With Friends Like This, Who Needs, Enemas, Obamacare/Joe Manchin Edition

by Jerry Bader

"It's so much more expensive than we anticipated."  Speak for yourself Joe, some of us knew exactly how expensive it was going to be. Which begs the question; if conservatives understood the economics of Obamacare should we take democrats at their word when they claim they didn't? To plead ignorance on the very intended consequences is to claim one of two things: you were too clueless to know what conservatives knew or your lying. Which is worse?

As someone who, for a year now, has been urging conservatives to allow Obamacare to collapse under its own weight, I have to admit its redeeming to hear a democratic senator say Obamacare may very well collapse under its own weight.
