Even if the Republicrats were to sweep both houses of Congress, they'd keep voting for every hare-brained big government scheme that showed up.

True dat.

Alaska is a big one for GOP to win the senate seat. They need to spend time and money there.

"You Betcha!"

Run Sarah Run!

A weak kneeded pseudo conservative that believes all the lies about Republicans the MSM spews out and thus they call themselves democraps, but in reality they are more aligned with conservative values, but they just won’t admit it because they buy the whole MSM lie that conservatives and Republicans are evil...

I think your description is pretty accurate! I would add delusional in there somewhere.

We still have a number of "yellow dog" democrats in this area. These are good church-going people and they generally are more conservative than a lot of northeast republicans. They vote democrat because that is what their family has done for generations. I say they are delusional because even when confronted with all that the modern democrat party supports today, they refuse to believe the democrat party is pure evil!

“WTH is a “moderate democrat”?”

Same thing as a moderate republican. In other words, a liberal.

A new lesbian (major gaydar pings back from this one) member of the fox allstars (bigtime rat commie) said last night that all of the scandals were “manufactured scandals that no one cares about”. She also said Detroit was the blame of 60 years of gop economic policies. Krauthammer almost bled from his eyes. He was furious but reserved as this was her first appearance. Rats are all brazen satanists.

This seems to be the season for "serious conversations" about critical issues contributing to the U.S. long slide into oblivion, both economically and socially.

In that spirit I would resurrect the question, the answer to which has never been debated, or discussed or even mentioned at length...

Since we KNOW the Dim-o-crats in Congress did not write the Obamacare Bill, who did? Specifically and completely?

Who was the "consultant?
What was (is) their philosophical social background?
How many individuals were involved directly with the 12,000 pages of economic stupidity?

What are their names?

Why does it matter?
If you need to ask, you have been in a coma for the last 6 years.

I don’t see the voting public running back into the arms of the Dems to provide an even bigger Gvt solution.

Agree on that, what are the odds that Ob and his sycophants will replace all the Medicare funding they syphoned off to pay for their social engineering disaster?

Silly me, that's obviously "Slim & None"... Ah well, there's a half trillion up in smoke. I guess rates will be going up regardless of which way Obamacare goes.

“...WTH is a “moderate democrat”?...”

Well, at first, I was going say there is none. Then, I realized Juan McCain fits this description quite well.
And Bonehead, the crier of the House, isn’t too far behind.

RE :”The law will be gone by the end of January 2014.”

Not a chance.

Obama will pickup up the Clinton tune:
‘Mend it don't end it”

And Hillary will continue it in 2016.

Dems will NEVER vote against the freebees, the taxes and mandates maybe but never the freebees.

I would suggest a two-year delay measure likely to be put up in January and passed by April....well ahead of the November elections. Republicans would buy into the vote, and at least half the Democrats in the Senate would readily agree.

But I would suggest this....if you delay everything two years....then we face this again by 2016, in the midst of a Presidential election. Which idiot Democratic contender would support the healthcare law as it is today? None. Even Hillary has likely some issues with the way it’s structured.

We mustn’t let there be a void, though. We must fill it with free market innovation:

1. medical pros licensed in one state may practice in any of the 50 states (federalism via the CC)

2. health insurance can be sold interstate (ibid)

Those two innovations alone will drop healthcare costs. Much of health care’s expensiveness occurs at the state and local level via laws and regulations limiting medical competition. You cannot open a medical or dental practice without going before a zoning board, why?

It’s illegal to open a private hospital without the state hospital board’s permission, why?

Congress controls the purse. No need for legislation. Budgetary item.
