    their own insider, frum, told them this

    at the time, pissed off because they did not like his message, they shot the messenger ... or more accurately, fired him from his position at that oxymoronically described conservative think tank

    the ONLY chance the republicans have of a decent election outcome is if Obama is unable to turn dubya's recession around.

    Re: GOP wary of health law repeal push in fall races

    Regardless of whether or not it was a Political stunt.

    What was ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL was that some form of Healthcare Reform needed to be passed and adopted.

    The GOP knew this as much as did the Democrats, and yet for 6 years while they (GOP) held a majority in Congress, they muttered vaguely about doing something, basically they did diddly squat.
    Regrettably this type of non action is typical of the GOP who seem to prefer the status quo rather than attempt to fix a system that was broke.

    Now the GOP are in a cleft stick situation, they privately support many of the provisions in this Bill, but do not have the courage to say so.
    They bleat on about 'Repeal' as though this mantra will gain them votes in November, it will not.
    If they are to have any chance of taking either House or Senate they need to have a mandate of Fiscal rectitude.
    Not necessarily Tax rises but instead how would they fix this bill such that it will not continue to increase the USA deficit.
    How to give these uninsured people coverage for healthcare.
    It should be obvious to everyone that the USA is and has been for many years a Socialist state, true up till now we have also believed in Free Enterprise (apparently with Obama & his merry band this perception is to be changed) which is slightly unfortunate as all these goodies these Communists want to bestow upon the USA have at some time to be paid for.
    Printing money is not the answer although Obama seems to believe it may be, presumably because he can then blame the resulting INFLATION on the next administration.

    here's a happy headline:

    IRS needs additional TEN BILLION dollars to make all those pretty provisions of health care a REALITY

    CNSNews.com - IRS Needs $10 Billion to Be Nation's Health Enforcer

    LOL!

    gosh, i wonder why...

    Easy.

    You repeal the entire bill in conjunction with passing a similar bill with the reform components that the American people want. This after de-funding the bill until Obama can be removed.

    If the Republicans don't run on this, they'll get no support from anyone.

    Re: GOP wary of health law repeal push in fall races

    obamacare "pays" its ways by placing TWO HUNDRED BILLION dollars of the TAB on already broken-backed states, what tennessee governor phil bredesen (dem) calls, "the mother of unfunded mandates"

    Governors balk over what healthcare bill will cost states - The Boston Globe

    almost every governor in the nation is on board with mr bredesen

    namely, bill richardson, ms gregoire, mr ritter (former colorado superstar who last year announced his retirement), mr schweitzer...

    I do believe they voted for CHANGE, which is always an extremely dangerous thing to vote for.
    OK, so you were misled by a conniving ex lawyer, so it is still your own fault because Lawyers are the most distrusted people in the world.
