Mike Lee and Ted Cruz plan to let Obamacare happen, which is now bad, probably

It used to be good. It used to be exactly what Democrats wanted. Then they got it. Then 10/1 happened.

Alexander Bolton, The Hill:

Republican lawmakers who pushed the government shutdown to stop ObamaCare say their new plan is to sit back and watch the law self-destruct.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and other Tea Party allies of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) say the threat of a shutdown is no longer necessary to defund the Affordable Care Act (ACA) now that the administration’s rollout is flailing…

While Cruz and his allies were accused of making a tactical blunder by blocking a government spending resolution that funded ObamaCare, they say the tactic has cleared the path to victory.

A CBS News poll published Wednesday showed that 61 percent of the public disapprove of the ACA.

Which may seem like a lot, but that’s only if you know what numbers mean.

So now, get ready for the Republicans to take the blame again, because the Dems have no other option. It’s almost funny…

OUT: “Leave Obamacare alone, you teabaggers!”

IN: “Why are you teabaggers leaving Obamacare alone???”

At a certain point, the schadenfreude will wear off and the dread of what’s about to happen to us all — thanks to the stupid, lying Democrats — will kick in. I’m not quite at that point yet. Our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters won’t let me get there.

Keep panicking, you miserable leftist idiots. You poured the gasoline all over yourselves and the rest of us, and then you lit the match. Now we’re all watching as it burns down to your fingers and you whirl in circles, looking for someone, anyone to blame.


Update: This is brutal.
