“It’s very important to take a long view at what’s going on here. And I’ll be able to dig up some emails that make part of the Affordable Care Act that doesn’t look good, especially from people who have made up their mind that they don’t want it to work. Because they don’t like the president, maybe he’s of the wrong color. Something of that sort.I’ve seen a lot of that and I know a lot of that to be true. It’s not something you’re meant to talk about in public, but it’s something I’m talking about in public because that is very true.”
—- Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-WV), once again playing the race-card (he’s done it before) to impugn the motives of opponents of the Affordable Care Act and other Obama policy initiatives.
How low, lazy, irresponsible, despicable, and cowardly.
You know, if I didn’t want Obamacare to work, I’d make the law inexcusably convoluted and complex. I think I’d also make it dependent on forcing healthy young people to sign up for it rather than paying a cheaper tax, and make sure the President lies about how it will affect Americans who were satisfied with their doctors and health care plans. I’d hand the design of the crucial website off to a company that has already proved itself incompetent, and rush it into operation before it was ready to function properly. I know I’d hold nobody accountable for all the screw-ups, and if I was the one who had my name on it, I’d exercise no oversight or management while the provisions of the endlessly complicated program that I made my top legislative priority were being bungled and botched at all levels. That should do it.
So, based on Sen.Rockefeller’s reasoning, Democrats, the Obama administration and the President himself don’t like the President, and think he’s “of the wrong color.”
There is no false accusation, no dirty tactic, no divisive rhetoric, no insulting rationalization, that these shameless hacks will not stoop to using in order to avoid confronting their own accountability.
