Politico: Dems Prep
to Trash ObamaCare

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Mike Flynn

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/26/2013 9:51:57 PM

It is no secret that the Democrat party is hemorrhaging support in the wake of the disastrous ObamaCare rollout. As the Administration warns that the website will not be fully operational at the end of November, nervous Democrats are expected to try to separate themselves from Obama and his flawed health program. Politico´s Mike Allen was on MSNBC this week, saying that they are "hearing" that Democrats will be very aggressive against the program in Congressional oversight hearings next week. If Politico is "hearing" something, it means Democrats are trying to leak the information to the public ahead of the

It´s going to be really tough for most of these Democrats to distance themselves from the debacle that they voted for and continually lied about to their constituents. They will attempt to look courageous, but will instead be seen as either liars or dupes or both.

Election smokescreen. They all still back Obamacare 100%.

They just want you to believe otherwise so you will re-elect them to unleash the next wave of destruction.

Republicans should have taken full advantage of the fix the Democrats are in - as they are really sweating it. Boehner should have swallowed his pride, sought Cruz´ help and counsel to help unite House Pubbies and brought a bill to REPEAL to the floor. This would put any Democrat up for reelection in a real tight box without escape. What a missed opportunity.

Blaming the insurance companies isn´t going to work because none of these problems on such a vast scale happened until O´Care was passed. (I will not call it the AFA. Obama´s name is all over it and he gets the blame, along with his Party.)

As for the Dems "trashing" Obamacare, that´s all well and good but words do nothing to ameliorate the problem. The Democrat Party itself, in a majority, must take action to repeal or dismantled ALL mandates.

As to how the Democrat Party will make restitution to the dead and to those whose entire life´s work went down the toilet to Obamacare hell, that is another matter.

People are losing their dignity, their lives and all the money they saved over a lifetime of hard work. Middle class people with less to lose, will lose just as much -- everything.

So words mean nothing. Trash away, Dems, but until you actually do something, you´re still going to get blamed along with the snake who sold you the rotten apple.

List the lies. There will be greater competition. If you like your plan you can keep it. A better plan will be more affordable. If you have an employer plan you like you will need to do nothing.

Can we afford for another 75 to 100 million to lose their insurance coverage? Repeal it. Then make specific reforms. Like competition across state lines and portability. Like medical savings accounts.

Don´t fall for this. The democrats will never buck Barry. Their fates are intertwined and like Obama promised, they will grind through this. Count on it. If they were serious, they would make it clear that they would vote to repeal it now. They believe like Obama that the outrage will pass and they will survive this. Besides Harry Reid would table any bill that makes its way to his desk. There is no way he would put it up for a vote. The only option they have is to stick it out. They know they will win in the end because Americans will go bankrupt with added health care costs. Then they can ride to the rescue. They just have to hold on until people are in dire straits. They are truly an evil bunch.

are exposed by their own local constituents as having gone to far down the road to the abject slavery of totalitarian Communism, then there will be a lot of confused "leaders" vomiting up their poison on the side of the road.

Remember George H.W. Bush? He told us to read his lips--no new taxes. It was a lie. And it affected Americans in their pocketbooks. Even though he had great success in foreign policy and in spite of the fact that the MSM didn´t run nonstop attacks (at least compared with their treatment of GWB), he didn´t get a second term.

Americans don´t much like lies that touch them in their pocketbooks. Obama has told not one lie but several that will deeply disrupt the personal finances of millions of citizens. The Democrats remember their losses in 2010. Back then, the damage to be caused by Obamacare was only distant and theoretical. Now it is up close and personal. The ones who don´t want to end up on the political scrap heap are already figuring out how to distance themselves from Obama and Obamacare.

Obamacare has been ruled a tax and therefore can be repealed in reconciliation by a simple majority vote.

Accordingly, if only six (6) of the 53 Senate Dems would "prove their sincerity" by joining 45 Senate Republicans in voting to repeal Obamacare, it would be a done deal. If not, all this Dem talk about "trashing" ObamaCare is just that -- trash.

obama has started his campaign on this disastrous law to blame it on the Republicans. I have yet to hear any Republican refute his claim. A little snippet here, there and whenever he can get a comment in, he is trying his darnedest to place blame away from himself and the Dems.

