Never let a crisis go to waste.
Please, GOP. Give us something. Just a bone. First Health and Human Services creates a website that might as well have been designed by the Bulgarian Communist Party. Then the President gives a clunker of a speech using the three people the White House managed to find who made it all the way through Healthcare.gov. Fellas, this is what we call a goldmine, and you’re wasting it.
If Obama trots out three people who have signed up for ObamaCare, fill a damn stadium full of people who lost their insurance plans because of ObamaCare. Insurance that they are required under the law to have, which they lost because of the law that requires them to have health insurance. Pull an Obama and make it about fairness.
Look, we can’t win this thing in Congress, so it’s going to come down to public opinion. ObamaCare’s failures and broken promises need to be ruthlessly mocked, and the GOP needs to parade around the victims of this ill-conceived, overpriced failure until it’s impossible for even the mainstream media to ignore.
Republicans, unleash your inner Harry Reid. Sure, he’s a rotten person, and he’s probably senile and incontinent, but he’s the kind of thug that knows how to get things done.
A man can dream, right?
