Debbie Wasserman Schultz:
Fix Obamacare before
people abandon it

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:BaseballFan, 9/25/2013 2:00:30 PM

One of President Obama’s strongest health care advocates in Congress, Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, is advocating for changes to Obamacare, counseling Democrats that “we must not treat every minute provision in the law as sacred.” In a move that might surprise many in her party, Wasserman Schultz, who is also the head of the Democratic National Committee, said the Obamacare supporters currently fighting GOP demands to defund the health care act “should be open to suggestions for improving the law.” (Snip) Wasserman Schultz, a breast cancer survivor, has been one of the most passionate defenders of Obamacare and in

Comments:
Fix Obamacare? Why would we need to do that, Debbie? Of course, "fixing" it doesn´t leave her without bashing those E-e-e-vil Republicans. Debbie Hackerman-Schultz.

´´...And ALL he king´s men, couldn´t put Humpty together again!´´

Vote for cloture and thus, let the House of Representatives defund 0bamacare. Thank you, Sen. Cruz for courageously exposing the attempted deceptions regarding 0bamacare in Harry Reid´s dem Senate!

GO CRUZ, LEE, ROBERTS, RUBIO and all Senators who are listening to the American people and oppose 0bamacare!

The Sun rose in the East as Debbie stepped out of the shower slowly realizing that under ObamaKKKare her cancer would not have been treated.

Too expensive; no oncologists in her Barraca, #39, in the Southeastern Quadrant of the North American people´s republic ~ and beside, she didn´t have the Gold Band healthcare plan authorized only for those without the BRAC1 and BRAC2 gene complex.

Her application to the review committee had been rejected just yesterday.

Yes, Debbie, death will happen ~

Debbie slowly dries off on the fluffy towel given her by her children on her last ~ fur shur the last ~ birthday. Today she would try that Japanese thing ~ a bowl, this towel, a trip to the kitchen for one of the larger knives......

She´d be the last person to give in to the Hemlock Society ~..... no poison for her. Just guts and raw determination.

Debbie

Democrats OWN the mess called ObamaCare.

Democrats REFUSED to listen to Republican suggestions that would have avoided the train wreck THEY created.

What have YOU done to fix the monstrosity? Have you introduced a bill to fix even ONE of the MANY flaws?

All you do, Debbie, is flap your gums. America needs ACTIONS to fix the mess made by Democrats like YOU.

I don´t think anyone knows how this is supposed to work. While sitting in the dentist´s waiting room I overheard some women discussing the subsidies that will help them pay for their monthly premiums. Each woman mentioned being on hers or her husband´s plan, they´re not switching to an obamacare exchange, but they were certain that would be getting a subsidy to help pay premiums thanks to obamacare.

Before this bill passed, she held town hall meetings and lied about the bill. And if her constituents had followed the news instead of looking for the D next to her name, they would have voted her out of office.

Get real. Wasserman is not smart enough to think of this on her own. The WH knows this law is a train wreck, so they are using DWS as a proxy to advocate for change.

I would expect Obama to come forward soon - maybe - to also call for a bit of change regarding ACA. However, he`ll demand something in return from the GOP, as politics is never far from his nightstand.

The Dems are starting to crumble. Now if only the Republicans in the Senate will recognize the opportunity and start supporting Ted Cruz. We can win this thing. Call your Senator. Tell him to not only vote with Senator Cruz, but to publicly endorse his strategy. Do it with speeches, press releases, etc.

The momentum is on our side. Obamacare is increasingly unpopular even amoung the Democrat base. Obama himself has been greatly weakened and ready to be taken down.

Hillary Clinton was the planned keynote speaker at the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy in San Diego on April 11 - but she´s cancelled her visit in the midst of planned protests from San Diego locals and military families. Protestors organized by "The Difference Matters" do not want the former U.S. Secretary of State to come because of Clinton´s role in the Benghazi scandal. "She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don´t want her here," said Jan Iverson, a local mother and protestor. (Snip) Clinton´s office says she changed plans because of

DENVER – Denver Public Schools administrators believe they are the first school district in the nation to actively seek out people who were initially brought to the United States illegally to now teach in the classroom. "We look forward to increasing the number of great teachers who are in our classrooms and who are also role models for children who have similar cultural backgrounds and life experiences," Tom Boasberg, superintendent of Denver Public Schools, said. (Snip) But, Denver has a significant population of students who are undocumented, and Boasberg believes this effort will help serve those families.

U.S. Sen. Angus King, an independent from Maine, said he’s considering caucusing with Republicans if they win a majority of seats in the Senate during the midterm elections. Shortly after he voted with Republicans on Wednesday against the Paycheck Fairness Act, a piece of legislation that Democrats have prioritized ahead of the November elections, King was asked whether he might align with Republicans. Since he was elected in 2012, the two-term Maine governor has caucused with Democrats and voted with them on most issues. “I’ll make my decision at the time based on what I think is best for Maine,”

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

The U.S. trade deficit climbed to the highest level in five months in February as demand for American exports fell while imports increased slightly. The deficit increased to $42.3 billion, which was 7.7 percent above the January imbalance of $39.3 billion, the Commerce Department reported Thursday. (Snip) The administration is negotiating one trade agreement with Japan and 10 other Pacific nations. The other agreement would be a trans-Atlantic deal with the 28-nation European Union. The deals would lower trade barriers and are seen by supporters as a good way to boost U.S. export sales. But critics, including many labor unions,

NEW YORK- CBS News says an editor made an "audio error" in dubbing the sound of a loud traditional car engine over footage of the much quieter Tesla electric car in a story that aired Sunday. Spokesman Kevin Tedesco said Tuesday that the loud car audio has been edited out of the online version of the story on Tesla founder Elon Musk. Anchor Scott Pelley reported the story, and CBS said he wasn´t aware of the added audio ahead of time. The revving sound, as opposed to the much quieter windlike noise of a Tesla, was noticed by the auto enthusiast website

AMMAN- U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry broke from a visit to Italy on Wednesday to try to salvage Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, even as Arab leaders declared they would never meet Israel´s core demand to be recognized as a Jewish state. Kerry flew to Jordan to ask Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to commit to extending the negotiations, just days before Israel is supposed to release a final group of Palestinian prisoners as a confidence-building gesture. Before it releases the prisoners, Israel wants to be assured Abbas won´t abandon the U.S.-brokered talks, which resumed last July after a three-year break. Having initially

As further proof the NFL never is far from the headlines, owners could make plenty of news this week at their spring meetings. They will consider 13 playing rules proposals and seven bylaws. They will discuss expanding the playoff field from 12 to 14 teams, although a vote on such a move is uncertain. Some changes would seem to be slam dunks: extending the height of the goal posts 5 feet to help determine if kicks are good; eliminating overtime in preseason games; placing fixed TV cameras on the goal lines, end lines and sidelines to help with replay reviews.

Prices are rising for a range of food staples, from meat and pork to fruits and vegetables, squeezing consumers still struggling with modest wage gains. Food prices rose 0.4% in February, the most since September 2011, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said Tuesday. Beef and veal shoppers were socked with some of the biggest increases, as prices jumped 4% from January. Overall inflation remained tame, as falling gasoline and other energy costs offset the food price increases. The consumer price index ticked up just 0.1% from January and 1.1% in the past year.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev.

Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of
