This is from Democrats, the pollsters for Carter and Clinton.
It is possible some sober voices in the Democratic Party will wake up and say "wait a minute. Is this really worth it?" and pull back from the cliff.
Now we have an administration intent on passing a bill opposed by a majority of Americans (the very criterion Obama himself used against one of Bush's bills when he was a senator) using a parliamentary tactic they all agreed was unfair when they were the minority. And if they can't do that they will use a rule that is unconstutional and denies any representation whatsoever.
Even if they pass the bill they will have to contend with states suing to have the bill thrown out.
It is the most short-sighted strategy I have ever seen by the biggest incompetent to occupy the Oval Office ever. And that includes Warren Harding.
If they pursue this they will go into political obscurity. If they drop this they will suffer a short term setback.
Dems did what they always do ... overplay their hand, in-fight, and roundly fuck up a cup of coffee.
Reps did what they always do ... live in hyperbole, do anything they can to the cloud the debate, demonize, and pretend they are willing to compromise.
The end result is we all get screwed.
Who was pretending to be willing to compromise? Wasn't that Obama? And only after Scott Brown's win in MA.
The GOP was shut out of the debate early on. The Dums only brought them in when it was clear they couldn't force this through legally. Now that even that strategy failed they will force it through illegally.
Well Rabbi, your plea serves the misnomer tha first; the present Federal Power Structure, serves the American peoples interests; and second that this bill is about reforming the healthcare system.
If one assumes that premise; then in fact, none of it makes any sense.
If on the other hand one recognizes that the bill is designed to reinforcing and building upon the power of the present Federal Power Structure... then this bill and the otherwise irrational drive to pass it without regard to the blatant rejection of it by the people; makes perfect sense.
They're criminals... liars and frauds; subversives of the first order.
Xenophon I think they will lose a lot more then an election. They will lose much ground because this has and is causing this country to pull more to the right.
I'm loving NJ Gov. right now in what he is doing. All states should follow that lead by firing all union workers and re-hire nonunion workers.
Ever notice that the k00ks never have anything to say about the union excesses??? Its always about the banker bonus'...........
The fcukkedupedness of it is fascinating to me!!!
The road to REAL reform is wide open.
The leading dems won't follow it, they insist on their backroom designed bribe fest.
It will be their downfall, and this mess will never survive, they can pass it, but it will be repealed.
this isn't a partisan issue here folks, niether the dems or reps give a flying fig about you, and consider you parasites.
HC is an up/down issue, not right or left
