If the Republicans in the House knuckle under to this, they will have revealed themselves to be less than useless. We would be better off with no party at all.

This is their game plan for the 2014 elections.

They need to 1) distract as much as possible from the Obamacare train wreck, 2) gin up their base to come out and vote which is more of a challenge in the mid-terms, and 3) split the GOP so there is not a united campaign message.

Cruz, with his Cuban heritage, should be on the front lines in this battle. Can’t really count on Rubio as he’s pro-amnesty.

If Obama says to do it then the GOP must, after all we got that ‘income verification’ out of yesterdays deal.

OPPPS, that was already in Obama-care and Obama ignored it.

Is there any GOOD reason why the House is still in session?

Because, after all, we had an election. And it was decided that everyone is a minion of King Obummer.

I do not agree.

The Republican Party was not universally opposed to Obamacare, regardless of the breakout on this particular site.

American jobs are being sent overseas, and insurance is becoming a bigger and bigger issue.

I support Cruz, Lee and Palin strongly, even if I do not agree with them on Healthcare.

But on American jobs, stand aside.

It will be a huge tidal wave, to bring back American jobs and stop “globalizing” to America’s detriment.

Hire Americans.

Seems like after that last fiasco passing all those alternate CRs on nights and weekends that the House should take a long vacation through Christmas, now that the crisis is over.

Them working on amnesty bills now cant result in anything good.

That's not far from the truth, Mrsmel. The final bill included a $174,000 "death benefit" for the wealthy widow of Sen Lautenberg---who died worth $57 million.

The scuzzballs dish out $175,000.00 to a multi-millionaire senator's widow......at the same time they screw our veterans, widows and orphans out of death benefits and health-care expenses.

Pols freely stealing from veterans while increasing their own wealth.....is nauseating. The death benefit is the tip of the iceberg. The greedy pols got zillions of ways to siphon off tax dollars for themselves. It's known that once they get into office---they do not spend a single solitary cent of their own money---they force struggling taxpayers to foot all their bills.

The area around the capital----where they all live---has been designated the wealthiest in the nation. Its about time we ask how these creeps can afford these sprawling mansions, built on prime real estate, on a "govt salary."

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

And speaking of Congress screwing over taxpayers---let us not forget the pol parasites in the Room At The Top.

As one example of the screw-over---Obamacare is nothing more than a trillion dollar slush fund for WH insiders and cronies.

INCONVENIENT FACTOID one story surfaced last week that the same crew that got the $634 million contract for the DOA ObamaCare website were former data/media/social media suckups from the Obama campaign.

INCONVENIENT FACTOID Incudes suckup Toni Townes-Whitley, Senior Vice President at CGI Federal for Civilian Agency programs, Princeton Class of 1985---same dumbed-down class as Michelle Obama. Both are members of Association of Black Princeton Alumni.

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

(Sniffle) I'm just afraid good ol' Chicago Val got Carpel-Tunnel Syndrome setting up all those offshore accounts for the Obamatoids......all of 'em salivating over the hundreds of millions of O/care dollars they thought would be pouring in (sob).

Golly, gee. I hope Mrs O did not have to cancel her order for new diamonds---she might actually be forced to wear her old diamonds (wipes away tears).

Mrs O wore her pricey diamond bangles (bought on a govt salary?) at a Texas DNC fund-raiser, attended by "tolerant and compassionate" Dems....raising big bucks to keep Mr O in office so he could work for "the poor."

Mrs O's diamond Gothic cuff was priced at $15,350 set with 2.17 carats in diamonds and the Quatrefoil bracelet at $11,800 set with 1.73 carats in diamonds. (Excerpt) Read more at houston.culturemap.com.

We cannot take a defeatist view. We must do everything we can to put pressure on our Reps. The consequences of passing this are much worse than of anything else so far. At the least we must put up a fight, not make it easy for them. The far left’s plan is to wear us down, to have us give up.

