The DUmmies are quickly losing their faith in The One. Why? Because it looks more and more likely that any health care program that is passed will have NO "public option" which are code words for "single payer" which are code words for "socialized medicine." Actually it is becoming increasingly unlikely that there will be any health care program, other than just some meaningless Happy Face plan for PR purposes only, coming out of Congress this year or anytime in the foreseeable future. As Obama himself said, we have run OUT of money. Also the Chinese holds a major portion of any debt and will look very unkindly on any more inflationary programs being passed. However, the DUmmies just can't face reality and are now predicting that Obama will NOT be re-elected if a "public option" health care program isn't passed as you can see in this THREAD, "I predict that if President Obama does not sign a real Public Option for Health Care into law--one that everyone has the option of purchasing that makes healthcare affordable, where every American is covered, he will not be re-elected." So let us now watch the DUmmies predict Obama's political downfall in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, looking forward to the fireworks when NOTHING happens on the health care program front due to lack of money, is in the [barackets]:
I predict that if President Obama does not sign a real Public Option for Health Care into law--one that everyone has the option of purchasing that makes healthcare affordable, where every American is covered, he will not be re-elected.
[I predict grave disappointment in DUmmieland.]
The base will abandon him if he does not veto any reform bill that isn't universal and affordable.
[Abandon Ship! The S.S. Obama is sinking! And now to the other disappointed DUmmies...]
I'd say that's a pretty good prediction.
[I'd put odds on that one too.]
I won't be "abandoning" Obama...... He will have abandoned me. I will wisely look elsewhere for representation.
We need a Progressive Party now more than ever.
[The Greens and Socialist Workers Parties have their signup booths in the wings.]
I agree .. he has said it would be done repeatedly. He won't be reelected.. without it.
IMO, the 2 hallmarks of the Obama Presidency will be health care reform and the economy. Both will have an effect on every person in the country. Since the economy can be somewhat of a wildcard issue, and the people he has advising him on it seem to want to maintain the staus quo, he needs to get healthcare reform right.
[He FLOPPED on the economy but let us cross our fingers and hope he gets healthcare right by also tossing money at it.]
I do think he lives and dies by the economy.
The economy has been tied directly to a healthcare plan.
[Tying the Porkopulos anchor to healthcare so both can sink together?]
He has hung a lot on health care and seems to be losing the battle. Maybe he has something up his sleeve that will pull it off , remains to be seen.
[Yes, the magician will pull a wascally wabbit from his sleeve and all will be well.]
He's got nothing else. No end to the wars. No end to insanely bloated WAR budgets. No prosecutions for torture or war crimes. Plenty of releasing convicted rethuglican politicians from jail but f*ck Siegleman. Plenty of support for DOMA and DADT. No f*cking clue as to what to do with the economy except shower money on the banks that destroyed it and give them complete control of the destruction via their puppets Geithner and Summers. Throw in unemployment peaking at about 15% next year.
[But, hey, he did make us aware of Five Guys Hamburgers. I actually have one nearby. Must try it out of curiosity. But NOTHING can possibly beat Tommy's Burgers in L.A.. Yummm!]
So yeah, if Obama can't deliver on at least health care, he will not be re-elected. I doubt he will even be able to win the primary. This whole administration is starting to parallel Jimmy Carter's (I love Carter but he was ineffective) and I would expect if Obama can't get health care done properly he is toast. As are we all.
I still fail to see why anyone other than struggling entrepreneurs care about “health care” its better here than any country. I am grateful for my PPO.
"Affordable" to who?
Just say "NO" to drugs.
I am very happy with my HSA, but it would be abolished under Obamacare.
The HSA has both expanded affordability while not restricting choice of care or physician. Maybe that’s why Dems want to get rid of it?
The ignorant left expects health care to be free.
IOW, China will pay for Americans' health care. I don't think China will go along with this...
"Patient is over 65 years of age. Ineligible for any procedure costing more than $ 500."
And AARP backed this Marxist moron? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Good one PJ, good one!
Do I see John Edwards in the middle of that transformation?
“(I love Carter but he was ineffective) “
What a perfect statement of liberal political allegiance.
It is slow because PUF ended over there a while back. I left slowly so as not to draw attention. I have had to de-program myself. Please don’t ask me to go back. I have served my time.
parsy, who is no longer stirring things up on lefty websites.
Really show how clueless DUmmies are. Affordable and universal cannot exist together.
Yes it is. And it should also be stated that Doctors! are the ones who deliver medical care, NOT insurance and not the govt. And we do have the best Doctors in the world. At least for now. Health care is, and always will be, up to the individual, it is their responsibility. Medical care is up to doctors not insurance companies.
