Obama to Congress: ‘Knock it Off’on Budget Brinkmanship [Little Man Turns to Arrogance]
Time ^ | 9/27/13 | Charlotte Alter

Posted on 09/30/2013 5:56:05 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

Obama told Republicans Friday that it’s a fool’s errand for them to use the threat of a government shutdown to gut his signature healthcare law, decrying what he called “political grandstanding” that is hurting the American economy.

With Republicans seeing both the looming expiration of government funding and the need to increase the country’s borrowing limit as pressure points to extract political concessions on the healthcare law, the president said bluntly: “I said that yesterday and I’m gonna repeat it: that’s not gonna happen.”

“A lot of what is taking place right now is political grandstanding,” Obama told reporters at the White House, “but the grandstanding has real affects on real people. … It would throw a wrench in the gears of the economy, just as those gears are beginning to get traction,” he said.

The president also said that raising the debt ceiling is essential for maintaining American economic growth and global reputation.

“Raising the debt ceiling is simply authorizing the Treasury to pay for what congress has already authorized,” he said. “I will not negotiate over Congress’ responsibility to pay the bills that have already been racked up.

“Voting for the Treasury to pay America’s bills is not a concession to me,” he said. “Nobody gets to threaten the full faith and credit of the U.S. just to extract political concessions. … Knock it off, pass a budget, and move on.

He’s a really tough man to the weenies in the GOP, but he’s afraid of the battle-ax back at the White House.

Obama to House GOP:’:”You know what we offer you for your CR ? We give you nothing. Not one concession. And you can pay for our health care too.”

Reminds me of Godfather

_____________________

Obama has found it very easy to advance his narrow ideological agenda of failure-prone Marxism.

4 years after Obama conned his Democrats into passing the Federal takeover of the cash cow of Medical Insurance, the PC, Doormat Republicans are finally timidly suggesting defunding that Federal takeover.

Without the weak, PC, Doormat Republicans Boehner and McConnell being stupidly kept in their respective leadership positions by truly cowardly House and Senate Members, Obama Medical Insurance “Care” Takeover would have been defunded long ago.

The primal yearning of the 47 % who pay no personal Federal Income tax is to belong to a tribe where all of their choices are dictated to them by their arrogant tribal leader.

This a common trait of those who have low self-esteem.

In that sense, Obamanation is truly a cult: low self-esteem people believing everything their cult leader tells them, no questions asked.

Freedom is defined in the dictionary as follows:
1.) Exemption or liberation from slavery or imprisonment.
3.) Liberty of choice or action.

Most of the 47 % riding in the “free” wagon seek out slavery, and lack of personal choice.

They thus feel safe, and secure in the knowledge that “this is as bad as it is going to get.”

Liberty is defined in the dictionary as follows:
1.) The state of being exempt from the domination of others or from restricting circumstances; freedom.
5.) The power of voluntary choice: freedom from necessity.
6.) Individual Liberty: Freedom from restraint in the performance of rights outside of government control.

Most people who are getting a free ride in the wagon where 47 % pay no personal Federal Income Taxes, are terrified of making a voluntary choice.

The 47 % would prefer that they be under government control where the choices are made for him.

All of this societal wussiness has made it very easy for B. Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, to advance his narrow ideological agenda of European-style, failure-prone, Marxism in spite of PC, Doormat Republican token “opposition.”

BTW, unlike taxes, Federal Obama ‘care’ Insurance charges can be increased EVERY YEAR to whatever % the present and future arrogant leaders of Obamanation wants.

BTW, BTW, the free-loading 47 % will always vote for the Candidate for POTUS approved by Obamanation.
_________________________________

The question to be asked is: “If it is in the Nation’s best interest to shut down the Government, then why are there only TWO Federal Politicians, Obama and Reid, loudly advocating shutting down the US Federal Government?

Obama has MANY reasons to shutdown the Federal Government such as:

1.) A headline grabbing story that will distract attention from the Impeachable scandals of:

Benghazi Massacre Dereliction of Duty by Obama as CIC;
Obamacare Insurance managed by the corrupt IRS;
IRS harassment of political opponents of Obama;
Use of the NSA by Obama to spy on everybody in the USA;
etc, etc.

2.) The use of fear of a shutdown might help to protect defunding and eventual abolishment of Obama’s narrowly focused ideological agenda of an European-style, failure-prone, Marxist, monopoly of the US Medical Insurance Industry.

3.) Spreading fear and blame might also preserve Obama’s power to increase Obamacare Insurance premiums on an annual basis.

*This would be highly advantageous to Obama as the increase in mandatory insurance premiums would not be a tax, as the “unexpected market conditions” would be given as the reason for the increase.

