Obamacare opponent out of step

April 17, 2011

Your writer who calls for the repeal of Obamacare on its one-year anniversary ("One year later, time to toss Obama health care") needs to get with the program of the rest of the right wing. He has displayed his obsolescence in excoriating Obamacare.

Rep. Paul Ryan, in his Republican budget proposal, assumed that Obamacare would do what it is supposed to do, namely cut the deficit significantly. Either Ryan must believe those figures must be true and tacitly endorse the estimated savings of Obamacare, or else it is just a smoke and mirrors act in order to justify even bigger tax cuts for the rich. Either way, this writer needs to get in lock step with the rest of the GOP. Will Granny be euthanized, or a tax rate topping out at 25 percent? Take your pick, but you can't have both.
