A Marvelously Succinct Point

Megan McArdle:

Who are you more likely to leave:  the spouse who makes a pass at another woman, and then thinks the better of it, or the spouse who goes through with it?  Maybe you’ll leave them either way.  But it does not follow that they are better off going through with it.  I don’t think it is actually true that trying to pass a bill people hate, and then thinking the better of it because it turns out the electorate hates it, is no different from trying to pass a bill people hate, finding out that they really, really hate it, and then ignoring them and pushing it through anyway.

But the Democrats, led by the ghastly trio of Obama, Reid and Pelosi continue to scheme and plot on ways to, as McArdle puts it, “Git ‘er done”. (yes, I know that’s a play off Larry the Cable Guy.)

Pelosi has promised the ObamaCare will pass by whatever means necessary:

“You go through the gate. If the gate’s closed, you go over the fence. If the fence is too high, we’ll pole vault in. If that doesn’t work, we’ll parachute in. But we’re going to get health care reform passed for the American people.”

Democrats might want to get a look at the Pelosi Mark I Policy Parachute before they sign on to her descent into the valley of the Little Bighorn.

    Pilosi’s says she’ll pass Obamacare “for the American people.” Yet, the American people have loudly and clearly rejected big government healthcare over and over. We don’t want it.

    So, what’s Pilosi’s explanation for pushing so hard for legislation the people oppose? Her Majesty has yet to grace her disobedient subjects with a response.

    In America our elected representatives are expected to represent us, not to force their pet projects on an unwilling citizenry. In 1776 we fought a War to educate King George III on that point, I hope we can teach that same lesson to Queen Pilosi at the ballot box in 2010.

    I very much prefer Larry the Cable Guy to that notorious trio named above. He may not know cable repair, but he knows Americans better than they do, and, he respects us and our freedom.