It should be screamed loud and clear daily that only the Dems shoved this law down the throats of the people on Christmas Eve with ONLY Dem votes.

Don´t even need a calendar anymore ... you can tell when an election is a year away.

Folks that act like Liberal Democrats in Washington realize that they have to snooker the lofos and bumpkins back home to get another term, so it´s time to act like you are conservative, care about the local saps, and (as sung by Charles Durning in "Best Little Whorehouse"), dance a little side-step and lead the people on ...

And of course, the establishment RINOs and the Washington Republican types who think those Libs throw great parties (and enjoy going to them) will let them get away with it.

Ain´t like the media are gonna trot our the "four pinnochios" liar ranking. They´ll do that a couple times in the off-years just to act fair, but don´t expect it in an election year.

Heck, they propped up Clinton´s bag man for governor of Virginia and you´d think he was a reformer compared to the alleged crook GOP governor.

Yes, we know this is their standard game of "pretend outrage." However, there is a very simple solution here. Namely, force a vote to repeal Obamacare just a couple months before the 2014 election. Reid will undoubtedly try to disallow even a vote on it, but here´s the beauty of his attempt to do so...given the number of Democrats who feign outrage, there are enough of them plus the Republicans to force a vote. And if the pretend-outrage-Democrats don´t do so, they are exposed as the liars they are.

Do it.

At this point in time, the Dims are counting on the health care web site to work somewhat efficiently come the fist of next week. If, by some miracle it does, then they will be out crying loud and long how everything is "fixed" and everything will proceed as planed. They will carefully avoid mentioning any thing about the financial ruin that it is going to bring on a very large number of people.

As another point, I ask why, with a VERY few exceptions, aren´t we hearing anything from the GOP about all that is happening, going to happen, and how only Dims voted for this train wreck? Everyone here at LCom knows full well what SHOULD be being said, but we hear nothing. My only guess is the Pubbies are waiting for the election season to start next year. But, they should be doing it right now./rant

Supreme Court upholds Michigan’s
ban on racial preferences
in university admissions
Washington Post, by Robert Barnes    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/22/2014 10:09:17 PM     Post Reply
The Supreme Court on Tuesday made clear that states are free to prohibit the use of racial considerations in university admissions, upholding Michigan’s constitutional amendment banning affirmative action. By a vote of 6 to 2, the court concluded that it was not up to judges to overturn the 2006 decision by Michigan voters to bar consideration of race when deciding who gets into the state’s universities. The ruling could encourage other states to join the handful that have such prohibitions, including California and Florida. Higher-education officials have warned that those states have seen a decline in the number of minorities

Court rules Obama administration
must justify targeted killings

The Obama administration must release internal legal documents justifying the targeted killings worldwide of Americans and foreigners suspected of terrorism, a federal appeals court ruled Monday. The decision in a case brought by The New York Times, two of its reporters and the American Civil Liberties Union likely will shed new light on the administration’s use of drones to target terrorists abroad. That program has resulted in the deaths of American citizens, such as leading al Qaeda figure Anwar al-Awlaki, killed by a drone strike in Yemen in 2011. Administration officials had sought to keep internal memorandums regarding the killings

Massachusetts representative Stephen Lynch isn’t just worried about the negative impact Obamacare will have on his party’s performance this fall — he also thinks its worst effects on our health-care system are still to come. Lynch, who voted against the Affordable Care Act in 2010, warned that the situation is “going to hit the fan” when the law’s delayed provisions go into effect down the road. “There are parts of Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, that were postponed because they are unpalatable,” he told Boston Herald Radio.

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

Obama to free hundreds of drug

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

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

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

Joan Eisenstodt didn´t have a stopwatch when she went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist recently, but she is certain the physician was not in the exam room with her for more than three or four minutes. "He looked up my nose, said it was inflamed, told me to see the nurse for a prescription and was gone," said the 66-year-old Washington, D.C., consultant, who was suffering from an acute sinus infection. When she started protesting the doctor´s choice of medication, "He just cut me off totally," she said. "I´ve never been in and out from a visit faster." These days,

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by

Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, including such unlikely bedfellows as John McCain of Arizona and Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined to support a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act and accusing the president of repeatedly ignoring the law he signed for political reasons. The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief
