this week democrat governor phil bredesen of tennessee came out with a book that blasts obamacare as a "stunning disappointment"
Dem Governor: Obamacare a ‘Stunning Disappointment’ - By Daniel Foster - The Corner - National Review Online“The problem was expanding coverage is about all we did.”
It’s “about all we did,” because Bredesen thinks that expanded entitlement saddles an already burdened federal government drowning in red ink with additional – and expensive – obligations.
“Government loves complexity, rules and red tape, but we may have outdone ourselves this time,” Bredesen writes. “Reform offered a chance to clean up the baroque system we have created over the years, reduce bureaucracy, lower administrative cost and give clarity and focus to a major part of where we spend our taxpayers’ money.
“Instead, we created more complexity, more regulations and the need for more bureaucracy.”
we've known for a year and a half that the gubs of almost all our states have objected vociferously to the obamacare expanion of medicaid by some 12 million with NO FEDERAL FUNDING
the states are already bankrupt and THIS is how obnoxious obama reaches HIS payfor---you guys can just pick em all up
indeed, speaking for once superstars bill richardson, christine gregoire, brian schweitzer and bill ritter, governor bredesen has repeatedly called this imposition upon the 50, "the mother of unfunded mandates"
as to this ruling, topic of the op, judge vinson actually criticized the doj's reasoning as "alice in wonderland"
Judge disses Dems' 'Alice in Wonderland' health defense - Jennifer Haberkorn - POLITICO.com
his honor takes issue with the doj's argument that the fine to be imposed on those caught breathing without insurance is a TAX and therefore the proper purview of the fed
ahab obama, on the other hand, spent 2 years chasing his whale, telling us all the while that the fine was NOT a tax
judge vinson sided with the campaign and not the briefs, he ruled the fine was a PENALTY and therefore must clear the commerce clause
alice in wonderland, curiouser and curiouser
party on, progressives, aren't you proud?
