Senate Democrats Urge
Undoing of ObamaCare

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Dr. Susan Berry

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/12/2012 11:16:45 PM

Many powerful Democrats, even some of the most liberal among them, are supporting what amounts to a dismantling of President Obama’s signature health care law. Using “Republican” language to make their case, these Democrats are attempting to repeal some of the funding mechanisms as well as the cost-containment measures that were purportedly inherent in the law. With some of their most influential constituent groups facing onerous tax increases that are slated to help fund the law’s mandates and regulations, Senators like Al Franken (D-MN), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Charles Schumer

Take really bad law and apply some bandaids, duct tape, bailing wire, spit, glue and, no doubt, a zillion more bureaucrats to square things up. Buckle up, it´s gonna be a bumpy future.

If these geniuses are involved in effecting any changes, the worst legislation in history will get even more complex, more intractable, less efficient, less fair, less effective, and more costly than it is today.

Where were these idiots when the law was passed if it is so bad? Following orders and that´s all.

I guess the people responsible for passing this bill (all democrats in the Senate) finally read what´s in it. Hopefully this will catch on and the other dims will recognize the err of their way. Or are they already thinking 2014.

Each party has the other by the short ones...the GOP is losing the "fiscal cliff" issue no matter what...and the Dems hammer the other 98% with taxes and cost hikes to cover Obama´s "Affordable Care Act." Frankly, both going over the cliff works for me.

S-o-o-o, how about any senator who voted for this [pre-deleted] dog´s breakfast of a "law" and is already pushing to hack chunks off it and make major changes like these gets assessed for costs and sent to jail for malfeasance?

Oh, and how did Breitbart manage to skip over the critical tort-reform the bill provides? Oh, that´s right! There are none!

Let the law go on, just as "written" by the pizza- and beer-swilling gaggles of 19-year-old pages that were really responsible for it. No one, not even Pelosi, knew what was in it when it was passed. Now we do, and we know that elderly people with chronic, life-threatening conditions are going to die. Well, I´m one of them; I´ve set my affairs in order and I want to go. I know where I´m going, and I´m looking forward to it.

Sham senators who knowingly voted for a sham law endorsed by a sham president, justifying their sham vote with a sham "concern" for a sham "fairness".

Their party affiliation is enough evidence to judge them incapable of thinking one single clear thought. That they would consider undoing Obamacare is a sham.

To assure the repeal of Obamacare simply require that all those Congressmen who voted for it must use it as their sole health care coverage.

I just read about this on another news site and it sounded like the dems were concerned about the tax on medical devices. It didn´t mention undoing the whole Obamacare. I certainly wish they would throw the whole thing in the garbage. No one mentioned the 3.5% tax on the sale of your home after January 1 or other goodies they threw in. What a nightmare.

Zippycare will be in full force in the next Senatorial election in 2014. The chit will hit the fan when everyone feels what it means.

Too many will wake up one day, finding that they are working 2 jobs part time, and have to report there health insurance status to the IRS, and will start to realize the pain of ObamaCare taxes.

Just like everything else, Obozo will pick & choose who he wants to exempt. It´s just God Obama´s way! Oh... BTW, AARP´s UHC, who was a strong supporter of ObieCare, has now reduced reimbursement rates to docs & hospitals so much, they´ve been dropped by several Tampa hospitals & affiliated docs.

Again, I expect to see retired gov´t workers HC bills. as well as MediCaid, to be paid at a higher rate than regular folks like me. It´s just Obozo´s way!

The dims are indeed dim. I´ve got plants in my yard smarter than them. The rocks are smarter than Franken.

Nothing in this article wasn´t known YEARS ago. Smart people pointed out all these points and their consequences well before this bill was law.

But, no, nothing will change this. Our health system and our economy will crater and unemployment will be greater than 50% before any single dim will admit that this was, indeed, the mistake the GOP and every person with a brain said it was.

This will make the depression look like a vacation at Club Med.

17 Democrat Senators are asking for a waiver or exemption for certain of their constitutants. All others can bear the burden. Is this the "fairness" the Democrats are always talking about?

But the insurance companies and the AARP liked ObamaCare... Actually, they´re all insurance companies. He needed there help to bring this all off so deals were cut. Another fine hour for Obama style crony capitalism. We really do need to get a handle on the behind closed door wheeling and dealing Obama and the Donks had with the various special interests.
Deals were cut, arms were twisted... What were they?

And I still will never understand the quiet, even the complacency of the doctors on this monstrous coup of our medical care. Imagine the outcry from lawyers if Obama tried to make huge changes to the legal biz and the lawyer-client relationship.

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Three people were shot and killed Sunday afternoon in suburban Kansas City, and a spokeswoman for a local hospital said a 15-year-old boy is in critical condition. Overland Park city spokesman Sean Reilly says two people died at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City campus and one was killed at Village Shalom, which is a retirement community that is several blocks away from the center. Overland Park Fire Department spokesman Jason Rhodes said Sunday afternoon that one person of interest is in custody. The Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City in Overland Park

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
