With the recent announcement of more than seven million sign-ups for Obamacare, the administration and its supporters have been running around shouting “Success! SUCCESS!!”, as if an enrollment figure means that the implementation of the law itself, with its myriad problems (for example) (1), will be just a matter of working “the bugs” out.

Nevertheless, seven million was the administration’s goal, and they met it. So, how does one explain this victory? How did they do it?

Senator Ted Cruz is ready with the answer:

obamacare broken window bastiat ted cruz

(Full-size version)

Apparently the good Senator is a student of Frederic Bastiat’s “Parable of the broken window.” Would that the rest of Congress were.

    The only issue I have with the above graphic that Cruz used and that you used is that the government would not break your window, they would send out the union members to break your window and then beat you up for protesting the broken window.

    Also the dude with a club needs a SEIU or UAW on his shirt

    Or he could be dressed as a skycap; you know, the baggage handler who will assist the commiecrats “getting the sh*t out of Dodge” once the elections are over?
