Posted on 03/15/2013 5:52:54 PM PDT by Nachum
House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) warned his Republican counterpart on Friday that the GOP will have no hope of finding bipartisan agreement on any issue if it continues to insist on repealing the 2010 healthcare law. "If we want to do something in a bipartisan fashion, if we want to get to an end here, we ought to stop pretending that we´re going to repeal the Affordable Care Act," Hoyer told Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.). "We had an election about that. We won. The president won." Hoyer´s comment

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
You wish, Hoyer. We’re going to make you all vote FOR Obamacare as many times as we can. Then, as more and more suffer under this stupid law, we’re going to use your votes to smash your faces in come election day.
the way they rammed it through shows they didn’t give two libtard shits about bipartisanship.
fight to the death. fock you hoyer.
This guy is a coward. The new census results came in and his district in Maryland ~ mostly Prince George's County ~ had suddenly become MAJORITY BLACK.,
My old buddy Leroy Warren and some of his black political friends over there saw the results and went to Stenny and told him that "it's time brother ~ get a new district" ~ meaning that they were taking over the local Democrat machine and putting a black man into office.
Stenny MOVED ~ and the legislature made sure he had enough white Democrats to keep him in office for many years.
Basically Stenny Hoyer is a cowardly racist of the worst sort.
Republicans that make deals with Hoyer and his crowd are doing the devil's own work.
I can’t remember the last time the Democrats crossed the aisle in a bipartisan manner. Stupid Republicans do it all the time, but Democrats? Never.
In other words, he expects the Republicans to follow his definition of “bipartisan fashion”, which means rollover and do what we say.
Statements like this from Hoyer show us what they are really afraid of.
Attack, and do not relent.
Of course, with Boehner and McConnell, well, you know.......
“Then, as more and more suffer under this stupid law, were going to use your votes to smash your faces in come election day.”
This is EXACTLY why they need to keep pushing repeal. The list of those Dems voting for it will be long, and will be the nails in their political coffins.
O’Reilly was just preaching this garbage that the GOP needs to lighten up on the O-care rhetoric.
Yeah, I saw that. Bill can go write another book.
Just saw Steve King is coming up on Hannity. Should be interesting to hear from him.
We’re not trying to overturn it, just defund it....
Stenygoguing the issue. Would this be the only politics that Hoyer knows?
...and the horse you rode in on, Steny.
Ah, but will the GOP stick to its guns ? A precious few will, but a good number of them have become collaborators.
Again with this ‘we won’ juvenile taunt.
Is that some code for bipartisan in his alternate universe, I mean you just can’t be any more contradictory in one short sentence!
Steny “I’m a legend in my own warped mind” Hoyer is one of the key members of Congress who helped repeal the Walter-McCarren Act of the Immigration & Naturalization Act that kept communists/sympathizers and terrorism supporters out of the US (in the late 1980s - along with Ted Kennedy, Barney Frank and Pat Moyniham).
Steny, the House had an election too and WE won. Get over it.
Another elitist communist heard from.
One thing about it, they’re all “out of the closet” now.
He’s licking his chops for Nov 2014.
The regime is converting the (successful) Obama campaign machine to attack the midterm elections.
They were way overconfident in 2010 and got ambushed.
Doesn’t look like we can do that twice.
I found this from the graveyard of favorite protests. Where are the “folks” now? This is more than the old. God bless them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qre7DzEtxyc
Sorry an ad always shows up.
It would appear the liberals don't like it when the shoe is on the other foot, while they like to dish it out, but, can't take it when it it handed to them in spades!!!!!
If Commiecare can't be repealed, what in the hell is the socialist worried about? Sounds to me like the more the American people don't like commiecare, the more pressure is being applied for the liberal socialist to repeal it, and that, the can never do, some of the liberal socialist have worked for more than fifty years to push this down the throats of the American people and that would be a great loss to them.
I think you are wrong.
And the even more cumbersome income tax code that continues to metastasize is a perfect counterpoint.
Washington DC is powered by attorneys and bureaucrats who feed on complexity.
If that is the only option, so may it be. Libs had best be careful what they wish for.
You are not calculating in the “gun grab” effect. The pain of continued high taxes, growing unemployment (real numbers), hungry followers, financial collapse and exposure that is coming for these traitors.
God help your people in the United States.
We’ll use the same tactic on gun control and lowering taxes.
That would be logical...but our *leaders* don't have that kind of spine. Maybe Ted Cruz will fire back with this, though!
You could say it's bifurcated.
Sure, it's got a lot of cr*p in it but the overwhelming majority of taxpayers are never affected by much of it, and those who are affected by the more obscure parts know all about it and have their tax layers on the case 24/7.
ObamaKKKare is a tad different. First of all, it has a large number of very complex sections that apply to everybody, and a few relatively simple sections that apply to a favored few.
At this moment there are NO EXPERTS in ObamaKKKare ~ not in the agencies, not in the private sector, not among lawyers, not among its victims.
