Stupid Is As Stupid Does

The following is from a guest editorial in the Wall Street Journal. It was written by a person named Burke Beu. He is "a nonprofit professional and former hospital insurance coordinator" who, for reasons that will become apparent, is currently working as a counselor at a social-services agency.
I grew up in a Democratic family. I have been a registered Democrat since age 18, a Democratic candidate for statewide office in Colorado and a party precinct captain in that caucus state. I’ve volunteered for numerous Democratic candidates and contributed to party causes and campaigns...

I voted for Barack Obama in 2008, then lost my job in the Great Recession. I was lucky; my brother lost his job and his house. I survived on part-time jobs while paying out-of-pocket for my health insurance.

I voted for President Obama again in 2012, then received a cancellation notice for my health insurance. This was due to ObamaCare, the so-called Affordable Care Act. However, I couldn’t afford anything else.
This is where a reasonable person would figure out that voting for obama, and by extension democrats, isn't working. But in true knee-jerk fashion, our intrepid liberal doubles down on his party's failed policies.
We Democrats need to get over ourselves, start anew on a national health-care policy, and return to our progressive principles...
There are none so blind as those who will not see.
