O'Reilly to Beck: If Obamacare implodes, Democrats will be "banished for 10-15 years"

More: http://www.mediaite.com/tv/oreilly-to-glenn-beck-if-obamacare-implodes-democrats-will-be-banished-for-10-to-15-years/

Bill O’Reilly joined Glenn Beck on Monday to promote his book Killing Jesus and talk about the political drama over Obamacare and a possible government shutdown. O’Reilly lamented how little the American people care about these issues, said that the media would end up spinning a shutdown in President Obama‘s favor, and predicted that if Obamacare is implemented and it turns into a huge disaster, “the Democratic party will be banished for ten to fifteen years.”

O’Reilly told Beck he believes Ted Cruz‘s opposition to Obamacare is sincere, but at the same time he said compromise is essential for anything to get done and neither side can have the “my way or the highway” attitude.

O’Reilly also bemoaned how little people really care about this issue, tying technological distraction to political apathy that allows an “elite governing the country” doing whatever it wants without much public pushback, which Beck found to be a very “depressing,” “fascistic” painting of what’s to come.

O’Reilly said that about half of Americans simply have “no blanking clue what’s going on.” Beck asked him what he thinks is going to happen if Obamacare is implemented and turns into a massive disaster. O’Reilly responded, “Then the Democratic party will be banished for ten to fifteen years,” meaning the political fallout will be so great they’ll end up in the minority in both the House and Senate, and they won’t control the presidency in a long while.

2. If the GOPers and tools like O'Reilly really think the ACA is likely to fail,

they wouldn't be fighting so hard to keep it from going into effect. They're afraid it won't fail.

3. That's why Republican governors are deliberately refusing to establish state exchanges,

 

expand Medicaid. And when they do, there are...surprise, surprise...glitches and administrative issues.

They need to get the fuck out of here with that bullshit!

4. Kiss my bulbous ass, Bill-o

Seriously, I think you're desperate for more attention, since lots of folks turned off 60 Minutes last evening at the sight of you being featured.

5. So if I understand correctly...

 

In this logic, Ted Cruz is Gandalf, and the Democrats are the balrog?

Also, "fascistic"? This man has books published?

6. For once, I agree.

Watch it play out. If it is, indeed, an abject failure, Democrats will bear the voter's rage for a generation. If it is an overwhelming success, it may be the end of today's republican party. I suspect this is why the right is resisting so fiercely.

8. Conservatives pushing young people away from Obamacare to make it top-heavy with seniors (to fail)

If too few young people (or relatively young but healthy) sign up, then too little premiums will be collected to fund the seniors who are expected to draw more than they put in.

Note: This is generally how insurance works anyway.

The Koch brothers with their disgusting vaginal anti-ObamaCare ad want to strangle ObamaCare as a 'post-birth abortion'. The ad and other tactics (a lot of lying) are intended to drive young people away.

10. If they really believed that

they would quit trying to block it. However, they know the opposite is true.

11. Exactly. If republicans really thought that ACA would fail and lead to 15 years of GOP rule,

they would make sure that no republicans voted for it (mission accomplished) and that the liberals on the Supreme Court (with 1 conservative required to sacrifice himself) approve its constitutionality. Then they keep talking about how bad it is, but make sure that they don't get in the way of a Democratic implosion.

That would be what they would do if they really thought ACA would fail and be a boon to GOP politicians. Obviously, that is not what they really believe.

everything the Right predicts for us bounces off us and sticks to them.
