Dr. J, in a letter your Volgi’s been remiss in posting, waxes a bit despondent about the looming threat of Obamacare. The bulk of his missive concerned the Slaughter Stratagem, ginned up by ’Puter’s neighbor, Weezy. Since that seems to be inoperative at the moment, according to the Senate parliamentarian, we’ll skip over that part, with further apologies for not putting it up in a timely fashion. However, the good doctor’s lament is:
Even if they go through with this, and pass Obamacare, what can, and more realistically, what will be done?
So many House seats are gerrymandered to the point where there’s no chance at a super-majority to override a veto, and I don’t think we can have a twenty-seat swing in the Senate.
While the polling says that ≈75% oppose Obamacare, and many of us are vociferously opposed, I strongly suspect that when it’s passed against the will of the people, there’s nothing we can do about it except shrug and see who Hello Kitty picks on the Bachelorette (Hello Kitty Edition).
Sadly, President Obama and Speaker Pelosi are possessed on this issue and will not give up until they win. Period.
Anybody got some words of consolation for Doc? Is repeal in the cards if they get this thing through?
