Right Thinking From The Left Coast
We didn't lose the game; we just ran out of time. - Vince Lombardi

Let’s get back to rolling back Obamacare.

Now that the distraction of the whole unfortunate and despicable Arizona killings, the subsequent MSM and leftosphere’s even more disgusting and opportunist immediate factless reaction, and the following beat down based on facts, logic, and reason that it finally incited from everyone that was not a collectivist Tea Party/Sarah Palin hating moron, is finally dying down, let’s get to something else: Obamacare and the fact it must die.  It now looks like half of the states in this Union are going to court to end this mess, and that’s music to my ears. I hope even more join up to kill this travesty.

If it is allowed to be implemented, Obamacare will eventually do deep and irreparable harm to our nation’s budget deficit. But while Obamacare is more of a long-term threat to fiscal health at the federal level, it is a clear and present danger to the states. Of the 34 million Americans who gain health insurance through Obamacare, over half (18 million) will receive it through Medicaid.

While Obamacare will pay for all of the benefit expansion for the first three years of the law, and 90% of it after that, Obamacare never pays for any of the state administrative costs for adding those 18 million Americans to their welfare rolls. That amounts to billions in unfunded federal mandates for states to absorb. That is why 33 Republican governors signed a letter to the White House and Congress making an emphatic appeal that Obamacare’s Medicaid provisions be repealed.

Make sure you read that again (emphasis mine):

That amounts to billions in unfunded federal mandates for states to absorb.

Remember things like that the next time some factually challenged, KOS talking point spouting, liberal twit tells you Obamacare will save money or, brings up the even more ludicrous notion that without Obamacare the deficit will be larger. If you understand the gimmickry used to have the CBO give them the dubious claim that this government takeover of healthcare would somehow save us $132 billion during the first decade, and now are armed with these facts about the unfunded costs passed on to the states, you shouldn’t have any problems tearing this thing apart.

Let us hope Congress stops grandstanding about taking away more of our first our second rights, to protect us from ourselves of course, and actually goes to work rolling this horrible thing back ASAP.

This.  It baffles me how anyone could buy the left’s talking points about this, or sell them for that matter.
