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.

Haha! A very cold day in **ll when dims vote against obamster care......not gonna happen.

I luv Breitbarts website, but someone is getting way overly optimistic here...

This is too funny! HAHAHA!

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.

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.

Reply 12 - Posted by: planetgeo, 12/13/2012 1:24:48 AM     (No. 9062727)

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!

There has to be a catch to this. Maybe some liberals are figuring out Obamacare will cost THEM money.

#12, you´ve got it. The GOP should have made the most of that issue. Take about "fairness" when the people who voted to impose the law on us have exempted themselves from it.

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.

Spaceflight in the age of Obama:
Star Trek’s Galileo shuttlecraft unveiled

Posted By: Dreadnought- 7/31/2013 10:42:31 PM     Post Reply
It may not fully make up for President Obama’s gutting of America’s manned spaceflight program, but for now it will have to do. Star Trek’s Galileo, the fiberglass shuttlecraft featured on the “The Galileo Seven” episode of the classic ’60s sci-fi series, was officially unveiled Wednesday at Space Center Houston, the official museum/visitor center of NASA´s Johnson Space Center, where it will remain on permanent display. If nothing else, the Galileo development program proved far less costly than NASA’s $9 billion next-generation space program, Constellation, which fell victim to Mr. Obama’s budget ax in 2010.

President Obama, who extolled the value of middle-class construction jobs during nearly five years of recession and recovery, has changed his tune to borderline contempt for the blue-collar jobs needed to build the Keystone oil pipeline. In a speech in Chattanooga, Tenn., Mr. Obama actually chuckled derisively Tuesday when he mentioned that Republican lawmakers are promoting the pipeline project for the thousands of jobs it would create over two years. “They keep on talking about this — an oil pipeline coming down from Canada that’s estimated to create about 50 permanent jobs,”

Two New York Times reporters recently posited for President Obama this grim scenario: Low growth, high unemployment, and growing income inequality become "the new normal" in the nation he leads. "Do you worry," the journalists asked him, "that that could end up being your legacy simply because of the obstruction ... and the gridlock that doesn´t seem to end?" Obama´s reply was telling. "I think if I´m arguing for entirely different policies and Congress ends up pursuing policies that I think don´t make sense and we get a bad result," he said, "it´s hard to argue that´d be my legacy.

A military court Tuesday convicted Army Pfc. Bradley Manning of violating the Espionage Act for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified documents to WikiLeaks, a verdict that legal analysts say likely will have a chilling effect on others considering revealing government secrets. While Manning, 25, was acquitted of the most serious charge — aiding the enemy, which carried a penalty of life in prison without the possibility of parole — he still faces up to 136 years in prison when he is sentenced at Fort George G. Meade, Md. The sentencing hearing, which starts Wednesday

A Saudi Arabian activist said his government provided Egypt´s military with $1 billion to stage a coup against former president Mohammed Morsi and install interim leadership. Political activist Mujtahid bin Hareth bin Hammaam, who operates an active Twitter campaign aimed at exposing corruption in the Saudi government, said Gen. Abdel Fattah el-Sisi received the money on July 3, United Press International reported. The reason for the payoff, he alleged, was so Egypt’s transfer of power would flow smoothly. But now the Saudi government isn’t sure it spent its money wisely, he said.

Republican lawmakers blasted a proposal by President Obama on Tuesday to cut corporate taxes in exchange for more spending on job-training programs, calling it a revival of a failed plan that would raise taxes initially. “It’s just a further-left version of a widely panned plan he already proposed two years ago — this time, with extra goodies for tax-and-spend liberals,” said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican. “The tax hike it includes is going to dampen any boost businesses might otherwise get to help our economy.” Mr. Obama visited an Amazon.com distribution center in Chattanooga, Tenn.,

Writing at RealClearPolitics, Heather Wilhelm says that she’s moving from Chicago to Austin, Texas soon. Howdy and welcome! Her move has generated the usual liberal reaction — “Oh, good, because Austin is TOTALLY DIFFERENT from the rest of Texas.” Implying, or often outright stating, that the rest of Texas is a relic of the Neanderthal era with a strong dose of that old time religion that liberals fear and loathe so much.

The consensus response to President Obama’s Knox College speech on the economy is that the administration has been reduced to pushing a menu of stale and timid policies that, in any case, won’t be enacted. But what if the administration isn’t actually out of ideas? What if Obama’s boldest policy initiative is merely something he’d rather not discuss? And what if that initiative is being enacted right now? A year ago, I published Spreading the Wealth: How Obama Is Robbing the Suburbs to Pay for the Cities.

The FBI has told Congress it does not need to get a warrant to conduct surveillance with drones, in a letter laying out some of the top federal law enforcement agency’s policies for how it uses unmanned aerial vehicles. In a July 19 letter to Sen. Rand Paul, Stephen D. Kelly, assistant director for the FBI’s congressional liaison office, said the agency has used drones in 10 instances, including twice for “national security” cases and eight times for criminal cases. The FBI authorized the use of drones in three other criminal cases but didn’t deploy them.

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that

Anticipating that lawmakers will face resistance to the bill when they go home for the August recess, the letter marks the escalation of a campaign in which Republican leaders and donors are pressuring House Republicans to act on an immigration reform bill.

I never thought the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case deserved nearly the attention it got. But reasonable people can disagree about that. What strikes me as unconscionable, however, is the way the supposedly objective media have not only sensationalized a tragedy but at times appear to deliberately bend the facts to fit a desired story line. Maybe it started with the use of pictures of a younger Martin or with the sudden embrace of the term "white Hispanic" to describe Zimmerman in order to more easily paint him as a racist. NBC News was the most egregious offender
