Who's Pulling the Trigger on Obamacare?

Obamacare rolls out!
One of my liberal friends says he feels sorry for his Republican friends because the party "...has been hijacked by the Tea Party and made to look ridiculous."  He says that the Republicans are holding a gun to the Democrats' heads and saying "Give me what I want or I'll pull the trigger." 

And, apparently, that's a bad thing to his progressive socialist way of thinking.

It looks to me like it's the Democrats holding the gun only they're saying, "Give me what I want. I've already pulled the trigger!"

The trouble is, that after the abysmal failure of the Obamacare rollout and the Gestapo tactics by government employees on orders from on high, the Democrats have alienated a lot of people:
  • People whose flights were needlessly canceled.
  • KIA soldiers' families who had to get their death benefits from a foundation rather than the US military.
  • People locked out of parks and fenced off from monuments that sit by public sidewalks.
  • Private business people forced to shutter their businesses because the government says their lease is null and void government workers don't get a paycheck.
  • Old people tossed out of their retirement homes because the rangers say it's unsafe to drive on a park road while the government is shut down even though it's being patrolled by more park rangers and cops than usual because they're afraid the old people mike sneak back to their homes.
  • Everybody who actually tried to sign up for Obamacare and got the blue error screen of death!
 I think the Dems must have used one of those "Wiley Coyote" cartoon guns with the "U" shaped barrel that always blasts you in the face when you shoot it.

Just sayin'
