… Obama is Going to Reach a Point on ObamaCrapCare …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,September 13th,2013

.. the way that things are going , the idiots in the ObamaCrap Administration are going to reach a point of No Return : they are going to be forced to admit that what they have created will not work .

.. The unions are complaining like hell . The AFL – CIO is realizing that the blowback on the insurance plans is going to hit their members , more than anyone else . Also , the “Cadillac Tax” on the higher – end plans is chiefly going to hit them . The influence that these loons have with the ObamaCraps have is considerable . Whether it will convince the ObamaCrap Administration to go back to the start things all over again is something else .

.. The ObamaCraps do not want to reopen ObamaCrapCare . First , it would be an enormous defeat , one of unimaginable magnitude . They do not control the House , the GOP does , and the concession on OCC would have conservatives in general , and the Tea Party , in particular , licking their chops . Secondly , it would likely lead to the loss of the Senate in 2014 . Many Senators up in that fall ‘ s elections have yes votes on OCC on their records . They also reside in “Red States,” ones in which either John McCain or Mitt Romney (or both) carried their states . The lack of a filibuster – proof majority in the Senate means that the Senate GOP is in the ballgame . A good number of them are likely in position to get even for being “run over” by the DemoCraps during the original OCC debate . Others are new or newer , such as Mike Lee (Ut) , Tim Scott (SC) , and Ted Cruz(Tx) , who are either Tea Party supported , or are Tea Partiers themselves .

.. The GOP would demand a high price for any renegotiation . One point is that the use of H.S.A.s would have to be greatly liberalized . H.S.A.s would put consumers back in the ballgame in terms of economics , and their participation would be anthema to the ObamaCraps . Another point would be medical malpractice tort – reform . The strength of the plaintiff ‘ s bar prevented any action to go after any semblance of tort reform in the original debate . Obama would act as a brake , but the GOP would act to force the plaintiff ‘ s bar to come to the table . There are other items , but these would be the best places to start .

.. The market in health insurance has to be able to work . OCC almost totally prevents it from working . The idiots in Congress have a habit of forgeting that when they pass legislation that there are unintended consequences of the changes that their legislation will make in the law . Some can be foreseen , will the resort to simple logic and foresight . Others cannot , and have to dealt with as best is possible .

… Dingy Harry should Resign …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,August 10th,2013

.. that , of course , is Senate DemoCrap leader “Dingy Harry” Reid . Good ‘ ol Dingy has stepped into it , big time , this time . His libeling and slandering of the GOP as racist is far below and beyond the pale .

.. The editorial page of the Washington Examiner puts it best …
Last week, it was Harry Reid telling his Senate colleagues to “sit down and shut up.” Not so long ago, it was the Senate Majority Leader playing the part of Joe McCarthy by sliming Mitt Romney with slanderous, never-documented suggestions that the Republican presidential nominee was a tax evader. These are only a couple of recent examples of the Nevada senator’s increasingly cranky querulousness.

Now it’s Reid outrageously suggesting that President Obama’s Republican critics disagree with him because he is black. Reid’s blatant attempt to cultivate racial division came during a radio interview when he said he hopes Republican criticism of the president is “based on substance and not the fact that he’s African-American.”

Just as patriotism is said to be the last refuge of scoundrels, Reid’s offensive remarks suggest the last refuge of Washington Democrats is playing the race card. Reid is certainly not the first Washington Democrat to do so, but his latest comment certainly ranks among the most vile.

As Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) said, “Our country deserves more from those in Washington. I hope Senator Reid will realize the offensive nature of his remarks and apologize to those who disagree with the President’s policies because of one thing — they are hurting hardworking American families.”

Scott, the first African-American to represent South Carolina in the Senate since Reconstruction, is being too diplomatic. In the name of civility, it’s time for Reid to retire and go home to Search Light, Nev.

being interviewed on a Nevada radio show , for opposing POTUS ‘ policies because he was a black man . Big Oops !

.. It seems ol ‘ Dingy Harry forgot the only current black member of the U.S. Senate is a Republican : Tim Scott of South Carolina . Scott is a religious man , a quiet man , and a local businessman , when not busy with politics .
Scott let him have it , in both the Washington Examiner , and in the Daily Caller .

.. Bravo , and thank you .
