“Boehner: Obamacare ‘Law of the Land’”
There’s that fighting spirit! Nobody — and I mean nobody — is more ferocious at preemptive surrender than is John Boehner. Like a big orange tiger bounding out of a tree with a white flag in its razor sharp claws. Terrifying!
In an exclusive interview with ABC News today, House Speaker John Boehner said there would be no more attempts to repeal Obamacare. “Obamacare is the law of the land,” he said. “The election changed” the situation, said Boehner.
While some conservatives will no doubt see this as Boehner caving, it is also a testament to political realities: the Senate is Democrat, and so is the president. The chances of a repeal are zero. Nonetheless, Boehner’s remarks underscore the effect of this election in enshrining Obamacare into the American way of life.
Wait, this isn’t Boehner caving? His constituency wants ObamaCare repealed. He should continue to push for repeal.
But hey, if you can’t win, why fight, right? May as well make it easy on Obama and the Dems and hope to get some of that revenue stream for yourselves. And besides: it ain’t like the Democrats will always control the WH and the Senate. One day, the GOP will get its turn to act as wealthy custodians of a The Bureaucratized States of America. And that makes their mouths water. Because as I keep saying, there’s really not much difference between the establishment GOP and the Democrats.
In fact, if I can be honest here, I think the GOP establishment wanted precisely this all along. Which is why measures were never taken to cut funding for implementation, and why anything other than symbolic votes never materialized.
You are now subjects. And that works for the permanent ruling class, regardless of party.
