Insufferable

Filed under: Health Care,Taxes & Government — Tom @ 1:02 pm

At the Corner, from Objectively Unfit and hopefully soon to be marginalized Mitt Romney (HT Alo at Brain Shavings):

RomneyOnObamaCare032110

I see there will be “no apology” from the godfather of RomneyCare for creating the prototype for ObamaCare.

Romney should know about “usurpation of the legislative process”; he’s the expert on subverting constitutions and violating his oath of office.

A Romney ascendancy to the presidency guarantees that the country will make peace with statism and fail to stop it.

  1. Heard the State Treasurer for Massachusetts on the news and he was saying that Mass. is headed for bankruptcy just like Kalifornia. RomneyCare is the one thing that will keep him from the Repub nomination in 2012.

  2. Don’t be so hard on Romney, after all he merely was for government control of health before he was against it. Sigh.

    I like how all the dems are touting all the supposed “benefits” from the bill and completely ignore all the taxes, stratospheric premium raises (especially if they go through with the short-sighted idea of having no insurance money caps AT ALL) and loss of freedoms that will come with all these “benefits.”

    Anyone see the “timeline” they released? It bizarrely claims that everyone who is uninsured is going to be willy-nilly dumped into existing private plans within a year. Tell me they can’t be really serious about such a forceful, reckless and resource draining decision. Seriously, somebody please.

  3. Creator of Romneycare blasts creator of Obamacare…

    I can’t wait to read Tom Blumer’s reaction to Mitt Romney’s latest missive. Tom coined the nickname “Objectively Unfit Mitt” during the ’08 primaries. 2:00 PM Update: “Insufferable” is right…….

  5. Tom, can you do us a great service and enumerate the taxes that will be levied by ObamaCare and the date on which they begin?

    I believe this knowledge will galvanize the 200k+ people into tax avoidance which will ultimately scuttle ObamaCare. I see this as an essential element in an effect Civil Disobedience campaign against those who currently run the government. The Object of Civil Disobedience is to get the people to stop obeying authority which by definition ends the rule of the elite.

  6. HAAAAA, and the young people going to college thought they were going to be supported by the government to finance their higher education…What a shocker.

    This is how it will work: the federal government will borrow money at 2.8 percent and then lend it to students at 6.8 percent—spending the difference on health care and new government programs. In Tennessee, more than 200,000 students have student loans, so what this latest takeover means is that those Tennessee students will, on average, pay $1,700-1,800 more in interest over 10 years—to fund the Democrats’ health care bill, instead of using that money to reduce college costs for students. According to the preliminary CBO estimate, the new bill will take $9.1 billion over 10 years from students’ interest payments to pay for this health care takeover.

    And now we know why Pelosi inserted the exclusive government funding of higher education loans cutting out the banks, to EXPLOIT the gullible youth! It’s nothing more than a stealth tax!

  7. #5, that’s coming through PJM, assuming I find the time.

    #6, those rates are higher than they were some time ago even though rates in general are lower.
