What A Difference A Couple Of Years Makes

Via Memeorandum:

Breitbart.TV has uncovered a tape shot in 2007 when candidate Obama was singing a different tune on healthcare then he is now. Oh, he was in favor of a government take over of healthcare back then too, but unlike now, he admitted that a government run system was going to expensive and that it would require higher taxes.

What has changed in the last two years? Obama backed in to healthcare from the wrong direction. After stimulus, omnibus and cap and trade, people are in no mood for another government spending spree. Had he started with healthcare people still would not be happy but the outpouring would not be what we are seeing now. Honesty is the policy is no longer an option for the president and instead he is trying the "spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down" approach. The president doesn't seem to understand that all the sugar-coating in the world won't take the bitter taste out of the ObamaCare pill.
