President Obama to Say Democrats Will Use Reconciliation to Pass Senate Health Care Reform Fix....

Posted on 03/02/2010 4:26:11 PM PST by RED SOUTH

White House officials tell ABC News that in his remarks tomorrow President Obama will suggest that if it is necessary, Democrats will use the controversial "reconciliation" rules requiring only 51 Senate votes to pass the "fix" to the Senate bill, as opposed to the 60 votes to stop a filibuster and proceed to a vote on a bill.

No surprise. Knew it would be an option if “bi-partisanship” could not be obtained.

we need to remind every RAT in the House that there aren't enough $250K/yr jobs at the EPA for *all* of them so if they want to continue drawing a government paycheck they had better heed the will of their constituents.

If it can happen to Marsha Coakley,it can happen to...*any*....RAT.

Interesting that he made this decision right after that albino from SEIU came to the White House....what's his name...I forgot.

This is them playing a Saul Alinsky rule..."Get in their face"...when is what he is doing to the American People.

He's drawn his line in the sand....

No problem, in 4 years if things go right then the republicans can use the “nuclear option” to undo a whole lot of rat nonsense, that is if they have the guts (oh well it was a nice thought for about a minute).

Not only that, but keep track of those who whored for it - individuals, corporations, and organizations - and make 'em howl. You can "vote" with your feet and your wallet.

April 15 is too late. Obama isn’t going to risk letting Congress go home for Easter and face their consitutents. Remember what happened when they went home last summer and got an earful?

He’s determined to force a vote ASAP. Let him talk tomorrow, then all hell needs to break loose.

After the direct repudiation in Massachusetts, can anyone imagine the MSM coverage if any GOP President tried this crap? He would be condemned and run out of town.

When you call members of Congress, suggest you call your local MSM affiliates as well.

He is going to get a big surprise, I think.

Not as many Democrats are as anxious to commit suicide as Pelosi and Reid think there are.

Go ahead Bama-boy take your shot, You lose either way.

If it passes the Democrats are dead ducks come November and Obama has no power for the last 2 yeasrs. If it doesnt pass his power is already shot and the Democrat party is split.

Take the shot then Shut up fool.

They do not read email. Call them and beg friends and relatives to call. We can kill this in the House if we rise up and make them feel the heat.

Obama WANTS the RATS to lose Congress in November. His only remote shot at re-election is if he can create an enemy of the GOP Congress - like Clinton did.

Hopefully enough vulnerable RATS will recognize that Obama’s needs do not align with their own.

When are we going to get to the part when one of our leaders calls this what in the hell it really is?

REPARATIONS. This is little more than Obama stealing from those that earned it and giving it to those that refuse to get off of their dead lazy asses and earn it.

My rule: Trip and I will try to help you stand. Trip me and I will kick you in the face. Yes, I sound ornery, but it’s time to get ornery... talking hasn’t done a damn thing.

Yes, it sucks to be poor, it sucks to live in black ghettos, but those folks seldom lift a finger to dig their way out of those holes. I applaud those that rise by way of their hard work, but the rest can drop dead for all I care.

Obama is opening a box that he will not be able to close.... I don’t care how much of a Magic Negro he is.

Dear God get that arrogant trash out of my White House.

TRI CARE FOR LIFE This from a google search:

http://economicspolitics.blogspot.com/2009/05/tricare-for-life-is-obama-trying-to.html

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 enrollee’s 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.) http://www.cbo.gov/ftpdocs/99xx/doc9925/12-18-HealthOptions.pdf

Congress plans to block Tricare fee increases

http://www.navytimes.com/news/2009/10/military_tricarefees_blocked_100709w/

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.
Snip 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.

Snip

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 can’t believe that a co-pay increase like this was allowed to go forward,” he added.

"Mr. Obama will say that he will be working on exact legislative language in the next few days. Republicans can join him and Democratic congressional leaders of the House and Senate to makes these changes and to pass the bill, but either way the bill will be moving forward."

This kenyan fascist loves to talk like a dictator. His smug arrogant comment of "you can join us if you want, if not Im going forward in violation of the 10th Amendment and the will of the people anyway" speaks volumes. He is going to try to shove socialism down our throats like he is some latin american dictator.
