Health Care Lobbyist Throws White Trash Party on Capitol Hill: NASCAR Rednecks Mocked
Maggie's Notebook ^ | 7-10-12 | Maggie@Maggie'sNotebook

Providing "suds and grub" at a townhouse on Capitol Hill, a lobbying firm for Barack Obama's ObamaCare is asking supporters to get "gussied up in your Sunday jorts, mullets, and fullets and come on down to the White Trash Reception." Mocking NASCAR is a big belly laugh with elitists on Capitol Hill.  Sounds racist to me. See a Jack Abramhoff video below.

Lobbyists are gearing-up for a major push, even though many backed-off awaiting the Supreme Court ruling. Considering that not a single Republican voted for ObamaCare, and every Democrat voted for it, how will lobbying be Are they hoping to stop the Repeal vote? Or is this directed at the voter?

The House history of repealing ObamaCare:

To date, the House has voted 30 times to defund, dismantle and repeal the Affordable Care Act. In one of the first acts of the new Republican-controlled House of Representatives 18 months ago, the House first voted to repeal the health care law, January 19, 2011, passing the measure 245-189. At the time, just three House Democrats — Reps. Dan Boren of Oklahoma, Mike McIntyre of North Carolina, and Mike Ross of Arkansas — joined the House GOP in supporting repeal. A month later, repeal failed in the Democrat-controlled Senate 47-51.
Congressman Allen West gets it. It's a tax and a tax that Congress did not vote for or against:
“I don’t think it’s symbolic,” Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., told ABC Monday evening. “Now that we know that the truth is out there that this is a tax, we need to be able to let the American people know where we stand.”
Take a look at this:
Should we expect K Street’s floodgates to open with the Supreme Court’s decision upholding the act’s constitutionality?

Almost certainly, particularly coming in the midst of the presidential election. An early signal is in how many companies and organizations have hired new lobby firms...

They’ve chosen some of Washington’s major players:

DLA Piper has signed on with the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association and MedCo Health Solutions. Blue Cross subsidiaries have also signed with Mehlman Vogel and ML Strategies.

Mercury/Clark & Weinstock is now representing the Federation of American Hospitals.

Ogilvy Government Relations registered this month as a lobby shop for Assurant, Inc.

Alston & Bird is representing Medical Mutual of Ohio and the National Association of Children’s Hospitals.

Bryan Cave registered in April as lobbyists for Centene Corporation.

Fierce, Isakowitz & Blalock is representing Kindred Healthcare.

C2 Group signed with America’s Health Insurance Plans. Partner Scott Styles is a former senior vice president with AHIP...

According to data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics, the insurance industry spent almost $9.8 million last year on lobbying activities. Hospitals and nursing homes spent $20.5 million. Health services and HMOs spent $18.3 million.

I would like any of the few honest journalist to at least call this HC bill what it is. Obama’s CommieCare.

So liking beer, and certain foods or watching NASCAR makes one “White Trash”? Folks the gloves are off and the “N” word should be back in play. I’d use it here but it would get me banned. It is the best word to describe Holder’s people and what they are doing to this country.

It is time for the great Americans, of African heritage to come out of the woodwork and speak up against KWAT (Klan With A Tan). Come on Allen Keyes, Walter Williams, Herman Cain, Charles Payne, C. Rice, etc, start calling these race pimps out in the strongest of language permitted on the airways. The race pimps in this administration are setting back race relations 50 years.

I can attest to what negative feelings these anti-Americans and white hating race pimps have created in my mind.
