In Passing

Lots of talk...


Jennifer Rubin:

[Obamacare,] the Democrats’ "historic achievement,” shocking as it seems, turns out to be an expensive, jobs-crippling monstrosity that is filled with unintended consequences...  And today, the Associated Press reports:
President Barack Obama’s health care law would let several million middle-class people get nearly free insurance meant for the poor...

Up to 3 million people could qualify for Medicaid in 2014 as a result of the anomaly.
Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s communications director e-mailed me in response to this report, "Nearly every week we find a new reason to say ‘repeal and replace.’ ”
But that’s all the Republicans have been doing- blathering endlessly.

Over at Instapundit, Glenn Reynolds created a meme[1] about the talk-vs-action hypocrisy of the global warming activists.  Well, Glenn has inspired me:  I will no longer believe the Republicans really want to do something about Obamacare until they actually do something– anything– about it.

Until then, it’s just empty talk.  Just like everything else the gentry GOP has "accomplished” since the 2010 election.”

Elsewhere:
Bill Quick:
Remember all the promises from the "Republican Revolution” House class of 2010...?

Jeff Goldstein declares war:  I, Outlaw
