To listen to the loud, plaintive wails from the left, you’d think that Obamacare was the greatest invention since white bread and that the only reason conservatives want no part of it is pure selfishness. Jamelle Bouie, as a case in point, has an item at the Daily Beast titled “They Just Don’t Care if Healthcare.Gov Works or Not.” The they in that sentence refers to Republicans — his umbrella term for all cretins who refuse to acknowledge the “truth” that the rough part is over and that the future of Obamacare is bright. He laments:
In a lawless power grab that broke all the rules in order to change the rules to favor Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s leftist agenda…and knowing that Republicans will most likely retake the Senate and keep the House in 2014…the Senate under Harry Reid’s hand invoked the ‘nuclear option’…thus heralding in the start of at least one very dangerous year of ‘unilateral rule of government’ where the will of the Democratic majority will trample on the rights of the Republican minority.
And the utter hypocrisy in this is that in 2005, when he was Senator Barack HUSSEIN Obama, this most miserable excuse of all presidents was against anyone wanting to initiate the ‘nuclear option’ saying it was nothing but a partisan move to push a partisan agenda. But now with his approval ratings sinking to an all-time low (37% at last check) and as ObamaCare falls apart before his LYING eyes… all that has changed and in a last ditch attempt to save ObamaCare and his legacy…and to stack the bench with left-leaning judges…Barack HUSSEIN Obama signaled his cohort Harry Reid to ram through the ‘nuclear option’ so that starting with this Congress, only a simple 51 vote majority is needed to push through ALL of his executive branch and leftist judicial nominees (except for Supreme Court nominees) by removing them from the possibility of facing a Republican filibuster.
America’s very own ‘Axis of Evil’ with their all-consuming leftist partisan ideology existing only to inflict as much pain as possible on ‘We the People’ and doing so in the most hateful, spiteful, and vindictive of ways.
Mocking, denigrating, ridiculing, and always finding fault with ‘We the People’ every chance they get…have you ever heard these three speak kindly of America or the American people…I think NOT. Have you ever heard these three speak with pride about American exceptionalism…American entrepreneurship…American accomplishments…I think NOT. Have you ever heard these three bursting with pride over the victories of our military or speaking with tears in their eyes honoring the many acts of valor done by our troops and veterans…again I think NOT.
The party died by its own hand…with the knife dug deep by the RINOS…as they knowingly and willingly went into the Democratic fire like lambs to the slaughter…led by a man with NO backbone at all…NO backbone when it was needed the most.
“We fought the good fight; we just didn’t win,” Speaker of the House John Boehner said in a recent radio interview but truth be told he was played for a fool by ‘Prince’ Harry Reid and his evil Queen Nancy Pelosi…two of the most vile politicians ever to grace the halls of Congress…two who must be toasting each other that they won it all for their wicked King…and ‘We the People’…the peasants…be damned.
Ahhh…the cacophony of vile words spewing from the mouths of the left over these past few weeks would be quite funny if it wasn’t so sad a commentary on how low the Democrats will sink to defame and dishonor their Republican colleagues who sit just across the aisle.
According to Barack HUSSEIN Obama, ‘Prince Harry Reid’, Wicked Witch of La-Lafornia Nancy Pelosi, Al Bore…I mean Gore…and a host of Democratic Senators and speech writers, we Republicans and TEA Party members are extortionists, hostage-takers, terrorists, saboteurs, anarchists, squealing political pigs, arsonists, and murderers.
“Congress must do its job and raise the debt limit to pay the bills we have incurred and avoid default,” White House mouthpiece Jay Carney bloviated a few days ago.
And Jimmy Carter…now the second worst president in US history…called NOT raising the debt ceiling like Obama wants a “threat to the integrity of this government….a short-term deal to avoid default would be better than nothing,” adding but even that “just means you’ll have another crisis.”
This from the man who derailed the American economy before Ronald Reagan came in to clean up his mess.
And so it seems that ‘Prince’ Harry Reid is now pulling Obama’s strings for late yesterday afternoon Reid announced that he and Obama will NOT accept Boehner’s proposal regarding the short term raising of debt ceiling unless a ‘clean’ continuing resolution goes along with it…as in do what we originally demanded or you get NOTHING!
And so Speaker of the House John Boehner has been blowing smoke into the air with his proposal for a 6-week raise in the debt ceiling in exchange for the Democrats to be willing to sit down with the Republicans and negotiate on other matters…matters such as ObamaCare and spending cuts.
But why did Boehner even offer a negotiation proposal in the first place when Obama’s approval ratings have fallen to 37% in the polls, and with the fact that the sky will NOT fall if the debt ceiling is NOT raised…and all Obama’s bloviations to the contrary are just threatening game-playing words of NO substance at all.
President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., have done everything short of threatening to shoot a puppy on live TV to cajole Republicans into raising the debt limit so Democrats can
spend waste more of our hard-earned money.
But history shows that both men were adamantly opposed to raising the debt ceiling in 2006.
Senate Democrats are expected to release their bill on the debt increase today with an increase of 1 trillion or more, so that voters won’t see another increase before they vote in 2014. The bill contains no cuts in spending. Since Obama took office in 2009, he has raised the debt by 7 trillion and this bill would take that number over 8 trillion. The bill could be released as early as today.
It is not likely such a bill would pass even in the Senate, where Republicans capitulate on a daily basis and it would fail in the House. Harry Reid and President Obama continue to play politics in hopes that it will cost Republicans the election in 2014. Government shutdowns have occurred 27 times in our country’s history, but this is the first time that any party has refused to negotiate.
October 17th…the day Treasury Department spokespeople have said that the government’s cash-on-hand will only be $30 billion when everyday our government must spend at least $60 billion…and they claim there is NO way of reducing payments by an across-the-board percentage to stay under the debt limit.
By October 17th “The debt ceiling must be raised…this cannot and should not be a matter of negotiation,” so bloviates Obama mouthpiece Jay Carney.
And as October 17th draws near “The president is risking default by not having a conversation with us,” says Speaker of the House John Boehner.
But the thing is they’re ALL wrong for there is NOTHING magical about October 17th as the debt ceiling was actually reached back on May 19th.
