What Don't They get?
No, they don't, as politicians will do anything to get reelected. Either they are delusional and think this is what we want, or more likely, they see it as an opportunity that will not come again. They know as time goes on, people will become more disenchanted with the democrats and Obama and this is the only chance they can do it before 2010.
This is in part a fabian socialist agenda as it is incremental socialism, and they also know that once a bill is passed, it is very difficult to take it back. Remember the great society? The gun control act of 1968? The creation of HEW? Go back to the IRS... Politicians, specifically those on the left have been practicing this incrementalism for over 90 years. Every inch they take we never get back. At this point, I hate to say it, but our only recourse is the SCOTUS. Why all these government programs haven't been challenged before, particularly that we have had enough center right members on the bench to make headway. My only guess is that it wasn't important to the Bush administration, which proved itself to be more socialist in some ways than the clinton administration.
At this point I am not hopeful, even if the GOP and/or 3rd party candidates unseat incumbents in 2010. It will be interesting to see how Doug Hoffman does, and the governor race in New Jersey. These will be the test to see what may come. I hope it is something better.
Thank you for reading this blog.
