This country, and the Constitution, was built so that a simple majority could not sway the law like a limp noodle back and forth constantly. It's supposed to take a strong majority to make sweeping changes like taking over the national healthcare system. Such actions are supposed to written and funded by the House and approved with a 3/5ths vote in the Senate, and still approved yet again by the President.
With this move, Obama acted basically like a KING, not a president.
This passes for news? What the hell is this, Facebook?
"We all of us know down here that politics is a tough game. And I don't think there's any point in being Irish if you don't know that the world is going to break your heart eventually."-Daniel Patrick Moynihan, December 5, 1963
I would have to agree, the average Liberal understands the world at about the level of a nine year old girl.
Best of the Web Today: Could Republicans Be Winning? - WSJ.comAs for the kids with cancer, The Wall Street Journal reported Monday on the consequences of cuts to the National Institutes of Health: "Director Francis Collins said about 200 patients who otherwise would be admitted to the NIH Clinical Center for clinical trials each week will be turned away. This includes about 30 children, most of them cancer patients, he said."
The Washington Post's left-liberal Wonkblog picked up the story: "As long as the government is shut down, the National Institutes of Health will turn away roughly 200 patients each week from its clinical research center, including children with cancer."
Healio.com reports that the House today passed a bill to restore NIH funding--but Obama has already issued a veto threat. Yesterday, as the Washington Free Beacon notes, CNN's Dana Bash asked Reid about it at a press conference:
Bash: You all talked about children with cancer unable to go to clinical trials. The House is presumably going to pass a bill that funds at least the NIH. Given what you've said, will you at least pass that? And if not, aren't you playing the same political games that Republicans are?Reid: Listen, Sen. Durbin explained that very well, and he did it here, did it on the floor earlier, as did Sen. Schumer. What right did they have to pick and choose what part of government is going to be funded? It's obvious what's going on here. You talk about reckless and irresponsible. Wow. What this is all about is ObamaCare. They are obsessed. I don't know what other word I can use. They're obsessed with this ObamaCare. It's working now and it will continue to work and people will love it more than they do now by far. So they have no right to pick and choose.Bash: But if you can help one child who has cancer, why wouldn't you do it?Reid: Why would we want to do that? I have 1,100 people at Nellis Air Force base that are sitting home. They have a few problems of their own. This is--to have someone of your intelligence to suggest such a thing maybe means you're irresponsible and reckless--Bash: I'm just asking a question.
Bash: But if you can help one child who has cancer, why wouldn't you do it?
Reid: Why would we want to do that? I have 1,100 people at Nellis Air Force base that are sitting home. They have a few problems of their own.
Bigger Problem? Cancer or sitting at home?
Reid and the rest of the Dems in the Senate don't care. Obama either.
Even if a person signed up for Obamadon'tcare, they can't get anything out of it until 1 Jan. Some of those kids could be dead by then courtesy Reid and Obama.
"“If we don’t deepen our ports all along the Gulf — places like Charleston, South Carolina; or Savannah, Georgia; or Jacksonville, Florida…” -Obama

If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
Obama has illegally changed the law 20 times. He doesn't have the Constitutional authority to grant thousands of waivers to his corporate pals, yet he does it anyways. He is operating outside his Constitutionally appointed powers like a dictator. I understand you think he's cool because Entertainment Tonight, MTV and lady Gaga told you that, but in reality he's a used car salesmen from Chicago on a power trip. Always campaigning. Never governing. Never leading. That's what these fascist leaders do. Endlessly campaign against a propaganda created enemy. Labeling his political opposition terrorists, arsonists, ect that want to kill children.
Fascism is left wing collectivist ideology with it's roots firmly planted in Marxism. Mussolini was a radical Marxist before he created Fascism which he called "The Third Way" between Capitalism and Communism. Fascism and Communism are competing ideologies. Not opposite. Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini were praised by Western Left Wing politicians and journalists at the time. The reason why Hitler eliminated the Communists is because they were a rival faction of socialism. To the Nazis Capitalism was an evil jewish scheme. Their propaganda (especially anti jewish propaganda) always characterized the jews as evil greedy money grubbing capitalists. The same sentiments were expressed by Marx.
As with all top down centralized authoritarian regimes (which is what Obama is attempting to create at the moment) Government tools become weapons against political opposition. The IRS, NSA, EPA and a host of other Government organizations have become hostile to The Public. Obama and his cronies care nothing for the Constitution. With this HC law their ultimate goal is to expand their power. That's all these left wing demagogues ever do. Play class warfare/divide/take control. Obamacare is not about HC. It's about control.
I mean seriously, using a 9 year old girl for propaganda purposes like this is textbook Fascist propaganda. Anyways, feel free to reply claiming Fascist is right wing, but sorry you're wrong and your left wing teachers lied to you in school. If you want to go through the entire debate we can do that. I'll be happy to quote Hitler, Mussolini and several other prominent fascists and left wing westerners at the time like George Bernard Shaw who championed Hitler's eugenics program and socialist policies.
Obamacare = Fascism
He even wrote the damn bill with the insurance companies. Wake up man
