Just one question. What government programs have the Republicans ever terminated? For as long as I can remember their mantra has been slowing the rate of growth.

After three years of adjusting to the new taxes and just prior to receiving some benefit.

Won't be as easy as it looks, due to the growing number of moochers in this place.

It’s not that easy. Look at the bullet-proof majorities the Dems have, and how much trouble they had getting this mess passed. Repubs will have a much smaller majority (if they get a majority at all) and Dems will be able make trouble.

It will be very difficult to repeal this mess without a bullet proof majority, like 60 Repub Senators who will hold the line.

Mike Church hit the nail on the head when he said Progressives have been getting their way since 1913.

Not after the Democrats legalize 50-million illegals just in time for the November elections.

1. Every citizen arms himself and his family members.

2. Every treacherous politician is physically thrown out of office.

3. Everybody is happy.

Which government plan was ever ended? Once in place it’ll destroy the nation.

Dems are going to bring in illegals, allow felons to votes (4 million of them) and do whatever it takes to stay in power. With massive layoffs and tanking economy Dems will be there promising handouts.

How many government programs did the GOP repeal when they controlled the House, Senate and Oval Office just a few years ago? Way too many Republicans have bought into Big Government too - they aren't quite as ambitious with their plans for government meddling, but they'll happily sacrifice free-market principles for a good spot at the feeding trough.

If free-market ideals - and I don't mean the BS lip service paid by way too many GOP blowhards - aren't welcome in the GOP, then it's time for the Tea Party to start fielding candidates.

I think repeal is a pipe dream given it has never happened for anything I can think of outside of Prohibition but this is going to require money to implement isn’t it? Don’t all spending bills originate in the House? Wouldn’t a simple majority there b able to control the spending for it? For example, where would the 17000 new IRS agents come from if the House doesn’t appropriate the funds to hire them?

Not to mention using ACORN (under new names, of course)...And YES, that is the PLAN.

This decision by Congress will have a deep impact. Democrat communists can all go to hell. If they want a fast-track come on over.

Slavery took a war, but repealing Prohibition took action at the Congressional level and 2/3s or 3/4s of the state legislatures to repeal Prohibition.

Nothing cannot be undone. It might not be easy. But it will get done.

I would rather elect a "veto proof" congress...and jam repeal down their throats....(uber long shot).....

...failing that.....get a majority in the House and starve the health care bill to death....just not appropriate any money to fund any part of the health care bill.

Zer0 and his merry band of gay blades will whine and bitch...and threaten to shut down the government...but what the hell...who cares,....given this bunch of criminals?

It will take a 2/3 majority in the House and Senate, as well as a Conservative President who did not put health care in his state. It will also take willingness to take a stand. I cannot see this happening soon. I am not sure enough Americans are awake yet. The taxes will drive some to the Right, but the onerous lack of care will not kick in soon enough.

The Republicans didn’t even get rid of PBS/NPR or the Dept. of Education as they once promised to do. Our last Pubbie President hardly vetoed a single spending bill, while the nation went deeper into debt. The Pubbies alienated the fiscal conservatives among the ranks of the Independents (and there are a lot of them). As it stands now, the next Repub. President might be Romney, creator of his own version of socialized medicine in MA, and a sleek, slimy, treacherous creep. Or Huckabee, who is a liberal on everything except social issues. We are in an almost hopeless position now.

Kind of makes my point. One in 30 years. One out of thousands. I don’t even know what it is. Will probably google.
The thing is they don’t even try. Got to respect Democrats for sticking to their evil principles without regard to electoral ramifications.

I've always thought the right lacked one thing to become the party of principle its got to become - a single galvanizing cause.

Maybe this is it. As p*ssed as everyone seems to be I can't see anyone buying McCain whining on about how 'it can't be done' & 'my friends across the aisle' much longer. This party will very soon lose patience for such ideological flakes.

I hope.

As tho’ we don’t have enough to drive us crazy, how many here know about OFA - Organizing for America - an offshoot of obama’s campaign now in the hands of the Democrat National Committee AND receiving stimulus $$$$.

Who believes we’ll ever beat them when our own taxdollars are used against us?

Absolutely...Zer0 himself has said time after time that "change" is not easy...

...repealing this health care will be at least as hard as passing it.

I am sure that there are clever attempts in this bill to make it so that it cannot be repealed, but there has never been a Congress that was constrained by a previous Congress.

That is why they are numbered....if it was a continuing body, they would not be numbered. Same with the President...there is no order rendered by an given President which cannot be undone by the next President. The sitting President may try to tie down the next President, but it will not work.

It is a fantasy to think the republicans will ever win the majority. I was about 17 when I realized that, every once in a while, in addition to winning a fight, I would have to take an ass-whippin. Step right up. Take your ass-whippin. Go on home.

Socialism never “fails” until it has destroyed its host country. Russia never recovered from Communism, and is now re-Sovietizing rapidly. Even where Socialist Parties have lost power in Europe, the parties which took over have done nothing to undo the welfare state, and they cannot undo the damage from alien immigration. That is what 0bama and the Left are counting on. They know the Republicans are castrati anyway. “The people” (certainly not the taxpaying people) do not control this country any more.

We must urge Jeb Hensarling, John Boehner et al to assume extreme stalling tactics so as to minimize the damage Zer0 and his merry band of gay blades can inflict on us in the next 10 months.

If the election fails, and the 'rats keep the Congress.....it would be a bad outcome....then get your affairs in order so as to minimize your taxes...as a minimum, redo your w-4 so that you pay a little....do not let Zer0 have a penny to use for free.

I fear it’s too far gone, we have only one real political party,based on and living its principles, the Democrat. The United States as it is now constituted may not be able to recover freedom it was founded upon. Time will tell but experience, I think, points toward our 50 states slipping further into Fascism, not pulling back.

And as an added bonus for the leftists, the true and rapidly escalating cost of Obamaserfcare will drain the US economy to the point that it will be used for drastic reductions in defense spending, and the general economic welfare and freedom of the citizenry.

People don't seem to remember that Russia, China, and Vietnam fought bloody civil wars against the Communists. They were not all a bunch of unarmed helpless citizens. The Venezuelan fought Chavez in the streets, and even staged a coup; they lost. The Confederate States were better organized than any Tea Partiers today. They controlled a conterminous block of entire states. A sizable bunch of experienced military leaders defected to them. They claimed to have the 3rd largest economy in the world. They lost too.

One thing the Left knows how to do: Wage total war and kill people. They will not hesitate to turn the full might of the govt. loose on any uprising, but first, they will target all the leaders.

Forget repeal! It’s irrelevant! Any federal version of health care is unconstitutional since Article Section 8 does not specifically grant Congress the power to regulate health care! The people are not bound by any unconstitutional act of Congress! This is what people need to hammer home with their Congress critters!

Without a Republican filibuster-proof majority in the Senate, the odds of this happening anytime in our lifetime are low, like in zero.