*Also there would be no need to ask for the “Advice and Consent” of Congress, as the IRS would be in complete control of all income and medical records.

4.) The last reason is the most important for Obama, personally: America would at last no longer be a Nation where the Liberty to choose one’s own family destiny could ever exist again.

As for Reid, the best guess I have is that he wants a Government Monopoly of the Medical Insurance Industry. Well, to be fair, Reid calls for a “single payer” system.

My suspician is that multi-millionaire Reid, nearing Federal retirement, owns a lot of stock in some companies that are tied to a “single payer” system.

Maybe the NSA, or the IRS can find out for us?

I’m going to ask my US Senator from TEXAS, The Esteemed Senator John “To Hell with my voters” Cornyn to check on this for me - - - .

… It would throw a wrench in the gears of the economy, just as those gears are beginning to get traction,” he said.

Sadly, obama's understanding of the economy is no better than his understanding of basic mechanics. Gears don't have "traction" - they are either engaged and meshing or not. Traction refers to the transfer of force via friction.

“I will not negotiate over Congress’ responsibility to pay the bills that have already been racked up.

Yes, you will. You will stop "racking up" those bills.

“Nobody gets to threaten the full faith and credit of the U.S. just to extract political concessions. … Knock it off, pass a budget, and move on.

That includes you, you condescending little POS.

Actually the "political grandstanding" is by the Democrats! The vast majority of the people have spoken through the House of Representatives. As a result the lawless Democrats are telling the people of this country that they are fools for asking for what they want, and for what they elected the lawmakers to do. The Democrats continue to defy the people of the USA.

We shall see soon enough which is correct! Doubling down and losing could affect the Democrats for years to come!

DR BEN CARSON ... the freedom of Americans to control their own health care needs is being threatened by massive governmental interference....an attempt to fundamentally change America, to take control of our most important possession: our health.....

We're mad as h*** and we're not gonna take it any more. Get going, Freepers.

TALKING POINTS Obama/crats are attempting to tax, gather data, and otherwise collapse what remains of the private healthcare delivery system. Obamacare is not about healthcare or even insurance coverage, it is about centrally controlling from DC every aspect of your life.

Your doctor will be their informant on how you live, work and eat while their IRS agents will monitor every financial aspect of your life in the guise of keeping you healthy. There will not be one part of your life they will not only know but control through the Unaffordable Healthcare Act. This is a dream come true for the central planners who run the Communist....er, I mean....…Democrat Party and the worst nightmare for your average American.

============================================================

How to middle finger the O/Crats: We know the O/Care ship is listing---
ready to heave--- maybe do a Costa Concordia into the Potomac.

THE BAD NEWS KEEPS COMING Reuters reports the US government on Wednesday scaled back its projections for Obamacare's impact in 2014, saying the law would generate slower healthcare spending growth and provide coverage to only half as many of America's uninsured as anticipated last year.

The biggest factor in the change stems from the U.S. Supreme Court verdict last year allowing each state to decide whether to expand the public Medicaid program for the poor under Obama's healthcare reform law. Republican leaders in nearly half of the nation's 50 states have rejected the expansion.

HHS now expects 11 million uninsured Americans to obtain coverage next year, down from about 22 million projected a year ago, according to the report, which appeared in the journal Health Affairs. (Excerpt) Read more at reuters.com ...

=====================================================

There's also lawsuits and state problems.

HERE'S HOW THEY'RE STOPPING OBAMACARE A West Virginia nonprofit has turned down a federal grant it received to help residents navigate new health insurance options under the Affordable Care Act after it received an inquiry from Attorney General Patrick Morrisey about how it would protect consumer information. Clarksburg-based West Virginia Parent Training Inc. did not respond to a letter it received from Morrisey directing it to answer 26 questions about the group's personnel and hiring practices, including employee background checks and employee monitoring programs, the Sunday Gazette-Mail (http://bit.ly/17M1QVe) reported. (Excerpt) Read more at sanluisobispo.com ...

YOUR TURN--Contact your state AG---ask him/her to issue a letter of inquiry to groups receiving federal "Navigator" grants. The inquiry should center on questions WRT how the group intends to protect consumer data.

In particular, the questionnaire should ask if the tax-funded "Navigator" program intends to transfer personal/ financial/medical data of the insured to the local/county/national Democrat Party, relevant Unions, banks, investment companies, drug companies, insurance companies. Trial Lawyers' associations and whether "Navigators" have sub rosa contracts with these, and other groups, plan to profit, to provide significant info to enrich databases for pecuniary purposes.

