Obama: I Won’t Enforce The CLASS Act, But I Won’t Repeal It Either
And now from the also-overflowing doubletalk file:
President Obama is against repealing the health law’s long-term-care CLASS Act and might veto Republican efforts to do so, an administration official tells The Hill, despite the government’s announcement Friday that the program was dead in the water.
“We do not support repeal,” the official said Monday. “Repealing the CLASS Act isn’t necessary or productive. What we should be doing is working together to address the long-term care challenges we face in this country.”
I can come up with 3 possible reasons for this move:
- Massive incompetence. Always a strong possibility for this gang of clowns.
- Obama feels that even repealing part of ObamaCare would signal that the whole thing is a failure. He’d be right, of course.
- They intend to enforce it after Obama’s re-election when he doesn’t have to worry about facing the voters again. Cold and cynical, but that’s the kind of people Obama’s surrounded himself with.
Which one is correct, I dunno.
