CONDITION IS CRITICAL: LIBS

August 18, 2009

WASHINGTON -- Liberal supporters of President Obama were up in arms yesterday over signs from the White House that it was ready to pull the plug on a key aspect of its health-reform plan -- creation of a government-run insurance program.

"You really can't do health reform" without the so-called public option, said Howard Dean, former chairman of the Democratic National Committee and a medical doctor.

In a statement that cited strong House support for a government-run plan, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said, "A public option is the best option to lower costs, improve the quality of health care, ensure choice and expand coverage."

Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.) said, "Opposing the public plan is an endorsement of the status quo in this country that has left tens of millions of Americans uninsured or underinsured and put massive burdens on employers."

Leave “gummit options” to the initiative of individual states, if they must exist at all. This should not even be in the Federal purview.

Won’t be long before the libs will all be needing life support. I’ve got this feeling that a lot of Americans will be showing up at the polls in 2010. They’ve seen what “staying home” will get you and they’ve had enough.

C’mon, 0bama - don’t abandon the whackjobs who got you into office in the first place. Keep digging for your shovel ready health care.

This is a pretty cool moment in history. When people finally woke up and said WHAAAAAAAAT?! A nice by-product is that since health involves everybody and is deeply personal, people are tuned in and realize a total jerk is running the country.

Yeah! I hope you’re right... I am beginning to think that I will not see this kind of change.

The celebratory mood is a bit premature. We are far from being out of the woods. The kenyan can do a lot of damage in the next three plus years.

People need to begin laughing every time he pops his big ears out in public. His ego will be unable to endure that and he will quit the presidency. Then, our problem will be Joe Biden until 2012.

Now we are officially running out of ways to describe how stupid Obamascare is.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said, "A public option is the best option to lower costs, improve the quality of health care, ensure choice and expand coverage."

She actually said that with a straight--albeit, one hopped up on Botox--face?

Liberal legislation is like Jason Vorhees. No matter how many times you kill health care, amnesty, environmental regulation, you’re still going to hear ki-ki-ki-ki, ma-ma-ma-ma-ma when you start to relax.

Paralysis Puss says most things with a straight face these days - the botox is teaming up with Alzheimers.