The AG also needs to confirm (1) whether the "navigator" was ever convicted of a felony....... and....(2) whether the "navigator" can be bonded.

Most importantly demand that your AG enforce the requirement that "Navigators" must have a state insurance license (consists of a comprehensive test on all aspects of insurance and compels a background check).

=======================================================

PLANNED PARENTHOOD WILL HAVE ACCESS TO SS#, TAX, MEDICAL INFORMATION
Breitbart Big Government ^ | 8/23/2013 | William Bigelow / FR Posted by markomalley

EXCERPT Planned Parenthood is about to obtain access to your Social Security number, tax form, bank account, and medical records.

With the advent of ObamaCare, consumers buying health insurance through health care exchanges will be required to speak to “navigators.” “Navigators” are supposed to help consumers find the best coverage and ascertain whether they are eligible for a federal subsidy.

Any “navigator” will have access to the federal data hub, which holds information from the Department of Health and Human Services, the IRS, the Social Security Administration, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Defense Department, the Office of Personnel Management, the Veterans Health Administration, and the Peace Corps.

Planned Parenthood received $655,000 from the Obama administration to hire navigators. In Iowa, Planned Parenthood of the Heartland received $214,427; in Montana, Intermountain Planned Parenthood, Inc. got $295,604; and in New Hampshire, Planned Parenthood of Northern New England raked in $145,161.

And there is not much scrutiny over who these “navigators” will be; HHS will not require background checks or fingerprinting, and a previous criminal conviction, even if it was for identity theft , will not trigger a rejection. To make matters worse, the administration has cut the new employees’ training from 30 hours to 20 and reduced screening.

===========================================

OKLAHOMA WINS FIRST OCARE BATTLE: Quoting AG Pruitt--- "Obamacare was meant to be so open-ended that it could mean anything. We are seeing thousands of pages of new rules being written, both by HHS and the IRS. The open-ended interpretation of Obamacare enables this.....if the law doesn't contain a particular provision, no problem. They just make it up as they go along."

"Such is the case that involves the OK lawsuit."

“The court rejected the federal government’s argument that Oklahoma lacked standing to challenge the law, allowing us to proceed with this pivotal case,” “We’re optimistic the court will recognize what states have known for months that the IRS disregarded the law by making the large employer mandate effective in Oklahoma or in any of the 33 other states without a state health care exchange.”

REFERENCE Oklahoma challenged implementation of the Affordable Care Act after the IRS finalized a rule that would allow the federal government to punish “large employers,” including local government, with millions of dollars in tax penalties in states without state health care exchanges, which is not allowed under the health care law.

“Congress provided a choice for Oklahoma and other states in implementation of the health care law, and the IRS is attempting to take that away by rule,” General Pruitt said. “The administration miscalculated how many states would support this law, so now they’re using the IRS to push through provisions that Congress did not pass.”

=================================================

PROTECT YOURSELF---Obamacare is easy pickins for identity thieves. Steps to take to minimize risk of identity theft:

1. Contact the IRS Identity Protection Specialized Unit at 1-800-908-4490

2. Order a tax account transcript from the IRS that verifies basic personal data along with details of your tax return filed, which may come in handy if you are checking to see whether someone else filed a fraudulent return on your behalf

The Federal Trade Commission (link at website) also lists several steps you must take if you have been a victim of identity theft.

ironic that BHO defeated hillary in the primaries by running on hope, HEALING, and UNITY — and implying that she was too divisive a figure to get anything done in WDC.

The Clown Prince is whining. nobama is such a flaccid loser. Not only is nobama the ultimate failed president, he is a failure as a human being. If only there were leadership in congress...then, they would impeach, convict and imprison this weak buffoon.

Gears don't have "traction" - they are either engaged and meshing or not. Traction refers to the...

0' (aka, the POS) is correct in this case. The economy *IS* in traction. According to Websters, Traction: "Medicine/Medical . the deliberate and prolonged pulling of a muscle, organ, or the like, as by weights, to correct dislocation, relieve pressure, etc. "

Here are some examples of the state of being "in traction"...

“Raising the debt ceiling is simply authorizing the Treasury to pay for what congress has already authorized,”

No, it's authorizing more spending. If the Rs authorize a raise of the ceiling, 0bama will at some time say it has to be raised again to pay for what's already been authorized.

Make this point Repubs.

Also, tie debt ceiling increase to higher taxes DIRECTLY.

America’s credit was downgraded for the first time under Obamugabe.

********
Yet we keep spending more and more trillions like it never happened. We are much deeper in debt since then so why has America’s credit not been downgraded again?

Typical response from Bammy (and most democrats), assume the “moral high ground,” and exert his importance in the matter.
