Why must the American people suffer
when even so many Democrats
don’t want Obamacare?

Washington Times, by Sen. Rand Paul

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 9/28/2013 12:15:47 AM

Earlier this week, in an effort led by Sen. Ted Cruz, some of my Republican colleagues and I took to the Senate floor with the intent of making Washington listen. The American people have made it abundantly clear that they do not want Obamacare. In fact, a majority of elected officials, the same officials that voted to implement this health care mandate, do not want it, either. Last summer, in a 5-4 decision authored by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., the Supreme Court wrongly concluded that Obamacare’s individual mandate could stand. As a consequence of the court’s ruling, starting

´´I find it absolutely despicable that Mr. Obama, his administration and the elected officials who shoved this mandate down the throat of Americans are now giving themselves waivers. The president is also giving his friends waivers. Mr. Obama’s behavior mirrors that of a captain jumping overboard, abandoning his own sinking ship.´´

I agree completely, Sen. Paul. It is despicable. We don´t get to use that word very often, but it certainly is apt in regard to those low-down no-good politicians. Keep fighting that evil growing in our government, please. And thank you.

I too find it despicable. I am sick and tired of the elite in congress passing laws that they do not apply to themselves. It is not just Obamacare, they have also exempted themselves from insider trading laws. They get rich while they are in congress.

All three branches of the US government are corrupt. When does the housecleaning start? And I don´t mean by voting, that process has been corrupted too. We are officially a third world country.

Why must we have Obamascare? Because of its name.

If it were named after Pelosi or Reid or Schumer it wouldn´t matter so much.

But a health care plan with the name of the first half white President must be inflicted upon us. Besides, Halloween is coming.

Think of it this way ~ what if the Nazis won WWII ~ they´d have imposed fascist methods on this country. The individual mandate would have required yout´ to don uniforms and dig ditches for the party elite so that they could install irrigation systems for their estate shrubbery.

The Speaker of the House would be this Italian woman with mafia roots and Fascist party leanings, and the only dissenter allowed would be so-called ´consumer advocates´ whose fathres were Falange party officers.

Cuba would be a vast, desolate wasteland........

The ONLY solution is to throw these bums out. That is not going to happen unless the apathetic get off their duffs and actually vote and get involved. We have the government we deserve because of the fools who either voted for the ONE or voted by not voting.

So many times a single vote makes the difference. A single senate vote from a New England state could have prevented the ADA ever coming to the Senate floor for a vote, or a single Supreme Court vote could made it all unconstitutional. So many other examples.

Next option? Encourage the lofos to boycott this mess and don´t sign up. They´re not going to contribute anyway and have better healthcare than those working for a living who can´t get health insurance. Overload the system with people needing healthcare (not insurance) and demand to be helped.

It´ll be the indigent living off the freebees who will clamber for a chair on the deck of this sinking ship.

I called my Senator and got a lovely little condescending note explaining why he, Senator Burr, knew that voting with Cruz and Lee was not the right way to go about this problem. He did say that he would vote to go along with the same healthcare mandate for Congress as the rest of us.....must not be much chance of that happening. It was nice to see these other Senators finally say no to obama. I am so tired of watching the wimpy go along to get along group who look at the problems from the point of view of the press. Like it´s the repubs. who want to shut down the government not obama for not negotiating. We did not start this country with that attitude. Wimpy will just not cut it any longer. Brave men and women who stand up to seemingly impossible odds is what started this country and the only hope we have of getting it back on the right track.

Obamacare is leading to the final cherries on the top of the Socialist agenda.

Unfortunately Socialism spells doom for the middle class. The American middle class that was the envy of the world in the 1950´s will vanish. Their wealth will be sapped to pay for it.

Politicians? They are convinced that we will learn to love this future given time. At least the next generation and newcomers will.

The title question is easily answered: because the far left dreams of a single-payer health care abomination and this was as close as they could get. They rammed it down our throats and now it has become the sole ´accomplishment´ of a failed presidency. They cling to it for comfort even though the American people would prefer to see it rest on the ash heap of history.

Because Washington DC, Congress and all that the federal establishment is ... is at war with the citizens of America.

Something truly, spectacularly evil is in charge and you .. YES YOU .. are what they strive to eradicate.

But can you imagine the firestorm that would erupt if congress brought back the draft and exempted their families from it? We should bring up that analogy when explaining to lo-fo´s why this is so wrong.

