Obama Surrenders to Cruz

Obama unilaterally decides to justify the shutdown.  With this delay, he justifies all of it.  The Shutdown, the congressional investigations, all of it.

This is exactly what Cruz was arguing for, except that this is too late.  When Cruz was doing it, people weren’t getting screwed over for having complied with the “old” law, it wasn’t too late for people to get out of “new” bad plans, and it hadn’t done likely permanent damage to our healthcare system.

Barack Obama just did what Cruz always knew we had to — he just managed to fuck it up and make it useless in the process.

    I actually expected him to wait longer and then repeal the whole thing at once while declaring victory. I didn’t expect him to take the most demeaning, slow-motion loss.
