The political abattoir in which Democratic butchers of Obamacare slice, dice, gut and carve this “settled law” into morsels more palatable to Democrats in November elections has so bloodied the terrain that Obamacare champions must deny the obvious and hope that there are no sentient voters come Election Day.

As Obamacare shrinks into a mouth-breathing microcosm of the Democratic dream, let us not forget that many of these embarrassing changes could have been achieved in a show of bipartisan comity just a few months ago, had preening champions of the law been willing to accept Republican suggestions.

What has Democratic manipulation of this flawed legislation wrought? A president doing unfunny comedy in an attempt to inveigle the uninformed to sign up and federal courts trying to clean up the mess.

So it goes inside President Obama’s Beltway, where his doo-wop chorus sees no horror stories other than Democratic electoral woes.
