RNC: Pity Poor Obamacare on Its Birthday



Text  



The RNC video department is having fun lately. Today they offer poor anthropomorphized Obamacare, crying, because nobody wants to remember his birthday.

I’m picturing a road movie with Stimulus, except that Obamacare gets frustrated because he has to pay for everything, because Stimulus isn’t working.

UPDATE: Clearly the RNC creative team is emulating Schoolhouse Rock’s old instructional video, “I’m just a bill”;

Perhaps we could update the lyrics . . .

Once just a bill, yes, once only a bill, now my popularity is nil and my IPAB will kill . . .

I was a bill, now a law, a disaster most people foresaw . . .

Using tricks like deem-and-pass, Democrats said to voters, “you can kiss my” — mandate.
