Is Obamacare TOO BIG to FAIL? Hello Dodd, Frank? CFPB?
It’s hard to know who is the giant and who are the minuscule people these days. I’m going with Gulliver as We the People and the small people as those that represent the government hoping to keep us tied down with debt and honourus regulations like Obamacare. Notice how he doesn’t use that word anymore? It’s all ACA now that he can’t kid about it anymore and smile | Read More »
A Case Study: Yep, Congress Has Repealed A Bad Healthcare Law Before Now…Almost.
They say history repeats itself. Maybe events do but not always the outcome. Case in point. Congress passed a Medicare Catastrophic Coverage Act in 1988 but quickly realized it wouldn’t work. Seniors rose up in indignation and disgust over the costs and Congress retreated in response to The People. It Sounds remarkably similar to the high risk pool in O’care called the CLASS Act that was promptly | Read More »
FAST TRACK: It’s Unknown, Scary and Real. It Must Be Stopped In Its Tracks ASAP.
Remember those other famous word, never let a crisis go to waste? Given the recent events and the permanent structure of the Obama, Inc. campaign (OFA), is it beyond belief that a crisis is admin made? What a nefarious plot for a book that would make. The debate about the CR and debt ceiling has sucked all the oxygen out of the room and rightly so. Meanwhile, something else | Read More »
Mr. Speaker, Tell America the Truth: the President WANTS to Default and to Blame the House
An Open Letter to the Speaker of the House, Mr. Boehner: The president will not negotiate and he’s repeatedly said so. Nor will the Senate Majority Leader. Therefore you should quit negotiating with them and your own Party. No matter what proposal you offer, they refute it within minutes. And what has the Senate or president offered? Nothing! It is evident that the House has tried | Read More »
The Speaker Heard The People and His Caucus. Now Onto the Strategy and Negotiating…
“Stand Up and Defund It or Sit Down and Do Nothing, Sort Of” was the title when I finished this diary in the wee hours last night. But upon reading that the House will include defunding in the CR today, I had to change it. Yet I still have a few qualms with their reported strategy that are outlined below. No matter what strategy one | Read More »
A Call to Action: Deploy the Syrian Strategy to DEFUND Obamacare
We may never know if Congress would have authorized military force that the president requested since he yanked it before the vote, but the odds were leaning towards a resounding no. To no surprise, Speaker Boehner and Leader Cantor immediately voiced their support for the president, after one WH meeting with him, even before Obama laid out his full case to Congress and The People. The president said jump, | Read More »
Reaping the Rewards of the Seeds He Sowed: A RUN AWAY! Foreign Policy Dominoes (Update Post Speech)
You are what you reap. And the president must be patting himself on the back for successfully selling a foreign policy of retreat to the American people and to Congress. When was the last time we had such partisan agreement on any issue? For the past 6 years, he’s done a phenomenal job of telling us why we are no more special than any other country, even got elected | Read More »
At this Point, Benghazi DOES Matter and the Uneven Parallels
*We all know the infamous line from then Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. Many of us were in shock for days over her callous statement, not to mention the outright lies she and all the others of this feckless admin, from top to bottom, showered upon us for over a month before a crack of truth inconvienently eked out. Of course the president lied like Pinocchio with | Read More »
The Water Cooler ~ Obama’s Syria Stategy: Forward, I Mean About Face
The president just announced that he will now get authorization from Congress for the limited military operation he was about to commence in Syria. This about-face is shocking and I can’t imagine what the implications are for our allies and enemies. Personally, I thought he, Biden and Kerry were the biggest hypocrites for wanting to act alone and without Congressional approval, after they bashed Bush constantly, including | Read More »
I Have Found the Elusive Pushmi-Pullyu! And Two Good Reasons to be Optimistic.
A Pushmi-Pullyu is a unicorn-type character from Dr. Doolittle with two heads that is perpetually at odds with itself. Once thought to be extinct, low and behold, it was right under our tent. It’s the GOP! The “Focus” article from EE advised us, the voters, to keep our eye on the real issues and implore our lawmakers to do the same. Sound advice. There’s just one problem; | Read More »
