One can easily surmise that after the Left had discerned the particulars of Obamacare 2.0 they would rubbed their collective hands together with glee and broken out the champagne usually reserved for news report of mass shootings. And it could easily be assumed that the nation’s Socialist Left is merely engaging in a bit of reverse psychology at the moment. Loudly complain about something they are secretly jumping for joy as a way of ‘supporting’ the Republican’s In Name Only cabal with what is normally expected of them.
So while it is difficult to guess the rationale for the Left’s actions as of late, it still should be extremely useful to examine the repercussions of failing to rewrite the bill and pushing through Obamacare 2.0 by the former GOP.
1. “Read my lips: No new taxes” soon to be “Read my lips: No Obamacare repeal”
Remember the firestorm that resulted from George H.W. Bush having to raise taxes after he made the pledge: “Read my lips: No new taxes”? Multiple that by several orders of magnitude for every candidate who pledge to repeal Obamacare over the past few years.
This will be a primary issue for every one of those candidates and an issue raised by the Democrats with regard to trustworthiness.
2. When Obamacare collapses it will the fault of the GOP.
The GOP has set itself in a perfect storm of incompetence. They will be to blame when Obamacare implodes since they are proudly placing their imprimatur on the plan. And if by some miracle it stays solvent the Left would take credit for the system. Either way the GOP loses, perfect planning.. to help the other side…
3. Moving Left is a bad move while the rest of the world is moving Right.
These days the Socialist – Left is in dire straits, aside from the Obama cult victories they’ve been on a losing for years. Their life-support dominating the media, culture and government indoctrination centers is the only thing keeping them away from total collapse. And yet the GOP is throwing them a lifeline with this legislative muck up.
4. Obamacare 2.0 will be the end of the GOP.
Many stated this was the case with the ascension of Trump, and his winning the White House forestalled this thinking for a time. But if the GOP fails to go back to the drawing board with AHCA abomination there will be no saving the GOP. Thus we circle back to the original question: Why would the national Socialist Left want to interrupt the GOP destroying itself?
Maybe we should see this as a means to a new party that will be reborn out of the ashes of the GOP and that is why the Left is against this legislation. Perhaps a new party without the GOP baggage would serve to finally send the left’s base ideology to the dustbin of history.
