As MA Shock Settles In, New Direction On Health Care Will Arise

Published by at 7:33 am under All General Discussions,Obamacare

I would say today is going to be an interesting day in DC. Speaker Pelosi, Senate Leader Reid and President Obama are going to be faced with a whole new world today. This new world will arise as news of the pending loss of Ted Kennedy’s senate seat (see here and here for all the evidence of this happening) initiates events that will begin to reshape the political dynamic in DC.

What will happen today is the centrist Dems will say enough is enough and they will pull support from the Frankenstein’s Monster of a health bill. They will need to in order to survive, and not all of the Dems are willing to lose their seat for Pelosi, Reidf and Obamna. The fiasco being ‘debated’ (more liked bribed) in DC right now is the epitome of special interest back door dealing – the very thing Obama promised to end. Americans hate it. Worse yet, it deals with one of the most precious aspects of our lives, our health care. If this is how the bureaucrats and pols plan to control health care, imagine how the death panels will operate when doling out limited resources.

I am not sure how the far left liberals will react. They have been on a political suicide watch all year. But with news that the rising public anger with the left and Dems has now taken out one of the liberal bastions high on the hill, it is clear the reach of this uprising is historically long and strong.

No one but those in deep denial as to how far off track they have gone needs more evidence than a Republican blow out in the MA special election for Ted Kennedy’s seat. Even the far left knows if/when that happens the Kennedy Camelot is over – and I am a big fan of John and Robert Kennedy. This will end the Kennedy dynasty on a national level. Having a Democrat heir to the seat waltz in and take her place was going to prove the Kennedy mystic was still potent.

Tuesday we will realize it is not. The Kennedy’s will join the Adams, Roosevelts and the Bushes as the few families to have national power. Sadly, due to assassins, the Kennedy run was never realized like the others, but I think it would have been as awe inspiring as the others.

The liberal movement is tied to this now distorted image of Camelot. It too has taken a near mortal hit. To finish them off politically all the liberals need to is go full speed ahead into their last stand. Where, like Custer, they will be met with an overwhelming force of very angry and merciless voters.

Ironically, by reaching too far and coming up with such a crippled and ugly solution to health care, the liberals have opened the door for a much more centrist solution to arise from the ashes of their political implosion. Tort reform could easily pass now, opening competition across state lines can pass now. Even opening up insurance co ops for small businesses and individuals to buy reasonably priced plans is now preferable.

And this wave of hope and change now rising will also open the door to tax cuts to boost the economy and create jobs, and cuts in spending to reduce the debt. It will take new people from outside DC, like Scott Brown, to shed the old ways of back door dealings and power that infect people in DC. But it could be the beginning.

    “Custer” not “Custard” though I’m sure the second would be messy as well.

  2. AJ,

    The Left’s objective with Obama’s health care legislation it to destroy the current health care system, so there is no alternative to single-payer.

    They still have the votes — before Brown is sworn in — to pass something that will do that.

    Brown’s winning by a convincing margin in Mass will make a large number of Democratic Senators and Representatives — those from red and purple states up for reelection in 2010 — back away smartly from doing that.

    I am afraid anything less than that will see the Left destroy our current health care system.

    Custard? Lol, you gotta change that! It gives me visions of a horde of Indians charging across the plains carrying cream pies. Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk!

    Seriously, I’m not sure why anything will change today. I don’t think anyone in Washington will believe that Coakley is going to lose until she actually does, so they won’t make any plans for that. Now Wednesday, *that* may be the day something changes. We need *some* Senator (Liebermann? Nelson?) to stand up and say “No vote until Brown is seated”. Passing this thing with a stand-in Senator who’s holding his seat by fraud would be the most destructive thing the Dems could do to this country.

    But I don’t put it past them. Is there one honest Democrat in the Senate today? We’re about to find out.

  4. This is an example of how Democratic Leftists view religious freedom and heath care from the Brown – Coakley, and one of the reasons whyDemocratic Health Care Reform is going to get the party killed in blue states in 2010, via the Campaign spot blog:
    Meanwhile, there’s another great gaffe from Coakley in heavily-Catholic Massachusetts, suggesting that nuns should not work in emergency rooms:

    Ken Pittman: Right, if you are a Catholic, and believe what the Pope teaches that any form of birth control is a sin. ah you don’t want to do that.

    Martha Coakley: No we have a separation of church and state Ken, lets be clear.

    Ken Pittman: In the emergency room you still have your religious freedom.

    Martha Coakley: (…stammering) The law says that people are allowed to have that. You can have religious freedom but you probably shouldn’t work in the emergency room.

    So, in a very poor job environment, Democrats are telling devout Catholics they are “religiously unqualified” to work in the health care field.

    If i were Brown, that would be in an attack ad.

    If I were a Republican 507, I would be tarring all Democrats with that statement whenever health care is the subject.

    People are rightly pointing out the pork and bribes being offered and demanded by those who will vote for the bill.

    But what is being missed is not even set to words on paper.

    Behind those closed doors there are being used threats of financial support for elections being cut and the threat to support alternative candidates and the other segment of this is likely offers of cushy jobs with supports of the group in power or high level appointments via the administration.

    See already the rumors of high level potential appointments for Dodd.

    I don’t usually get bothered by my infinite typos – but that one has me holding my head in shame! Thanks for the catch.

    “You can have religious freedom but you probably shouldn’t work in the emergency room.”

    my god – she really is a fascist!! Yes, dictating where people are allowed to work based on their political and religious views is a classic fascist policy, as distinguished from a communist system which tells *everyone* where they can work no matter what their views are, and both are diametrically opposed to American capitalism where people are free to choose their own work and the government has no right to interfere with that decision.

    She has no understanding of or respect for the constitutional view of “freedom”. Coming from someone who has served as an Attorney General, this is disgusting. She truly is unfit to hold any elective office, much less a national one.

    I live in a border town and heard on the local news that Ben Nelson ( Traitor) NE was booed, hissed and told by customers to get out of a popular pizza resturant in Omaha.
    I have no faith that the traitor will reverse his traitorous ways. I believe the fix is in and the payoff too great, but the voters of NE will show him the door and make him an unwelcome state resident until then.
    From Wikipedia:
    “Nelson’s early career as assistant general counsel for Central National Insurance Group of Omaha was followed by service as Nebraska’s State Insurance Director before he returned to Central National Insurance as an executive vice president; he eventually became the company’s President.”

    Whose cozying up to big Insurance (AARP), Big Pharma (all of them), the Medical ORGANIZATIONS?
    The payoff is in. I hope it can be stopped but am not optomistic, but then I am admittedly a skeptic!
