Harry Reid insists, “ObamaCare has been wonderful for America.”
Now of course we don’t take anything Harry Reid says seriously, but it still says something about the reality-challenged nature of Washington that the Senate Majority Leader can spew such nonsense with impunity.
Not that Harry Reid cares if what he says is accurate, but if he ever started wondering about the accuracy of what he says, he might want to check with his fellow Democrats across the country. A new poll from Fox News shows that 66 percent of all Americans are more worried than reassured as a result of the law, and even 46 percent of Democrats feel that way.
Even union leaders are now upset because they’ve realized that ObamaCare will force them to give up the insurance they had. Some of those who got on board with government health care because they are part of the left-wing coalition, and this is what left-wingers have always wanted, are now experiencing sticker shock.
In the midst of all this, it mystifies me that congressional Republicans still can’t agree on how to approach the battle to get rid of ObamaCare. We hear that they can’t agree on what to do instead, but there’s an excellent alternative – H.R. 2300 sponsored by Rep. Tom Price – that would allow them to not only repeal ObamaCare but replace it with something much better for the nation, as we discussed last week.
Republicans need to stop fighting amongst themselves, get behind Price’s bill and turn their focus to defeating ObamaCare. Americans have already recognized that Harry Reid is full of it, and that ObamaCare is the farthest thing from “wonderful for America.” The Republicans just might find that if they serve the people by replacing this monstrosity with something better, they’ll be glad they did.
