For the past week, all adjectives with any possible negative connotation are being used to describe how Obamacare’s been going so far, and even Democrats have joined on the pile-on. Rush Limbaugh argued Monday that the White House is so terrified of the Democrats actually jumping ship, they’re doing whatever they can to warn of just how devastating it would be if Obamacare was to get stopped in any way.
Limbaugh noted it’s not just the White House, but the liberal media, who’s warning that if Obamacare fails, it will be, as Charles Krauthammer put it, “the collapse of American liberalism.” And so the pressure is on for Democrats not to abandon a liberal cause that President Obama spent so much time fighting for.
Plenty of Democrats have come out of the woodwork to slam the Obamacare rollout and broken promises, to the point where the White House is legitimately worried about a “mutiny,” and Limbaugh said this might be Obama’s comeuppance for not doing more for the party.
“This is where Obama not caring about the Democrats all these years might come back and bite him, because he’s not going out of his way to help them, give them money. We’ll see. We’ll see what kind of loyalty they have to him.”
