Chicago´s Rahm Emanuel
Runs from Obamacare

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Warner Todd Huston

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/28/2014 3:25:07 PM

Joining a long line of Democrats distancing themselves from Obamacare, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel hinted that he didn´t support the President´s original plans for the healthcare take over and advised the President to take a different approach, though he shied from saying just what that meant. In a March 27 interview on cable business network CNBC, Emanuel claimed that he offered the President a "contrary opinion" on Obamacare but his advice was not heeded. "He asked for my opinion," Emanuel said during an interview on CNBC´s Squawk Box. "I gave it to him and why I thought we should do

Isn´t this rich coming from the brother of the evil lunatic, Ezekiel Emanuel, who conceived Obamacare.

It´s kind of like moving the deck chairs on the Titanic from one side of the ship to the other. Then when the smoke clears those chairs can be moved right back to where they were. You have to look at what was those politicians positions at the time Obamacare was passed and go from there.

FTA, says Rahm: "The president, to his credit, he was not scared to have contrary opinions. He, constantly during tough moments in passing that bill, asked me for my opinion, unvarnished," Emanuel said. And giving an honest answer was like answering an imperious wife´s question: does this dress make me look fat?

Imagine that the rat politicians decided that a poll showed that most Americans would like to fix up their homes, so they took charge to “serve” the people. They would start with minimum requirements – ramps and stair lifts; lever doorknobs; wiring and an outlet for an electric car; all bathrooms and kitchens must meet ADA standards (lowering your countertops 2”); windows, doors, and walls must meet EPA standards; shower heads, faucets, and toilets must be low-flow; at least one nursery room; and the list goes on for 3,000 pages including a catch-all that says that different departments will be writing more regulations as needed.

If you like your home, you can keep your home – as long as it meets the new standards or if you don’t change so much as a light fixture. In most cases, the remodel will require complete demolition and a total rebuild. You must use one of three government supplied blueprints and approved contractors, all at your cost. You are going to save on your utility bills when it’s completed.

Government buildings, civil servant’s homes, and select apartments are exempt – convents and rectories must comply. The homeless will receive complete subsidies (but not the new homeless). OK, there are a few flaws, but if you re-elect the rats, they will fix it. BTW, Rahm didn’t like the ramps.

That’s the rat’s solution for the homeless problem. Rahm didn’t like the ramps.

Prior to zerocare there were some shortcomings in our health care and insurance systems that could have used a fix. Tort reform, portability, pre-existing conditions, and competition restrictions are the main ones that come to my mind. The way the rats approached it was never with the intention of improvement, it was for total control.

They called it “comprehensive”, they lied.

I guess our healthcare had a couple of warts - I always worked so always had it - but wait until the dust settles and you see what we don´t have now. Remember early on Obumbler pulled $600 billion out of Medicare? A friend´s brother has been diagnosed with liver cancer, was advised this week that Medicare will not cover the tests needed to determine what type of cancer and what to do for it. I only wish Obummber would have to face the same threats but we all know he won´t. He makes me sick.

Virtually every key House Republican, from Speaker John Boehner on down, has vowed to oppose a conference committee with the Senate´s immigration bill passed last year. And lawmakers working to craft legislation to address the tens of thousands of children streaming across the southern U.S. border say it won´t touch citizenship for illegal aliens, increased visas, or any other topics than border security. But a key veteran of the immigration wars on Capitol Hill is warning that legislation to amend a 2008 law being cited for cumbersome, years-long deportations would theoretically open the door to a conference committee on the controversial

HOUSTON, Texas--Despite the border crisis that involves more than 1,000 illegal immigrants entering the country each day, Texas Democratic Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee apparently believes the U.S.-Mexico border is "under control." On MSNBC she recently said, "I disagree it is in devastating condition. I think with now 21,000 border patrol agents it is under control." She added that Border Patrol agents told her that "they are able to do their job, even though they had been called into service to change diapers and make formula."

President Obama’s defiant emphasis on executive action reveals a larger failure looming for his legacy: His inability to work with Republicans means that he’s unlikely to score even one significant legislative achievement over the final years of his presidency. Unless Democrats win back the House and hold onto the Senate in November, a scenario dismissed by most political analysts, Mr. Obama has said goodbye long ago to his biggest accomplishments in Congress. They occurred back in 2010, when Democrats controlled the House and Senate, and Mr. Obama signed into law Obamacare, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform act and a two-year extension

A prominent law professor and avowed supporter of the Obama White House will tell the House on Wednesday that the president has created one of the biggest constitutional crises in the country’s history and will endorse House Republicans’ effort to sue to rein him in. Jonathan Turley, a professor at George Washington University, will say President Obama is trampling the founders’ vision for the country in his push to circumvent Congress, and he will demand Republicans and Democrats alike forget their party labels to unify against this White House’s power grab. “What we are witnessing today is one of the

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., on Tuesday blamed last October´s government shutdown on Republicans wanting to deny women access to birth control. No really. Warren said this on the Senate floor while defending the Democrats´ deceptively titled “Women´s Health Protection Act.” “Remember last year´s government shutdown that nearly tanked our economy?” Warren asked. “That fight started with a GOP effort to hold the whole operation of the federal government hostage in order to try to force Democrats and the president to let employers deny workers access to birth control.” Um, no, sorry.

News 12 New Jersey reporter Sean Bergin has reportedly been suspended for comments he made on-the-air Sunday evening about the black community. After reporting on a suspect in the fatal shooting of Jersey City police officer Melvin Santiago, Bergin told his viewers that News 12 was “besieged” with phone calls from police officials “furious that we would give media coverage to the life of a cop killer.” Those complaints were “understandable,” Bergin said. “We decided to air it because it’s important to shine a light on the anti-cop mentality that has so contaminated America’s inner cities.” He then made the

Conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer isn’t so sure Democratic Sen. Harry Reid is on his medication. Krauthammer speculated on Reid’s mental health on “Special Report with Bret Baier” Tuesday night. The panel, including Baier and Fox News contributor Mara Liasson, was discussing the influx of illegal immigrants — mostly women and children — flooding over the southern border. Liasson explained that President Obama has always said he “wanted the flexibility to treat kids from Central America the same as Mexico” but never explicitly asked Congress to change the Bush-era 2008 sex trafficking law. “He wanted Congress to go first,” she said.

WICHITA, Kan. — Moderate Republicans have been kicked around by the tea party for years in Congress and the states. Here in Kansas, they’re fighting back. A moderate GOP uprising is in full swing against Gov. Sam Brownback, the fierce fiscal and social conservative whose policies led to a purge of middle-of-the-road Republicans from the legislature early in his tenure. In a rare and surprising act of political defiance on Tuesday, more than 100 Republicans, including current and former officeholders, endorsed Brownback’s opponent, statehouse Democratic leader Paul Davis.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