We are in a transition period where people are finding out what all the nonsense in the bill is about. For example, the Kaiser-Permanente group(s) imagined they could keep up with all this, but internally all of their specialists are running for the specialty areas and abandoning general practice. Used to be (like in December) Kaiser could make it all work together because their specialists all carried an extra burden of general practice ~ handy for patients/customers, and handy for doctors bored with their specialty.
Under ObamaKKKare it's not worth the hassle for Kaiser docs to try to keep up with that sort of practice ~ so they aren't ~ right now I"m looking through a list for a doctor whose native language is English. Looking grim.
..... Strangely .... I actually agree with Hoyer .... but not in the manner he is speaking. I believe that we can get rid of the infernal so called "Affordable Healthcare Law" by not actually getting rid of it. The process would be rather simple. Instead of using the "Repeal it NOW" argument ..... Just change the verbage on the debate and appeal to people on both sides of the isle. Instead of approaching the argument from a negative ... "All or Nothing" stance ... make it sound much more palatable and with a seemingly level headed common sense point of view.
.... Here is how I would word the argument .... "During this time of extreme financial stress .... It would not be prudent to allocate so much of a percentage of this country's economy towards the Affordable Healthcare Law .... and therefore, I feel that it would be best at this time to put the Healthcare Bill on the back-burner and shelf it until the country's financial footing becomes much more stable to the point that we could afford to institute it." (Of course the intention would be to never let the Bill see the light of day again ... but they don't need to know that}
.. ..... Of course .... I Don't know if that argument would actually work .... but at least it doesn't sound like the usual and constant "Grumpy Cat" drone of the GOP that is constantly portrayed in the MSM. And FYI .... I have used that same argument while talking with some on Hollywood's biggest elites .... and have actually gotten them to agree with me on that point LOL.
.... Any way ... that is my two cents worth .... you may now rejoin your weekend activities which are now already in progress ....
We'll stop this right now like you are demanding! (End sarcasm)
Well Mr. Hoyer - there is no hope of balancing the budget and reversing the damage the 'healthcare' law has done and will continue to do without - nor any reason to take you seriously in any discussion about balancing the budget if this is not considered. And bipartisanship with the methods used to ram this through and strongarm and intimidate your own members to get it passed - even threatening to just "deem" it to be passed when it did not have he votes on the floor? That sort of "bipartisanship", Mr. Hoyer.
“We had an election about that. We won. The president won.”
We did have an election about Obamacare, or at least Massachusetts did. They opted against by replacing Old Man Kennedy with All But Useless Man Brown. 2010 was about Obamacare, too, in part. You remember, when Pubs retook the House and Congress passed it anyway, though I’m still not sure how.
Which means they should redouble these efforts.
Hey, Spendy, how about you abandon your efforts to raise taxes?
"...we ought to stop pretending that we´re going to repeal the Affordable Care Act," Hoyer told Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.). "We had an election about that. We won. The president won."#1, bulls-, and #2, Zero also won saying he'd close GTMO, end the wars, bring home the troops, and revive the economy. He lied, and continues to lie.
Unfortunately, the election wasn't about Obamacare, the GOP running the only candidate who was unable to make it into the issue it should've been.
Had the election been about Obamacare, the Democrats would've lost.
Does Hoyer drink? He always looks to me like he’s half in the bag.
I hope you are right but fear you are wrong.
Then entire culture of the DC beltway feeds on complex law and regulation.
Didn’t they hire 15,000 highly paid IRS agents just to administer Obamacare?
Hoyer warns GOP to abandon efforts to repeal healthcare law
That means that the GOP should redouble their efforts to repeal Obama Care!!!! STAT!
Stimpy Hoyer warns the majority.
Maryland “Freak State” PING!
Perhaps he should talk to his Boss Obama before saying such things. We already know we have no hope of finding bipartisan agreement on any issue because Obama does not want to put his name on anything.
We have already offered him everything he claimed to want and had his goal post numerously move. Obama does not want bipartisan period.
In any-case accepting that abomination is too high a price, i will not surrender my liberty for anything.
hahah its not like Hoyer has anything to offer. The Democrats have as little interest in bipartisan compromise as they do in our liberty.
Quaking in my boots.
Wall, blindfold, cigarette.
he and cry baby need to RESIGN! WEAK KNEED IDIOTS. We here at FR could do a better job with the budget than they do, and many of us are just HS educated where they have had the benefits of college...no it’s their LIBERALISM that is the ISSUE.
They DO NOT WANT TO FIX ANY THING, IT MIGHT MEAN CUTTING ONE OF THEIR PET PROJECTS. All they need do is tell them we are spending not a dime more than in 2012. What about them taking a pay CUT for once and go on BC/BS with premiums like the rest of us TAX SLAVES!
Force all federal employees to pay their Income Taxes at the time they get paid, and this includes Charley Rangel who owes a Million bucks, fire and/or fine all of them at the very least. GARNISHMENT of salary to the IRS until tax debt is paid. If they can do it for child support, they can do it for income tax evasion which is a crime in it’s self. Which is why they sent a lot of CW singers to prison along with the likes of Wesley Snipes.
They have to live under the same laws they foist on us or we might as well have never fought the Revolutionary War, we are back to a 2 tier caste system.
