As you’ve undoubtedly noticed by now, the corporate media is utterly fixated on its preferred narrative about the Affordable Care Act – that it’s a debacle (not true), that Democrats are in full rebellion (they’re not), and that 2014 is ruined (it’s not). But facts be damned; they’ve got their erroneous, simplistic, even brain-dead narrative and they’re sticking with it, come hell or high water. Until they change it, of course, in a few days or weeks, after they get bored with this one. In the meantime, it’s great to see former (and hopefully FUTURE) House Speaker Nancy Pelosi calmly and cooly swatting away rabid lap dog David Gregory. Check it out.
By the way, I need to write more on this but for now let me just say that the absolute LAST people in the world who have any standing to criticize “Obamacare” are Republicans. For starters, it’s largely based on their ideas, such as the individual mandate and the 1993 Republican alternative to “Hillarycare.” Second, and perhaps more importantly, since Day #1 Republicans have had it in for “Obamacare” – and more broadly, President Obama – which means that anything you hear from them has ZERO credibility. Finally, Republicans have never offered a serious alternative to “Obamacare,” since apparently they don’t have one. Again, they have ZERO credibility or standing to criticize this law. They saying “lead, follow, or get the @#$@# out of the way” comes to mind here.
