“…when we do prop like this, stack it up and you repeat 2,400 pages, et cetera, you know, the truth of the matter is -- is that health care's very complicated.”
A PROP?? IT’S HIS BILL!!!
"…the question is how far to go. So ... you're either in or you're out. (Either) the government can't do it -- none of it -- or they can do some."
Exactly. The Republicans and the American people have long ago recognized that the government “can’t do it” and are “out”. But, again, this is a President and Democratic Congress that is hearing impaired and refuses to listen. Taking the Vice-President’s remarks one question further, why would the American people respond by saying the government “can’t do it”?
“President Barack Obama closed Wednesday’s healthcare summit by stating his willingness to use controversial rules to pass healthcare with a simple majority vote. “We cannot have another yearlong debate about this,” Obama said. “When it comes to the most contentious issue, I'm not sure we can bridge the gap”.
“I think one of the results of today’s meeting is that the American people fully understand that this bill needs to go forward with a majority,” Waxman said. “I don’t think too many people are going to quibble if it involves reconciliation.”
And House Speaker Nancy Pelosi must have many Democrats who are up for re-election in November this year grabbing their collective chests with her latest bomb. According to the Speaker she personally doesn’t care about the 2010 election results as long as her left-wing, socialist Democratic party passes ObamaCare and imposes more government control, cost and waste on the American people. After the ObamaCare summit Pelosi said the following,
"We're not here just to self-perpetuate our service in Congress," she said. "We're here to do the job for the American people.”
Perhaps the Speaker meant to say “…do the job ON the American people”.
- the Republicans have offered health care solutions to the President, House and Senate leadership that are dismissed out of hand,
- the American people have offered their voice of opposition to ObamaCare through Tea Parties, Town Halls, New Jersey, Virginia and Massachusetts Republican victories,
- the Congressional Budget Office has scored ObamaCare as a long-term deficit ridden disaster,
- and public policy health care experts have stated emphatically that ObamaCare will result in more costs, less options and reduced care.
President Obama and his Democratic Congressional leadership’s response are to ignore and dismiss those messages and selfishly progress along their disconnected path towards socializing America.
“…that's what elections are for”.
