The Left feasts upon the blood of youth
Generation Opportunity has a new anti-Obama ad that uses a memorably creepy image to get people talking: There has been some criticism of the ad for this disturbing imagery, but I think it’s just the ticket to appeal to the youthful appetite for sarcasm and viral media. The campaign against ObamaCare trumpeted by this ad is based at a web site called OptOut.org, which delcares: | Read More »
Shutdown chaos preferable to GOP Obamacare-siren-song cave
Our young above-it-all president knows best. He will never compromise on the signature achievement of his presidency. He will let the government down permanently if the Republican-adults-in-the-room-House doesn’t “save” us from him. Months will go by and eventually even Social Security checks won’t go out. There will be chaos in the land. I’m for it. For millions of us, the chaos is now five+ years | Read More »
A Contrary View Of The Fight Over Obamacare.
Like most of you here, I don’t like Obamacare. Hate it! Hate it! Hate it! And, yes, I would love to see it gone… But does anyone here really think that Obama would ever actually sign the bill repealing it? I think not. Just in the last few days Obama has ‘doubled down’ on Obamacare, declaring that: The problem we have is that over the | Read More »
The Cries of the House GOP Staffers and Congressmen
Put simply: Conservatives are only making Republicans do what they said they were going to do. That these Republicans and their allies off the Hill now cry foul and claim conservatives are only pushing this issue to make money in fundraises raises a particularly cruel question. Right, John Cornyn? Right, Eric Cantor? Right, Kevin McCarthy? Right, Mitch McConnell? The fact is, Ted Cruz is winning. | Read More »
Truth vs. Lies: ObamaCare, Deconstructed
Union bosses were for it before they were against it
. They sold their members on a President who told them they would get better healthcare at lower cost when the exact opposite is occurring–and even though they are still pushing
for nationalized healthcare.
We knew all along its consequences would be disastrous. Now, we are all paying the price.

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 »
The Latest on Fight to Defund Obamacare
Earlier today, House leadership agreed to advance a budget CR that will completely defund Obamacare, and ship it off to the Senate. Now is the time for Mitch McConnell and Senate leadership to live up to their own promises. They must whip up full support from the conference to stick with the House CR. However, there are some points to ponder, which might leave you | Read More »
Make ObamaCare defenders know they’ve been in a fight
Consider this a companion piece to “Fighting the good fight against ObamaCare.” A few correspondents pointed out that bills to defund or delay ObamaCare are not likely to get past the Senate, and there’s no way President Obama will sign them. That’s a fair point… but it’s not a reason to give up without even trying. On the contrary, it’s vitally important to make the | Read More »
Celebrate Constitution that was, use raw House power to defund Obamacare
The United States constitution is not self-executing. Sadly, in the Age of Obama it is more often honored in the breach. Republicans gain no ground pleading with Democrats to follow a Constitution they have long despised and whining about media bias as an excuse not to exercise its power of the purse. Yesterday was the 226th anniversary of the signing of the world’s greatest and | Read More »
GOP Follower Mitch McConnell
Irrespective of what happens to Mitch McConnell in next May’s primary, we will have to look for a new senator to run as GOP Senate Leader. Mitch McConnell has relegated himself to the position of GOP Follower. Whenever we are looking for someone to lead a conservative fight on the most contentious issues, Mitch manages to publicly duck the fight for as long as possible. | Read More »
Pure-as-snow Democrats threaten Vitter with past over bill
David Vitter has been irritating Democrats for a while by promoting a plan (an amendment to an energy bill) that would put members of the Legislative branch and their staff under the effects of Obamacare. Since GOP and Democratic leadership got the OK to exempt themselves from La Casa Blanca, they think the issue should be dropped. Vitter disagrees. And, because the Democrats are all | Read More »
It is quite clear that the deceptively-named “Affordable Care Act” (aka Obamacare), was NOT supported by “We the People” when it was crammed down our throats three years ago so we could “see what’s in it”. Its popularity has plummeted since then as we’ve found out. Support has dwindled in recent months among the middle and lower classes whose very jobs are threatened by it | Read More »
Fighting the good fight against ObamaCare
This is no time to go wobbly, Republicans. President Obama’s horrifying failure in Syria has left him dazed and adrift. He shuffled onstage within hours of a deadly shooting rampage in D.C. to launch tone-deaf slashing partisan attacks on Republicans, leading even a number of mainstream media cheerleaders to nervously fumble with their pom-poms and wonder what the hell he was thinking. I notice a | Read More »
Fighting for the wrong end game
The Democrats have long played a game of demographics when it comes to building a coalition on a much better level than the Republicans ever could. Now, that’s not to say the Republicans suck at getting support. When it comes to getting support, ideas have attracted voters to Republican candidates. “In the realm of ideas,” you’ll hear people like Rush Limbaugh say, “Republicans win.” It’s | Read More »
NM Democrats: Lying about Obamacare?
Will Obamacare really be good for New Mexicans? As a state that has many who struggle to make ends meet and many impoverished it is an important question. The Democratic Party of New Mexico says Obamacare will help people with disabilities. But will it really?
