I Have No Problem in Saying “We Told You So”.
So now republicans (small “r”, because they deserve as much respect as a pimple on an ass) are crying “irony”, because of this:
Yeah, so this left-wing jackass is whining because
Rrepublicans aren’t ‘coming to the Slave Party with open arms’, begging their help in ‘fixing’ this bill that’s up for a vote, designed to pound another nail in America’s health care system. Let’s not forget the tactics the Slave Party pulled, when they were pushing and passing ObamaCare.
Rep. Edolphus Towns (D-N.Y.) locked Republicans out of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee room to keep them from meeting when Democrats aren’t present.
Towns’ action came after repeated public ridicule from the leading Republican on the committee, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), over Towns’s failure to launch an investigation into Countrywide Mortgage’s reported sweetheart deals to VIPs.
For months Towns has refused Republican requests to subpoena records in the case. Last Thursday Committee Republicans, led by Issa, were poised to force an open vote on the subpoenas at a Committee mark-up meeting. The mark-up was abruptly canceled. Only Republicans showed up while Democrats chairs remained empty.
Republicans charged that Towns canceled the meeting to avoid the subpoena vote. Democrats first claimed the mark-up was canceled due to a conflict with the Financial Services Committee. Later they said it was abandoned after a disagreement among Democratic members on whether to subpoena records on the mortgage industry’s political contributions to Republicans.
A GOP committee staffer captured video of Democrats leaving their separate meeting in private chambers after the mark-up was supposed to have begun. He spliced the video to other footage of the Democrats’ empty chairs at the hearing room, set it to the tune of “Hit the Road, Jack” and posted it on the Oversight and Government Reform Committee’s minority webpage, where it remained as of press time.
Towns’s staffers told Republicans they were not happy about the presence of the video camera in the hearing room when they were not present. Issa’s spokesman said the Democrats readily acknowledged to Republicans that they changed the locks in retaliation to the videotape of the Democrats’ absence from the business meeting even though committee rules allow meetings to be taped.
Then, let’s not forget this piece of left wing horse crap:
As debate over health-care reform draws to a close, Democratic leaders in the House of Representatives have indicated they may use a little-known procedural rule called “deem-and-pass” to approve health reform. While proponents maintain that “deem-and-pass” is standard legislative procedure, critics suggest that, by using the rule, Dems are trying to pass health-care reform “without [actually] voting on it.” What is “deem-and-pass,” and why are Democrats considering using it? Following, a quick guide:
What is “deem-and-pass”?
Anytime the House considers a bill, the entire body votes on a set of debate rules prior to considering the bill itself. Though “deem-and-pass” is just one of many potential rules, it comes with with a special twist: When it’s approved, the underlying piece of legislation is automatically passed.
Why use it for health-care reform?
Democrats in the House are eager to pass health-care reform, but without directly voting “yes” on the version of the bill the Senate passed in December, which many members find objectionable. They would prefer to cast their “yes” vote for a set of changes that would make that Senate bill more to their liking. That’s where “deem-and-pass” comes in: If the House approves the use of “deem-and-pass” on ObamaCare, Democrats get to skip approving the Senate bill and can jump immediately to voting on ways to (in their eyes) improve it. If the strategy is successful, those improvements will be present in the version of the bill Obama ultimately signs into law.
House may try to pass Senate health-care bill without voting on it
After laying the groundwork for a decisive vote this week on the Senate’s health-care bill, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested Monday that she might attempt to pass the measure without having members vote on it.
Instead, Pelosi (D-Calif.) would rely on a procedural sleight of hand: The House would vote on a more popular package of fixes to the Senate bill; under the House rule for that vote, passage would signify that lawmakers “deem” the health-care bill to be passed.
The tactic — known as a “self-executing rule” or a “deem and pass” — has been commonly used, although never to pass legislation as momentous as the $875 billion health-care bill. It is one of three options that Pelosi said she is considering for a late-week House vote, but she added that she prefers it because it would politically protect lawmakers who are reluctant to publicly support the measure.
“It’s more insider and process-oriented than most people want to know,” the speaker said in a roundtable discussion with bloggers Monday. “But I like it,” she said, “because people don’t have to vote on the Senate bill.”Republicans quickly condemned the strategy, framing it as an effort to avoid responsibility for passing the legislation, and some suggested that Pelosi’s plan would be unconstitutional.
Pardon my ignorance, but am I missing something, here?
Where, in all that, were the Slave Party nobodies running to the (Not So) Grand Ol’ Party for help in improving that unconstitutional piece of shit that they unconstitutionally passed, with the assistance of the “Supreme” Court justices that totally ignored the Constitution? Didn’t that happen?
