Bob Shrum Predictions on Obamacare...my prediction is Shrum passes out from hyperventilation

Democrat Political Consultant Bob Shrum
Showing His Number of Wins
Someone get Bob Shrum a paper bag before he hyperventilates and passes out.    I do not profess this is in the bag and that the Court will over turn Obamacare (although I hope they do so).  It will come down to Anthony Kennedy and which way he goes.  If the Supreme Court does not over turn this law, we must continue to try to get this legislation removed.  Beyond being unconstitutional, Obamacare is a fiscal and policy abomination (and I do not use that term lightly) that will cause far more harm than good.  Given our massive fiscal woes and liabilities, the last thing this country needs is an expansion of medical entitlements.  The Democrats, overly confident going into these hearings, came out in full panic mode.

If their fears turn out confirmed, the spin from the left that this somehow helps President Obama is wrong.  The main reason more than 50% of voters oppose it.  Having the crown jewel of President Obama's domestic legislation fail because it was poorly drafted will be a "Big F'n Deal" but it will not be a victory for President Obama...
James Carville is wrong on this too...
There is a grain of truth in this nonsense.  Obamacare is so bad that if it does stand, and goes into effect, historically the Democrats will wear this albatross around their necks (not one Republican voted for it).  All other entitlement programs had broad bi-partisan support.  That alone should give you pause.  It will make health care more expensive and less effective.   It is intended over time to drive private insurance out of the market and to become a single payer system.    You may say (if you are a Progressive) "Great, what is wrong with that?"  The problem is the government is so over extended now, Medicare is completely underwater, Social Security is just getting by, that we really cannot afford this.  And what you will end up with is "free" health care that does not cover transplants, cancer treatments, chronic diseases, etc.  The damage the Democrats will do to the country in the process will be enormous.

So I hope the Supreme Court does the right thing.

    And yet Republicans are about to nominate a guy who not only created Obamacare Lite but urged Obama to use it as a template for the full-strength version. The one guy in GOP politics who actually is vulnerable on this issue.

    1. We can only hope is does not flip (or flop) back on this issue. Pathetic, isn't it?
