The Dawn of Wisdom

Former Democratic staffer, burned by Obamacare: “I was wrong. Very wrong.”:

“‘I spent two years defending Obamacare. I had constituents scream at me, spit at me and call me names that I can’t put in print. The congressman was not re-elected in 2010 mainly because of the anti-Obamacare anger. When the congressman was not re-elected, I also (along with the rest of our staff) lost my job. I was upset that because of the health care issue, I didn’t have a job anymore but still defended Obamacare because it would make health care available to everyone at, what I assumed, would be an affordable price. I have now learned that I was wrong. Very wrong.’ “

Too bad the rest of us got pulled along for the ride so these people could learn some wisdom.

BLOOMBERG:

“The Obamacare rollout is leading to the cancellation of hundreds of thousands of health insurance plans nationwide, contradicting President Barack Obama’s repeated pledge that people who like their coverage can keep it.” The act never would have passed without that promise, which was known to the Administration to be false even as it was made.