The answer is simple. With all of the difficulties with Obamacare, now is not the time to take on another major initiative.

If that doesn't happen, preparations for the Brave New World become very real.

Vote-crazed Dems' 2014 mid-term game plan: 1) distract as much as possible from the Obamacare train wreck, 2) gin up their base turnout which is more of a challenge in mid-terms, and, 3) split the GOP so there is not a united campaign message.

N-i-c-e insight.

How hard is it gonna be for Dems? Take a look at a DailyKos blogger's lament.

BLOGGER: "My wife and I just got updates from Kaiser telling us what our increased 2014 rates will be. We had been paying $168 for her and $150 for mine. We have a high deductible. We are generally healthy people who don’t go to the doctor often. The insurance is in case of a major catastrophe.

Well, now, because of Obamacare, my wife’s rate is gong to $302 per month and mine is jumping to $284. I am canceling insurance for us and I am not paying any f***ing penalty. What the hell kind of reform is this?"

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

Remember, "we had to pass it to see what's in it."

ROTFL.

Unclench, if you can....Mrs Grifter's diamond flaunting reminds me of the greedy, conniving Clintons:

The Clintons' shady proclivities are unveiled in the recent NYT story. Corruption, greed, entitlement, nepotism, cronyism. The Clintons didn't have a pot to *** in in Arkansas---never even had a home to call their own. Now they're multi millionaires.......the connivers have perfected the scam WRT gaming the govt system for themselves. More below.

Clinton grifting....cont.

There needs to be a thorough going-over of the three Clinton Foundations. We need to know who pays/funds the Clinton's lifestyle/political ambitions---- especially b/c Hillary is running for prez. It is important to know to whom the Clinton's are truly indebted.

NY POST EXCERPT ----The Bill Clinton Foundation has spent more than $50 million on travel expenses — Bill Clinton’s foundation has spent more than $50 million on travel expenses since 2003, an analysis of the nonprofit’s tax forms reveal.....includes $4.2 million in 2011 for the William J. Clinton Foundation (to which Hillary and Chelsea are attached); $730,000 for the Clinton Global Health Initiative; and $7.2 million for the Clinton Health Action Initiative (CHAI).

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

How many ways can the conniving Clintons use their name to launder money?

<><> The William J. Clinton Family Foundation......

<><> the Clinton Global Health Initiative......

<><> the Clinton Health Action Initiative (CHAI).

More importantly, what is the connection between Corzine's MF Global, Teneo (which paid Bill Clinton $50,000 per month), The Clintons multiple tax-exempt foundations, and Muslim money-Laundering?

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

The more cynical among us might wonder about : and the Clintons' Foundations are money laundering for the Muslim Brotherhood.

<><> Teneo Holdings---Clinton is Bd Chair---hirted out as strategic advisors,"

<><>Huma Abedin had “State Dept special status" while a private contractor for Teneo Holdings,

<><> Obama pal Jon Corzine and his failed investment company (MFG "misplaced" $1.4 Billion)

<><> Corzine hired Teneo and Bill Clinton @ $50,000 PER MONTH.

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

LET'S STROLL DOWN MEMORY LANE WITH BILL AND HILL As President, Bill Clinton made policies that raised hundreds of billions (if not trillions) of dollars for his obscenely-rich donor/pals.

His North American Free Trade initiative made it easy for, and even encouraged, corporations to outsource jobs and then import their products back into the U.S...... The repeal of Glass-Steagall on his watch sent Wall Street into the money-making frenzy that led to the Great Recession/Depression of 2008......and subsequent taxpayer bailouts.

In exchange for these obscene gifts of corporate welfare, at the expense of America's middle and working classes, you'd think the Clintons' rich friends would have no trouble coughing up a mere $250 million endowment for the foundation.

Now it seems, the captains of crony capitalism are begging off....they just don't feel they have enough money to help their old friends Bill and Hillary secure their so-called "legacy."

