A: A deer in the headlights
Q: What expression will the Democrats display to the public reaction after they railroad the Healthcare Industry Takeover (HIT) bill through Congress?
I am fascinated at how many people think that the Tea Party protests were about Congress NOT passing their so-called healthcare reform bill. That attribute Congress approaching single digit approval ratings to not having DONE something yet. Oh how they completely misread the electorate’s mood right now.
It is absolutely amazing how unconscious some people are to the public hostility to the Democrat’s plan to takeover the healthcare industry. Amazingly, the most unconscious are the Democratic politicians. Politicians are supposed to be attuned to the will of their constituents. Of course that was probably back when Democrats actually believed in democracy. (They did? When was that?)
I believe the reaction will be cataclysmic for the Democrats. Not because they are going to ram the bill through Congress. They’ve done that far too many times for that alone to rile the public. No. This time they are going to ram the title of a bill through Congress (to be filled in later) after the public clearly and specifically told them, “NO.” Having raised two kids to colleghood, I can tell you that there is a world of difference between when children misbehave…and when children misbehave after being told not to. The children in Congress are going to try and test our patience.
Or as the vexed parent says, “What part of ‘no’ don’t you understand?”
Tar. Feathers. Any congresscritter who votes for the Healthcare Abomination. Some assembly required.
