It would appear that the politicians both democrats and republicans are taking and have been taking turns stabbing the middle-class in the back. Both political parties are filled to over-flowing with big-government politicians, Whigs and Socialists. On one hand we have the democrats(Socialists)taking this Republic down the path to socialism, on the other we have the republicans(Whigs)taking us down the same path. If they get their way this republic will be inhabited by the same classes as Venezuela, the poor and the wealthy. The middle class will be eliminated here just the same as there. Of the two the democrats seem to be in the biggest hurry, the republicans seem to be a bit more patient.
There is another thing about the democrats, they are willing to risk losing elections on the way to Socialism. The democrats knew full-well that Obamacare would at some point implode, fail if you will. Still they did not care and moved ahead full-speed. They also knew that by passing Obamacare they would lose elections, the voters would take out their anger at the polls. Losing elections did not bother them. They lost control of the House shortly after passing Obamacare, retaining the Senate and the Presidency. Later they lost control of the Senate but retained the Presidency. For democrats losing was winning.
Now the republicans control the House, the Senate and the Presidency. Six months in and Obamacare is still with us. The republicans can not get rid of Obamacare, nor do they really want to. The democrats are coming to the rescue, they seek a bi-partisan effort to fix Obamacare. They knew it would fail. They sought no republican input is “crafting” that piece of legislation, yet they are willing to help the republicans to “fix” Obamacare. The thing about republicans is that they are not willing to lose elections on their march towards Socialism.
There is no way that we can ever go back to the way it was, or the way it is supposed to be. Big government politicians will see to that. Healthcare is just another thing under federal government control, one of many. Government has control and will never give that up. Power and control.
What will the republicans run on next year? Can or will they run on their record? Will they say they just needed more time? Maybe they will say the time to repeal Obamacare was lost, it has been with us to long? Will they say that too much time was lost investigating “Russian collusion”? The republicans have total control at this time, they could repeal Obamacare. If only they had the Nerve, had a Brain and had a Heart. They would never do that they might lose the next election.
What will the democrats run on next year? Will they run on saving Obamacare?
The democrats stabbed us in the back by passing Obamacare.
The republicans stabbed us in the back by failing once again to full-fill campaign promises. Which goes to prove that a politician will say anything to get elected or re-elected.
The democrats will in all likelihood use their time-tested tactics, the republicans will aid them(wittingly or unwittingly). The republicans will fail to repeal Obamacare. Obamacare will fail(implode), after all it was designed to do just that. The democrats will say that they were voted out before they could perfect Obamacare, what they had accomplished was only a first step. A first step that did not go far enough. The republicans had years to fix Obamacare, they could have helped us fix the flaws. The republicans knew the flaws, they repeated/regurgitated them often enough. The republicans refused to help fix it and now it has failed. The republicans did nothing, it failed and its failure is their fault. Now it is too late to fix it, we must take the next step. The next logical step in the minds of big government politicians is single payer health care. They will find a way to blame Obamacare on the republicans. They will even blame single payer on the republicans, had the republicans acted in time we would not be at this point. Even though single payer was their goal all along. The republicans in Congress will face and feel the wrath of the voters, the republicans will find themselves in the political wilderness.
There is another thing about socialism, there is only one political party. The republicans fear that the democrats will be in control when the change occurs. The republicans who stand up against the democrats of today will have no political future tomorrow. The republicans who side with the democrats today may have a political future tomorrow.
