Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz: Obamacare delay is sign of president’s commitment or something

The report tonight by Bloomberg that the Obamacare employer mandate might be delayed until 2015 must have caught the president’s supporters by surprise too — how else is there to explain Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’ tweet arguing that the delay is somehow a sign that President Obama (or @BarackObama, which is an independent nonprofit with no connection to the president, remember) is “in it for the long haul”?

By the time the Sunday shows roll around, a less desperate set of talking points will have gone out, but for now we’ll have to settle with the reassuring promise/threat, “You can’t stop it.” Really? That just makes it sound even more like a train wreck.

  • Riley Secrist

    I think she deleted it.

  • crosspatch

    Obama doesn’t seem quite as committed as he should be … if you know what I mean.

    • Elaine

      By “committed” she means obstinate!

  • V the K

    Are Wasserman-Schutlz’s parents out of jail yet?

    • TocksNedlog

      Bad form. Repeating debunked urban myths is the modus operandi of the left. We must be above all that.

      • Jim Denney

        Speaking of rumors, I heard Debbies parents executed a murder – suicide pact after watching her perform as a trained monkey /serial liar.

        Their final act, one of patriotic atonement….

        • TocksNedlog

          Now >THAT< I believe!

      • Elaine

        They don’t do that, they actually make up the “urban myth.”

  • V the K

    So, Obama won’t even implement his own law… but we are supposed to trust him to implement more border security?

    • Clete Torres

      Don’t worry, he has our best interests at heart…

      (yes, that was sarcasm)

  • CDUB

    Thanks Deb-ster. We know about the long haul to fundamentally implement/transform the country with an already passed bill that has less support everyday.

    Looking forward to the looks on faces next year, when all those who think it’s free, have to pay a fine etc., and all those pesky rules……

    • Frank Drebin

      43% of the “most directly affected” have no clue…

      • CDUB

        Thanks, great link and get out the popcorn….. It will be amazing to watch. ‘I told you so’ and a smirk is all I will have to say. Sadly, we makers will have to work harder to pay for the dumbfounded takers….

  • Stephen L. Hall

    They only care about the parts that make them money, or cost their enemies money which to them amounts to the same thing.

  • HARP2

    Think of those poor liberal kiddies going without healthcare for another year, just so dems can try to get elected.

    But don`t worry libs…….they care about you….they really do.

  • Garth Haycock

    Commitment to what? Political expediency?

    Dear Leader did this because he thinks the American public is stupid enough to believe he cares about them and is delaying this until there is more economic stability. The truth is that he wants to try to stop the Dems from getting their backsides handed to them in ’14.

    • ObamaFail

      Which means the Democrats want Obamacare to do as much damage as possible, but don’t want to hurt themselves politically.

      • Clete Torres

        That’s the absolute answer, in a nutshell.

    • sickofitall1096

      If they are waiting for more economic stability then they will be waiting a looooong time with this administration in charge. They’d be better of waiting until Nancy Pelosi can give a coherent answer…wait, never mind. There’s a better chance of monkeys flying out of my butt.

  • Buffalobob

    Poor little Debbie, she looks for reality in Disney world.

    • Jeremy

      She lives in her own bubble word.

  • yahneverknow

    Delay is only so the real pain doesn’t hit until after the mid-terms.
    Pansy-ass democrats can’t survive it if it hits before then.

  • Guest

    Poor Debbie. Can you imagine how cold and lonely her tiny brain must be in that vast, empty space?

  • TocksNedlog

    Methinks that Horseface is betting on the wrong gelding.

  • ObamaFail

    Wasserman saying “you can’t stop it” in her # shows that the Democrats want to hurt Americans. They get off on the idea. They know how bad Obamacare is going to be to businesses and to Americans, and they love the idea of what that means. But, they finally realized that the damage it will do could demolish their chances of winning 2014. But, there is still over a years worth of damage to the economy and possibly more scandals to be leaked. The Dems might not be out of the woods yet. Especially if job creation stays the pathetic levels it’s at now.

    • $1692758

      But Dem supporters do not read or pay attention to any of this. It’s hopeless.

  • Jeremy

    She is a well known Obama Zombie and a POS Liar. I remember this.

  • RedSoloCup

    Poor Debbie, it must hurt to be a stupid loser.

  • stuckinIL4now

    yeah, it’s a sign of Obamuh’s commitment to screwing America

  • TXKracker

    It is kinda like The Messiah Obama’s “Shovel Ready Jobs” being not so ready.
    Everything he touches turns to pure shit, it is be cause he was not qualified or ready to be a US Presidents secretary must less the President. Other than just be a celebrity or Cadillac Used Cars Sales Manager, he is what over his head. He is a pathetic joke.

