Obamacare is so bad, as Ted Cruz said, that the New York Times is now admitting that Obamacare is a hidden redistribution scheme unknown to the general public and the New Republic, far Left publication, says Obamacare failure is a threat to Liberalism.

Astonishing.

"Hiding in plain sight behind that pledge - visible to health policy experts but not the general public - was the redistribution required to extend health coverage to those who had been either locked out or priced out of the market."

http://www.nytimes.com...;

"Liberalism has spent the better part of the past century attempting to prove that it could competently and responsibly extend the state into new reaches of American life. With the rollout of the Affordable Care Act, the administration has badly injured that cause, confirming the worst slurs against the federal government.

It has stifled bad news and fudged promises; it has failed to translate complex mechanisms of policy into plain English; it can"t even launch a damn website. What"s more, nobody responsible for the debacle has lost a job or suffered a demotion. Over time, the Affordable Care Act"s technical difficulties can be repaired. Reversing the initial impressions of government ineptitude won"t be so easy."

Where's the argument?

The argument is that the right wingers who were once labeled crazy and insane for opposing Obamacare are now vindicated as people like the New York Times have to admit that we were right all along. Even the Liberal Obama worshipers at New Republic had to admit Obamacare sucks.

This isn't even news. All taxes are a form of redistribution, even thoughs that are collected to pay for the military.

The Republicans get what they deserve for not having the balls to stand up and propose a solution that works better than their self imposed government regulation which forces hospitals to finance medical debt of even non-citizens.

What about that redistribution of income? Hard working middle class with jobs paying for people who have emergencies and can't pay up front. All because the Republicans made a law which forces hospitals to accept any and all patients.
