As one commenter noted, benefits to the poor will start rolling in about 2013, so even if the president fails to win a re-election bid, not only will the GOP need to pick up nineteen Senate seats in three years, but they will have to explain why benefits promised are suddenly being pulled back.
Setting themselves up for battle, the Republicans have now lost three big contests in less than four years: control of the Congress, control of the presidential seat, and control over insurance reform. Rather than learn the lessons of defeat, and commit to a serious introspection and rebuilding, they choose to simply repeat the old mantras, only louder and with less intelligence.
There is literally no hope for health insurance reform to be withdrawn in less than three years. And after that, it will be more difficult politically to make it happen. I sure hope political pro-lifers aren’t drinking the kool-aid on this one.
I’ve made the case elsewhere that by falsely painting Mr Obama as “the worst anti-life president ever,” they clearly have no memory to the 90’s or the 70’s. They sure can’t remember their own proposal for insurance reform. Another big empty fuss is over teabags. Example:
Clearly, not everybody is working from the same memo.
