We’ve got Senators who voted for a law, signed it, and sent it up the chain for implementation, who are now pissed because no one told them what was in the bill.
If this isn’t an admission of total and complete incompetence, I don’t know what is. It isn’t just that she voted for a bill and had no idea what she was voting for – not that this isn’t inexcusable enough as it is – it’s that there were a LOT of people telling her that this law was bad, and she not only didn’t listen, but wouldn’t listen, and not only wouldn’t listen, but actively denigrated the people warning her as being backwards and lost.
The funniest thing about it is that she is now sending strongly worded letters to Medicare and Medicaid telling them to stop implementing the very things she voted for and approved, and she sees absolutely nothing wrong with this. What a fucking idiot.
But what the hell, these are our superiors, right? We’re supposed to trust that they’ve got it handled and cede our sovereignty and individual responsibility to them to take care of as they see fit. They are so much smarter than us. If only we’d just give them control; let THEM sort things out, drive the economy, and decide who gets what. Things would be so much better. Right? Guys?
