GOP quietly backing
away from Obamacare

Politico, by Jake Sherman and Manu Raju

Original Article

Posted By:congaree53, 10/10/2013 8:35:26 AM

A fight over Obamacare? That’s so last week. With the government shutdown firmly in its second week, and the debt limit projected to be reached next Thursday, top House and Senate Republicans are publicly moving away from gutting the health care law — a practical move that could help resolve the stalemate and appear more reasonable in the eyes of frustrated voters. In a private meeting among Senate Republicans, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) expressed openness to a plan by Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) that includes a repeal of Obamacare’s medical device tax but nothing else related to the health care

Obamacare is the Trojan Horse of the Dems to destroy America from within.
The republicans cannot cave and IF their are any Patriotic Dems-time for them to come forward or be branded with the same traitorous bush as Obama and his cabal.

More and more we see what Pubbies are all about. Obamacare is a complete and utter failure as evidenced by its SNAFU´s. Pubbies have a golden opportunity to rid this country of this cancer and its future metastasis, but they won´t seize the moment. Americans would back de-funding with what has been revealed. But, Noooooo . . . .

Yes, OP, time for a third party.

I am not excusing bad behavior at all here by any means. But why should we expect republican members of Congress, who are only human, to not fall in line with all the goodies too.

This is why we need to hold their feet to the flame. Republicans at least, are still feeling the flames from the voters.

GOP, do not cave!!

An article posted yesterday, written by an IT guy, made the allegation that the government sign up site was not operational but only collecting data as people tried to sign up. The GOP needs to demand info re the sign up before even considering funding this mess. At the very least a one year delay of the individual mandate (to give citizens the same as has already been granted to business), is reasonable until they can prove this works.

Those who are pining for a third party, put some action where your words are sitting. There are many parties out there to choose from or, you can start your own. I´m not sure where any of that would productively take you, but if it satisfies, then do it. I will stay, however, and do what I can to improve what we have.

If the GOP cave when they are winning and when 2016 rolls around choose a dunderhead like Chris Christie or Jeb Bush republicans are finished.
I´m not even going to vote. Hillary will not be the next president it will be Elizabeth Warren a real communist in the Obama mold. We will have gone communist so this is our last chance to defeat the leftist communist so the republicans better not cave.

The problem is #6 that these newer Republicans look around at how many of the RINOs have had their Congressional seats for 20 plus years. They see that McCain, Boehner, Collins, Graham, Hatch, etc. have all sided with Democrats against conservatives over the years. They SEE that despite threats to the contrary, these RINOs are not voted out. Instead, they stay in D.C. growing their bank accounts and benefits. RINOs believe we will always vote the lesser of 2 evils and this is the problem. If we start kicking these long-timers out each election then we can get somewhere.

Yes, it is Politico, so it´s not to be trusted in the least. Evidence of this is how they still refer to it as a "healthcare law". Any person with more than 4 functioning brain cells knows full well that ObamaCare has little to nothing to do with health care.

Looks like there are still a lot of doubters who enjoy bashing Republicans more than looking at what is actually going on in D.C. As IF "stupido-politico" can be trusted to report what the GOP is "backing away from". Personally I will wait to hear what Speaker Boehner says before attending the ritual of the circular firing squad. What a disgrace this agitator-in-chief, along with his minions in the "msm" and demonrat party are!

And while there are those who are willing to stay where they are at and try "improve what they have" I am more than happy to move on. My question is, will "improving what we have" include aiding the traitorous Republicans as they work behind the scenes to legalize millions of illegal aliens? #10 has it right, there is only one party and they are both taking us to the same place, just one is doing faster than the other.

I´m not seeing it that much in action, though. It´s so easy for the msm to divide and conquer for their demigods in the Democrat party. They just write up a vague premise and people start howling.

Somebody took some old software originally written in COBOL and slapped a modern looking interface program on the front end. That´s the work of an afternoon ~ without beer ~ that´d taken two days with beer.

So, what happened to the rest of the $600 million supposedly spent on this?

While all of that is collapsing and nobody is signing up it´s really not likely at all that the Republican leadership is looking to cave in on their opposition to funding ObamaKKKare.

Now, regarding Politico ~ where´s the money guys? We know you got some of it. Look at the trash you´re trying to peddle as news. Nobody does that without some serious financial inducements.

