The Country Is Leading The Democrats The Weakest Dumbest Party Since Carter

He’s good at this. He’s confident and straightforward. I think it’s a very good thing to do. The real frustration in Vermont, and around America, is over the process. The hope is that this jump starts the discussion. This day has the potential to get the American people re-involved.

The health care bill the president is talking about is a private, not public option. It has several other ideas that are important to Republicans. There’s room there to find agreement and move ahead.

If today ends up being another kabuki dance of avoidance then America is going to have to forge ahead. My hope from the beginning is that we have a bipartisan bill.

Nobody with commonsense in America thinks we can pass a bill that will make everything perfect. If Republicans are going to use these arcane Senate rules to defy a vote on the merits, that’s very disrespectful to the America.
There are many reasons the Republican Party is often referred to as the Stupid Party. Many Republicans thought that after the President overshadowed the GOP at their Baltimore retreat last month, going to Blair House yesterday would just be another PR disaster.
It was anything but.
The GOP won the day so convincingly that even the traditional media had to praise the party for talking issues.
Contrast that with Barack Obama who scowled, berated, lied, and harassed the attendees — not to mention filibustered them.
In the most ironic moment of the day, Barack Obama lectured Virginia Congressman Eric Cantor on having the Democrats’ 2,700+ page health care bill on his desk at the meeting. Obama called it a “prop.” At the same time, Democrats were in the newspapers admitting that, in effect, Barack Obama was using the GOP as a prop in a vain effort to show bipartisanship on health care.
There is bipartisanship on health care. There is bipartisan opposition to it. The Democrats must realize today that they would get nothing out of the meeting. They will now try to force health care deform through Congress on a majority vote in each house.
Only a couple of years ago, Barack Obama praised the filibuster claiming it was what the founding fathers wanted to prevent the tyranny of the majority. Now he is intent on ignoring the filibuster and ramming through health care deform.
If nothing else, today shows the American public that the Republicans have a better agenda, better ideas, and are willing to stand up and oppose a reckless scheme that will increase health care costs.
n people.


  1. Bruce, in your own words without copying and pasting more of your BS links, what are they Hypocrat's "solutions" for containing health care INSURANCE costs with this plan? What are their "solutions" for containing health CARE costs?

  2. 47% Oppose Public Option Health Plan; 58% Oppose If Workers Forced To Change Coverage
    Thursday, February 25, 2010

    As President Obama convenes a bipartisan summit today in hopes of getting his health care plan back on track, voters remain closely divided on the creation of a government-run health insurance option. But opposition increases dramatically if its creation might force people to change their existing coverage.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 42% favor the establishment of a government-sponsored non-profit health insurance option that people could choose instead of a private health insurance plan. But slightly more voters (47%) oppose the creation of a so-called “public option.” Eleven percent (11%) are undecided.

    In December as the Senate worked out the final details of its version of the plan, 40% supported a public option, and 48% opposed it.

    If the creation of that public option encourages companies to drop private insurance coverage for their workers as many critics contend it will, opposition among all voters jumps to 58%. Support drops to 28%. These findings are unchanged from October.

    That’s explained in part by the finding that 59% of voters believe it is more important to guarantee that no one is forced to change their health insurance coverage than to give consumers the choice of a public option.

    30% think the choice of a government-run health insurance program is more important. These findings have changed very little in surveys stretching back for months.

    Here are the questions for you FAILk. But since you posted a poll from Rasmussen a little while ago, I know you won't be disputing their findings:

  3. John honey the liberals think the nation wants what they want. They think they are bigger then they are. This is the progressive sub-cultures last chance for their kind of change. That is why the Tea Parties are so effective.


    The survey of 2,999 households by Thomson Reuters Corp shows a public skeptical about the cost, quality and accessibility of medical care.

    Just under 60 percent of those surveyed said they would like a public option as part of any final healthcare reform legislation, which Republicans and a few Democrats oppose.

    Here are some of the results of the telephone survey of 2,999 households called from November 9-17 as part of the Thomson Reuters PULSE Healthcare Survey:

    * Believe in public option: 59.9 percent yes, 40.1 percent no.

    * 86 percent of Democrats support the public option versus 57 percent of Independents and 33 percent of Republicans.

    * Quality of healthcare will be better 12 months from now: 35 percent strongly disagree. 11.6 percent strongly agree. 29.9 percent put themselves in the middle.

    * Believe the amount of money spent on healthcare will be less 12 months from now: 52 percent strongly disagree, 13 percent strongly agree.

    * 23 percent believe it will be easier for people to receive the care they need a year from now.

    The nationally representative survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 1.8 percent.

  5. Hey Bruce, my poll is from, you know, yesterday. Not from December. Idiot. I know you can't dispute Rasmussen because you used them as a source. I didn't make you use them as a source, but I sure am going to hold you to it.

    Answer my questions Bruce. We're on pins and needles waiting for your answer that is not cut and pasted from MoveOn or Democratic Underground or MSDNC.

  6. Patterson is out. The Dems are jumping ship. It sure does look bad for the Dems.

  7. Still waiting ....

    Bruce, in your own words without copying and pasting more of your BS links, what are the Hypocrat's "solutions" for containing health care INSURANCE costs with THIS plan? What are their "solutions" for containing health CARE costs with THIS plan?

  8. What I find interesting is that when Reuters reports their poll findings, they don't post the actual poll results, so we can see it with our own eye's.
    You know like I don't take the word of Dems (& Reps) on the 'wording' of a bill, I actually like to read the thing myself and come to my own conclusions.

  9. But Mark they wont let us read it. I'm so upset with the Democrats right now. From what I heard the Republicans have some great points to add to the bill. There a lot of things in the bill that don't make sense.

  10. The Reps have some great things to add to it, Peter. However there are many things that need to be removed from this bill that no one in Washington seems to be addressing much.
    Like, for instance, the $6.7B annual fee levied on the industry by the Government that would skyrocket cost of the private sector companies that are outside of the exchange. That would get passed on to you and me.
    That would also pretty much collapse the private sector industry and alls you would end up with is the exchange.

  11. I managed to watch a lot of the proceedings yesterday. Clearly the Republicans put the Democrats in their place. I haven't heard any Democrats crying about MSNBC pulling their coverage when Obama was getting his ass handed to him. Funny, but that's all they could talk about when Obama talked to the House Republican's Caucus, when Fox moved on from covering Obama's Lies & Lectures Tour.

    Republicans got half the time but kicked ass four times as hard. Now Obama looks like a total ass for wasting everyone's time so that he could stroke his ego.

  12. Flipper are you a retard? With a name like Flipper I picture a big headed retard with stumps for arms. Go back to mommy.

  13. Jay-Ney Bet MOMMY Dont Want You Back! My Picture of You is a MUSHROOM Standing in CRAP Up to Your VERY Small HEAD! Gotta Agree with You "You Aint the SMARTEST"!

  14. JayNey you have some real issues. The left must love you.


Please keep it clean and nice. Thank you for taking the time to post you thought. It means a lot to me that you do this.
