    My goal is to have this thread be a permanent on-going resource where people can post examples of liberals making promises, passing legislation, or taking actions that are based on good intentions without consideration of whether or not the legislation/action/promise actually works. You see, liberals don't really care if something works, if it actually does what they want it to do, they simply care if they have good intentions. Never mind anything else. Their heart was in the right place and if their idea blows up in their face, it doesn't matter because they had good intentions.

    Example number one is The Affordable Care Act, or ObamaCare.

    Democrats sold this as a panacea for all the problems in the U.S. health insurance system. We know about the problems with the federal government insurance exchange websites, and we know about Obama lying about "if you like your current health insurance plan, you'll be able to keep it." I'm sure there will be other problems facing the implementation of this horrid piece of legislation.

    ObamaCare is exhibit A in the logbook of failed programs that were sold with good intentions.

    Exhibit A is special because the President himself admitted yesterday that he had good intentions with the law, which is an abysmal failure. So we have the President admitting there are problems with his good intention. Here he is speaking in an interview on NBC News:

    "My intention is to lift up and make sure the insurance that people buy is effective."

    "What we intended to do, which is to make sure that everybody is moving into better plans because they want 'em, as opposed to because they're forced into it."

    "I want everybody out there to know that, you know, my entire intention here is to make sure that-- people have the security of affordable health care."

    The left, once just as opposed to government stimulus and banker bailouts as the right, is now unwittingly throwing its support behind infinite stimulus in order to cement the continued existence of precious Federal handouts. The issue of Obamacare has utterly blinded liberals to fiscal responsibility. Universal healthcare, perhaps the ultimate Federal handout, is a prize too titillating for them to ignore. Democrats will now go to incredible lengths to defend the Obama White House regardless of past crimes.

    They are willing to ignore his offenses against the 4th Amendment and personal privacy. They are willing to look past his offenses against the 1st Amendment, including the Constitutional right to trial by jury for all Americans, and Obama’s secret war against the free speech of whistle-blowers. They are willing to shrug off his endless warmongering in the Mideast, his attempts to foment new war in Syria and Iran, and his support for predator drone strikes in sovereign nations causing severe civilian collateral damage. They are willing to forget Snowden, mass surveillance and executive assassination lists — all for Obamacare.

    And the saddest thing of all? It is likely that Obamacare was never meant to be successful in the first place.

    Does anyone really believe that the White House, with billions of dollars at its disposal, could not get a website off the ground if it really wanted to? Does anyone really believe that Obama would launch the crowning jewel of his Presidency without making certain that it was fully operational, unless this was part of a greater scheme? And how about his promise that pre-existing health care plans would not be destroyed by Obamacare mandates? Over 900,000 people in the state of California alone are about to lose their health care insurance due to the Affordable Healthcare Act. Why would Obama go back on such a vital pledge unless he WANTED to piss off constituents?
