Yahoo News ^ | 08./05/2009 | BEN FELLER and RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR

WAKARUSA, Ind. – President Barack Obama said Wednesday he's determined to get an overhaul of the health care system before the end of the year and, if necessary, without bipartisan support.

His comments reflected a growing sense among Democrats that they may have to carry the legislation to expand coverage and try to control medical costs with votes from lawmakers of their own party — or at best a handful of Republicans.

Memo to Obama - THE GOP CANNOT STOP THIS. AND MOST PEOPLE REALIZE SUCH. THE KEY DISSENT IS WITHIN YOUR OWN RANKS.

No matter how much the public HATES this, by all polling sources, he will DECREE this into existance.

FUBO.

This is a joke. He isn’t going to get any Republican support for government healthcare - he never was, not even Snowe and Collins were on board. The fact of the matter is, Obama doesn’t even have Democrats on board here. THAT’S where his problem lies.

Proof that his call for bipartisanship is a one way street. The GOP must go along with the Dems, but the Dems don't need the GOP. Nice.

Thing is, there at least 40 dims in the house and another 5-6 in the senate that won't vote for this...in any form...without GOP cover.

God bless you for your efforts. I think there was a post here about the Chamber of Commerce in AR was trying to get eople to show up for a fund raiser for Blanche Lincoln and was getting no takers.

Dems in southern, midwestern and a few others states have to be terrified of Obama’s DeathCare.

Exactly.

He could enact every Socialist wet dream he’s ever had without a single Republican vote, yet he’s constantly crying about not having their support.

The tireless search for a future scapegoat continues...

It will be loud and clear that the majority of people in this country will oppose this. Yet, a small group of radicals will be pushing this thing regardless.

I would not be surprised if several governors will invoke state powers and ignore the healthcare if it “passes”.

What’s he going to do, impose it by Executive Order???

Would there even be any resistance from the other two branches? I’m really beginning to wonder about the limits of his arrogance and the patience of the American people.

Now, THAT’S what I’m talkin’ ‘bout! The DhimmiRats MUST own this garbage. If the pubbies are to ever regain any shred of credibility, they need to keep shoving this in the faces of all the LibTards. The pubbies need to make sure that the people know this is a purely DhimmiRat plan. They’d ought to own it, lock, stock and barrel.

Give ‘em as good as they’ve given for the past 50 years or so.

It’s time to take back the country.

Ah. You noticed that too.

$2.5 billion for “electric cars” without any Congressional authorization of any kind whatsoever, drawn directly and without any backtalk or discussion or debate from Zer0’s personal “economic stimulus” blank checkbook.

Thanks a lot, Congress.

I was willing to give BO the benefit of the doubt but the first meeting with R’s when he said ‘I won’, you knew where this was going.
Capital Strike
Starve the Beast
Slow Roll
Many others ways to choose from. Just because they ‘pass’ the bill doesn’t mean you don’t still have a choice.

Is he referring to Schumer’s suggestion that they will vote WITHOUT Republicans? If so, how can they lose? (not sure how that works)
