Obama's propagandists are quick to point out that among the hefty majority of Americans who are opposed to ObamaCare, a tiny fraction* tell pollsters that the legislation's "approach toward health care is is not liberal enough."
Not liberal enough? What does that mean? Who are these uber-liberal people, and what do they really want?
Notable point: Over 1000 ObamaCare waivers have been handed out, and a great many of those waivers have been awarded to groups who cry out for increasingly liberal health care schemes. But for their own health care needs, these liberals prefer the ultra-conservative status quo.
Now even the Weiner is looking for a way out.
Anthony Weiner (WEE-nur), the self-proclaimed author and embodiment of Obamacare, is looking for a waiver favor:
Last year, New York Rep. Anthony Weiner took personal ownership of the magnificent health care law, even to the point of proclaiming “the bill and I are one” like a monk trying to attain enlightenment using nothing but willpower, outbursts and a trillion dollars of other people’s money. In short, Anthony Weiner loves the health care bill.It’s just that… well… it might not be right for his district:Rep. Anthony Weiner said Wednesday he was looking into how a health law waiver might work for New York City.Weiner, who is likely to run for mayor of New York, said that because of the city’s special health care infrastructure, his office was looking into alternatives that might make more sense.
Yes, we're talking about this Weiner:
Our Lord Anthony Weiner: ObamaCare in the Flesh
"I basically read the bill, wrote the bill ― the bill and I are one."
As Doug Powers has hinted, the people of Weiner's NYC-based U.S. Congressional district should do themselves (and the rest of us) a huge favor and vote for a waiver of the Weiner himself.
An Obamacare Weiner-Waiver for New York City?
Darrell Issa's ObamaCare Caption Contest!
*In the general population of American adults (voters and non-voters), CNN found that 13% of those who reject the Democrats' massive and terribly expensive health care experiment answer "not liberal enough" to the following question:
21. (IF OPPOSE) Do you oppose that legislation because you think its approach toward health care is too liberal, or because you think it is not liberal enough?
Of course "that legislation" is Obamacare.
And that 13% is not 13% of everyone who responded to the pollster. That 13% is actually only 13% of the 59% who reject ObamaCare, i.e., only about 7.6% of the total.
Take a step back to see the bigger picture. In CNN's poll, almost 60% of all Americans (including uninformed non-voters) said that they oppose Obamacare. Only 37% said that they support Obamacare. If CNN had polled voters only (the politically active folks who actually hire and fire politicians at the ballot box), the results of CNN's poll likely would have been even more favorable to conservatives. (Polls that sample all adults will skew a bit more liberal than those composed of registered or likely voters.)
