The Republicans' Obamacare lie and why it will continue to help them

By tmcbpatriot 

When I think if the GOP, I often hear the voice of Lieutenant Colonel Bill Kilgore as he sits in the helicopter looking down at the carnage he is dropping onto that Vietnamese village. In a forever frustrated voice, he utters, as only he can: "Don't these people ever give up?"

Well there's that voice again because Paul Ryan is at it again. He is making the rounds in his forever lame attempt to remain relevant while touting yet another budget plan, same as the old plan, that promises to make the world a better place, provided of course that Obamacare is not part of it. Ugh. I feel your frustration, Bill.

Thing is, though, this boring regurgitation of repealing Obamacare, while tired and rote, continues to provide returns for the GOP and will for years to come. Obamacare is much like those other pesky liberal initiatives, like Medicare and civil rights, and much like those we intelligent people understand that Obamacare is here to stay while Republicans need to pretend it's not. Politicians like Ryan need to play dumb in order to maintain support among their fast-dying, brain-dead followers who need to believe otherwise.

For anyone working in health care, you know that Obamacare is moving forward and is already deeply enmeshed in how things will work going forward. Repeal is virtually impossible at this point, and Republicans know it. Nevertheless, they need to continue with the repeal meme in order to give their voting block something to hope for. It is a good plan because Republican voters are that ignorant and refuse to face reality. For the rest of us, we'll just keep dropping liberal bombs on their heads until they finally surrender. Sadly, I don't see it happening anytime soon.

Maybe they should just title this clip, "Here Come The Democrats With Obamacare":