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

Sen Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) is probing Hillary aide’s employment status, asking how Huma Abedin got a sweetheart deal as a private six-figure consultant while at the State Department. Abedin and hubby, disgraced sexter/loser ex-Rep. Anthony Weiner, hauled in some $350,000 in outside income on top of Abedin’s $135,000 govt salary.

Abedin held “special government employee” status, and worked a sideline---as a private contractor. One of her clients was Bill CLinton's Teneo Holdings, a consulting firm that calls itself the “next chapter in strategic advisory.”

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

HUMAN EVENTS: Last Dec, a former employee of bankrupt MF Global accused former president Clinton----chairman of Teneo's advisory board----of collecting $50,000 per month through his Teneo advisory firm in the months before MFG careened towards its Halloween filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, as hundreds of millions of investor funds disappeared.

Teneo was hired by MF Global’s former CEO Jon S. Corzine to improve his image and to enhance his connections with Clinton’s political family, said the employee, who asked that his name be withheld because he feared retribution, according to HE.

The Teneo contract with MF Global lasted at least five months, the souce said. The board cancelled it after Corzine resigned. The source, who is no longer associated with MF Global, said Teneo is a dual-track company with one side devoted to merchant and investment banking and the other side set up to provide image and strategy consulting services.

CAN YOU SAY MONEY LAUNDERING? The trustee for screwed MFG investors later sued JPMorgan bank for return of about $450M that MFG had transferred to the bank.

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

HOW MANY MONEY LAUNDERING SCAMS ARE THERE? LET US COUNT THE WAYS------Ponzi King Madoff screwed many but he also laundered money for tax-exempt foundations/groups that handed him millions of dollars.

When he went to jail, investigators found Madoff had stashed billions offshore---into a labyrinth of financial entities. Some $8.9 billion was funneled to Madoff through a dozen so-called feeder funds based in Europe, the Caribbean and Central America......a labyrinth of hedge funds, management companies and service providers that, to unsuspecting outsiders, seemed to compose a formidable system of checks and balances.

But the purpose of this complex architecture was just the opposite: the feeder funds provided different modes for directing money to Madoff in order to avoid scrutiny.

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

Billy Boy Clinton was grinning like a simpering fool at the annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative Foundation....notwithstanding the bombshell news that Clinton had employed a Muzzie terrorist....and the Clinton Foundations were outed for shady dealings. Read on.

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

THE CLINTON FOUNDATIONS / MUSLIM TERRORISM CONNECTION --- The recent story that a Muslim terrorist was working at the Clinton Foundation AND conducting terrorist activities at the same time, explains why the Clintons just remade themselves into the hallowed "Clinton Family Foundation."

The "Holy Family."

The Clintons' 24/7 self-promotion--a familiar do-good liberal schtick: whining about "helping" the needy, and hoping to make a buck on it.

To me it is the final nail he is driving into the coffin. He wants all these illegals in to suck at the teet of Commiecare so that the rates skyrocket and the people who could afford it will then be unable to afford it and as a result the amount of people owing fines will skyrocket. The government then has a direct avenue to take everything you own and the commie act of redistribution begins. Can't pay the fine of thousands of dollars? In comes the IRS with their liens, and possessions and auctions. Remember: They classified the fine as a tax, and how does the government treat people who can't pay their taxes? Helloooo....

That’s why Obama is going to have to thrown a HUGE bone to his base - so it will be a consolation when they find out how Obamascam hurts them.

But it’s also most important to gin up the low information voter. Most of those won’t be concerned in the least about Obamascam because they don’t pay a cent for either health insurance or health care - courtesy of the taxpayers.

Explaining the pain of obamacare to his worshipers will be the easiest thing Obama has ever done. He will simply say that is all the fault of the Republicans, and his base, as you refer to them as, I refer to them as his worshipers, and they will believe him. They may not believe anyone else that tells them that, but they will believe him.
