OK, that’s an adequate enough metaphor. But then he said this:
Think about it like a big snowstorm, and you’re trying to drive a car uphill. The most important thing is to keep momentum and keep it out of the ditch.
No, the most important thing is to ask yourself, Should I be driving this car uphill? – Because it’s rare that the answer is YES! Usually it’s No, but you don’t want to admit that you made a poor life choice earlier and so now you want to bull through somehow.
…And so it is with Obamacare. If the administration had more – or any – moral courage it’d stop trying to slam the wall and instead disengage, fall back, and try to figure out how to make something out of this unholy mess work right. Naturally, the administration is instead going to keep driving up the snowy road; and if you think that they can manage that trick… well. I gotta ask: why do you think that? They haven’t been competent at anything else involving Obamacare, to date…
