Skip to comments.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.
Time to pull the john galt trigger.
No surprise. Knew it would be an option if “bi-partisanship” could not be obtained.
Obama sure likes the word “I” alot. I think it stands for two-bit tin pot.
Are we gonna have to go BACK to DC???
Show down at the OK Corral folks. Any bets on who’s gonna blink first ?
If it can happen to Marsha Coakley,it can happen to...*any*....RAT.
Planned all along....ever since he could not get the votes with a Democratic Party domination of the House and Senate. FAIL!
Vote every one of the bastards who support this out of office when they come up for re-election. Time to make them pay for thumbing their noses at the will of the American people.
They wanna play, they’re gonna pay.
ACT OF WAR
Obama is a Chicago Thug . .no question about it.
Obama is running scared and has to do as much damage to the US as he can. He hates America. Just wait until a pic is leaked of him wearing his crown. Go away boy wanna be king.
We really do need to strip these idiots of all government benefits after we remodel DC.
Time to get out the pitchforks.
It will be time to pull the lever and vote all of these anti-Americans out of office...there I said it...Obama is anti-American...he is against the Constitution, against the will of the people and worst of all a hypocritical smoker!
“Are we gonna have to go BACK to DC???”
Yes, I don’t think we can wait for 4/15. We are rapidly slipping into the abyss.
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.
The real nuclear option would be the Senate getting rid of the cloture rule.
He seems to have forgotten these words:
“and that government: of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
Let loose the Kraken.
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.
Sooo...Is Obomba say this (reconciliation) to give cover to Pelosi and Reid....cause....I don’t know where he has the power (supposedly) to initiate it....
Yeah, but Barry has friends...
Indeed, this IS the Chicago way. Look forward to more of the same as long as he’s in office. Immigration “reform” is next.
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.
More like let loose the Crackhead.
They will get paid their salary and full benefits for life and not have to lift a finger.
Nothing new...Bring it on!!!
Dems are despicable.
I maintain that we have already gone over the cliff, we just haven’t hit bottom yet.
“Let him talk tomorrow, then all hell needs to break loose.”
This needs to be the mother-of-all marches.
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.
Hes determined to force a vote ASAP. Let him talk tomorrow, then all hell needs to break loose.
Yep......they are leaving us no choice. Gonna start looking for a bus........
Call your reps and Senators 202-224-3121
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.
No. The real nuclear option would be getting rid of Washington.
NOW - NOW - NOW - NOW !!!!
I know you taught con-law but might I remind your A-holeship that you have NO authority, not legal authority, not political authority.... And certainly no moral authority to tell the Senate to do ANYTHING !
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:
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 enrollees 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
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.
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 cant believe that a co-pay increase like this was allowed to go forward, he added.
That should be the mantra. Obama and Reid going.... Nuclear.
It remains to be seen if the Democrats are ready to sacrifice their careers for this power grab.
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.
