GOP takes off the gloves on Obamacare

It appears that the leadership of the GOP is finally reading and paying attention to the conservative blogosphere. Yesterday, Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin delivered the weekly GOP message that serves as equal time for the President's weekly address (it used to be known as the weekly radio address, but now most people access it via the internet), and he framed the argument in terms that come from websites like National Review Online, Poweline, PJ Media, and (ahem) American Thinker, describing the Big Obamacare Lie as "fraud."

President Obama's so-called apology, was as phony as his fraudulent marketing of ObamaCare. He seemed to be saying he was sorry Americans actually believed him, but took no responsibility for their plight. It was like telling someone you're sorry their dog died, but refusing to acknowledge you ran over the dog.

Sorry Mr. President, it didn't work. Millions of Americans are coming to realize that those are your tire tracks on their canceled policies. It is also obvious that you didn't inadvertently misspeak when you promised Americans they can keep their doctors and health plans - and do it all at a lower cost.

Those assurances weren't slight exaggerations or innocent shadings of the truth. They were statements that were fully vetted, coldly calculated and carefully crafted to deceptively sell your health care plan to a trusting public. It was a political fraud echoed relentlessly by House and Senate Democrats who should be held accountable for the disastrous consequences of their grand deception.

Consumer fraud this massive in the private sector could - and should - bear serious legal ramifications. For President Obama, however, it helped secure enough votes to pass ObamaCare, and win reelection. (snip)

I'm asking every American to believe what their eyes and ears are telling them. The federal government is dysfunctional. It is broken, ineffective and inefficient. Do you really want Washington taking over a greater share of our health care system - getting more involved in your health care decisions? Americans are finding out that is a prescription for disaster.

ObamaCare will not fix an imperfect healthcare system. It will cause more damage for far more people than any problems it will ever solve. Now is the time to start reversing that damage - before it's too late.

I am thrilled that the GOP is no longer pussyfooting around the nature of the hoax that Obama has perpetrated on the public. I do not know if Sen. Johnson's remarks were vetted, but it would make sense that because he is speaking for the party, this is more than just one man's approach to laying out where we stand politically.
