Don't fall For the CNN/MSNBC Dana Bash Obamacare Spin/attacks on GOP House Members

As I type this I’m watch­ing Dana Bash “Bash” rep Tom MacArthur for his efforts on the Oba­macare repeal. They (and MSNBC) have gone all in on the “GOP is risk­ing their major­ity by doing this” and telling their view­ers that this is going to make all the dif­fer­ence to Democrats.

For those of you who might actu­ally be fool­ish enough to believe them let me remind you of something.

Seven years ago we were told by CNN and the MSM how pop­u­lar Oba­macare was going to be, how Repub­li­cans were fools for not join­ing Democ­rats in sup­port­ing it and reacted in dis­be­lief when they lost the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives over it. And insisted that regard­less of the results Oba­macare was popular.

The best answer to this was given by Ted Cruz dur­ing the 2016 pri­maries in New Hamp­shire when he said:

Ted Cruz: Think about this for a sec­ond Since Pres­i­dent Obama was elected we’ve had 3 elec­tions. Two of them 2010 & 2014 the num­ber one issue was repeal­ing Oba­macare and we won his­toric tidal wave elec­tions that shat­tered the his­tory books. In between, in 2012 we searched out and found the one per­son on the face of the planet who had actu­ally designed & imple­mented a pro­gram just like oba­macare and that’s who we nom­i­nated as our pres­i­den­tial can­di­date. Lit­er­ally there are seven bil­lion peo­ple on the planet and you could walk up to any­one one of them and say “Excuse me Sir have you designed and imple­mented a pro­gram like Obama care”

Man in Crowd: Not lately

Cruz: Then you would make a much bet­ter can­di­date. Lunacy!

Here is the video, exclu­sively from DaT­e­chGuy who was the only reporter there btw

Now we have those same media who told us how Oba­macare was going to guar­an­tee a Demo­c­rat majori­ties for years. The same media that told us that Oba­macare was going to become more and more pop­u­lar, the same media that told us that this pres­i­dent couldn’t win the nom­i­na­tion, or the elec­tion and couldn’t get this bill passed, that same media spent a good amount of time on Thurs­day insist­ing that repeal­ing this bill was going to be polit­i­cal sui­cide for the GOP.

Now in fair­ness said media will be doing all they can to help the Democ­rats advance this meme and will expend time and trea­sure to do so, but let me say one thing here.

If you are a mem­ber of the GOP stu­pid enough to believe this, then you deserve to lose your seat.

Now I admit, I would have liked a bet­ter bill, I admit that the Senate’s bill will be a dif­fer­ent one and it would not sur­prise me to see it take six months or more for the final bill to get to the president’s desk.

But believe me the peo­ple wor­ried should not be the GOP mem­bers decided if they should replace Oba­macare with this bill (a bill they can tweak all they like later) but the peo­ple wor­ried should be red state dems in the Sen­ate who had not voted for Oba­macare put in the posi­tion where they have a choice to keep Oba­macare or replace it.

Those are the folk in dan­ger and noth­ing the MSM says will make it otherwise.

Don’t be a sucker.

Clos­ing thought, the fact that any repeal bill was passed is almost mirac­u­lous, stuff like this never gets turned back, the day before Scott Brown was elected I pre­dicted on a live pod­cast that if Oba­macare passed it would stay. I“m happy to be wrong.

Update Pow­er­line gets it:

HOUSE VOTES TO REPEAL AND REPLACE OBA­MACARE; DEMOC­RATS LOSE BIG AND SPIN FURI­OUSLY

and Don Surber notices some­thing:

By a 217213 vote, the House passed a trillion-​dollar tax cut on Thurs­day and sent it to the Sen­ate. Every Demo­c­rat voted against it, as did 20 turn­coat Republicans.

You prob­a­bly think I am daft for writ­ing that, but that is exactly what hap­pened when the House voted to replace Oba­macare and replace it with some­thing saner. Rolling back Oba­macare also rolled back the taxes the Demo­c­ra­tic Party imposed.

Amer­i­cans for Tax Reform added up the taxes repealed and the total was a trillion-​dollar boost to the econ­omy over the next decade.

Maybe it’s just me but I think peo­ple like hav­ing their taxes cut

And insisted that regardless of the results Obamacare was popular.

Ted Cruz: Think about this for a second Since President Obama was elected we’ve had 3 elections. Two of them 2010 & 2014 the number one issue was repealing Obamacare and we won historic tidal wave elections that shattered the history books. In between, in 2012 we searched out and found the one person on the face of the planet who had actually designed & implemented a program just like obamacare and that’s who we nominated as our presidential candidate. Literally there are seven billion people on the planet and you could walk up to anyone one of them and say “Excuse me Sir have you designed and implemented a program like Obama care”

Man in Crowd: Not lately

Cruz: Then you would make a much better candidate. Lunacy!

Now we have those same media who told us how Obamacare was going to guarantee a Democrat majorities for years. The same media that told us that Obamacare was going to become more and more popular, the same media that told us that this president couldn’t win the nomination, or the election and couldn’t get this bill passed, that same media spent a good amount of time on Thursday insisting that repealing this bill was going to be political suicide for the GOP.

Now in fairness said media will be doing all they can to help the Democrats advance this meme and will expend time and treasure to do so, but let me say one thing here.

If you are a member of the GOP stupid enough to believe this, then you deserve to lose your seat.

Now I admit, I would have liked a better bill, I admit that the Senate’s bill will be a different one and it would not surprise me to see it take six months or more for the final bill to get to the president’s desk.

But believe me the people worried should not be the GOP members decided if they should replace Obamacare with this bill (a bill they can tweak all they like later) but the people worried should be red state dems in the Senate who had not voted for Obamacare put in the position where they have a choice to keep Obamacare or replace it.

Those are the folk in danger and nothing the MSM says will make it otherwise.

Don’t be a sucker.

Closing thought, the fact that any repeal bill was passed is almost miraculous, stuff like this never gets turned back, the day before Scott Brown was elected I predicted on a live podcast that if Obamacare passed it would stay. I”m happy to be wrong.

and Don Surber notices something:

By a 217-213 vote, the House passed a trillion-dollar tax cut on Thursday and sent it to the Senate. Every Democrat voted against it, as did 20 turncoat Republicans.

You probably think I am daft for writing that, but that is exactly what happened when the House voted to replace Obamacare and replace it with something saner. Rolling back Obamacare also rolled back the taxes the Democratic Party imposed.

Americans for Tax Reform added up the taxes repealed and the total was a trillion-dollar boost to the economy over the next decade.

Maybe it’s just me but I think people like having their taxes cut
