Republicans Assume Obama Has a Plan to Save Us from Them

We're a little less than two months into this new Congress and it's already pretty clear that Republicans are much more adept at obstruction as a minority than they are at governing as a majority. But things are actually worse than we think when they have to resort to claiming that President Obama must have a secret plan to protect Americans from the stuff they're trying blow up.
Some Republicans say they simply do not believe that the Obama administration isn’t developing a fallback plan in case the Supreme Court dismantles a piece of the healthcare law this summer...

Both parties have repeatedly said that a plaintiff victory in the case could cause massive damage to ObamaCare, perhaps even crippling the law.

With such high stakes, Republicans say the administration must be crafting a plan to avert disaster.
So let's get this straight. Republicans crafted this ridiculous lawsuit that some of their own plaintiffs don't support in order to decimate Obamacare and take healthcare away from millions of Americans. But they're just sure that - if they win - President Obama has a secret plan to clean up the mess they made.

Remember...these are the same folks that go around claiming that Barack Obama doesn't love America. That's today's Republican Party for ya folks.


  1. But they have a plan - if it does blow up, it's HIS fault for not having a plan to rescue them from their plan. See? Nice and tidy: Blame Obama.

  2. But you can be sure Republicans are crafting a plan in case the SC rules against King. Launch as many more frivolous lawsuits as possible and hope a couple make it to the SC. If you don't succeed, try, try again. And they will.
