ACA Schadenfreude

Schadenfreude – “malicious joy in the misfortunes of others,” 1922, from Ger., lit. “damage-joy,” from schaden “damage, harm, injury” (see scathe) + freude, from O.H.G. frewida “joy,” from “happy,” lit. “hopping for joy,” from P.Gmc. *frawa- (see frolic).

To say that I am experiencing a little bit of Schadenfreude over the House and Senate Democrats increasing discomfort over the fallout of their reckless passing of the Affordable Healthcare Act (i.e. ACA or ObamaCare) would be a severe understatement.  Indeed, these clowns are getting every bit of Hell from their irate constituents that they deserve.  After all:

However, I am fully sympathetic to those people who are finding themselves between a rock and a hard place with cancelled insurance plans and trying to get new insurance plans that are higher in cost and deductibles.  The exception is for those morons who thought that they could get something for nothing – you folks are getting exactly what you voted for when you bought into the Liar in Chief’s promises.  For this, I have the following graphic & comment:

When will you learn that the “progressive” Liberal Democratic politicians do not have your interests in mind with their voting records?

Now I fully understand that the Republicans have their own set of problems and issues, but I haven’t really seen them try to overtly screw over the American people with such callous disregard as the current crop of Democrats.

But the problem lies with us, the American People, for we have grown complacent and lazy, preferring to believe the lie that Government will take care of us, and that the laws of the land and the politicians that write them will protect us.  Instead of taking an active roll in using three of the following four:

…we’re forced to have this…

…by allowing the politicians of both parties to do this…

Folks, we need to understand the following:

Folks, the only way to dig ourselves out of this mess is to vote for responsible candidates of either party whose stated purpose is to repeal the biggest disaster that our government has imposed upon the American People.  The second part is to hold them to their promises – no more of the “I had to lie to get elected” bullcrap.  Vote them out of office as fast as possible with someone who will get the job done and keep on their butts to do it.

Otherwise, the fourth box above might need to be used as an absolute last resort.
