Today marks two years since Obama signed the ironically-titled “Affordable Care Act,” the law that was born breach and without an epidural for its host — American taxpayers present and future. Joe Biden called it a “big f-in deal,” and he was correct — 60% of doctors believe the law will have a negative impact on patient care. But what do they know? They’re only doctors — not career politicians with law degrees.

Yesterday, Nancy Pelosi said the law “honors the vows of the Founders.” Unless the Founders made a vow to f*#k the country, she’s wrong. Pelosi then went on to argue for the constitutionality of the law by quoting from the Declaration of Independence. Go figure. Stretch also said that Obamacare will aide Americans in their “pursuit of happiness,” a quest that only another government mandate can help fulfill. I mean, what better way for the government to facilitate happiness than by fining people who are, by Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi’s definition, unhappy? Sometimes people just need that extra push toward happiness, and if they’re flat broke by the time they get there, so be it.

Fear not, America, because fortunately the law is going to be administered by crack public officials like Kathleen Sebelius. I for one am comforted by her lack of competence — yeah, it’s annoying, but at least it’s preferable to scam artists who actually know what they’re doing.

As of a few days ago, 56% of Americans favored repeal of the law, and that’s with all the “goodies” (consumer protections that were supposed to be “popular”) front-loaded, and the expenses back-burnered. What we’re seeing now is the good stuff, and the majority of people still hate it. Hang on, because it only gets worse.

Will Obamacare live to see a third birthday? The Supreme Court will decide soon.


Update: Romney: Why I’d Repeal Obamacare

I don’t fully understand his argument: Instead of Obamacare, Mitt’s saying we need a free-market, federalist approach to health care… like individual states issuing the mandates instead of the federal government?

    Crappy Birthday – uhhhhh here take a pill for that. If it turns out the crappiness is a life threatening disease – too bad for you. Go home and die so we can spend taxpayer dollars on the illegal immigrant next in line with a "painful" hang nail.

    Stretch also said that Obamacare will aide Americans in their “pursuit of happiness,”

    What a ridiculous statement! On so many levels.

    So now the wicked witch of the west gets to decide what my happiness is and mandate it for me. How about if I decide that the Chevy Volt would be happiness for you and now you must drive one. Enjoy!

    Can you imagine a BHO, III ? A whiny blamer in hoodie and mom-jeans !

    ObamaScare ……. all this debt, disruption and destruction of the American Way, for 15% of the population; the original target of 47 million people !?

    It seems to me, more affordable insurance rates through tort reform would have accomplished that !

    It would never fly. Democrats are allergic to policies that actually work.

  8. SignPainterGuy on March 23rd, 2012 7:26 pm

    And also allergic to placing people in powerful positions with actual knowledge and experience at those posts ! Best I can tell, not one single person he has appointed to a post is qualified for that post !

    Dick Cheney just got a new heart at 71, after five heart surgery's…

    BUT…under Obamacare he would have been sent home to die.

    Uh…wait..he gets a waiver.because he's a politician and exempt from the laws of the lower monkeys. .

    .It's hard to believe that Nancy has the gall to tell us our "pursuit of happiness" starts with THEIR glee in telling us all what to do.
