‘You’re Not Understanding’: Dem Congressman Lectures Fox News Anchor on ObamaCare Waivers

Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., appeared on Fox News Wednesday morning to discuss efforts in the Senate to repeal the law when the conversation steered the question of waivers.  733 different organizations have applied and received temporary waivers from the law’s requirements from the Department of Health and Human Services. Assuring FNC’s Martha MacCallum that her characterization of the waivers was wrong, Weiner tried to explain why federal waivers to select companies and unions are a good thing:

“These are organizations — and, like you said, they run the gambit from big businesses to big union — who already have health insurance, have gone to the federal government and said, ‘Listen, our standards are high enough.’ And the federal government has agreed.
“The mythology here that this is a big government thing is… the example of how many people have been waived from the requirements is an example of that,” Weiner said.
But MacCallum challenged him, saying that everyone agrees the health care system needs reform.  But why would some companies need to be helped out of the new plan if it’s such a great plan?
“It’s not a plan,” Weiner said.  “It’s a set of standards.” So now giving exemptions to companies and unions that back the Democratic Party is the "standard"?  If I remember correctly it was the unions that said they wanted this health care reform. But now they don't want to pay for it. That makes sense if you are an idiot. Would it be fair to make the unions and big businesses pay more for the health care bill they wanted? Then why is it fair that they we have to pay for it when we didn't want it in the first place? I'm getting sick and tired of these Democrats screwing us and then telling us we just don't understand what they are doing to us. We understand and it doesn't feel good. We are a country of laws not of men. The Democrats have done everything the can to bail out unions and big business at the expense of the rest of us. I'm starting to see why the Democrats feel the need to shut down the internet. Maybe they see what is coming or what they are pushing us towards?

More Violence From The Left-Wing

A self-described Massachusetts "political activist" was arrested Monday night and charged with sending a threatening e-mail to Florida Rep. William Snyder, R-Stuart, an hour after the Arizona shooting that killed six and critically injured U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
The unsigned e-mail, sent to Snyder's state House of Representatives address on Jan. 8, told the legislator to "stop that ridiculous law if you value your and your familie's lives."
Snyder has proposed a bill cracking down on illegal immigration for Florida in a manner similar to what Arizona has done.
 All it takes is a quick look at some liberal blogs and you will see what they want to do to the right-wing in this country.

Are We Now Losing The War On Terror?

Newt Gingrich: "Any honest assessment on 9/11 this year, ten years after the attacks, I think will have to conclude we are slowly losing the war," Gingrich said. "We are losing the war because madrasas are out there teaching hatred, we're losing the war because the network of terror is bigger, not smaller... We're losing the war because there's a real possibility that in a few weeks, unfortunately, Egypt will join Iran and join Lebanon and join Gaza and join the things that are happening that are extraordinarily dangerous.

Obama Hears Egyptian Protesters But Not The Tea Party Protesters

Hundreds of thousands of protesters in Egypt take to the streets demanding change from what they perceive to be an unresponsive government. United States President, Barack Hussein Obama is so moved that he calls the President of Egypt urging Mr. Mubarak to step down from his office, perhaps immediately...and assured protesters "we hear your voices"...Think back now to the summer of 2009 when hundreds of thousands of protesters took to the streets of Washington DC and cities all across this nation to protest the Obama Healthcare Bill that was passed anyway, against the will of the majority of the American people. Did President Obama take to his all powerful, all seeing, presidential podium and say, "we hear your voices"? No, he didn't...In fact, the White House unbelievably declared that it wasn't even aware of the protest rally that received nationwide coverage in advance of the rally. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said, "I don't know who the group is." While the White House has been telling Mubarak to turn on the internet and cell phones, Obama has been working to have the power to turn our internet and cell phones off. It sounds like someone wants to be a dictator just like Mubarak,