  • IceColdTroll

    What traitors stand against our Dear Leader’s final solution to the health care problem???

  • MarcusFenix

    Slowing down a train wreck so we all can watch at our leisure…how nice of liberals to do that for us!

  • forgetyoutooo

    Of course. That’s why they announced it while Obama is in Africa and the usual liberal hags are speaking for him.

  • Conservagrl

    Debbie needs to realize that unlike her constituents we don’t have stupid written on our foreheads, you may be able to sell that lie to the low information voter, but not to the rest of the Country. It was done to take heat off the Democrats in the 2014 mid-term elections!

  • Michele Pullara Allen

    They are delaying this part of Obamacare so that the implementaion won’t effect the 2014 elections. They are trying to put distance between this unpopular part of obamacare and the Democrats that will be running. There is ALWAYS a self-serving reason for everything they do.

  • descolada9

    With people like her on the Dems side, how do the Repubs keep getting their backsides handed to them???

    By the way, folks, remember that the implementation will now take place AFTER the 2014 elections. Just goes to prove once again what the Obama Admin will do to ensure their votes.

    • nc

      I keep asking myself the same question. This is the Gang That Can’t Shoot Straight, but they hit the bullseye every time.

      That’s why just a simple impeachment or changing the players at the top is not going to fix what’s really wrong. There’s a big picture problem here.

  • Guest

    The employer mandate will hurt the economy which is why they’re pushing it up a year so it doesn’t negatively affect the 2014 mid term elections for democrats.

  • Jack Deth

    The sunsets must be spectacular in her own little deluded world.

  • EastValleyConservative

    Have to love the part: #youcantstopit I’ll be glad when she is kicked off her little toy throne. Her “little princess” tiara is really squeezing that head of hers these days.

  • tops116

    At what point did “commitment” become synonymous with “procrastination”?

    “Obamacare: it’s so awesome, we’re delaying one component of the bill until after the midterms, but still sticking it to people with the individual mandate. …Wait, what?”

  • Suzyqpie

    DWShultz said with global warming there is a good possibility that her FL congressional district will be under water…..I’m thinking…I’m thinking…

    • OLLPOH ~ America


  • Kaya Hund

    Don’t you just know that Ms. Schultz was the tattle tale, teacher’s pet who sat in the front of the classroom to curry the favor of the teacher?

    • nc

      What an insult to teacher’s pets!

  • OLLPOH ~ America

    Sgt. Shultz we assign you to the camp of oblivious on your heil to your fuhrer.

  • chetnapier

    We have to wreck the train to see whats on the train

  • Cyrena

    Wow I am dizzy from all the spinning.

  • Carolyn Palacios

    This would a be a terrific campaign issue. The Democrats say that even though you hate Obamacare, you can’t stop it. Yes we can.

  • allouchsit

    I agree that this is a sign of the president’s commitment. Or should I say a sign that he ought to be committed. Now.

  • Chip

    So, will all those people who had their hours cut get them back until 2015?

  • jb

    Dear Twitchy staff: you have filed this thread under “Politics”. Shouldn’t it be filed, as it is Debbie Wasserman-Nuts, under Entertainment>Comedy?

  • jb

    Why wait until Dec. 2014 for such a well-thought out law? July 2014 seems a much better time.

  • gekkobear

    Two things.
    1) The President can choose what laws are real by deciding laws he doesn’t like aren’t enforced.
    2) This is a rule that can be applied in the future and liberals will totally accept that the President has the power to nullify or delay any law at any time with no checks, balances, or oversight required.

    That’s the new rule, right? I just want this clarified now…

    • ElmiraFudd

      And we are supposed to trust the Senate amnesty bill?

      • Jay Stevens

        Yes. Remember, they have our welfare in mind. They will do only what is best for us.

        Damn. I cannot even type that with a straight face.

    • Jay Stevens

      “1) The President can choose what laws are real by deciding laws he doesn’t like aren’t enforced.”
      Even , or rather especially, his own.

  • The Gimlet Eye™

    Another ‘mind numbingly stupid’ Democrat. She recently said her district will soon be underwater. Not soon enough.

    They passed it, found out what’s in it, and are scrambling like cockroaches…

    Wait. My statement above was insensitive. I apologize to any cockroaches that I may have offended.

  • David

    Darn it. I misinterpreted the headline about Obama’s commitment. I thought he was being institutionalized for his delusions.

  • David

    How in the hell can Obama delay a law? I’m still stumped about that. I’d ask Debbie that, but I’m sure she doesn’t know either.

  • Guest

    Wassermann-Schitz implying the delay of Obamacare was deliberately planned,
    as a cunning stratagem by the “genius” occupying the White House…
    Goebbels was such an amateur by comparison.
