Bravepaw tweets his feelings on Obamacare.
Tim Pawlenty just excitedly tweeted that we should all check out his statement on the "1 yr anniversary of Obamacare."

For such a momentous twitterduction, the statement is decidely brief--just about three tweets worth of text. In it, Pawlenty calls Obama's healthcare reforms "one of the most flawed and misguided laws in modern history."

Really? The most flawed and misguided law in modern history? Let's put that to the test in the jump.

Here's the tweet:

And here's the statement it links to:

One year ago today, President Obama signed into law the Federal government takeover of health care, one of the most flawed and misguided laws in modern history. Obamacare takes our health care system in the wrong direction, failing to reduce costs and improve quality. The law infringes on individuals' and states' rights by forcing individuals to purchase a good or service, which is why I joined a lawsuit calling the law unconstitutional. If courts do not do so first, as President, I would support the immediate repeal of Obamacare and replace it with market-based health care reforms.
As for that fact-check: Is providing healthcare for millions of people really worst than The Gulf of Tonkin Resolution?

It's not the first time Pawlenty has picked the wrong horse to ride. If Obamacare doesn't lower health care costs for most of us it'll be because the GOPS refused to include either strategy that would have kept costs down: single payer and/or public option. Republicans can blame themselves for any continued high costs. Why say forced participation in health care is unconstitutional and infinges on personal rights? What then about SS? No choice there either. Forced participation in health care will simply turn free-loaders into payers.Replace Obamacare with market-based health care? ...Hey, T-Paw, that's what we've got now; great, aint it?Pawlenty's horse ride on don't ask/don't tell is another backward-in-the-saddle bummer. The military is made up of adults. They can cope with whatever imagined homo/hetero sexual calamities just as well as we civilians can. Join the 21st Century, T-Paw.

Funny, Gulf of Tonkin Resolution signed by LBJ another democrat, Maybe the FDR executive order rounding up all American Citizens of Japanese decent, OR Woodrow Wilson's shooting of American Veterans protesting on Washington DC. MMMMM, Guess it is a tough call.

I almost forgot, JFK sending troops to Vietnam to make us forget JFK's war mongering in Cuba. The democrats have several "worst" bills but TPaw is right that O'Bama health care bill is one of the most flawed and misguided laws in modern history. Obamacare takes our health care system in the wrong direction, failing to reduce costs and improve quality. The law infringes on individuals' and states' rights by forcing individuals to purchase a good or service, which is why I joined a lawsuit calling the law unconstitutional.
