On radio show, Massa says Dem leaders railroaded him because he voted against ObamaCare
The Washington Examiner ^ | Mar. 8, 2010 | David Freddoso

Posted on 03/08/2010 5:13:55 AM PST by The Old Hoosier

Rep. Eric Massa, D-N.Y., under investigation for alleged sexual harassment of a male staffer, accused House Democratic leaders of lying about the charges against him and using them to run him out of Congress because he voted against health care reform when it last came before the House.

Roll Call reports this morning that on the local radio show he hosts in his district, Massa said he had not been informed of the sexual harassment allegations before they became public. He claimed that Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., spoke falsely when he said he had brought the matter to him previously, Massa said. “Steny Hoyer has never said a single word to me, at all, ever, not once," Massa said. "Not a word. This is a lie. It’s a blatant, false statement."

Why bring out the popcorn? Do you really think the MSM is going to let anyone hear this? Do you think he will be on the morning shows? The Sunday shows? The news in general?

Massa will be lucky if he is able to get an audiance with his mother at this point. The corrupt MSM will bury him.

Ann Coulter on Fox - comparing the MSM sitting on the Foley scandal until it hurt the GOP elections...while the Massa scandal is *out* early enough for the DEMs to recover.

Additionally, all of Foley’s emails were published ad nauseum - while we still do not know precisely what activity Massa is accused of.

THe more practical question is this: how long will it be before the Dems can come up with a replacement... or can this district be taken from them in a special election?

Anyone surprised?

This was an obvious scam against this congressman from the start.

The person making the charges had been fired a while back and was willing to do the wrong thing.

Why didn't he hang in there??? Or he could have become a Republican and gotten enough attention for the story to be able to publicly defend himself.

According to Dick Morris, there is another no vote who miraculously had a federal investigation against him dropped by Holder and now guess what? He's a YES! Gee, what principles. ME FIRST.

Massa is a liberal moonbat; in fact, he voted against Obamacare because it wasn’t liberal enough. Maybe he could switch to the Greens, but that wouldn’t do him much good, either.

A special election is necessary for House seats. As the district is the most conservative in NY State (in an Upstate district), it’s highly unlikely that this stays in Dem control.

Whether it becomes an R seat before the health care vote is unlikely - as Gov. Paterson (D) controls the date of the special election.

Massa is a liberal moonbat; in fact, he voted against Obamacare because it wasn’t liberal enough.

Massa explains vote on health bill

During months of debate on health care reform leading up to Saturday, Massa declared early on that he would not support the bill as written. Massa, one of 39 Democrats to vote against the bill, predicts it will not pass the Senate.

Massa said one of the reasons he voted against the health care bill was that it would have raised local property taxes by at least 3 percent by increasing the income eligibility for Medicaid.

Also, the bill would not fully make the insurance market competitive and unfairly required that Americans buy insurance or face penalties, he said.

Instead, of the massive comprehensive overhaul that the House bill seeks, Massa said health care should be reformed gradually.

Massa’s challenger in the 2010 election, Republican Tom Reed, has criticized the bill but said Massa’s vote was misleading.

“Eric Massa voted against this bill because it does not have enough government control in it. In his ideal world, he would eliminate private health care altogether,” Reed said.

I'm with you, I agree with Tom Reed. Of course Massa goes back to his conservative district with an editorial saying it raises taxes. But after he went to the Kos Konvention in Pittsburgh and claims he will adamantly vote against the interests of his district, guessing which way he would eventually go is a no-brainer.

Am I missing something? Nothing in the article tells us why it became necessary for him to RESIGN today. Why didn’t he just keep his seat until his term ends?

Are we supposed to be more shocked at the charges against Massa than with Rangle’s corrupt misdeeds? Do they expect us not to notice that the Ethics Committee moved at lightening speed to coerce Massa but took over a year to lightly admonish Rangle for just one of his multiple criminal misdeeds? I DON’T THINK SO!

The Constitution provides that the Executive shall, Patterson can't leave the seat vacant until the next election rolls around. There's very little leeway, I suppose Patterson could put it off until a health care reform vote is scheduled, but open until August, worse, November? No.

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

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.

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

Massa also described a profanity-filled conversation he had with White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel after he voted against the president’s health care legislation last year. Massa called on Emanuel to resign for his own use of profane language during the phone call.

“Rahm Emanuel is son of the devil’s spawn,” Massa added. “He is an individual who would sell his mother to get a vote. He would strap his children to the front end of a steam locomotive.”

it was from one of those Dick Morris emails. Looks like i was wrong about him being a no vote originally but the rest of the story is right:

“But there is a reward waiting for House members who ignore the wishes and interests of their constituents and vote for Obama’s health care proposals. Alan Mollohan has had a pesky FBI investigation hanging over his head for a few years. Now, presto, right before the health care vote, it went away. The Justice Department, headed by Attorney General Eric Holder, announced that the FBI was closing the inquiry.

Mollohan’s sin? He pushed for earmarks for nonprofit enterprises in his district and then went into a real estate deal in Florida with the head of the company under financial terms that were distinctly favorable to the Congressman. But Mollohan toes the party line and is now getting his unjust reward.”

BTW, this email from Morris was where I read for the first time that the Massa “scandal” was orchestrated by his rat leadership.