And, quickly, Booker runs to defend the rate/premium increases that ObamaCare exacerbated, claiming they were happening, anyway.
Health plans sold on Michigan’s insurance exchange could see an average 17.3% increase next year, and if recent history is any guide, state regulators could approve the insurance companies’ rate hike requests without many — if any — changes.
The rate increases would mean a financial hit for taxpayers in general and the 345,000 Michiganders who buy their health insurance on the Healthcare.gov exchange, created under the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
Guess what, Cory. It was the policies of your own party that you sold out to (the SLAVE PARTY) that is, in part, responsible for these outrageous rate hikes, and the NS(GOP) is an accomplice. And, to make it worse, you Slave Party scumbags, knowing what kind of shit sandwich you created, EXEMPTED YOURSELVES, and the OBAMA FAMILY.
And, now, today, with a
Rrepublican majority in both Houses of Congress and a Democratic Republican (http://www.conservapedia.com/index.php?title=Democratic_Republican_Party&redirect=no) in the White House, what do they do?
They push their own version of unconstitutional legislation, designed to further erode – if not destroy – the American health care system.
Rrepublicans have NO INTEREST in doing what’s right. Like Thump, they give ZERO FOXTROTS about that People, the Constitution or doing what’s right.
Thump’s reaction to the little push-back from the NS(GOP)?:
President Trump has told Republican leaders that he’s prepared to play hardball with congressional conservatives to pass the GOP healthcare bill, including by supporting the 2018 primary challengers of any Republican who votes against the bill.
Sources told the Washington Examiner that Trump made that threat in a White House meeting on Tuesday with House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., and other members of the House GOP whip team that helps line up votes.
Trump’s threat is one that could resonate. Most of the Republicans who oppose the GOP’s American Health Care Act represent ruby red districts that strongly support Trump and his agenda.
Therefore, they could be the most susceptible to a midterm primary challenge, especially if Trump tells those voters that their member of Congress is blocking him from fulfilling his promise to repeal President Obama‘s healthcare law.
So his first impulse is to threaten all those who oppose his already imperial presidency. Remember those promises he made about ‘draining the swamp’? That’s precisely what he’s doing. He’s getting rid of the swamp of people that could/would oppose him, and filling it with brown-nosed yes men, just like the ones that used to work for him.
And what does Eddy Munster (Paul Ryan) have to say?
Ryan says there will be a bloodbath, if they (the
Rrepublicans) don’t keep their word. Well, guess what, Eddy? The promise was a complete repeal, not a repeal and replace with something just as bad, if not worse. All the complaining Rrepublicans are doing about the Slave Party (and everyone else) complaining about this piece of legislation amounts to nothing.
You could’ve fought to de-fund ObamaCare. You didn’t.
You lied and said you’d completely repeal this monstrosity. You won’t. Instead, you’ll just tweak it, to make it worse, then strut around telling the world how you polished a turd.
I can’t say, for sure, but it looks highly likely that a ‘bloodbath’ could very well happen, just as it did for the Slave Party, just a few years back.
Rrepublicans could have very well handed the Slave Party exactly what they needed to turn the tables on them:
1: A president that seems to have more of an invested interest in Twitter and intentionally making people angry, than to govern like a statesman.
Sure, he’s done some good things, but he’s looking to completely overshadow them with the bad he promised.
2: Bad legislation that the Slave Party and the New Left can hypocritically complain about, and turn into some rallying cry.
My trumpanzee coworker said he didn’t give a fuck about what the Constitution said, and it’s very clear and apparent that his mentality is what is the norm in the
Rrepublican Party. If the (NS)GOP is pushed back into the minority (and after so short a time as the majority), then you and this Democratic Republican (http://www.conservapedia.com/index.php?title=Democratic_Republican_Party&redirect=no) “president” had better be prepared to see ‘gridlock’ that will make the Obama Regime years look like nothing.
There are constitutional solutions to this situation, but neither the Slave Party, nor the
Rrepublicans are interested in the Constitution, because they are so firmly convinced that they are the law.
One of the worst things for me is that I saw all this coming, with the rest of the Conservatives. However, you can’t talk sensibly to a trumpanzee, because, like any other liberal, they’re just incapable of seeing sense, or talking sensibly. Common sense is not a genetic trait in the liberal, including the liberal trumpanzee. Any trumpanzee that had it would be considered a mutant, and probably killed by his/her peers.
You can’t say anything critical about Thump, or else you’re a liberal…
or a traitor (to someone you were never stupid enough to pledge allegiance to, in the first place). And anything bad Thump does, even if it’s exactly something Obama did, is all A-OK. Why? I guess it’s only bad when a Slave Party member does it.
