Don't blame Obamacare criticism on racism

Now that some aspects of Obamacare are becoming reality, prior supporters and even participants in its creation are expressing doubts about its ability to deliver services as promised.

As current friends of the president advise, "We can't let a perfectly good crisis go to waste," and I suggest we take this opportunity to look back to learn from mistakes made. Of the several to choose from as a result of Obamacare, one that may be relevant as the next election cycle nears is the claims by many that anyone critical of the president and his plans for a revised health care system is a racist.

This leads any person capable of critical thinking to draw one of two possible conclusions: either racists are more perceptive than those initially supporting Obamacare, or those making the claims of racism drank too much of the Kool-Aid and are not capable or worthy of serving as an elected official.
