Skip to comments.Very Frustrated Dem Senator Wants Obama to Bypass the Legislative Process on Healthcare!
Posted on 02/15/2010 3:56:37 AM PST by iloveamerica1980
Senator Debbie Stabenow, a guest on the Stephanie Miller Show talks about ramming the healthcare legislation through. 'What if we needed 60 votes for everything" Stephanie asks! Stabenow responds: "Nobody is more frusterated than we are.....This administration can do some things without it being done legislatively and I'm encouraging them to do that as well! She complains that she's spent MONTHS on healthcare but it's only until the recent Scott Brown win that they have hit a legislative "snag". Unfortunately Stabenow was NOT asked what she has been doing for the last year, when her party had the votes to pass it! Now that Brown is in, al of a sudden they have to bypass the legislative process??? (Audio clip at source URL)

Stabenow is one of the worst. Dim dems like her get in line to repeat every talking point the Marxist in chief wants them to repeat.
Michigan deserves better. Michigan will get better.

Jeez I hope you’re right, but the idiots up here keep voting for this toad.
Hello, Michigan patriot—I really think it is only a matter of time for you all. Good luck. I know you all are working hard.
Please passs the tea. I have some open waters where it can be discarded.
Maybe Debbie Stabenow needs to worry more about keeping her husband in line than trying to push socialism onto the American people.
That shouldn’t be too hard...just sit on the poor bastard.
Tennessee has joined several other states in trying to pass a Health Care Freedom Act. NO COLAs for granny, retired Military or retired fed employees. BIG NEW fees for Tricare for Life retired over 65 Military's secondary health ins. (DOD bill already passed, delayed but goes into effect 2011)
New Dem mantra: Woof, woof eat dog food granny....ala let them eat cake.
TRI CARE FOR LIFE This from a google search:
This option would help reduce the costs of TFL, as well as costs for Medicare, by introducing minimum out-of pocket requirements for beneficiaries. Under this option, TFL would not cover any of the first $525 of an enrollees cost-sharing liabilities for calendar year 2011 and would limit coverage to 50 percent of the next $4,725 in Medicare cost sharing that the beneficiary incurred. (Because all further cost sharing would be covered by TFL, enrollees could not pay more than $2,888 in cost sharing in that year.)

Congress plans to block Tricare fee increases
By Rick Maze - Staff writer, Oct 7, 2009
Tricare fee increases imposed last week by the Defense Department will be repealed by a provision of the compromise 2010 defense authorization bill unveiled Wednesday by House and Senate negotiators.
The fee increases were announced on Sept. 30 and took effect on Oct. 1, but the defense bill, HR 2647, includes a provision barring any fee increases until the start of fiscal 2011.
Retired Army Maj. Gen. Bill Matz, president of the National Association for Uniformed Services, said the announcement of fee increases was shocking considering that the Obama administration promised earlier this year to hold off on any new fee Tricare fee increases until fiscal 2011.
President Obama and DoD assured NAUS and the entire military family earlier this year that there would rightly be no increases in any Tricare fees in fiscal 2010, Matz said. We took them at their word, and I cant believe that a co-pay increase like this was allowed to go forward, he added.
Bambi doesn't keep his promises...so buyer beware.
I can't imagine the work it took to pull this off turn up your sound: Born Again American
My fear is that someone on the Dim side will get a clue and stop them from doing this...
