One Party’s Pride,  Another Party’s Glee

Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before the fall.

 Bible Proverb

ObamaCare's authors are being mugged by reality in real time, before our eyes.  

Holman W. Jenkins, Jr., "ObamaCare Is Redistribution, Not Reform," Wall Street Journal, January 4-5, 2013


Doctor Jim McDermott, a psychiatrist and a notable Democrat.
A tried and true Washington State Congressional  technocrat,

Says his party will be “proud “ to run on ObamaCare.
in the upcoming November midterm election affair.

Nancy Pelosi says her party should “stand tall” for reform,
And by doing so will take the House and Senate  by storm.

They must be in denial if they see ObamaCare as lemonade not as a  lemon,
As giving people health care for free, as sweet manna from political heaven.


Meanwhile the Republicans are rubbing their hands in glee.
at negative polls  for ObamaCare as far as the eye can see.

They foresee people when left to their own personal devices,
as unwilling to prop up others at the cost of personal sacrifices,

Such as paying “sticker shock” health plan prices and deductibles,
At  previously unheard of  and at totally unaffordable  multiples.

They foresee every mandate  of ObamaCare being  postponed and delayed,
They foresee the individual mandate for them as a political hand grenade.

Tweet:  Some  Democrats in denial see ObamaCare as a political plus,   Republicans see it as a golden opportunity to win House and Senate.
