    WSJ blasts the lie that is Obamacare...

    ____

    Change Nobody Believes In
    A bill so reckless that it has to be rammed through on a partisan vote on Christmas eve.


    And tidings of comfort and joy from Harry Reid too. The Senate Majority Leader has decided that the last few days before Christmas are the opportune moment for a narrow majority of Democrats to stuff ObamaCare through the Senate to meet an arbitrary White House deadline. Barring some extraordinary reversal, it now seems as if they have the 60 votes they need to jump off this cliff, with one-seventh of the economy in tow.

    Mr. Obama promised a new era of transparent good government, yet on Saturday morning Mr. Reid threw out the 2,100-page bill that the world's greatest deliberative body spent just 17 days debating and replaced it with a new "manager's amendment" that was stapled together in covert partisan negotiations. Democrats are barely even bothering to pretend to care what's in it, not that any Senator had the chance to digest it in the 38 hours before the first cloture vote at 1 a.m. this morning. After procedural motions that allow for no amendments, the final vote could come at 9 p.m. on December 24.

    Even in World War I there was a Christmas truce.

    The rushed, secretive way that a bill this destructive and unpopular is being forced on the country shows that "reform" has devolved into the raw exercise of political power for the single purpose of permanently expanding the American entitlement state.

    Sarah Palin is no less, or more, a US Citizen that you or I, so what does whatever she would do matter to you?

    Hopefully after the 2010 election, some of this might be able to get peeled back. Starting with the bribes like the Cornhusker Bribe er, I mean "Deal"

    That's the best you can do? I can see why you would want to deflect the fact that you are one of the losers that elected that fuck and is stupid enough to continue defending him. The democraps have proven once and for all that they are nothing but a bunch of lemmings that will follow any asshole off of a cliff.

    save Billions
    closes doughnut hole
    No pre existing conditions
    No wasting million on executive salaries
    Crammed through? The right said the same in the 1930s and social security. Ask any of the Democrats or Republicans " don't touch my social security."
    Benefits seniors reduces waste, extends benefits almost 10years
    expands medicare
    Status quo is no longer an option
    saves billions off the budget.
    Time to pass it now!

    enough fear and hate.
    Republicans had a year and a half to produce something, but no just more fear and hate.
    A public option should be added come spring.
    I enjoy the pain and suffering on the constipated Republicans lying every chance they get.
    IMOa slo uptick in the economy will take care of the next few elections.

    You know, I have yet to hear Obama give one speech that doesn't have a threat to the American people woven in it somewhere.

    So stuff your ridiculous fear and hate mantra. You guys deliver on that every day.
