    AUDIO Of Jim DeMint Saying Health Care Will Be Obama’s “Waterloo” | The Plum Line

    The audio adds a harsh overtone, even stridency, to the quote, and as such, it’s likely to find its way into ads pummeling Republicans as obstructionist:

    DeMint said:

    “If we’re able to stop Obama on this it will be his Waterloo. It will break him.”

    Obama himself just responded to DeMint, saying the following:

    “This isn’t about me. This isn’t about politics. This about a health care system that is breaking America’s families, breaking America’s businesses and breaking America’s economy. And we can’t afford the politics of delay and defeat when it comes to health care. Not this time, not now. There are too many lives and livelihoods at stake.”

    You’d think maybe DeMint’s quote could end up being a Waterloo of sorts, wouldn’t you?

    It's all about obamalama, if it weren't he'd be willing to take his time and get this right instead of braying out a false sense of impending doom if it's not done by "break time." jackazz. it is a monumental sweeping reform that's going to cost trillions, get it right or get off the playing field. go Jim DeMint!

    Dems have a super majority in the senate, obama's whining is just an attempt at distraction, the 'republicans' can block nothing.

    The government health plan will dismantle things that already work and the people are happy with.

    Obama health plan would repeal Erisa - WSJ.com
    I would like to correct the author on one point

    So when Mr. Obama says that “If you like your health-care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health-care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what,” he’s LYING. Period.

    fixed.
