One size doesn't fit all, as Obama would have you believe

What a show last week. Shamefully, I take perverse pleasure watching the president get hammered by his own ineptitude and core dishonesty. Finally “what goes around” has made the orbit and is coming around.

It’s no secret I dislike President Obama but have never thought him stupid. I do however think he’s a liar of the first magnitude.

I’m sure his supporters are rushing to knit together a blanket of plausible deniability under which he can take cover. Sadly, our president’s best defense is being clueless?

Many said Obamacare would be a train wreck, but I didn’t understand it enough to pass judgment. Now I’m totally amazed such a ridiculously obtuse monstrosity could’ve squeezed through even a Pelosi and Reid Congress.

Big liberal government must pound everybody into the same consistency. They have to produce a political smoothie without lumps of individuality; otherwise people retain choices and options, which is socialist Kryptonite.

To that end Democrats constructed this “one size fits all” mandatory universal menu of health services regardless of individual needs. My sons are thrilled they’re finally getting maternity benefits.

Plans carry “unisex” rates. Because women’s health insurance rates are generally higher than men’s, they decided to go gender neutral and charge everybody the same. Note that higher costs for women over men were produced by market realities, not political dogma.
