New ObamaCare Plan: Lipstick on a Pig

The Democrats have lost the health care reform debate:   that much is clear in the polling and by their actions.  However, the Obama-Pelosi-Reid Team are not ready to throw in the towel.  One just has to refer to last Thursday’s “bipartisan” Health Care summit to see that Obama and crew are still trying to rahm it through regardless of the short-term political costs.

So, as an attempt to look “bipartisan” the Obama Nation in Washington are now trying a re-re-re-REwrite of ObamaCare possibly including some of the GOP’s ideas floated last week, while eliminating some of those transparently terrible bribes included in the Senate bill.  If the bill were ONLY the Republican’s ideas then I’d say give it a go, but this is merely a transparent attempt to write in a few pandering paragraphs into the existing 2000-page monstrosity in order to convince a few fringe RINOs to vote for it.

To paraphrase our own President:  “You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig.”  Wobbly Republicans need to take care not to be lured into this ruse by the Dems — let the Dems hang by their own rope.  “Bipartisan” statism is still statism, regardless of who votes for it.