When one has retired from the ranks of American domestic political consulting, as I have, you are not really allowed to just quit. You become emeritus, of counsel, senior status and God knows what. Basically your role becomes one of trying to talk active participating democratic consultants to not, as current politics would have it, “jump off the bridge.” There appears in both public and private to be more than usual pessimism and gloom about Democratic chances in 2014. Allow me to point out the following facts — yes, facts, not opinions. Last week’s Washington Post/ABC News poll found that fewer than

Washington (CNN) – President Barack Obama´s approval rating has edged up a bit since the end of last year, according to a new national poll. But a CNN/ORC International survey also indicates the number of Americans who hope that his policies will succeed has dropped 12 points since last year and a majority now predicts that his policies will fail. According to the survey, which was released Monday, 45% of the public gives Obama a thumbs-up on the job he´s doing as President. That´s up from 41% in November and December, when the President was at or near all-time lows

GOP ready to surrender

House Republicans are getting ready to surrender: There will be no serious fight over the debt limit. The most senior figures in the House Republican Conference are privately acknowledging that they will almost certainly have to pass what’s called a clean debt ceiling increase in the next few months, abandoning the central fight that has defined their three-year majority. The reason for the shift in dynamics in this fight is clear. Congress has raised the debt limit twice in a row without drastic policy concessions from President Barack Obama and Senate Democrats, essentially ceding ground to Democrats.

Less than a week before President Obama gives his State of the Union address, the president’s job approval rating is mixed: 46 percent approve, and about the same percentage, 47 percent, disapprove. Over the past year, his approval rating has mostly hovered in the mid 40s and has not hit the 50 percent mark since February of last year. His 46 percent approval is up four points from December (42 percent) and up from his all-time low of 37 percent in November. As the president begins his sixth year in office, his approval rating is slightly higher than that of

He ended one war and kept us out of any other,” is the tribute paid President Eisenhower. Ike ended the Korean conflict in 1953, refused to intervene to save the French at Dien Bien Phu in 1954, and, rather than back the British-French-Israeli invasion, ordered them all out of Egypt in 1956. Ending America longest wars may prove to be Barack Obama’s legacy. For, while ending wars without victory may not garner from the historians’ the accolade of “great” or “near great,” it is sometimes the duty of a president who has inherited a war the nation no longer wishes to fight.

A recent conversation with a veteran of GOP presidential campaigns raised this question: Which, if any, of the recent battleground states are likely to become more Republican by 2016? The consensus: very few. That reality highlights one problem Republicans face as they seek to regain the White House after six years under President Obama. Lots of factors affect elections: the quality of the candidates, the state of the economy, the effectiveness of the campaigns. But in a country whose demographics continue to change, Republicans will begin this campaign with one significant disadvantage. Over the past three decades, the political leanings of

Views of the tea party are at all-time lows in a new poll, as primary challenges to establishment Republicans continue to heat up Washington. Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010. Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent.

The most charitable thing you can say about the Republican Party is that it has an image problem. Even if you support its policies, no clear-eyed observer can deny that on any given day the GOP looks clueless, heartless, and gutless. Just take today. For all of President Obama´s problems and their correlation to the future of the Democratic Party (see: lack of credibility and competence), it takes just four stories to see how much worse things are for the GOP. "Invisible Child: Dasani´s Homeless Life" is a wrenching New York Times portrait of girl stuck in poverty in the shadow of Manhattan's opulence. More than that, it's the story

In a new interview with ABC, President Obama concedes that the disastrous rollout of Obamacare has taken a toll on his approval ratings. But he believes the public´s opinion of his work will rise again. "I´ve gone up and down pretty much consistently throughout," Obama said. "But the good thing about when you´re down is that usually you got nowhere to go but up." That certainly sounds comforting for the president and his supporters. But is it true? Actually, there´s no reason Obama´s approval ratings might not continue to slide. In fact, for more than a year, Obama´s ratings have

The Reuter/Ipsos survey shows that 44 percent of Americans are in favor of the six-month interim agreement reached in Geneva on Saturday, while 22 percent are opposed to it. Under the temporary agreement, Iran will receive $7 billion in sanctions relief over six months in exchange for accepting restrictions on its nuclear development program. But although the agreement has been touted by the administration as a diplomatic breakthrough, critics have said it could pave the way for Iranian nuclear

On Tuesday, I mocked the Hurricane Katrina/Obamacare comparisons. Hurricane Katrina, after all, killed more than 1,800 people. Obamacare´s Web site isn´t working well yet. Ron Fournier, among others, defends the comparison, arguing that of course the crises themselves aren´t similar. The analogy is really about "the ways that Bush and Obama handled their crises, and [how] those actions changed the public´s view of their presidencies." But that´s precisely the point: The political fallout is driven by the nature of the crises. Or, to put it more starkly, reality drives politics — politics doesn´t drive reality.

WASHINGTON — Despite the disastrous rollout of the federal government´s healthcare website, enrollment is surging in many states as tens of thousands of consumers sign up for insurance plans made available by President Obama´s health law. A number of states that use their own systems, including California, are on track to hit enrollment targets for 2014 because of a sharp increase in November, according to state officials. "What we are seeing is incredible momentum," said Peter Lee, director of Covered California, the nation´s largest state insurance marketplace, which accounted for a third of all enrollments nationally in October.

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.

It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes.

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

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling.
