Speaking last week in Keota, Iowa, Hillary declared:
"When you - When you - Something is not broke, don’t break it. Right?
And this school district and these schools throughout Iowa are doing a better-than-average job. Now, I wouldn’t keep any school open that wasn’t doing a better-than-average job."
Of course, everyone seized upon the fact that Hillary was calling for the closure of half of Iowa's schools, but what about, "Something is not broke, don’t break it"? I can only understand this to mean that Hillary was berating President Obama for allowing America's debt to rise to an unsustainable $18.8 trillion, or more than $157,000 per taxpayer.
A bit like Hans Christian Andersen's "The Emperor's New Clothes." When does the world wake up to the fact that America is indeed broke and requires "fixing"? And this begins with Obamacare. As the Chicago Tribune observed on Christmas:
"[T]he next president and Congress have no choice but to fix Obamacare, a law now known for rocketing premiums, narrowing networks of coverage, flummoxed consumers and insolvent insurers."
