Repeal: Obamacare as the New Prohibition

From The American Spectator:

The tale of Prohibition and its repeal should serve as a cautionary tale to Obamacare supporters — and a source of inspiration to its opponents.

Simultaneously it shows in vivid historical fashion the impact of the law of unintended consequences on ambitious societal reforms — while showing with precision that it is certainly possible to reverse Obamacare if in fact it is passed.

By the end of the Prohibition period, politicians demanding repeal were a dime a dozen so politically safe was it support the cause.

It was over.

The so-called “noble experiment” had been tried, had failed miserably, and was undone by a furious American population that had learned something the hard way about how to reform — and how not to reform — society’s ills.

Said FDR on signing into law the first stage of legislation that re-legalized beer and wine: “I think I’ll have a beer.”

Repeal Obamacare?

Yes it can be done. You can drink to it.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
