The Revolt Over Obamacare Is Spreading

Published by at 11:44 am under 2010 Elections,All General Discussions,Obamacare

Liberals who think they can Rahm through government rationed Health Care are being sent a loud message from the states - who are lining up to legally block Obamacare:

The Virginia Legislature this week is poised to become the first state to pass legislation that says citizens cannot be required to have medical insurance.

Dozens of other states are considering similar measures, possibly setting the stage for one of the greatest tests of federal power over the states since the civil rights era.

If states are allowed to opt out of the mandate, the foundation of Obama’s effort would be undermined, turning the nascent revolt here into one with national implications.

You have to keep asking ‘what’s the point of this obsessive madness?” Obamacare is not going to be accepted. There are numerous legal ways to throw up roadblocks even if it is passed by Hyper-Partisan, ruthless measures. All of it can and will be delayed until there is enough change in DC to roll it all back – probably to deafening cheers from the American people.

The madness driving the aging and deluded liberals in DC is just pathetic. They keep pretending that if they just get the votes it will all be set in stone.  It won’t be, but the liberals will have erected the tomb stone for liberalism, that much is for sure. In fact, they may have already set that stone in place and dug the hole. They are simply waiting for the voters to fill it in – and then move on without any regrets.

There is no way to force change from DC. You can get people to agree to change, but you cannot wave your magic wand and tell people they must do what you say. The more you try the more people will stand up to take that silly wand out of your hands and smash it (probably over your thick head).

This Congress is done – it is the lamest of lame ducks. The Democrats are done, and Obama is done. Why continue to fight the majority of Americans? You can’t win. If Obama wants to, he could regain some support, but that would require him to bow down to us. I don’t think he has it in him (he only bows to foreigners).

    This process of the House on Obamacare is so bipolar. One day it news reports say support in the house is falling, the next day “Stupack is feeling better about it” and eports sound like its going to pass.

    If he has the votes why is he campaigning again?

    But on the other had as I wrote earlier, I have a nauseating feeling that the House Dems will fold and pass it. None of the are coming out against it in general principle. they are all complaining about nuances.

    Anyone have some hard evidence either way?

    Since I have always believed they would pass something, I lean towards oneal lane. Has anyone ever seen anything like it? Nope. This was O’s baby and we have never seen politicians willing to take public bribes with their own voters yelling at them. They push on. Hmmm…

    As angry as the American people are about this, I don’t understand why we are not seeing and hearing the Repubs 24/7. Someone lost the message. It should be Death Panels with the Waiting Lines to find the doctor. That’s enough to scare me.

    They intend to stick their foot in the door and fight the battle as a done deal. Most of those DIMS will cave and he will actually sign that thing fast. Then we will hear the Silence. Hey, everyone should know he has been working on jobs, jobs, jobs.

    Pushing the money line is fine but those very real Death Panels that will be killing Grandma slowly with O’s pain pill is pure terror.

    One of the grand ironies of a healthy republic is that if Cincinnatus, the citizen legislator or leader, is in power, he does not wish to pound the table and draw attention to himself. He wishes to discuss the merits of policy.

    If we have a fist-pounding, screaming demagogue as a leader who seeks the limelight, the cameras, the publicity, he wishes to make the people angry to make his limelight brighter.

    The GOP, for all its faults, does have a number of representatives who fit that Cincinnatus model. By their very nature, they are not going to get into a fist fight with Sen. Schumer over who gets the camera first. Instead we have Sen./Dr. Coburn, Sen./Justice Cornyn, Sen. Lugar (former Rhodes Scholar), Sen. McConnell (former Dep. Asst. US Atty). None of them are likely to pound the table and scream.

    Unfortunately, in a sound bite world, that puts the GOP at a considerable disadvantage. If you put Barney Frank on tv, you get good television, no matter how wild the rant. Mitch McConnell? Where’s the remote! (And I like him. Not good with parliamentary strategy or cameras, but I like him.)

    To paraphrase some famous radio personality with over 600 radio stations, “The aggressor sets the rules.” Cincinnatus leaders are, by definition, not aggressors.

    Why the quiet?

    Maybe the Republican Party has decided that they want this to run on next fall.

    Didn’t Mitch McConnell say if they pass this we will run on repeal?

    Makes me sick to think that the Party that thought it a good idea to give us an inarticulate, old white guy to run against Obama would make the decision that it is good politics to let the Dems pass this takeover and run on repeal as their path back to power.
