Trust them, they have a plan

And as soon as thy figure out what it is, they'll tell you.

The Washington Post and several others got a tape of a meeting of Republican lawmakers to talk about what to do about health care policy.

Forget what they said -- although that is interesting in itself -- and think about what that tells us: the Republicans voted 60 times to repeal Obamacare, and they assured gulllible voters that there is a better, cheaper, fairer way.

But they don't know what it is.

I have said in other forums that I expect a Republican Night of the Long Knives, and soon, and that looks more and more certain. Unlike the original, I think it will be bloodless, although considering the overlap between the haters of Obamacare and the gun nuts, I can conceive of a violent version.

The leaking of the tape (unless somehow done by a Democrat, as happened to Romney in his 47% gaffe) looks like an early step in the plot. If I were a Republican, I'd stay away from gay spas for a while.

  1. For those who wonder who pushed 'death panels,' here's one, Senator Grassley;

    "Back in 2009, Grassley accused Democrats of crafting legislation that would allow the government to “decide when to pull the plug on grandma.” That fed into fears of what Sarah Palin and others called “death panels.” There’s no such thing in the health law, but the line inflamed fears of rationing and ignited the intense opposition to Obamacare that remains to this day."
