Special Interest Politics v. Reality

If the Supreme Court strikes down Obamacare, I would like one card-carrying member of the left -- just one -- to admit that this is about the Constitutionality of the law; not health care.

After admitting that, I would then like that one honest member of the left to admit that the Obama administration royally fucked up by forcing through a health care bill that was unlawful; and instead of advancing the cause of health coverage for all, the Obama administration set this cause back by decades because they fucked up.

This is no longer about idealism, this is about reality. The time for cheerleaders, pom-poms, rah-rahs and sis-boom-fucking-bahs is over. We may vote for a politician, and we may generally like a politician, but if they royally fuck up then it's about time we hold them accountable.

Just saying.

This was about crony capitalism. President Obama promised the drug companies that he would veto any bill that allowed Medicare to negoiate for cheaper prices. The insurance companies donated to Obama's 2008 campaign because they knew the mandate would deliver millions of new customers. The President fucked-up because he used the Republican health care plan created by the Heritage Foundation and Mitt Romney. Does anyone seriously believe that Romney and the Heritage Foundation was interested in covering the poor?
