David Freddoso on naive liberals being hit with a clue-bat over ObamaCare:
Principled, respectable liberals are hopelessly naive about government and its inherent shortcomings. When they see government money wasted and large corporations buying influence, they earnestly call for more rules — Transparency! Reform! Campaign finance regulations! — as though no one will find away around the new rules. As though the ongoing game of government plunder in Washington is any less damaging to our nation when we’re able to watch it happen in high definition.
That explains the Left’s rude awakening on Obamacare. In the legislative process, liberals have seen their juicy steaks devoured by savage beasts. They fail to appreciate that they caused this problem by placing their precious cattle in the middle of a wolf pack.
