Wolf: Buck Up and Stop Obamacare

Dr. Milton Wolf has a new OpEd in the January 8, 2011 Washington Times entitled "Buck up and stop Obamacare".

In it, he has a very simple message for the GOP:
Republicans won this year's historic landslide election primarily by virtue of not being Democrats. The year of the Tea Party was 2010, and the GOP is the beneficiary - for now. It's not often that fate - or, in this case, the Tea Party - grants you a second chance for a rendezvous with history. Now is the time to earn it.

...A word of caution here: America is not clamoring for Obamacare Lite. Congressional Republicans should not fall for the Democrats' trap of tinkering around the edges of Obamacare because doing so accepts the underlying fundamental flaw that the government takeover of the health care system is acceptable. After all, even Mr. Obama wants to fiddle around with removing unpopular provisions, such as the 1099 rule that forces ordinary Americans to become tax snitches for the state. Don't fall for it. Make them lie in the bed they made.

If the GOP doesn't listen to the Tea Party voters who put them into power in the House, they'll quickly learn the meaning of Dr. Wolf's warning phrase, "46-12-4".
