Also, the failure of Obamacare would do a lot to expose the false promises of big government programs. President Obama has been and always will be an unapologetic promoter of classic liberal activism. Liberals think that Washington knows best and that increasing citizens’ dependency on government is a goal in and of itself. Like all Republicans, I believe we need smaller government. Obamacare is the opposite of a smaller, less obtrusive government.
The failure of Obamacare would discourage and hopefully deter those who think a bigger, more domineering U.S. government is the answer to our problems. And most important, the horrors of this debacle and the collapse of Obamacare would have a chilling effect on politicians who want to promote big government solutions.
So join me in crossing your fingers, lighting a candle, chanting, meditating, fasting or whatever and hoping for the failure of Obamacare.
