Cough cough

Who knows what to make of this reported shift in the GOP position on health care? I do.

Remember, or let me remind you what I said some time ago about this: “Romney will not repeal Obamacare on Day One, or on Day Any.” That might be an exact quote. or not, but seeing as it’s MY quote, I can change it around any way I like. It’s a good quote, one that would have spread from this Blog around the whole Blogosphere, and Beyond, if anyone (other than you, of course) actually read this blog. Wisdom is more precious shared between just the two of us.

Anyway, my contention was and is that the GOP will not repeal Obamacare, even though it is The Most Evil Law In History. At least they won’t repeal the popular parts of it, because they are...drum roll... popular. Which parts are those? All of them. Except one. What they want to repeal is the UNpopular part, that is, the Paying For It part. Remember, the deficit is only a problem when Democrats occupy the White House. This is where we have been, are now, and will be, if not forever, for a little while longer.
