Joe Biden’s radical Obamacare 2.0 proposal is still too sensible for Democrats

Joe Bidens radical Obamacare 20 proposal is still too sensible for Democrats

A year ago, if any conservative analyst had read the proposed healthcare fix released by former Vice President Joe Biden yesterday, they would have said it was a radical departure from what Democrats have been saying for a while. They would have noted that it took many of the original provisions ejected from Obamacare at its inception and reinserted them on steroids. But that would have been the reaction a year ago. Today, his proposed plan seems moderate when compared to the extreme socialistic principles promoted by many Democrats as their leftward lurch has yielded Medicare-for-All and different variations of single-payer healthcare.

Biden’s plan, as radical as it is, will not be acceptable to the progressives in his party today. It’s not a departure from the failed Obamacare concept. It’s doubling down on them. But even doubling down on Obamacare is a far cry from single-payer. Some will say it’s a step in that direction, and they would be partially correct, but only because Biden’s plan will fail even harder than its predecessor.

It took Biden to bring the far-left and the conservative base together in agreement on one thing: Bidencare will not work. The reasons the two sides believe this are different, but the end result is the same. Biden’s populist plan may appeal to those left-of-center, but unfortunately for the Democratic frontrunner the ranks of people who qualify as left-of-center are dwindling. Many are actively becoming hyper-leftists. Some are seeing the errors of their ways and joining the #WalkAway movement. Biden is relying on a resurgence of moderation in his party and the issue being forced by the Democratic Establishment. Will it be enough?

As I’ve said since before he announced his candidacy, the answer to that question is, “No.” The party is leaving him. Anything short of single-payer, which few Americans actually understand properly, will not be enough to inspire the Democratic base. A couple of years ago it may have, but the angst of Bernie Sanders having the nomination stolen from him in 2016 yielded the rise of the Justice Democrats and the scourge of radical progressive ideologies prominent in the party today. They blame Hillary Clinton and the DNC for Trump being in office, so they’ve turned to radicalism as their weapon of choice to slay that dragon, better known in their circles as the occupant of the White House.

What Biden has proposed with his Affordable Care Act 2.0 is going to be portrayed as a sensible stepping stone to single-payer. Instead of eliminating the health insurance companies outright, he plans on having a public option that will allow the government to compete with private carriers. This would make sense to the radical progressives if they took a moment to acknowledge Medicare-for-All is such a drastic departure from the current and former healthcare systems that it’s bound to fail miserably. But they won’t. They’ll continue to say we don’t need to ease in. We need to blow up the system and rebuild it quickly by putting the United States government in complete control over how, when, and why we receive healthcare.

For a group that claims to oppose fascism, they’re ready to embrace the most fascist policy proposal ever to hit the collective consciousness of the United States.

Biden’s play for the middle while appeasing the left won’t work well for him. His plan will be attacked from both sides, forcing him to say things to appease one side that will upset the other. ACA 2.0, or Bidencare if you prefer, is DOA.

Dianne Feinstein’s comment on Dayton shooter skipped one important point

Dianne Feinsteins comment on Dayton shooter skipped one important point

Gun control is the talk of the town as the week comes to a close. Well, that and Greenland. And Jeffrey Epstein. But the mass shootings two weeks ago has DC buzzing, media furiously reporting, and activists on both sides of the debate furiously Tweeting at each other. Senator Dianne Feinstein weighed in on the discussion by pointing out some important facts about the alleged Dayton shooter, Connor Betts.

Her facts are correct. Her analysis is off because it missed one important point. We’ll get to that in a minute, but let’s declare once and for all (though I’m sure I’ll have to repeat myself later) that the 2nd Amendment IS NOT ABOUT HUNTING OR HOME PROTECTION. Our right to keep and bear firearms was put into the Constitution by our founders because they recognized what could happen if the people had no recourse against an oppressive government. Just as Venezuelans didn’t realize they danger they were putting themselves into when they allowed their guns to be taken away, so too do many Americans put way too much trust in government.

The authoritarian left wants guns because they know they’ll never achieve their endgame as long as the people can defend themselves from tyranny.

Feinstein is correct that the Dayton shooter was able to cause an extreme amount of death and injury in a short period of time. Police were quick to respond, otherwise it could have been much worse. But as our EIC pointed out in a Tweet, Feinstein’s narrative is worthless when you look at it from the opposite perspective.

Gun control is not the solution to our mass shooting problem. If anything, gun control has enabled shooters to enact their crimes without fear of many “good guys with a gun” to stop them. We must never give up our 2nd Amendment rights.

President says AOC ‘fuming’ that Tlaib, Omar are becoming the faces of the party

President says AOC fuming that Tlaib Omar are becoming the faces of the party

President Trump took to Twitter to make fun of the opposition party as two of its most outspoken members, Representatives Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, continue making headlines and stirring up controversy. He even threw in an accusation against Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for good measure.

There are no indications that this is accurate, but that’s not the point. This isn’t hard policy or thoughtful analysis. It’s a petty jab, and while many Americans, including some of his fans, are against him taking shots at the opposition in such a manner, this is the society we live in and it includes a President who takes jabs on Twitter. You can stress over it or sit back and enjoy it. I choose the latter.

For AOC’s part, she took the jab with a chuckle.

Beyond the diversion this offers ahead of a weekend, reality is probably more closely reflected by the President’s Tweet than Democrats are comfortable admitting, at least the part about them being the face of the party. “The Squad” makes more headlines among the four of them than the rest of the Democrats combined, and this includes the powerful heads of committees who are actively investigating President Trump ahead of a possible impeachment.

Both Democrats and Republicans have different degrees of infatuation with “The Squad.” Are they a real threat to our republic, as many on both sides claim, or are they merely a diversion from real decisions being made in DC?

Kirsten Gillibrand wants to confiscate guns

Kirsten Gillibrand wants to confiscate guns

Senator and failing Democratic candidate for president Kirsten Gillibrand wants to confiscate your guns. The former “conservative” when it was politically expedient to be one in upstate New York has now gone the way of most her new party. She’s a radical progressive who wants your guns.

For someone who used to have an “A” rating with the NRA, she’s come a long way to hit rock bottom by calling for “assault weapons” bans and mandatory buybacks, AKA confiscations. Oh, but she won’t actually SAY they’re mandatory buybacks. She danced around that question like a pop star.

Gun activist Colion Noir broke down a recent interview she did with CNN. It was clear, as Noir pointed out, that CNN has already weighed Gillibrand in the balance and found her wanting. They went after her to corner her on her old gun rights support and tried to get her to admit what she wants to do as president with gun confiscations.

It’s funny watching Democrats flail around trying to get attention for themselves. There are only a handful of candidates leaving a mark, and Kirsten Gillibrand isn’t one of them. But she’s still trying to do damage to the 2nd Amendment on her way out.
