Wait, what? Did this “reporter” miss the Rose Garden end zone dance the other day? How the debate over ObamaCare was over, how it was such a massive success once they allegedly forced 7 million people into this mess?
They didn’t spike the ball? Hello!
Democrats on Capitol Hill are treading carefully in the wake of this week’s surprise enrollment success for President Obama’s healthcare reform law.
While lawmakers are hailing the news that 7.1 million people have gained insurance through ObamaCare exchanges ahead of the first enrollment deadline — a number exceeding the initial goal set by the administration — many are also eager to direct the focus away from the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and concentrate instead on bread-and-butter economic issues ahead of November’s midterms.
“Elections are always about jobs,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Tuesday. “So I think that, while … we’re proud of the Affordable Care Act, we now pivot to job creation.”
Wait, pivoting to jobs? But ObamaCare was supposed to create 4 millions jobs according to … Nancy Pelosi and was supposed to magically create 400,000 upon passage alone four years ago. Her words, we’ll remind you:
This is a montage from yesterday, last night, and this morning of the Drive-Bys orgasmically reveling in Obama’s “victory lap.”