# 32 You are badly misinformed.
19 Republicans voted for cloture ( Rule 22 , in place since 1917 ),
the parliamentary procedure to bring an issue to a vote.
This was not a vote on policy , it was a
vote on a procedure.
Republicans are not allowed to cast
procedural votes, now ???
They´re called traitors for saying Let´s Vote On It ???
The most important facts :
Not a single Republican Senator ( 44 ) voted to strip out defunding from the House CR.
Not a single Democrat Senator ( 54 ) voted to
keep the defunding in the CR.
I notice you only have Republicans listed .
In order to keep defunding in the CR-it would have required 6 Democrat Senators.
How come the Heritage Foundation and Ted Cruz haven´t mentioned that salient fact ?
And then.. an additional 15 Democrat Senators for a total of 21 to override Obama´s veto.
It´s really bizarre that Ted Cruz and the Heritage Foundation have always focused
on the anti Obamacare Republicans and never a peep about the Democrat Senators actually
required to defund.

#34 Procedure is Policy!!!!!!!!!!! when you give the Democrats the ability to erase de-funding Obamacare from the bill. A procedural vote allowed the vote on policy. Thus, Richard Burr and other compromising con artists voted for Obamacare. There would be no vote on policy, if the procedure was approached and voted on correctly. I saw that dumb joke Corker on video....do you work for that dummy. The gig is up, the con is done Richard Burr and Corker....we have your number....you too McConnell.

The bottom line remains power over all the areas of our lives. The Constitution loses its credibility to govern us daily. I believe the GOP is well aware of this and want to be on the side that gets to rule the slaves, not be among them. We have lost our ability to be effective citizens in our Republic. We will be ruled over, taken over, stripped of assets and
made to beg for what we need. Am I being cynical? I don´t think so.

To address the question: Why must the American people suffer when even so many Democrats don’t want Obamacare?
Because Obamacare, or Obamadontcare as I call it, isn´t about improving health care in the United States. It is about further weakening the United States and breaking us financially. It is the nail in the coffin with Francis Fox Piven swinging the hammer while a dead Richard Cloward smiles from the grave. With about 80 members of Congress being members of the Communist party, some being very proud and vocal about of it, and who knows how many more lean that way it isn´t hard to figure out.

In internal government documents with potential repercussions for the 2016 presidential election, top officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development repeatedly cited former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for setting into motion a policy to waive restrictions on who could receive U.S. aid in Afghanistan, resulting in millions of dollars in U.S. funds going directly into the coffers of Afghan ministries known to be rife with corruption. References to Mrs. Clinton’s role in the policy first appeared in a November 2012 USAID action memo, which outlined how U.S. officials made a “strategic foreign-assistance

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs

Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

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

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

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.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

Gospel story of Jesus’ resurrection a

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I

It’s time for Western states to take control of federal lands within their borders, lawmakers and county commissioners from Western states said at Utah’s Capitol on Friday. More than 50 political leaders from nine states convened for the first time to talk about their joint goal: wresting control of oil-, timber -and mineral-rich lands away from the feds. "It’s simply time," said Rep. Ken Ivory, R-West Jordan, who organized the Legislative Summit on the Transfer for Public Lands along with Montana state Sen. Jennifer Fielder. "The urgency is now." Utah House Speaker Becky Lockhart, R-Provo, was flanked by a dozen participants, including

If expanding the guest list to include Michelle Obama at graduation for high school students in the Kansas capital city means fewer seats for friends and family, some students and their parents would prefer the first lady not attend. A furor over what the Topeka school district considers an honor has erupted after plans were announced for Obama to address a combined graduation ceremony for five area high schools next month an 8,000-seat arena. For some, it was the prospect of a tight limit on the number of seats allotted to each graduate. For others, it was the notion that Obama´s speech,

New York Times columnist David Brooks said Sunday that he believes President Obama’s foreign policy isn’t “tough enough” and that he has a “manhood problem” when it comes to dealing with leaders such as Russian President Vladimir Putin and Syrian President Bashar Assad. Mr. Brooks expanded on Sen. Bob Corker’s earlier comments on “Fox News Sunday” that Mr. Obama is “creating an air of permissiveness” with regards to Russia. (Snip) “And let’s face it, Obama, whether deservedly or not, does have a — I’ll say it crudely — but a manhood problem in the Middle East,” he continued.
