Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (RINO-KY) is not on board with defunding Obamacare and he will help Democrats get it all the money it needs. He had a little chat on the Senate floor with fellow Kentucky Senator Rand Paul. McConnell said that the law would fail.
On that he is correct. The law is already failing and it will fail miserably. It has not hit mandated deadlines and parts of it have had to be delayed because those parts are hurting Obama’s friends, Obama does not want the problems before the next election AND they are not ready for implementation.
But McConnell is wrong in drawing the conclusion that because Obamacare will fail it will go away. He stated:
“I think it’s pretty safe to conclude: The things that can’t work don’t stick, don’t last. Because we are, after all, a representative Democracy, the people can complain and discuss and tell us how they feel.” The Hill
Social Security is not working and it has been around for decades. Medicare, same thing. The war on drugs, not working but we continue to spend billions of dollars on that war (while Obama arms drug cartels).
The war on poverty has cost us over 12 TRILLION dollars and it has been a failure. There are more people in poverty now then when the program started and there are more people on welfare. The war to end poverty has created more of it, has added trillions of dollars to our debt and has added millions of people to the welfare rolls.
With all of these negatives one can safely say that the war on poverty failed.
Yet our government continues to redistribute wealth to support the welfare state that resulted from the lost war on poverty.
Government programs do not go away. They cost more than advertised and then when they fail government says there is a problem that needs more money to solve and then throws more money at the problem IT created.
It is a vicious cycle that resembles being caught in a transporter loop.
McConnell can claim that the law has no chance of working and he is correct but to conclude that it will go away flies in the face of history and reality.
The only way to get rid of it is to do so now before millions of people get snared into it and depend on it.
When that happens we will have another failed welfare program that consumes more and more while producing nothing.
Regardless of what happens McConnell and the rest of the RINOs must be removed from office.
I know that the establishment Republicans are counting on winning the Senate in 2014. What happens if they don’t? I would rather never win the Senate if it will be in control of people like McConnell, McCain and Cornyn.
I won’t be voting in 2014 with the goal of gaining back the Senate. I will be working to have people vote these slugs out of office.
Never surrender, never submit.
