Democrats: You fought for it, you voted for it, you defended it, now you own it.

Obamacare, which was rammed though Congress even though the majority of citizens opposed it and not a single Republican voted for it, is now being implemented.

I use the the word "implementation" loosely because this goat rodeo is anything but a smooth transition into medical collectivism.

The president has given waivers and exemptions to his supporters and Congress, postponed employer mandates until after the 2014 elections and generally bastardized the whole process to ensure his "signature achievement" is not derailed.

Despite continuing conservative opposition, the Democrats and their enablers in the liberal media are hell-bent on going forward.

At this point I say let it go. The results will be squarely on their shoulders. Finally, this time they won't be able to blame Bush, racism, global warming or greedy capitalists for their own failed policy.
