Obamacare and actual liberalism are barely in adjoining area codes.

Whelp, nothing like hearing about how the "cause of liberalism" is hurt from a reactionary, right wing and religious fundamentalist news publication such as Newsmax. I'm SURE there is no vested agenda there.

AND, While we're on the subject of vested agendas, let's talk about how newsmax is running scams targeting the elderly.

Obamacare has NOTHING to do with liberalism.  Absolutely nothing.

The PPACA is a right wing Republican idea that was co-opted -- very unwisely, in my opinion -- by the Obama administration.  It is not a liberal idea.

Let's take this assertion from TFA (articulated, apparently by  New Republic editor Franklin Foer): "[t]he disastrous of President Barack Obama's signature healthcare plan has damaged the liberal cause and the idea that government can still play a competent and unifying role in solving national problems."

Ignoring for a moment the fact that the claim seems to have accidentally a word, it's nonsensical.  The PPACA is not a law that shows confidence in the ability of government to be competent.  The PPACA is a law that assumes the government is incompetent and must rely on for-profit corporations to be useful.  And, the PPACA was also extraordinarily naive, in that it assumed that Republicans would support their own creation if its success would allow a Democrat a political win.

Liberalism is hurt in the sense that you can say "Look at what happens when you listen to the Heritage Foundation!"

They are so very concerned for the liberal cause.

You know what's hurting conservatism? Conservatives.

Considering a huge gash of Obamacare opposition is from liberals who think it didn't go far enough, and who have been opposing reform since Obama took universal HC off the table, it's pretty clear that liberalism was already dead before it got there.

Only for people under the delusion that Obama is a liberal.

Well when you adopt insane right-wing derp as your health reform plan and turn it into your signature legislation you shouldn't be surprised to get egg on your face, no.

... because it's a give-away to private insurance companies that socializes their losses while privatizing their profits in exchange for only the most minimal improvements that should have been industry standards anyhow?


No, wait, it's just some moron complaining about the program having rollout issues like literally every government program ever to roll out.  Carry on, nothing of value to see here.

vpb: James!: I don't blame republicans for trying to take advantage of the issues with the website, but come on, try not to lie to yourselves.

Being a republican is all about self delusion.


Yup. They get it 7 days a week. Especially on Sunday mornings.

The cause of liberalism is a preexisting condition, though, so it's covered anyways.
