Democrat says repealing ObamaCare a 'wet dream' for Republican radicals
The Hill ^ | September 20, 2013 | Pete Kasperowicz

Freshman Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) on Friday accused Republicans of pursuing a "wet dream" by pushing for the repeal of ObamaCare as part of a short-term spending bill.

"I rise in strong opposition to this radical right-wing effort to walk our economy off of a cliff and cause a government shutdown," Swalwell said in today's debate. "I invite my colleagues on the other side to wake up from this radical, ideological wet dream, and come back to reality."

Swalwell might be the first member to use the phrase "wet dream" on the House floor — at the very least, it appears to be the first time it has been said in more than two decades. Based on a search of the Congressional Record dating back to 1989 — the earliest year that congressional records can be viewed electronically — the term "wet dream" appears only once.

That appearance was in 1996, when a senator inserted an article from Climbing Magazine that used the term.

Like other Democrats, Swalwell pointed out that Republicans have tried dozens of times to repeal ObamaCare, and argued that all of them would fail given Democratic opposition in the Senate and White House.

So, here we have a Californication RATZ telling the rest of the NATION what HE thinks.

Californication is going to be split into several autonomous regions, and broken down into entirely new states.

And this dim wit will be the catalyst for that break up.

And this is the guy who replaced Pete Stark?

I was forced to vote for him because of California's crazy "top 2" elections.

Due to redistricting, Pete Stark's district was moved north to include Pleasant, Dublin, and parts of San Ramon. Stark used to represent Fremont, Milpitas, and Union City. Swalwell was the Democrat mayor of Dublin.

Swalwell ran as a centrist, but he's talking like an Obamacare radical now.

That from Miley Cyrus wing of the California Democrat Party.

OCare was passed by liberal-progressive radicals and ideologues.

My question is, if the Supreme Joke ruled Obamacare as a tax, why not simply repeal the tax? Probably a dumb question.

“Democrat says repealing ObamaCare a ‘wet dream’ for Republican radicals”

And I am sure that this A$$hat is an absolute expert on wet dreams, speaking from his extensive personal experience.

Democrat senators are scared to go on the record voting for Obamacare.

I wonder if...

...the Democrat plan might be to pass a CR funding the government at 4xissting levels (including Obamacre).

Then send it to Obama for signature, simply ignoring the House resolution -- arguing they can do this because the Senate is the "superior" House of Congress. The President would support them, of course -- lawlessness being his favored way of operating.

Would they, could they get away with it -- given the media and the bureaucratic establishment would support them, as well?

Who would stop them...???

It’s always sex with liberals. They can’t seem to think outside their pants; primal thinkers.

Keep reminding people that 67% in several polls were against it when it was voted on!

What’s worse?, letting the government shut down over a policy dispute where the public is clearly on your side, or blinking when the heat comes up and the MSM starts calling you names and you prove that you never ever had the courage of your convictions.

The Dims bring so much decorum to the governance. Time to spray DC down with RAID, soak it in gasoline and sterilize it for a fresh start. It should then be spread out among the States and the sterilized area left fallow for the next 100 years.
